    Best answer: Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of the UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND NORTHERN IRELAND. The British monarch has reigned over England, Scotland, and Ireland for centuries, first a separate realms, until some realms were united into one, and another partitioned into a realm and the rest of the country a republic.

    1. During the reign of Queen Anne, May 1, 1707, the Acts of Union ENDED separate realms of England, Wales, Scotland. These territories became the United Kingdom of Great Britain. The other realm reigned by Anne Stuart was Ireland.

    2. When Ireland separated in 1921, the realm became Northern Ireland, reigned by the British monarch. The rest of Ireland became a republic.

  • While walking down the street, if you just happened upon one of the royal family out and about when they were off duty, would you faint?

    Best answer: If it were Harry or William, I'd invite them to the nearest boozah, for a very large, double, enormous vodka and tonic and if it were any of the others, just ignore them by looking in a shop window, at all of the second hand crowns and tiaras on sale.

  • Do you think King Charles First felt humiliated at being executed?

    Best answer: I think "humiliation" isn't quite the emotion one feels when facing execution. However, the block was unusually low, as he pointed out, and it's clear that this was intended to be rather humiliating. He seems to have faced his death bravely. As for bestowing grisly deaths on others, the King... show more
    Best answer: I think "humiliation" isn't quite the emotion one feels when facing execution.

    However, the block was unusually low, as he pointed out, and it's clear that this was intended to be rather humiliating.

    He seems to have faced his death bravely. As for bestowing grisly deaths on others, the King did not personally impose the death penalty. That was done by courts. Moreover, beheading was considered an honorable and quick death, reserved for the well-born. It was not regarded as "grisly". There were far worse ways to die.

  • Why doesn’t the royal family move the royal wedding up to May 12?

    Best answer: Presumably, they had a specific reason for choosing the 19th. As for the Cup Final, my guess is that the wedding will be taking place in the morning, around 11, as royal weddings usually do, and that the Cup Final will be played in the afternoon or evening. There won't be a huge conflict. According to a site... show more

    According to a site on which you can purchase tickets for the Cup Final, the time hasn't been announced yet. That suggests that they can schedule it late in the day if they want to, if it's expedient.

  • Why do so many people ignore that Princess Diana threw herself down the stairs, and her stepmother too?

    Best answer: I've never heard that she threw her stepmother down a flight of stairs, but she did admit to throwing herself down a flight of stairs very early in her marriage and while pregnant. She claimed that she'd done it in front of the Queen. She later backtracked on the story, having belatedly realized that it... show more
    Best answer: I've never heard that she threw her stepmother down a flight of stairs, but she did admit to throwing herself down a flight of stairs very early in her marriage and while pregnant. She claimed that she'd done it in front of the Queen.

    She later backtracked on the story, having belatedly realized that it didn't exactly make her look compos mentis. Diana floated a lot of different tales, looking for whatever worked to her advantage. As her own grandmother once remarked, Diana had a few problems with telling the truth.

    Why do people ignore it? Not everyone does. However, the Dianaphiles don't particularly like to dwell on anything that appears to tarnish her halo, or else they claim that whatever she did, it must have been all Charles and Camilla's fault. So convenient an explanation for her, er, "truth issues".

    Come to think of it, I believed Diana claimed that she threw plastic bags full of her stepmother's clothes down the stairs at Althorpe, after her father's death. If she was telling the truth about that (and who knows?), it was rather a childish and meanspirited thing to do to a recently widowed woman.

  • In the TV programme called The Crown, the monarch, at times, is referred to as either “the Queen of England”?

    Best answer: All that proves is that even the British don't get it right. I see "Queen of England" in British and Commonwealth media all the time. If they can't use the name of the country accurately, they have no business expecting anyone else to do so. However, most people know that "England" is... show more

    However, most people know that "England" is shorthand for the full title, and as people here have pointed out, she IS "Queen of England" as well as of a number of other places.
