You are absolutely correct. I have done that. During the wedding of William and Kate, not one of my friends could name any of the other royals attending the service. Plus, they didn't even care. Women commented on the clothes, and which woman tried to outshine each other, that was it. Plus what really annoyed me, the TV news commentators didn't do their homework as even they got names and countries wrong or just stated that "person was another royal from another country." I took a fit.

My personal friends had no idea who Spain's Letizia, Holland's Maxima, Norway's Mette-Merit, Belgium's Mathilde were but did recognize Denmark's Mary mainly because many have vacationed in Australia and have read articles on her while there. Maybe it is the same language thing, who knows, but Queen Elizabeth II is really the only royal most Americans recognize or even want to know anything about. When she is no longer with us, I doubt that the Americans will care as much. Most people here think I am silly to even know so much about royals. Just think it is a silly hobby of mine.

In the same way as her 80th birthday in 2006 and Diamond Jubilee in 2012 she is being glorified by the British press, and rightly so. Both the Telegraph, Times, Mail, Express, Sun and even the Mirror are going out of their way to pay tribute to her. There are also been souvenir editions. Many of these articles has already been posted in this thread.

These are just some of this very long article.

'Silence gives Queen titanic moral standing - Telegraph
Quote:
From the death of Prince Albert in 1861 to the Golden Jubilee in 1887, the Queen was largely invisible. A strong republican movement grew up. Her sometimes hysterical behaviour imperilled her position and that of the monarchy. A succession of devoted prime ministers – notably Disraeli and Salisbury, but also Gladstone, to whom she was wickedly ungrateful – shielded her excesses and caprices from public gaze. That our Queen is nothing like her great-great-grandmother is a high compliment.

The country has sometimes ill-treated her. The convulsion of national self-righteousness on the death of Diana, Princess of Wales was shameful, and the Queen conducted herself magnificently throughout it – and no thanks to the politicians of the day, who strove repulsively to make what capital they could from it. Similarly, the cry for her to pay income tax conveniently ignored the huge amounts already remitted to the Exchequer by the Crown Estates under a deal made in 1937. The relative frugality in which the Queen lives is almost embarrassing, given how hard she still works in her 90th year.

I have never seen why Walter Bagehot should be the ultimate authority on monarchy, with his definition of the three rights to advise, to encourage and to warn. He was a journalist expressing his opinion, like Dr Starkey and me. Dr Starkey quoted him again, saying the Queen has developed a fourth right, which is to be silent. But silence is logically implicit in the correct exercise of the other three rights: the minute the Queen enters politics, as David Cameron stupidly had her do with his account of her alleged joy at the outcome of last year’s Scottish referendum, her stature is compromised.

Our system works perfectly. To have a Head of State with nearly 64 years’ experience is the greatest boon to the Kingdom. To have a Head of State not of the stamp of Barack Obama, or George W Bush, or François Hollande, or Nicolas Sarkozy is a prize worth protecting. But for the Queen we might be saddled with an absurdity such as “Chris” Patten or, worse, Neil Kinnock as the figurehead of our nation. Never mind her dignity and blamelessness: the lifelong disinterest in politics the Queen brings to her role is priceless; as is her understanding of the subject, and of its practitioners.

One thing that has changed since 1952 is the end of any vestige of deference towards our elected leaders: that is their achievement. Relative to them, the Queen is titanic in her moral standing: that is hers. That gives her massive authority, and should make wise politicians careful in case she threatens to exercise it. We are infinitely better governed because of her than we would otherwise be. Reflect, and rejoice: God save the Queen!

Queen Elizabeth II is set to become Britain's longest serving monarch | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
When she was just 21 the then Princess Elizabeth made the people of the Commonwealth of Nations a solemn promise.

'I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we belong.

None who heard her words could have known she would go on to become the longest-reigning monarch in British history.

Yet on September 9, 2015, that is her momentous achievement when she overtakes the record set by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria, having been on the throne for 63 years, seven months and two days.

Duty and patriotism have been been themes of her life and now and nearly 90, the Queen has a huge experience of world and foreign affairs.

Here extracts from a Mail on Sunday special magazine tell the story of some of her happiest and most glorious moments and sadness from both her family life and the life of the country she rules with a picture from each year of her reign.
There are many more nice pictures inside this article which I also like, but I've posted them here before.

Rev. Amos Cresswell

The above was born on the same day as H.M and sat next to her during a lunch at B.P to mark their and others eighteth birthday. He says that their conversation included a comment from H.M that they had been brought up to be ' committed ' but that younger generations appear to have lost this. Rev. Cresswell mused that this may be the secret of H.M's reign. He has just appeared on ITV news.

Brilliant casual photos of HM. She seems to have a rather warm and friendly personality. I particularly like this photo.

As the milestone is set just in a few days I little reflect the history of the British queens regnant. 2 British queens have "created" an era. I think of Queen Elizabeth I. and Queen Victoria. We have the Elizabethan era and the Victorian era.

IMO the actual british Queen has also created an era. How could this era be named? The "Second Elizabethan era"? What do you think?

Historic news stories about Queen Elizabeth II in the 1970s* | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The decade she became the People's Queen: Silver Jubilee celebrations as Charles looks for a wife, the historic news stories of our record-breaking monarch in the 1970s

1977: On her Silver Jubilee, Queen speaks for us all: Is everybody happy? I am!

After almost seven happy and glorious decades on the throne the Queen is set to become Britain's longest serving monarch. On September 9, she will overtake the record set by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria. Today, in the second of a series of features ahead of the historic occasion, we continue to look back at her reign in papers. This time the focus is on the 1970s - a decade when Her Majesty became the People's Queen.


This was the moment that captured the spirit of the Jubilee as the Queen walked among the people packed together outside St Paul’s Cathedral.

The happiness that until then had been kept in check bubbled from her. ‘Everybody quite happy?’ she asked one set of cheering spectators who had suffered the indifferent weather for hours.

Then, before they could answer, she replied for herself. And there was no doubting it: ‘I am.’ Then later: ‘What a lovely day, we are so lucky.’

I am reading this article and if I understand it correctly, the content is reprints of what was written in the 1970s, if so the stuff about Charles is fascinating and eerie. Some excerpts:

Quote:
1979: Which Charlie's Angel will be Queen? Our legendary diarist asks which of the Prince's many girls will end up a Princess
The Prince of Wales must marry — but who?

In recent years his string of liaisons has prompted even his own brother, Prince Andrew, to joke that he ‘tries to live up to Warren Beatty’s reputation’ — although it’s whispered Charles is no great lover and seems unhappy with his way of life.

No king in waiting has been prepared longer, more thoroughly or with quite so much torment as the Prince.
Quote:
SKI TRIP WITH A SPENCER

Lady Sarah Spencer, daughter of the Queen’s former equerry, Earl Spencer, has been at the centre of speculation about the Prince’s marriage plans.

On a 1978 ski trip with Charles in the Swiss resort of Klosters, however, she said it was a ‘marvellous holiday but there’s no question of an engagement’. She later elaborated: ‘I am not in love with him. And I would not marry anyone I didn’t love whether he were the dustman or the King of England.’

Lady Sarah has a 17-year-old sister tipped to be a heartbreaker. Her name is Diana.

Quote:
HIS WHIPLASH GIRL

Prince Charles’s most recent affair was with Anna Wallace, daughter of a Scottish laird, whose fearless horsemanship had gained her the amusing nickname ‘Whiplash’.

She was fun, intelligent, feisty and even more beautiful than Davina Sheffield. By the time the polo season began in the spring, she was firmly at his side.

According to some of Anna’s friends, Charles actually did propose to her. But finally she too had too much of a past — she was 25, there had been lovers.

Once it was revealed that there had been a couple of other men in her life (‘The Wallace Collection’, Princess Anne gleefully but unjustly dubbed them), it was all over for Anna.

The end came at a polo ball at Stowell Park, the Gloucester estate of Lord Vestey, where Charles danced almost the whole evening with one partner — Camilla Parker Bowles.

It was too much for Anna to bear.

She swept out of the party and out of his life.
Quote:
HOW CAMILLA DUMPED HIM

‘For the Prince, real life began with Camilla,’ remembered Argentine polo player Luis Basualdo. ‘He was just down from Cambridge and, if he wasn’t precisely a virgin, he was certainly wet behind the ears.’

Camilla was an eye-opener for Charles. ‘That was the time it first struck him that he could have virtually any young woman he desired,’ says Basualdo.

For the moment, he desired only Camilla. She smiled with her eyes as well as her mouth, was not a flirt and shared his love of The Goons radio comedy. She, however, had no wish to be Queen.

The end of the romance came suddenly and brutally. Charles was at sea on HMS Minerva when he received the news that Camilla was engaged to Cavalry officer Andrew Parker Bowles.

Uncle Dickie Mountbatten, however, breathed a sigh of relief, and urged Charles to become ‘a moving target’ where women were concerned. Advice which the Prince prepared to follow to the hilt.

David Cameron to lead hour-long tribute to the Queen as she claims record for longest reigning monarch - Telegraph
Quote:
David Cameron will lead an hour-long tribute to the Queen in Parliament on Wednesday as part of a worldwide wave of praise for her record-breaking reign.

The Prime Minister will be joined by the leaders of the other political parties in thanking Her Majesty for her 63 years of service on the day she overtakes Queen Victoria as our longest-reigning monarch.

National leaders from Commonwealth realms around the world are also expected to add their own words of thanks, on a day of celebration that will begin on the Pacific island of Tuvalu and end in Canada.

The Queen is herself expected to respond to some of the early statements if and when she makes a speech when she opens a new railway line in the Borders at lunchtime, but she will not by then have heard the tributes from the Commons, which will begin with a statement from the Speaker, John Bercow.
I hope he doesn't say anything stupid again. It will be interesting to hear from republican Harriet Harman, who I actually like.
