I love France. I read some off place essay, most likely by a English writer., France would be better without the French. Well, let me take this a little further. Britain would be great without the aristocracy, and wannabe aristocrats. I am sure Elisabeth 2 married and loved Philippe because he was his own man. Not a pretender of aristocracal importance. Philipe was baptized Greek Orthodox, he “first” was a Prince of Greece and Denmark. His sisters married German Nazis as I read. His German was as good as his English! His mother was an Orthodox nun. He lived mostly middle class growing up as the odd kid out in a house that was not his because Greek was in turmoil. This Queen Elizabeth 2 will go down as the greatest monarch since Willian the Conquerer. Mostly because Philippe the almost orphan loved and protected her.
