A Thought a Day - Day One

I will use this blog to write unedited thoughts outside of essays that I am currently working on.

I saw The Queen - and I watched it like a royal watcher. The Royal Family was in Balmoral at the time of Diana's death, and stayed there, hiding in the heather, and (according to the film) hunting stags - and I couldn't help but recall (or recalling someone else recall, as I wasn't born) how the royal family stayed in London during the Blitz, as to not separate themselves from the country in a great time of need. I wonder why the writers did not bring this up to present a counterpoint to the royal family's more recent behavior.
