Say what you like about the monarchy (and plenty will, as have I – mainly about their PR skills or lack thereof) but there is one thing that is very clear, the Queen was a pioneer and an inspiration to millions.
The Queen was also an unrivalled communicator.
Listening to the reports ever since the sad news broke last week, I have been struck by how often the phrase “made people feel comfortable“ came up.
You might be aware that there was criticism when, back in the late ’60’s, the Queen allowed cameras into the lives of the royals for “letting daylight in on the royal magic“.
That is quite possibly some of the most misguided criticism I have ever heard.
The magic was exactly that, the Queen was letting people in, everyone.
Thank you, Your Majesty.
God save The King.
