NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

^This is true in the US. Accurate or inaccurate.  Love it or *despise* it, it has caused nothing but a new level of praise for the Queen.  And, in better news, more people studying up on her.

^It was interesting that the newsman remarked that Elizabeth II looked very high up when she was seated in the Gold Coach.

I am most thoroughly enjoying The Crown, as are my young adult children.  Have wondered if there’s a thread for the show?

The whole documentary 'The Coronation' is now on YouTube. Some fascinating details about the Crown Jewels, preparations for the Coronation, the people who took part, film of the peers and peeresses and the other guests arriving etc. Little details about the jewels, like the ruby on the Imperial State Crown which is as big as a pigeon's egg, being worn on King Henry Vth helmet at the Battle of Agincourt and a plume from his helmet is actually inside the Jewel and you can see it in there.
