So I’m watching The Crown on Netflix, real banger of a show, and Prince Phillip goes “you’ve taken my career and my home and my family name from me what kind of marriage is this” and I was like shit. he’s the woman in a traditional marriage. that’s a completely normal classic marriage, it’s just that the gender roles are reversed. I don’t know if that was intentional from the show writers but DAMN

“Despite Margaret and the now Queen Mum dropping their first curtsies before her, and a slightly miffed Philip told he must now trail behind her entering rooms, the money shot is unquestionably the spectral Queen Mary, covered in mourning dress, creakily sinking to her knees before her new sovereign.”
You understand, the titles, the… dukedom. They’re not the job. She is the job. She is the essence of your duty. Loving her. Protecting her. Of course, you’ll miss your career. But doing this for her, doing this for me… there may be no greater act of patriotism. Or love.
