    The Queen’s most senior courtier was forced out in a power struggle between Buckingham Palace and Prince Charles. Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, left his post in July after complaints by the Prince of Wales and his brother, the Duke of York, sources have revealed now. The unprecedented ousting — the first time the Queen has got rid of her private secretary — was the climax of increasing tensions between the two royal households. It came amid differences over how to manage the transition of power between the Queen, who is 91, and her eldest son. Royal sources...

    Queen Elizabeth II, 91, is the longest reigning monarch and allegedly held a meeting as recently as two weeks ago to begin the process. Her Majesty is said to have decided that if she is still on the throne at the age of 95 then she will request the Regency Act to come into force. The Regency Act would make Charles a Prince Regent and a King in all but name. Under the Act, the Queen would remain head of state but would have reduced duties without abdicating the throne. [snip]

    She is the £3billion behemoth charged with leading the Royal Navy into the future - and she dwarfs all those who have done the job before her. Much is expected of the 65,000 tonne, 920ft-long HMS Queen Elizabeth when she eventually enters service as Britain's flagship aircraft carrier in 2020. And she arrived at her new home of Portsmouth today to much fanfare as thousands came out to give her a proper British welcome. Known as 'Big Lizzie', she is the biggest and most powerful ship ever built by Britain and is far superior to previous leading naval vessels. The...

    The Queen of England is planning to invite the Trump Family to London for an official state visit. Via Conservative Treehouse: According to The Sunday Times Queen Elizabeth is planning to invite President Donald Trump for an official state visit during the summer of 2017. Great Britain has long been the strongest ally to the U.S. provoking causing consternation from the left-wing elements amid both nations. President Obama strained the relationship by criticizing the United Kingdom’s colonial heritage, removing a Winston Churchill bust from the oval office, and giving the Queen the gift of an iPod containing all of his own...

    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II thinks European courts that protect Islamist hate preachers “denigrate” Britain and has demanded her dinner guests “Give me THREE good reasons” to remain inside the European Union (EU). The loaded challenge has been widely interpreted as an expression of Euroscepticism since the Royal biographer Robert Lacey made the revelation in a blog post in the Daily Beast. The EU and the European Court of Human Rights are known for their history of protecting the “rights” of extremists and blocking deportations. Last night Breitbart London revealed that Islamist hate preacher, terrorist apologist and Caliphate agitator Anjem...

    A Chinese ‘spy’ tried to get into the Queen’s carriage with her during last year’s state visit. Lucy D’Orsi, who was in charge of security for President Xi Jinping’s visit in October, was filmed by the Monarch’s official cameraman saying: ‘Well they also wanted to come in your carriage with the interpreter…’ The Queen appeared to be well-briefed about the incident as she nodded and replied with a firm ‘yes’.

    WINDSOR, United Kingdom - The Queen banned Obama from landing a dozen helicopters at Windsor Castle because last time he visited six of them ruined the lawn. The 90-year-old monarch is said to have told aides the helicopters were 'over the top' and they would be limited to three. US Secret Service claimed it needed all twelve so agents could be in close proximity to the President when he came to the castle on Friday. The service also demanded to post guards inside the private dinner with the Queen and Obama, presumably to prevent the pensioner attacking the President. Commenting...

    On my twenty-first birthday I welcome the opportunity to speak to all the peoples of the British Commonwealth and Empire, wherever they live, whatever race they come from, and whatever language they speak. Let me begin by saying ‘thank you’ to all the thousands of kind people who have sent me messages of good will. This is a happy day for me; but it is also one that brings serious thoughts, thoughts of life looming ahead with all its challenges and with all its opportunity. At such a time it is a great help to know that there are multitudes...

    Michelle Obama has given the Queen an early birthday surprise by announcing she will accompany the US President when he has lunch with Her Majesty later this week.Mrs Obama has struck up a firm friendship with the Queen during her previous visits to the UK, and famously ignored royal protocol to put her arm around the monarch's shoulders in 2009. Until now, the US Embassy had indicated that President Barack Obama would be on his own for a private lunch with the Queen at Windsor Castle on April 22, the day after she turns 90.But Buckingham Palace has confirmed that...

    The Queen did not approve of the legalisation of same-sex marriage, the Daily Mail can reveal today. While in favour of civil partnerships, as a woman of deep Christian faith she took a different view on the legislation allowing same-sex couples to ‘marry’. She expressed her frustration to a friend at the height of the controversy, but admitted she was powerless to intervene, saying: ‘I can only advise and warn.’ The friend said: ‘It was the “marriage” thing that she thought was wrong, because marriage ought to be sacrosanct between a man and a woman.’

    Britain's Queen Elizabeth II reflects on Jesus' central role in her life in a new book ahead of her 90th birthday, calling Christ "the King she serves" in the title. "I have been -- and remain -- very grateful to you for your prayers and to God for his steadfast love," the British monarch writes in the foreword to The Servant Queen and the King She Serves, which is to be released in April. "I have indeed seen His faithfulness," she adds. Thousands of churches will reportedly be giving away copies of the book, which is being published by HOPE,...

    Some time in the early evening of Wednesday, London time, Queen Elizabeth II broke a record: she became the longest-serving monarch in British history, beating her great-great-grandmother Victoria's reign of 63 years and 216 days. She is also, at 89, by a solid stretch the longest-lived British monarch. And still busy at work, with hundreds of public appearances every year and reading official papers every day in red boxes and meeting with the prime minister every week. The sovereign, as Walter Bagehot wrote in "The English Constitution" some 150 years ago, has "the right to be consulted, the right to...

    BRITISH forces launched a drone strike in Syria to kill three Islamic State terrorists who had plotted to kill the Queen and other members of the royal family by detonating a huge bomb at the country’s VJ Day celebration, Prime Minister David Cameron has revealed. “There was a terrorist directing murder on our streets and no other means to stop them,” Mr Cameron said about the lethal Aug. 21 drone attack — the first UK military action in the Syrian civil war. Two of the cutthroats were Britons, he said, who had helped hatch the twisted scheme to assassinate Queen...

    LONDON, United Kingdom – Today HM The Queen attended a memorial service in central London to mark the 70th anniversary of victory over Japan in World War II. She was guest of honor despite the media having uncovered a plot to blow up the event and kill her. Her attendance at St Martin-In-The-Field church was in sharp contrast to President Barack Obama who did not appear to be commemorating American efforts to defeat the Japanese. Instead he chose to release a list of his favorite songs on the music website Spotify. A move that is likely be seen as disrespectful...

    They say some people are born great, whilst others have greatness thrust upon them. Perhaps one of the least likely 20th century heroes is HM The Queen, a woman whose father was forced to become King because of his brother's dereliction of duty. Had her uncle not wanted to marry Wallis Simpson our Queen would not be the woman who symbolizes Britain, but instead would have lived life as a minor Royal attracting little interest from the public. The abdication of King Edward VIII gave Princess Elizabeth's immediate family the most poisonous of all poisoned chalices. Her father had a...

    Demanding to know how the private images got out of the collection in Windsor Castle, the Queen said she felt “betrayed” by “deliberate mischief making”. The nation rallied behind the Queen as she was rocked by cruel Nazi smears. The 89-year-old was said to be “livid” when courtiers told her footage showing her and the Queen Mother giving mock Nazi salutes in 1933 was released to a newspaper by someone with access to the highly restricted Royal Archive.

    'The bones of Elizabeth I, Good Queen Bess, lie mingled with those of her sister, Bloody Mary, in a single tomb at Westminster Abbey. But are they really royal remains — or evidence of the greatest conspiracy in English history?. If that is not the skeleton of Elizabeth Tudor, the past four centuries of British history have been founded on a lie.'
