You wogs are sooo clueless.
The Queens is the CEREMONIAL head of state.
The actual head of state is the Governor General.
Australia does not have a SERAPATE bill of rights.
ALL rights not specifically given to the state are ours.
You are an Indian Humbert. A monkey.
You are a pathetic creep.

In a cell-phone and IT infested globalized world Queens and Kings and Maharajas and Maharanis are a decoration to divert the attention..
Frau Thatcher ( The duplicate replica of Queen) had the guns to crush the trade Union but have not a bit of guts like INdira Ghandhi who had wiped out Maharanis and Maharajas.

Are there any difference between some Mullas ruining their countries and some in the name of Alla wish to justify the injustice by violence and so many kings and queens doing the same job but diplomatically?
Where can I fin some modernity without out-moded civilization?

Kindly educate me about the vital important rolls played by the queens and kings in Europe..
Mysore Maharaja had some Elephants
Rajasthan king had some as well and I have a list of the past history of India.
To feed one single elephant will sap your money and to keep so many Elephant will drive you homeless.
This is the fact.
Now how many elephants are there that get day-to-day food from the EUROPEAN queens and Kings?
Be civil if you can

I beg your pardon .
In spite of my ignorant comments about the queens and kings I have high regards and great respects for the humans whether they are maharajas or the hopless and hapless homless

Our monarchy is an historical tradition that has kept our country together. It would be wrong for us to abandon it.
It's not for foreigners to decide about our institutions.
The majority of Brits are happy with the present situation; very few are in favour of a republic.

I will be the last idiots to educate others to see the normal life in London or any part of UK ..

I am not bitter about the better taste of British citizens.
Still I humbly beg you sir to give me the number of Elephants that your noble queen feed daily?
Not an insult but a sort of queen's English devoid of oxfordian sort.
Thanks in advance

In 60 years there were many POPEs
( as Regal and Royal and noble).
Within these 60 years there were many wars, violences, loots, rapes, and tortures with the help of British political support.
Why the hell the queen had never made a historic speech?
THE ECONOMIST which i read avidly had once wrote about the queen's histortic speech with some Latin words which means year of miserable or something of the sort

The monarch isn't supposed to speak for himself/herself, but on behalf of his/her government.

All speeches pronounced by a British monarch have first to be approved by the Prime Minister. The monarch has to stay impartial in his/her statements, so there will never be political connotation.

The Queen once mentioned her "anus horibili" to explain her bad year. Her family had suffered some ill-fortune during that time.
Just a thought
