A defence of the Crown in The Sheaf December 28, 2013

In the University of Saskatchewan student paper The Sheaf some time ago an excellent article was written robustly rebutting republican arguments against the Crown.

‘As Canadians, we should support the constitutional monarchy — including the recent birth of our future king, Prince George of Cambridge.

Prince George was born over-a-month ago and, while I agree such extravagant media coverage is unjustified, pointedly rejecting the monarchy merely gives more publicity to a family who already gets enough attention because of their status. Further publicizing the issue only serves to legitimize the American media’s bizarre celebrity worship of a monarchy they have nothing to do with.

It is no secret that the Royal Family is not overly fond of the media — paparazzi had a heavy hand in the death of Princess Diana — so why on earth would Prince William want to have his new family subjected to the same media circus his mother endured? This kind of attention is not asked for.’
