| notes on the text
The result of the reigns of Victoria and Edward VI has been to lift the crown again to a position which it had not occupied in men’s minds since the death of Elizabeth. It is not with our lips only that we are loyal to King George V, it is with our hearts also. The crown is not only the ‘golden circle’ that binds the Empire together; it is the greatest thing in that Empire.
