Let's get off the back of our Queen and instead take pride in the fact the Crown Estate generates so much revenue for our vital public services every year and that this fantastic British building will be preserved for future generations- and Governments- to reap the benefits of its grandeur.

No matter whether you are religious, agnostic or atheist, the great old churches and temples of this world carry a powerful charge of energy from the centuries of prayer, of song and of silence that have been carried out there. Even now, most folk hush themselves when they enter an ancient church and take a moment to feel the echo of the ages.

I still cannot believe that I have the privilege to know and work with Patrick Jephson, Princess Diana's first and only Chief of Staff.

When I arrived on these sunny shores over a decade ago, I, in my ignorance, expected Australia to be Britain in the sunshine (an attitude many Brits still think to be the case). I was wrong.

A Warning for the Windsors

Robin Lustig | Posted 18.03.2015 | UK
Robin Lustig

I don't think Prince Andrew is a serious threat to the survival of the House of Windsor. Even as the Queen's second son, he's pretty low down the succession pecking order, below Charles, William, the infant Prince George and Harry. And after all, our history is littered with princes behaving badly. The real threat to the family firm is Andrew's big brother.

Are the Media Obsessed With the British Royal Family?

Charlie Proctor | Posted 27.07.2014 | UK
Charlie Proctor

Overall, it is clear that we love the royal family, but why? Is it because we admire the work they do for charities? Is it that we idolise the family and try to be like them, particularly the younger members of the family? Or is it just propaganda that the media make us feed upon every day?

The efficacy of the system and the support it commands still depends on the person in charge. The Queen is above politics, a loyal public servant and as long as she remains in office the monarchy is assured. But her activist son means the prospects for monarchy in the future bodes ill...

y having a Head of State picked for no other reason than which womb they came from, we undermine every call for talent, entrepreneurship, and aspiration in this country. By denying any member of this nation the right to go for the top job, we create second-class citizens by default.

Can the Future King George Turn Out Psychologically 'Normal'?

Dr Raj Persaud | Posted 25.09.2013 | UK
Dr Raj Persaud

This person is going to have to develop the ability to dispassionately judge others, and their motivation, perhaps earlier than the rest of us have to. At the heart of all new relationships is going to be a central question - what's in it for them? It will take just a few bruising encounters of betrayal to the press, for George to close himself off to all new relationships, in a profoundly unhelpful manner.
