We went over to Amy’s this afternoon for pizza and “The Queen,” two things that are probably not shared in the same sentence very often (does the Queen eat pizza? One will probably never know.) The movie was fabulous. I have to admit that quiet, intellectual movies are usually not my type. But then again NPR used to not be my type either.
The movie got me wandering about the role of the royals in the lives of the British. What do they mean? Obviously not all citizens agree with or even like the monarchy. But would there even be anything to compare them to for us? How would the feelings brought out by the death of a queen, for instance, compare to those for a President in office?
I tried Googling for my answer but to no avail. I will have to do some research.
