9:38 am
that what she stood for was on the whole right, as embodied by her sons, her values are what are essential for the monarchy to relate to the people and to the world as a whole. >> royalists appear to be everywhere, in flight -- >> why are you so -- >> and on london's streets. >> i'm a devout royalist. >> do you have a favorite royal? >> i like william but i think harry is cheek. >> and with this baby comes hope that the best is yet to come.
