smiley - laugh thanks BBsmiley - ok

I was asked to explain our Queen's comment about Camilla and her status, it was just a seal of her approval really, as Camilla always was going to be Queen Consort (when the time comes).

One thing you might consider adding is a mention of a Queen Regent, someone ruling on behalf of another when the monarch is a child, absent (such as Richard the Lionheart going off crusading), physically or mentally incapacitated or otherwise unable to discharge the powers and duties of the monarchy themselves. These are usually Queen Consorts and/or Queen Dowagers but often have their own stories when it comes to wanting to wield power directly, such as Isabella the She-wolf of France who fought a civil war against her husband Edward II and is widely believed to have had him assassinated, then ruling as regent for 4 years.

There's loads of royal stories about queens that just aren't taught, alas. Like Isabella of Aquitaine who had 8 children with King Henry II, who imprisoned her for a decade and a half or so, and then when he died she promptly effectively but unofficially ruled England for about a decade while her son went off crusading, and then when he got himself captured she was instrumental in raising the ransom money. Yet ask people today who ruled England when Richard the Lionheart was away on the crusades and they'll say Prince John or, more likely, Robin Hood and think of a cartoon fox...

Just a small suggestion. I have followed this period for years and it might be worth a footnote to mention that Catherine of Aragon was the daughter of Fredrick and Isabella of Spain, who was born 2 years before they financed Columbus' first voyage. As someone who lives over the pond I found that this adds a bit to the historic content.

TC: Eleanor of Aquitaine, quite correct, and also with the Millionaire question, that answer won Judith Keppel a whopping million pounds! smiley - wowsmiley - offtopicI believe Judith is a relative of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

I have added a photo of our beautiful Queen, although it's 20 years out of date and I'll happily replace it with a more current one if available.
