Whatever we may think of the merits – or not – of having a Royal, we must certainly admit that if we must have an iconic leader, the Queen is the best anyone could ever have. Any nation on Earth could dream of.
At a time when duty and mettle are rapidly becoming rarer qualities within my reach, I, I, the “me” reality TV brigade and their colleagues, she steadfast as the embodiment of hard work, duty and dignity, whatever the wayward members of her family may have achieved. (And lately, that number seems pretty much!).
On Wednesday, she returned to work and when welcoming her guests, Rear Admiral Macleod and Major General Millar, she carried a walking stick and said: “As you can see, I can not move”. However, her sense of responsibility overcomes the pain as she refuses to let it get in the way of her unchanging sense of responsibility.
She is truly a lesson to all of us, a beacon of duty in a country where a large portion of the population thinks they are in debt to subsist, and more.
And now, her eldest son – our future monarch – Prince Charles, while the Queen carries out her duties, appears to be facing police questioning as a police officer. witness of a cunning-sounding honor cash scam to donate to his charities.
Now at this point I would like to suggest that the Queen take Sophie Wessex, the wife of Prince Edward.
She has qualities that are enviable as well as those needed in the Royal Family – warmth, approachability, dignity, strong work ethic and sense of responsibility. This is partly due to having been a hard-working, self-made woman in her career before marrying Prince Edward – a rarity in the royal company.
She’s also a public relations specialist, a much-needed – and now, it seems, very often – required qualification for some members of The Firm.
I think Prince Andrew could benefit from a cup of tea, a comfortable sitting and long chat with the lovely Sophie, a lovely model of warmth, grace and dignity, an easy-going royal. almost as well as being a smart baker.
She should take a higher title during these difficult times for the royal family, when an indispensable role model among young members is much needed.
