with me having three replies to
share today. First up, Mr. Perceval-
Maxwell sent an interesting reply.
In response to what he thought of
the monarchy he replied:
"I love Prince Charles he has been an environmentalist for at least 40 years. Bush won over Gore because the USA does not have a Royal head of state. It is important."
"My Grandmother was presented before the King before she
was married as was the custom. We still have a chair from
the coronation. They would let you bring them home in the
The first part of the quote seems to refer to a ceremony held
in the UK, and sporadically in Canada, where debutantes
were presented to the Sovereign (known as 'coming out'). The
last such ceremony presided over by a reigning monarch was
in 1958 after which Her Majesty abolished the ceremony.
Finally, Mr. Perceval-Maxwell addressed the policy questions
but only explicitly addressed one of them:
"I would be in favour of having Royal pictures up etc."
As with the other candidates who have not held elected office
I could not find any public statements on the monarchy. That
said it was great to see the personal connection his family has
to the monarchy.
