    The Queen did not approve of the legalisation of same-sex marriage, the Daily Mail can reveal today.

    Gay marriage is set to become law after clearing the House of Lords. The Queen is expected to be asked to give her approval to the Bill—one of the most radical pieces of social legislation of her reign—by the end of this week.It opens the way for the first legally-recognized same-sex weddings to take place in England and Wales by next summer and brings the centuries-old understanding of marriage as being solely between a man and a woman to an end. … Baroness Stowell, the Government spokesman who steered the bill through the Lords, told a chamber packed with peers...
