The Queen Of Canada, Celebrated.
I found the outpouring of respect for our Queen very enjoyable to watch. I wish I was close enough to have lined up to see her. As a matter of fact, I wish my boys could have gone to Ottawa to see, not only her, but our Parliament buildings.
The media couldn't hide her visit, and they also couldn't hide our PM's obvious respect and admiration for the Queen. If Obama had any smarts, he would have made sure to greet her. Oh well, we know he is an empty box, kids love to play in them, but the real goods have already been taken out, and only the shell remains.
I honestly don't know how I will feel if Prince Charles becomes King. He was too weak to prevent his disastrous marriage to Princess Diane, and as a potential King, should never have been fooling around with Camilla, a married woman. He is also bonkers about climate change. The Queen might be smart to skip that whole generation and go for Prince William as the next heir to the throne. Young as he is, he seems really grounded, and he might be able to stop the commonwealth countries from rejecting the monarchy. With Charles as King, I would vote for Canada to break ties with the monarchy. Seriously, the guy is nice, but not King material.
Whatever happens, we are much better for having had the Queen visit us.
