I had a great time watching the Royal Wedding yesterday. As a monarchist I was delighted, the whole event reaffirmed my faith in the Monarchy. As to why I'm a monarchist well, its a direct link to a thousand years of history and anchors the nation to the Anglosphere. It reminds us all that Shakespeare, Chaucer, the Magna Carter, Westminister democracy , the Common Law and the legends or Arthur and the Ring are as much a part of our heritage as that of the British people. Having the Queen, having the Union Jack in our flag is such a great in your face reminder of our links it should get through the thickest numbskulls' head.
