KING EDWARD NO PARTY POLITICIAN.

KING EDWARD NO PARTY POLITICIAN. Lord Knollys' letter concerning the ab- stention of the King from questions of party politics expresses only his Majesty's recognition of a principle which is as readily accepted by himself as it was by his Royal mother. But it was not always so, as we know from the information collected by Macaulay and other historians. George III was very frequently engaged in struggles with his ministers, and attempting to con- trol the decisions of Parliament. When Pitt proposed to introduce a Bill for the removal of Catholic disabilities, the King declared that he would never consent, where- upon Pitt resigned, and, later, his Majesty demanded from the Ministers who had taken office upon Pitt's death a written undertaking that they would never propose to him "any measure of concession to the Catholics, or even connected with the question." George IV attempted, feebly, to maintain a similar attitude, and William IV, who at any rate meant well, made unjustifiable use of his prerogative.
