Fashionable to follow Roman marshal, suitable for royalty (9)
I believe the answer is:
'fashionable to follow roman marshal suitable for royalty' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.
'fashionable to follow roman marshal' is the wordplay.
'fashionable' becomes 'chic' (chic means stylish or fashionable).
'to follow' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'marshal' indicates anagramming the letters (I've seen 'marshals' mean this (marshal can mean to gather)).
'roman' with letters rearranged gives 'monar'.
'chic' after 'monar' is 'MONARCHIC'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for monarchic that I've seen before include "of head of state" , "Like top person" , "Sovereign's" , "from a sovereign" .)
