This is the text of the comment. Analysis and positions of the writer.
I was in London For some Weeks in advance, there is no better place to experience the first warm days of the year: football training on well-worn pitches in the East End, Leicester Square packed with people you can barely walk around. A rowdy gang of girls with extra long eyelashes. Premier League Racing!
One evening I was waiting for a friend in a bar on the Southbank when Dean arrived. You know the type: between 55 and 60, somewhat elegantly dressed, someone who believes “no lady should sit alone at a bar.”
Now, of course, I have nothing against middle-aged Englishmen, I just don’t need them. Sometimes I feel like I’m alone. I spent half my youth behind the bar in various bars (the rest of the time I was on the other side) and the job description somewhat involved talking to lonely men passing by.
It may have taken three minutes From the time he introduced himself until we got to Dean’s feelings for the British royal house (pride, kinship) and five before we could even get to grips with Meghan Markle (“She cheated Harry away from his family!”). When I mentioned that I was a journalist, he widened his eyes:
Will you reach the coronation?!
The celebrations for the coronation of King Charles – formerly known as The Prince – really got underway this week and, dare I say, the biggest thing to happen in Britain this side of the millennium. Brexit might presage a dissenting opinion here. But the exit from the European Union took place in the presence of the so-called “The Stone of Destiny125 kg was actually used when Malcolm III was crowned King of Scotland in 1058? Did Boris Johnson deliver the Withdrawal Agreement in a 260-year-old taxi doused in gold? No, that’s exactly it.
With the heir to the throne married And the next fully-born generation, King Charles’ coronation will also mark the crescendo of Britain’s eventful royal half-century. Now, if the currency peg hadn’t fallen so soon, British royals wouldn’t have suffered a similar frenzy for years. So you definitely feel energized. Of course, it’s funny when the British declare Monday a holiday in order to take everything to court. Of course you understand, Dean.
Interestingly, it was longtime rock poet Nick Cave who said it best, when asked to explain why he agreed to be part of the delegation to Australia’s coronation:
– I have an inexplicable romantic relationship with kings; The strangeness that is about them, the profound strangeness of it all which perfectly reflects the strangeness of Britain itself.
This weekend choose Joy and Madness in the Brits. The wait makes for splendor three days and a party full of strange heads, swords of mercy with magical powers, and prayers to the guardian that no one could do any more, since no coronations had taken place in Britain for more than seventy years.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, head of the Church of England, once felt so passionate that he called out the “people’s salute”—a kind of collective prayer of devotion—that the mob would say during coronations. It read: “I swear I will be faithful to your majesty, as your heirs and successors, in accordance with the law. God help me.”
But we’ll have a lot of fun Apparently you don’t have that. The Republican Assembly of Great Britain described the motion as “deaf rhetoric” and “contempt for the people” and the Bishop’s press office was to step back and explain that some would recite the entire prayer, while “others may see it as a moment of internal reflection”.
I think and hope the dean reads the prayer in full tomorrow. I’m taking on him and all the other royal madmen at that moment.
