Allen Leech, who plays Tom Branson on the hit PBS show, has told the US TV host Andy Cohen that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge mentioned their feelings about the show on a recent gathering. "He actually said, 'I'm a big fan of the show—only now that my wife's had a baby,'" Leech continued.

In the next series - the most popular on Australian Television,  Lady Rose — played by Lily James — is presented by her Aunt Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) during her "coming out" to King George V and Queen Mary at Buckingham Palace.

Her Excellency descends into politics Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Saturday, 23 November 2013

It is a sad fact that as she approaches the end of her term as Governor-General, Quentin Bryce has blotted her copybook.

 It will be said she has damaged the institution. It is too robust for any long term damage. Her Excellency has damaged herself. She is now a divisive figure.  

By convention, and one would have thought commonsense, viceroys must be - and must appear to be - above politics.

Image 

By her descent into the political arena the Governor-General has, in a most spectacular way, breached that admirable rule.

This was not by way of some inadvertent throwaway line to a journalist as she once did when she was returning to Australia.

Her intervention, her descent into the political arena, was carefully considered and although subtly worded, was as clear as day.

It was in the course of a Boyer Lecture, an antipodean version of the BBC Reith Lectures. These are, we assume, never given without great preparation.

The inappropriateness of this  can be seen by a simple comparison. Can you imagine Queen Elizabeth II even considering giving the Reith Lectures, much less including some political slant ?

Contrast Her Majesty's carefully considered Christmas broadcasts and addresses on Commonwealth Day, occasions when The Queen speaks her own mind. They are always interesting but they are never political. After all we have enough politicians to do that ably assisted by a vast commentariat.

 

 

...breach of convention...
