THE KING

THERE was never a period in modern times when the monarchy was more generally accepted without discussion, or more popularly acclaimed, than during the last fifty years. This is, at first sight, a startling fact. The royal family belongs by relationship and tradition to an order that has vanished. Yet its popularity has grown at the very time when that order was most in decay. The family circle of European rulers with which Queen Victoria was familiar has largely disappeared. But the King's position is now more solidly grounded in popular acceptance than ever. When, for instance, within a few years of the disappearance of its relatives, the Romanoffs, Hohenzollerns, Bourbons, and Hapsburgs, the British royal family was coisidered at a conference of the most radical party in the State, only one in ten was ready to vote for its removal, and even that minority voted on grounds of principle rather than from any feeling of urgency.
Yet it is worth examining earlier conditions to set the present ones against their historical background. It was not regarded as in any way unusual when a century ago the Duke of Wellington cancelled a state drive of William IV to the City for fear of riots against the King. The Duke himself had no illusions about the value of William and his brothers, for he said of them: "They are the damnedest millstones about the necks of any Government that can be imagined. They have insulted-personally insulted-two
