In this paper, Winnicott proposes to look at the place of the monarchy in Great Britain but not from the point of view of a specialist. The monarchy, he notes, is something we experience as part of our everyday lives. Winnicott notes the importance of the question ‘has God saved the Queen?’ and how behind it is the saying: ‘The King is dead, long live the King!’ The significance for Winnicott is that it implies that the monarchy survives the death of the reigning monarch.
