Royal kiss

I was glad to see in the Daily Mail this morning a photograph of the Queen exchanging a family kiss with the Duchess of Cornwall in Cardiff, as the royal family attended the opening of the new Welsh Assemby building. The Queen’s expression was one of real pleasure. I am British and proud of it, and it was heartening to see the royal family getting it right in the eyes of the world.

 In my humble opinion Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will make an excellent Queen in due course.  She has dignity and stability. This marriage should have occurred a long time ago.

I know I shall make many readers angry by stating that Diana, Princess of Wales never was suitable. She had a powerful charisma, yes, and endeared herself to millions of Brits as well as overseas, but I do not believe she would have made a dignified and strong Queen. Nobel blood or not, she did not have it in her makeup. Noble blood does not ensure good judgement.

I remember reading at the time of her engagement to Prince Charles that the Spencer bloodline was more royal than the bloodline of the Queen. Noble blood and the ability to produce hiers were her credentials.  Of course the State and the Church undoubtedly had a heavy hand in the choice of wife for our future king. But there is nothing holy in sovereignty (an ancient belief); nothing sacred in noble blood. Much damage and unhappiness has been wrought in preserving this belief. 

Let us hope that unhappiness is now over for our royal family, and that from now on they preserve a unified front to show the rest of the world.
