Could someone please discuss the Royal Rose some more.
I'm familar with the red and white roses of the War of the Roses (but
I constantly forget which was for the House of York and which for the
House of Lancaster). As far as I know though the rose as the
symbol of royality died out with the dynasty. I can't recall seeing
the rose used with the House of Windsor.
Did Eliot only intend to include the ancient royalty?
