Throne Out?

Whether an intervention by the Queen swayed anyone who might otherwise have voted for Scottish independence, who knows?

But the ill-feeling that it has created, thanks to David Cameron, is now very real indeed. And if the monarchy exists for no other purpose, then it exists to safeguard the Union.

If the continuation of the monarchy imperils the continuation of the monarchy, then how can the monarchy survive? After what must be this 93-year-old monarch's last days, it probably cannot.

This dynasty has a remarkable instinct for survival. It now needs it. Not for the first time. But possibly for the last.
