There is good reason to giggle when thinking about America’s estrangement from anything royal. After all, the United States now has a George III two.point.oh! who travels regularly between some of his many castles and a whole family of royals and courtiers to attend to with tax money. Ironically, the first George III is recognized by history as the one “who lost the American colonies”, and his descent into insanity certainly gave rise to a form of Deep State in which politicians and various operatives saw a chance to push forward their own agenda, if not to simply do away with the unbalanced king. Vive le roi!
