For the sake of tradition

As usual, the comments make the post:

Queen makes Prince William Knight of the Thistle: The Duke of Cambridge has been given the highest honour in Scotland after being installed as a Knight of the Thistle at a service in Edinburgh.

I suppose in my naivety I don’t understand the average Brit republican’s disdain for pomp and ceremony such as this. Or maybe they are just jealous? It’s the continuation of tradition that gives stability and continuity to a society.

It’s why as an American I’m proud we still celebrate our Independence all these years later. When you forget your traditions, you lose sight of where you came from.
