"This is a crucifixion as well as a coronation. The best kings we have ever had have been Queens, and every year Kingship becomes less and less suitable for a man. A constitutional monarch has constantly to behave as if he were a mindless puppet in circumstances which would prove fatal to everybody, including himself, if he really were a mindless puppet."

So wrote Rebecca West (1892 1983) in this 1937 article in which she rants on about how the coronation of George the VI will turn the city of London upside down.
