Coronations, Americans, and the Crown

Here are some reflections on Monarchy by John Beeler prompted by this thoughtful article by my friend Michael W. Davis, an American monarchist now living in Australia. Of course, as a Loyalist to the core I am far from "undecided" about the American Revolution, but welcome any deviation from the established "Patriot" narrative. Recently I've begun to watch (not entirely without reluctance) the new television series "TURN," about spies during the American Revolution. While viewers are clearly expected to side with the rebels, characters are well-rounded enough that is possible to side with the Tories if one really wishes.

Monday was the 77th anniversary of the Coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, an event always worth reflecting on.
