Contrast the poor example of King Jehoiachin with that of the British Royal Family during World War II. King George Vi and his wife Queen Elizabeth remained in Buckingham Palace throughout the War rather than fleeing to the countryside for safety. During the German Blitzkrieg of London from September 1940 through May of 1941 Buckingham Palace received nine direct hits from German bombs. During that time 1/3 of London was destroyed by enemy bombs, but King George and Queen Elizabeth kept visiting the many areas of the city hardest hit proving to the citizens of London that their leaders loved them. The King also made visits to his troops in North Africa and France during the heat of the War [SOURCE: “The British Royal Family During the War” as posted on http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk?Homework/war/royalfamily.htm].
