The Windsors are about land and land is about political control.
Charles Windsor has run his property empire with a degree of ruthlessness – witness the instant sacking of his personal staff, as he moved to take over Elizabeth’s household. In the coming economic crisis, Charles will continue to have an eye on property values and taxation. That is the true “continuity” provided by the Windsor monarchy. But such naked greed could demystify the Windsor family and open the path to its eventual demise.
