Bow Group Research Fellow for Transatlantic Affairs Lee Cohen wrote an opinion piece for Fox News on the occasion of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee how the monarch is “a living example of how important the wisdom of the past is to a stable optimistic future”.
Mr Cohen wrote for the American news network:
For 70 years — from Truman to Biden, from Elvis to Gaga and from post-Blitz to COVID, the queen has been a constant in our lives. But her significance goes far beyond simple longevity.
If any are left wondering, consider how even heads of global superpowers and U.S. celebrities are humbled to meet her. Perhaps they whose leverage comes from large GDPs, weapons arsenals, or Instagram followers, see in her what is lacking in themselves – a sincere and lifelong commitment to nation, duty and service to others.
In our times of toxic division, when leading societal institutions feel compelled to apologize for “historical sins,” Queen Elizabeth is a living example of how important mindfulness of continuity and the wisdom of the past is to a stable and optimistic future.
