As news breaks that Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands has abdicated in favour of her son, Prince Willem-Alexander , it is possibly best to remind ourselves why, those of us from the UK should not be so desirous of a similar announcement.
Recently, we have seen the advancement of the PC political amendment to the UK constitution to overhaul the Crown’s bias in favour of male progeniture. I’m inclined, and I say this as a man, to go the whole hog, bypass equality and go for female progeniture. That way we could look forward to a Queen Anne II, if anything happened to Queen Elizabeth II, with a future Queen Zara I as next in line to the throne.
