The Crown: Elizabeth visits Queen Mary

In which, as my good friend, the notable historian and scholar of monarchy Ryan Hunter, puts it:

“Her Majesty Queen Mary (redoubtable queen consort of George V from 1910-1936, queen mother of Edward VIII and then George VI from 1936-1952, and grandmother to HM The Queen til her death in 1953) articulates a deeply conservative, traditional vision of monarchy as a divine blessing for the careful, dignified, and noble stewardship of peoples and a covenantal relationship between God, the monarch, and the people.”

Author: The Anglophilic Anglican

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which out techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
