Aisha Maniar Local time: Peer comments on this answer and responses from the answerer agree. Will become my newest favorite links: I want that dictionary now: Since it's originally French, I've told them what it literally means and I also mentioned that it's used in English which is the usage I am familiar with for this phrase: Solution to Marcia's concern would be say that in French and English in parenthesis, I guess. OED puts it as "privilege entails responsibility". No one - not even the most ardent republican - need feel left out in the rush to mark the Queen's 80th birthday today.
Both picture the monarch beaming as she opens some of her 20, birthday cards. Those looking for a tasteful retrospective of the Queen's life, along with a suitably reverential editorial, will find ample coverage in the Times and Telegraph.
The former notes that the "demeaning rumour and titillating gossip" of a decade ago have all but ceased and, with them, speculation that she might abdicate.

Happy to oblige Ma'am.

Those who want to hear a cogent case against the British monarchy can find it in the Guardian, which follows up its plea for the Queen to open her art collection to the public with a piece by Jonathan Freedland.
For republicans, it is a cause of decades-old frustration. For more than half a century, it has been impossible to get traction on the question of how we choose our head of state simply because the present incumbent has performed so effectively But the way this system works, her successor will be anointed the second she dies: If we want one, we have to have it now, so that we might reach a national consensus before the moment arises, not wait until it is too late.
But let's decide now that, when she goes, we bury this ludicrous institution with her. Last stand of a monarchy. The Times splashes, pointedly, with Britain's de facto First Lady and the GBP7, grooming bill she ran up during the general election.
