Real winner from Trump’s visit to Great Britain was…the royal family

June 17, 2019

According to Larry Elliott, as published in The Guardian:

There was widespread praise for the way in which the Queen handled Trump…

Trump’s appearance highlighted that the monarchy has made itself virtually impregnable and that the republican cause in Britain has rarely been weaker.

It certainly does need thinking about, but there will be no referendum on the monarchy’s future any time soon. There was no mention of republicanism in Labour’s 2017 election manifesto and it’s hard to envisage the next one being any different. As things stand, it would be electoral suicide.
