Loyal Subjects

It doesn't happen every day, but when it does, we like to make special recognition of it here. "Loyal Subject of the Day" is in honour of those Knight Grand Scribes external to this blog, who have demonstrated a measure of defiance against the Cult of Progress, through traditional allegiance to the Crown.

All it takes is one book, one article or one post in defence of the British Monarchy and, if of a high enough quality, we will track it here. Not only the present ones, but all such worthies going back into the ancient mists of time. This growing compendium is therefore a massive undertaking that will require mountains of research, but a very useful resource when complete, if ever. Without further due therefore, from newest to oldest, previous loyal subjects of the day include:
