Re: Disarming in the Presence
Bemused greetings from Aedan,
I've never been a Royal Peer nor do I play one on stage but
I have stood behind quite a number of monarchs (5 out of
the last 6) as a Queen's Guard.
The prevailing attitudes that I remember were...
a) Why should I (the monarch) fear my subjects?
b) If there is a problem, that's what the guards are for in the
c) Remember how I got here in the first place? Why worry?
d) This scepter (or whatever) is really scary. Do you really want
to threaten me while I am holding it? (This last is due to at
least 2 different queens who loved swinging that mace/scepter
around and just looked for an excuse to use it.)
Any former/current Crown's want to comment??
