英女王效應

早前英國威廉王子與凱蒂外訪不丹和印度,舉手投足都備受注目;英女王伊莉莎伯九十大壽,國民更走上街開派對大肆慶祝,盡顯其顯赫地位。

 

雖說英國王室並無實權,但王室在英國人心中總帶着某種微妙的情意結。看著英國國民對英女王的熱愛之情,不禁讓人好奇:是什麼原因令這位有名無實的「統治者」仍可得到國民的愛戴?

 

英女王登基至今64年,是英國有史以來在位時間最長的君主。女王雖有特權任命首相,卻不能干預國會的施政決定。她專門出席各種國家慶典、接待外賓,以及每年在新的國會會期發表一篇講話,但需保持政治中立。

 

王室生活看似風光,但由於英女王自己帶頭樹立榜樣,王室成員的生活都儘量保持節儉。自1992年起,女王和菲臘親王開始向政府繳稅,每年大約付240萬英鎊。她亦會想辦法讓王室開源節流,如開放白金漢宮予遊客參觀。今年二月就有媒體拍到她度假完畢後選擇用火車而非直升機代步,十分為一眾英國國民的荷包著想。

另外,女王對子女要求嚴格,認為身為王室也需要參軍、服役,希望他們也能成為人民的榜樣。這也是她深得民心的原因之一。

 

英女王學識淵博,精通幾國語言。但她深知自己的定位,不會隨便濫用個人權力。孩童時期的她是在王宮裏接受家庭教育,師資極為優良。當年由Eton College校長Henry Marten負責私人教授她歷史課。

 

今年英女王九十歲生日實行與眾同樂,當日第一個行程便是會見一眾在溫莎堡外祝賀她誕辰的民眾,之後又和一班同樣九十歲生日的長者一起午聚慶祝。另外,她今年的生日蛋糕外表看似簡單,其實是出自BBC Great British Bake Off比賽冠軍Nadiya Hussain之手。女王今次反傳統點名穆斯林甜點師Nadiya製作生日蛋糕,亦贏得不少掌聲。

一位沒有實權的皇室成員仍能受盡愛戴,相反很多手握大權的領導人卻無法得到民心;英女王完美示範了要讓人心悅誠服,有一顆為人民設想和服務的心尤其重要。

 

事頭婆,好嘢!
