Crowned!

And if you want more, here’s my post from last year on why monarchies are a good thing, and also a portion of the Coronation Oath from sixty years ago.

Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel? Will you to the utmost of your power maintain in the United Kingdom the Protestant Reformed Religion established by law? Will you maintain and preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of England, and the doctrine, worship, discipline, and government thereof, as by law established in England? And will you preserve unto the Bishops and Clergy of England, and to the Churches there committed to their charge, all such rights and privileges, as by law do or shall appertain to them or any of them?
All this I promise to do

All of which is, together with the fact that today we remember and celebrate the Martyrs of Uganda, incredibly pertinent given the debate in the Lords over the next couple of days.
