Since I was a child I always admired, loved and even wanted to be the Queen of England. To me, her majesty is the epitome of womanhood. A mother, grandmother, great grandmother, mother in law, business women and just the lady of the realm, her realm and her family traces over one thousand years. Such a magnificent woman and always dutiful, holding the sacred oath of royalty. I hope the next generations understand, read their bible and know what royalty really is. I know, her job has not been easy but she has managed so very well. It is not an easy job being a monarch. In reality it was not meant to be easy. Long live the queen of England.

Henry Paul Dodi Fayeds driver crashed the car she was in after being three times over the legal French drink drive limit, that's what caused her death. No doubt the Queen Will be blamed as the one that poured the alcohol down his throat and then forced him to drive the car whilst being under the influence!
Lol charles and william and possibly george are the only other people im ever gonna see wearing those crowns. I love the last one though. im not a royalist myself but i love the windsors despite the fact they have billions of pounds but wont share it 🤑
This is a prime example of the bourgeoisie rubbing there wealth in the proletarian's face. We call ourselves a democracy but how can we have a single family to be able to recall parliament. And why should the royald take millions of the tax payers money.
The Sovereign Grant is paid annually by the treasury at a value indexed as a percentage of the Government's revenues from the Crown Estate. The Crown Estate comprises the properties turned over by the British Monarchy in 1760. That was the agreement made in exchange for payments. The Monarchy gets 15% of the profits (46 million pounds) and the treasury gets the rest.
goldenthroat86 This year a report showed the Sovereign Grant was £46 million.The Sovereign Grant is money that comes from the Treasury – taxpayers – and is given to the Queen for her and her family to carry out official duties.
The crown does not belong to the Queen personally. The Royal Family does not "take taxpayer's money". They made an arrangement in the 18th Century by which they turned over the vast majority of their properties in exchange for a payment from the government. The live off the profit made from these properties.
PC MASTER RACE !!!!!! AND PEASANTS!!!!! This comment catch phrase still flooding the internet 😂😂, I think people look to this crown 👑 and think they could buy unlimited Nvidia Titan V, Unlimited memory, processor and on......
This crown could be a grand provocation cause it's looking exactly like artificially made crowns for clowns those should be all the time near the Russian royalties. Some even consider them as these who could predict sometimes even the future. In the Russian Empire they were called shuty" and also yurodivye". I think english but actually dushnaktsutun armenian queen***** is one of them with all her family, cause yurodivye could have families according Russian State Protocol (Pridvornyj Ustav)..
+goldenthroat86 thats what you think in your bullshit history research dont think the people and countries will agree to your knowledge of history when they know it better and the queen will feed her people propaganda history by changing it but she cant change the history left in asian and africa. wtf nothing was a gift to her its all stolen you wasnt there and she left her footprints in asia and africa divided countrys stole there resources and left all the countrys in porverty and corrupted for them to fight.
@Naz: I have studied history. That's how I know The Queen has not "killed millions in Asia and Africa". She has also never "invaded countrys." It was under Elizabeth's reign that the Empire was broken up with her approval.
So innocent British citizens are going to jail for making pug Nazi jokes and the queen sits here talking about her crown? And you'll all OKAY with this? This is why you Brits will soon lose all your freedoms. At a time like this, the Queen should've stood up for her people and freedom of speech. For Gods sake, if you report on Tommy Robinson going to prison, the government has threatened to send you there as well! Yet the royal family has remained silent? I'm not British, but watching from afar, you really are giving this woman too much credit. A real patriot wouldn't do nothing while their citizens are suffering. Stop gushing over the royal family and start gushing over your English value of free speech or you'll lose it!
goldenthroat86 even if i agree that it's in some jewels house or shit. Still it's not gonna change the fact that Britishers have a lot of expensive stuff which does not belong to them. It's just they were good at humiliating and Robbing asian and african countries. Duh, it's like a thief Robbing and showcasing it with pride lol.
Please quote the part of the article that says the Kohinoor is in the Imperial State Crown.
Wikipedia: " It was transferred to the Crown of Queen Mary in 1911, and finally to the Crown of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother in 1937.Today, the diamond is on public display in the Jewel House at the Tower of London." It is NOT in the Imperial State Crown.
Incorrect. The large diamond in the Imperial State Crown is part of the Cullinan Diamond, which was given as a gift from the government of South Africa to King George in 1907. The rest of the gems in the crown are from pre-empire England.
