Who wants transparency when you can have magic? Who wants prose when you can have poetry? Pull away the veil and what are you left with? An ordinary young woman of modest ability and little imagination. But wrap her up like this, anoint her with oil, and hey, presto, what do you have? A goddess.

Dearest Lilibet,
I know how you loved your papa, my son. And I know you will be as devastated as I am by this loss. But you must put those sentiments to one side now, for duty calls. The grief for your father’s death will be felt far and wide. Your people will need your strength and leadership. I have seen three great monarchies brought down through their failure to separate personal indulgences from duty. You must not allow yourself to make similar mistakes. And while you mourn your father, you must also mourn someone else. Elizabeth Mountbatten. For she has now been replaced by another person, Elizabeth Regina. The two Elizabeths will frequently be in conflict with one another. The fact is, the Crown must win. Must always win.

“I am aware that I am surrounded by people who feel they could do the job better. Strong people with powerful characters. But for better or worse, the crown has landed on my head.”  


‘Never let them see the real Elizabeth Windsor’

Watching this show again -  The show really shows how alone the wearer of the crown is. Switching off their personality. Masking there identity. Just wanted to do a video to that theme.
