Fact of the Day: Royal Advice

Despite not having any real power as monarch, Queen Elizabeth II (and eventually her successor) meets with the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (usually) every week. While Elizabeth II remains politically neutral she does use these talks to express her opinions to the nation's leader.

I really do admire the way she's kept her head tall despite all she's had to deal with in her long years.

Agreed. Despite of having no real powers ...still the queen and monarch in UK or else where in the world (countries who still having monarchy) have a charm of its own.

The Queen was highly thought of in Canada when I was growing up. Just about everyone's home had a photo of her on display ~ often in the parlor. I will always have a special place in my heart for this woman who had dedicated her life to the service of her people. Thanks for sharing her!, Adam

I thought she was just a symbol like the king in Spain. Very interesting. Kisses, Adam:)
