"The Royal Family and the “Crown” or “the Firm” they lead is an excellent case of a multicentenary institution for which the issue of succession is tied to the paradox of tradition vs innovation. Research on family firms can shed some light on the arguments in favor of either possible choices of a successor."

"Given the death of the Queen, is there any possibility of Canada abolishing the monarchy now that King Charles IIl with Queen Consort Camilla take her place, but seem to be less loved? Whatever one thinks of the new King and his consort, given the amending formula under our constitution, it will be impossible to abolish the role of the monarchy and its reserve powers under our Constitution."
