Storyline

While domestic politics are completely taken over by elected politicians, diplomacy still gives precedence in protocol and thus de facto a say and influential ear to royals, especially the monarch as head of state, who formally represents the nation at state visits, in this case to US president Bush Jr. in the White House. Elaborate preparations cover all details, from route and security to logistics and menu. A sovereign for life outclasses elected officials in experience, which helps preserving a disproportional importance for Britain in internationals affairs, even outside the Commonwealth. Written by KGF Vissers
