    “She is Britain’s 40th monarch since William the Conqueror”

    No she’s not! She’s Britain’s 16th monarch since James VI & I who was the first British monarch.

  2. John Yogis, Monarchist League of Canada (Branch Secretary-Halifax and Southwest, Nova Scotia) says:

    Her Majesty is also Canada’s monarch.

    Elizabeth may be the 40th ENGLISH monarch since William the Conqueror but not British. She is the 62nd SCOTTISH monarch since King Kenneth MacAlpin, the first King of a united Scotland. As it was the King of Scots who took over the English throne and not the other way around the linage should be traced back through the Scottish line, not the English.

    Queen Elizabeth the second, was born at 17 Bruton Street, Mayfair London.
    It was the london residence of her maternal grandparents, The Earl and Countess of Strathmore and kinghorne. The Queen is also the queen of New Zealand.

    Nikola, the Queen is not Queen of England as there is no such title, she is Queen of the United Kingdom. She is not Queen of the Commonwealth, only of 16 of the 52 countries. And she is certainly not Queen of royals worldwide.
