Someone forgot to tell Lawrence “woke up on the wrong side of the bed” O’Donnell that the Revolutionary War ended in 1783:

“The British crown has spilt more blood around the world and caused more oppression and suffering in the world than any other regime still standing. If your people were among the tortured or the starved or the murdered or the oppressed victims of the crown, then you may not be so welcoming of the British Royal Family in your home, even on your television screen. If you are the forgiving sort, the type that doesn’t hold a grudge for hundreds of years or decades, depending on when violence was last visited upon your people in the name of the British crown, perhaps you can look at the current crowd of hapless, harmless royals as something other than an indelible bloody stain on your people’s history.”
