What did Spike think of the monarchy?
(This thought came into my head as I walked on the beach today)

I cannot recall him ever having spoken on the subject.
He was a son of Northern Irish Catholic parents.
Yet he was also a proud decorated veteran RAF chaplain.
I cannot recall ever having sung the national anthem at Sharston Mount.
Unlike the "great" schools that he wished to emulate, there were no portraits of the queen on the school premises.

So ...
Indifferent - unlikely
Closet republican?
Closet Royalist?

(Or is my memory omitting some important historical facts?)
