Quotes for the Monarchy

Conservative Home has some choice quotes on the value of a constitutional monarchy, with my favourites being:

"Those who imagine that a politician would make a better figurehead than a hereditary monarch might perhaps make the acquaintance of more politicians." - Margaret Thatcher

and, for those who can count,

"According to the UN, seven of the top 10 countries in the world in terms of quality of life are constitutional monarchies." - Philip Blond

To which I would add:

“The monarchy is so extraordinarily useful. When Britain wins a battle she shouts, "God save the Queen"; when she loses, she votes down the prime minister.” - Winston Churchill
