It's not "modernization" that brings crowds out for royal occasions.
The monarchy in 2022 should never be about crowd pleasing or giving the 'people' what they want to see. Imagine what it would turn into.... Yikes!
It's not "modernization" that brings crowds out for royal occasions. We'll see if King Charles's ideas of innovation are in line with those which some of this board seem to favor. I have my doubts. The initial social media reports of the episode are not ageing well.
Nor does it seem like an easy step to replace people familiar with a one thousand year old institution
Positive changes like those which King Charles seems to envision are never easy. And some of the “people familiar with a one thousand year old institution” are, by the very nature of their entrenched long-held positions, obstacles to modernization. Tactless Lady Susan is just the tip of a privileged lily-white iceberg representative of a past reality. I hope the King and Queen keep trying new things, as Charles has been contemplating innovation and trimming for a long time.
