Quotes:
From Bertie and Elizabeth (2002) (TV)
[talking at dinner about the forthcoming marriage of Bertie and Elizabeth]
Archbishop Lang: My feeling, Sir, is that the wedding of these two young people - the Duke and Duchess of York - should be filmed, if that is thought appropriate, but not be allowed to be recorded over the wireless. The people might listen to it in *inappropriate* places.
King George VI, aka 'Bertie': What exactly do you mean by that?
Archbishop Lang: Public houses, for example. They might also not remove their hats at solemn moments.
David - Edward VIII: [scornfully] Why this obsession with ritual?
King George V: Monarchy *is* ritual - Boy! That's why. Doing things in the prescribed manner. You've read your Badgett. Monarchy is magical, and you can't let daylight in upon the magic. Little by little the newspaper boys and the wireless boys will be flashing their cameras, poking their microphones under your noses, and one morning you'll wake up and there won't *be* any magic. There won't be any monarchy, either.
