Having witnessed the scenes of adulation / adoration and respect for Her Majesty these last few days ( and at a lower key, over the last 35 years) contrast and compare a Monarchy to a Republic. Can even the most blinkered Republican see a president enjoying the displays of love and loyalty that HM engenders? With a gun to the head is not without bias. Or is it all down to the Queen herself rather than the institution she represents? Let's ask.....finknottle.
