  Al-Ahram Weekly | International | Madame la présidente?
Royal has been criticised for being more of a media figure than a genuine politician, supporters of rival candidates Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Laurent Fabius expressing their disappointment last weekend that party members had allowed themselves to be seduced by a "media personality".
In addition, Royal's few comments on party policy have shown her to be keen to distance herself from many of the party's flagship nostrums, such as the 35- hour working week introduced by the Jospin government in 2000 and the source of intense controversy ever since.
Profiles of Ségolène Royal have tended to focus on her "military" family, her father having been an army officer, and on an educational background, via the Institut d'études politiques ("Sciences Po") and the Ecole nationale d'administration, that puts her in the mainstream of the French elite, whatever the rhetoric of her "outsider" status may suggest.

 JO BURR MARGADANT | Gender, Vice, and the Political Imaginary in Postrevolutionary France: Reinterpreting the Failure ...
In fact, Marie-Amélie's position was doubly compromising for the royal image, since her presence in the public eye might serve as a reminder of the private nature of this family's relationship to the throne, but her absence could give the same impression.
The royal couple aligned themselves astutely by such means with a postrevolutionary bourgeois culture that made public life a masculine concern, while the queen avoided any public controversy that would have dishonored her and, thereby, brought dishonor on her family.
Certainly the difference between the French and English monarchies did not lie in the amount of private property belonging to the royal family, which was enormous in the English case as well.

 The Raw Story | Sarkozy sweeps to French presidential victory
Royal heard the result at her parliamentary constituency of Melle in western France.
His avowedly right-wing programme was in sharp contrast to Royal's promise to extend state protection via the creation of 500,000 public sector jobs and an increased minimum wage.
The crux of the second round campaign was Wednesday's televised debate, in which Royal was unexpectedly aggressive towards Sarkozy, at one point accusing him of "political immorality".

 [No title]
As many of the officers belonged to wealthy families, considerable sums of money were sent periodically from France, so that they were enabled, in many cases, to procure everything necessary for their comfort, and even for the enjoyment of life.
In many cases the French officers, being men of rank and education, were esteemed by the townspeople for their polite and agreeable manners, and were received in all public assemblies with high consideration and a courteous welcome.
The earliest lodges of French prisoners in England, of which we have any cognizance, were those at Basingstoke in 1756, Petersfield in 1758, and at Leeds in 1759-63, but of these we know nothing beyond the bare fact of their existence.

 British Homeopathy during two centuries by Peter Morrell
The current British Royals [House of Windsor] were very largely derived from the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha in Saxony, where all their Kings used homeopathy from the time it first came on the scene in the early 1800s via Hahnemann and his direct disciples.
Royals are undoubtedly aware of the impact any of their interests may have on the public mind, but to what extent they bother about it or cultivate it is very hard to determine with any certainty.
Royals might be attracted to homeopathy because it is rather nebulous, rather exclusive, rather special, 'divine' and private in the way they probably think they are.

The problem is that Royal, 52, whose partner François Hollande is the Socialist Party Secretary, is solidifying her standing by espousing what many in the party leadership consider decidedly un-socialist, practically treasonous ideas.
Royal said it had led "to a worsening situation for the most fragile people, especially women in low-qualification jobs" while giving middle-management employees longer vacations.
As for Royal herself, she has taken to wearing summery white, perhaps not an entirely subliminal counterpoint to the dirty politics du jour in her party and the conservative ruling government as well.

When the Russian Orthodox Church was finally convinced of the martyrdom of the Royal Family, His Holiness Patriarch Tikhon of Moscow and All of Russia held a memorial service for all the members of the Imperial Romanov Family forty days after the event.
At the root of so many claims of secret royal descent is illegitimacy, a glamorous way of explaining a quiet adoption within (or without) a family or birth of a child whose father/mother is unknown or unmentionable for one reason or another.
In the wake of the French Revolution claims of descent from noble or royal houses resulting from doomed romances between woman of generally inferior breeding and a guillotined nobleman became a convenient excuse for many unmarried mothers.
