“The Queen is performing a national service. Every morning she has her breakfast, most days her outfit is already decided for her royal appointment – shake hands, give speeches. Every institution in our country wants its recognition and performance. Her life is prescribed. The Royal Family, as an institution, is social cement. The Queen holds the country together.

We all owe her our gratitude.”
