    The Royal Narrative in a Brexit/Post-Brexit World

    There is no denial that the main driver behind the Brexit always has been anti-immigrant rhetoric- bogeyman. The reality is that although Prince Harry is the most popular member of the royal family, with an approval rating higher than the Queen’s, he is sixth in line to the throne, so his wedding had no constitutional significance whatsoever (that is why it was "allowed" to happen, in the first place).

This uprise was part of the Cold War that was always on the edge becoming a hot nuclear devasting super hot war.

This was the defeat of the French colonial power in Điện Biên Phủ and the Suez Crisis. Both crises showed the weakness of two empires still dominat at the beginning of the 20th century.
