I declare before you
“I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.”
The Queen, 1947
Job done. Huge respect, admiration for the Queen, for what she represents for the UK, the world and France. We owe to the UK and to the courage of Elizabeth and her family (and to Churchill) to stand alone in defence of our liberty.
"We must not be daunted by the anxieties and hardships that the war has left behind for every nation of our commonwealth. We know that these things are the price we cheerfully undertook to pay for the high honour of standing alone, in defence of the liberty of the world.”
Now she is gone, who will give this unique feeling of unity and grandeur to the country?
