Those of a republican disposition dislike the very idea that, in the 21st century, a child can be born to rule…. [T]he politicians who are today issuing their New Year messages come and go, leaving varying degrees of success or failure in their wake. The monarch and the Royal family stay with us, the personification of nationhood.
