Monarchy: Is the time up?
I have no true love for the Monarchy, as it's a system that forces us mere subjects (not citizens) to live below it. We are commoners, then there is the aristocracy and royalty. It's a system that asserts a class hierarchy that no one can escape.
However, I am also pragmatic, and I fully understand that the Monarchy plays a pivotal role in the UK's soft power approach across the globe. The Monarchy cements alliances and is the bedrock of the Commonwealth of Nations.
