I also think it's extremely good of The Prince of Wales and Her Majesty to try to protect the rights of the workers. Maybe they will be able to do something and the factory will not be closed.

Well, it's probably safe to say that the Queen won't be wearing any Burberry coats sporting the proud label "Made in Taiwan."

Well would you? Kids in sweatshops can never do a decent collar.

Well done! We colonials also know a thing or two about coats, particularly those designed to be worn our magnificent Australian Stock Horses. Seriously though, well done ma'am. Good show.

British Horse Society by the way. Not British Home Stores.

Queen Elizabeth Reportedly Angers Cut Off Workers

At the London royal palace, what Queen Elizabeth says goes, but some people may not always agree with her.
It's been said that the monarch has angered her royal workers with sweeping job cuts.
Six of the seven full-time staff at St. George's Chapel, in the grounds of Windsor Castle, have been sacked, spurring outrage among chapel staff and the congregation.
A castle insider told Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "The mood at St. George's is bleak. The whole affair has been badly handled."

I love the 1954 Annigoni portrait of Her Majesty but the 69 one is a bit ropey. And the less said about Rolf's childlike daubing the better.

The 1954 portrait is breathtaking. It's one of my favorite pictures of the Queen. However the one in 1969 makes her look masculine, to me. I don't like it.

I agree. It is very manly whereas the 54 one presents a beautiful woman who just breathes British. It's always been a favourite of mine. Having seen the 69 one up close, I can say it really does give HM a manly look.

The French Prime Minister, Guy Mollet, wanted France to join the Commonwealth with Queen Elizabeth II as French Head of State.

United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and France - wow, it sounds good! I just wonder what would the Brits and French think if they one day woke up 'united'.

Queen Elizabeth was probably the closest Monarch to get the title of Queen of France after probably Kind Edward III, without even realising it (assuming she wasn't told of the plans).

It's all very odd I must say. Then again, it's quite natural in some ways. It's interesting to think what might have been!

Mary Stuart called herself at one time queen of France, Scotland and England and hoped her husband, the then king of France would help her throwing Elizabeth I. from her English throne but he died rather young and her mother-in-law was certainly not interested. Instead she tried to marry her younger son to Elizabeth...

Well spotted Jo!
However I meant actual Monarchs of England and Mary Stuart might have called herself Queen of England (and recognized as such by Rome) but she was not one.
And she was not Queen of France either, she was Queen Consort of France.

Now, if Mary did have a son in her marriage to François II, and he succeeded Queen Elizabeth like James did, then the crowns of England, Scotland and France may indeed be united.

I believe in this case Elizabeth would have married and tried to get her own son or daughter. How old was Elizabeth when James was born? I just checked, she was only 32 and still on the outlook for a husband (at leats she pretended she was).

But - if Elizabeth had married Francois d'Alencon, the youngest brother of Francois II. of France and born a son, this boy would have been king of England after Elizabeth and king of France after his father - instead of Henri of Navarra (Henri IV.) who only inherited the French crown because the Valois-brothers died childless.

Their style were "William and Mary, by the Grace of God, King and Queen of England, Scotland, France and Ireland, Defenders of the Faith, Etc."

The claim to France had been asserted by every English King since Edward III and is in fact just nominal.
