A family on the throne is an interesting idea. It brings down the pride of sovereignty to the level of petty life.
Royalty is a government in which the attention of the nation is concentrated on one person doing interesting actions.
The best reason why Monarchy is a strong government is, that it is an intelligible government. The mass of mankind understand it, and they hardly anywhere in the world understand any other.
The Sovereign has, under a constitutional monarchy such as ours, three rights -- the right to be consulted, the right to encourage, the right to warn. And a king of great sense and sagacity would want no others.
A throne is only a bench covered with velvet.

I have nothing against the Queen of England. Even in my heart I never resented her for not being Jackie Kennedy. She is, to my mind, a very gallant lady, victimized by whoever it is who designs the tops of her uniforms.

A monarchy is the most expensive of all forms of government, the regal state requiring a costly parade, and he who depends on his own power to rule, must strengthen that power by bribing the active and enterprising whom he cannot intimidate.

Being a princess isn't all it's cracked up to be.
I'd like to be queen of people's hearts.
Call me Diana, not Princess Diana.
Everyone likes flattery; and when you come to Royalty you should lay it on with a trowel.
