“Any change at any time for any purpose is highly to be deprecated.”
Remark attributed to George William Frederick Charles (1819-1904), second Duke of Cambridge, grandson of King George III, Earl of Tipperary, Baron Culloden, Field Marshal and Commander-in-Chief of the British Army, chief personal aide-de-camp to Queen Victoria, President of Christ’s Hospital and Ranger of Hyde Park. Born at Hanover in Germany, he was naturally opposed to innovation.
King George III, who reigned from 1760 to 1820, was the British monarch who went mad after losing his American colony to rebel tax-evaders led by George Washington.
