The Empire strikes back

As far as I know, the Empire is gone. What remains is London and the Royal Family. The show must go on. People are watching.


For a fee you may enter the palace. Entry to the shop is free. I enter. Demand seems to be high.


A child is born. Join the party. Buy something.


I think, now I get the double meaning of “royalty”. I leave. I walk through the streets of London. Some things are as I remember.


And of course …


Some things appear to have changed.


I reach the banks of the River Thames. The sun is shining.


There is shade, if you want.


Children play in the fountains.


Under a bridge I pass a second hand book sale.


The Empire is gone. Long live the Empire.
