In his working days, he spends long hours going over slate papeis Wjliich fnust/ come before hi:n and doing other formal things demanded of English king. have been sovereign of England. The king has flown a; number of limes since then and shows every inclination to continue doing so. _ He has broken kingly precedents in other ways, too. If he wants to visit the bnsine.ss offices of liis Duchy of Cornwall, not. far from Buckingham Palace, he walks just like plain John Smith. He doesn't wail for his car. It is 'raining and, like John Smith, he hoisls his umbrella and Irudgcs along.- Amalcur Gardener : Early in May there was • the annual flower show in Louden. The king is an ardent gardener One of the most touching of these was on April 9 when he went lo' Westminster Abucy personally to bestow Maundy money on 42 old men and 42 old women, tho number 42 equalling that of nis years. It was the secoiul time in 250 years that an En sovereign had "made his maiind" in person. The last, time was when his father did so in 1932. In nil such state mailers he sho\vs an inclination piously lo follow in his falhcr's foolsleps. Bi't in less formal affaire or in affairs Ihat he chooses to make informal, he has already shown himself lo be himself and no shadow of King George. It is lor tliis reason thai when llic official period cf mourning for the royal family 'is* over many expect a rather new deal .with a icw slant on things giveji by Alng Edward himself.
