We monarchists love our rituals and traditions. But there's one "ritual" I think we would all be happy to see the back of. I'm talking about the way that every time there's a widely covered royal event, the internet is immediately deluged with angry comments from people who proclaim that they Don't Care (and therefore presumably no one else should either). I posted the following yesterday on both Facebook (where it received 62 "Likes," including from a few non-Friends) and the Mail Online (where less gratifyingly it received a net total of five "red arrows," meaning that negative/red reactions outnumbered positive/green reactions by five). Blog readers, if you follow the second link which should take you directly to my comment, green arrows would be much appreciated!
