Queen Elizabeth is Likely Saddened by the Brexit Result

Queen Elizabeth II is believed to have been “mortified” by the British exit in the European Union. Nevertheless, the Queen is constitutionally barred from taking political stand and has to remain “strictly neutral with respect to political matters.”

However, with the Brexit polls over and now that Britain is definitely heading out from the Eurozone, the future of Her Majesty’s kingdom has gone bleak, foreseeing a recession just when the economy started picking up after the 2008 financial crisis.  

Ingrid Seward, the Queen’s biographer, hinted that the Queen was “privately” “saddened” by the turn of events.

"The whole situation will worry her,” Seward said. She said that at 90 years old and having survived the harrowing years of World War II, all the Queen wants is continuity and unit.

"She would think we partnered with Europe and we mustn’t let them down," Seward explained. "The whole point of a the EU was that we might be a united Europe and wars wouldn’t happen again."

The Queen has discreetly participated in the recent debates leading to the Brexit polls. Another royal biographer, Robert Lacey, revealed that the Queen invited guests to dinner dropping questions hinting her skepticism about the EU. She asked some of the guests to give "three good reasons why Britain should be a part of Europe."

A backlash soon followed suit following the Brexit vote: Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation. And now, the Queen will have to face the demands for a referendum over an independent Scotland and united Ireland.

Britain will also have to endure serious consequences economically. In an interview with Spiegel magazine, German finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble warned that the British withdrawal "would be a heavy loss for Europe."

European Council President Donald Tusk said that the British exit would plunge Britain into seven years of political and economic turmoil. It will also have a harder time in getting trade negotiations with European countries.
U.S. President Barack Obama also said that an independent Britain would be sent "back of the queue" since it will be more difficult for the country to establish trade relations with the U.S since the United States has "little interest in negotiating with one nation compared with striking agreements with a far larger bloc," Lord Brown explained.

In these times of trouble, thought, the British Royal Family shall be looked upon as the only beacon of stability.

"In these unchartered waters, they are the continuity and stability that the British people may be lacking," Ingrid Seward noted. “They may be needed more."

With the British economic to take a serious nosedive, the Royal Family's role as a top tourism draw will prove crucial in keeping foreign cash coming in.

"Tourism is a major industry and they help support that," says Seward.

The Truth about “Princess Qajar,” the Royal Lady with the Mustache

A Persian princess viral news websites baptized as Princess Qajar has lately become a stuff of legends. She was presented as a royal lady with a facial hair that made her so attracted that 13 men claimed their own lives because she couldn’t love them. The truth is, there was no “Princess Qajar,” only the Qajar dynasty  that ruled over Persia for more than a century.

The only fact about this historical meme is that at that time, it was fashionable for Persian women to wear mustache. “Many Persian-language sources, as well as photographs, from the nineteenth century confirm that Qajar women sported a thin mustache, or more accurately a soft down, as a sign of beauty,” explained Dr. Afsaneh Najmabadi.
The memes and fake stories circulating online refer not to a single princess, but actually to two female dynasts: Princess Fatemah Khanum"'Esmat al-Dowleh" and her half-sister, Princess Zahra Khanom Tadj es-Saltaneh. Their father, Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, ruled Persia from 1…

Why Prince Harry is a Commoner?

Prince Harry is a commoner according to common law, explains royal expert Marlene Eilers Koenig in her blog.
“In the United Kingdom, the law is based on English COMMON law -- from where we get the word Commoner,” she explained. That puts Prince Harry under the rule of the normal law.
Only the sovereign (e.g. The Queen) and the peers of the realm are not commoners, she explained. The peerage of the United Kingdom is composed of, in order of precedence, Dukes, Marquesses, Earls, Viscounts, and Barons.
“That leaves everyone else, including princes and princesses, who have not been created peers of the realm,” Eilers continued to explain. Thus, even if Harry is a Prince of the United Kingdom, he is, by law, a commoner. In precedence, as the queen’s grandson, he ranks higher than the Duke of Norfolk, who is the premier duke in the peerage of England, but according to the law, the Duke of Norfolk is not a commoner, while Harry is is.
However, once he gets married, Her Majesty is highly …

Queen Mary and the Delhi Durbar Tiara

In 1911, King George V and Queen Mary were to be proclaimed Emperor and Empress of India. That was the first and only time that a British sovereign attended the durbar, which was hailed as the largest gathering of princes, noblemen and landed gentry in India to pay homage to their sovereigns. The King and Queen should never be outdone by the petty rulers. They were sure these local princes would come garbed with all the gold and diamonds from their treasure chest. It was decided that they should showcase the crown jewels with them. But British law prohibits anyone from taking these treasures outside Great Britain. A new set of coronation regalia  had to be made! Thus, the India Office commissioned Garrard and Co. to make the Imperial Crown of India for King George V. It has eight arches, with 6170 exquisitely cut diamonds, and covered with sapphires, emeralds and rubies, with a velvet and miniver cap all weighing 34.05 ounces (965 g).

However, Queen Mary was without the empress' …
