Lendo um artigo no Guardian sobre o filme The King's Speech, achei interessante essa opinião do articulista sobre o impacto da Rainha na imaginação do povo. Fiquei imaginando essa personagem ter tido a oportunidade de se reunir semanalmente com todos os primeiro-ministros do país, desde os anos 50...
"Consider this fact: the Queen has met weekly with 12 prime ministers – and the first of these was Churchill, a figure as giant and remote from most younger Britons as Nelson or Wellington.
This is central to the grip the Queen continues to exert on our collective imagination: she is a living connection to the event that has become our founding story, indeed, she is the last public figure anywhere in the world with a genuine tie to the second world war. That, alongside a longevity which makes her a rare constant in the memories of young and old alike, is one reason why republicans will never find support for a move against her."
