The Queen is limited in her role as a constitutional monarch to advice from her sitting Prime Minister. Until the readings in the Commons are taken and a coalition government is formed, Gordon Brown has the right to remain Prime Minister until a vote of no-confidence is passed.

At that point, Brown would ask for an audience with The Queen and formally hand in his seal of office. The Private Secretaries would have already taken advice from the other party leaders to determine if they agree on a Prime Minister. At that point, The Queen would offer the office to the new candidate.

Hung parliaments don't usually last long in the UK and a new election may be called within a year if legislation cannot pass. At that point, the Prime Minister asks The Queen to dissolve Parliament and hold a new election.

Royal Private Passions the Horse

I thought id start this thread as the Horse is such a Big part of Royal Life in the Uk both in Offical Capacity and Private Passion. Im not sure if the Duchess of Cornwall Rides anymore maybe someone knows but Anne and The Queen do I believe.

Hi,

Good topic!!

I'd like to know what happened to The Queen Mother's horses?
I'm sure that The Queen inherited them; but what became of them? Did she keep them, sell them or put them out to pasture?
They are probably not still living now but what became of them after her death?

Larry

It's quite possible that they're still living. Horses can have lifespans of 20-30 years or more.

I was astonished to see the pic of HM on a horse. I just assumed she did not ride anymore.

I understand she rides at Windsor quite often. She is also rumoured to refuse to wear any protective headgear.

There are many books about royal horses on amazon.
The Queen still rides when she's at Windsor, with no headgear other than a scarf.

She still Rides when she is at Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral. Its wierd to think that one slip of the horse and we could have another monarch should the slip be fatal as im a rider ive seen it happen so often to my friends.

Hi,

Well, didn't William III and his horse stumble in a rabbit hole - - and voila! - Queen Anne.... It could happen...

I think that she lived for a short period of time at Badminton House in Gloucestershire and after the end of WWII she returned to Marlborough House.

What does Philip call the Queen?Lilibet or just Elizabeth?

I ask this because The queen and her mother share the same name.

Don't ask me where I heard it or read it but I think I've heard/read several time where he calls her "cabbage".

I think its kind of cute.

'Mon petit chou' (my little cabbage) is a famous French expression of love and affection. I guess Philip just shortened it to cabbage.

That makes sense to me. Thanks! I love it when couples have quite original pet names for each other.
