A little more about the country …

England, Shakespeare’s birthplace and The Beatles, is a country in the British Isles bordering Scotland and Wales. The capital,London on the River Thames is home to Parliament, Big Ben and the Tower of London. It is also a multicultural and modern center for arts and business. Other major cities are Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Bristol and the university centers of Oxford and Cambridge.

London, the capital of England and the United Kingdom, is a super modern city with a history dating back to the time of the Roman Empire. At its center are the towering Houses of Parliament, the iconic Big Ben clock tower and Westminster Abbey – the site of the coronation of British monarchs.

The British monarchy traces its origins from the small kingdoms of medieval Scotland, England and Anglo-Saxon England, which were consolidated in the kingdoms of England and Scotland in the 10th century AD. In 1066, the last crowned Anglo-Saxon monarch, Harold Godwinson, was defeated and killed during the Norman conquest of England and the English monarchy passed to the victorious leader of the Normans, William the Conqueror and his descendants. From the decade of 1080, the lordships of the South Wales were occupied by a succession of Norman families between couples with old houses of Welsh loyal to the English throne, with many ladies also owned by the English king in its own right. The process was completed in the 13th century, when North Wales as principality became a client state of the English kingdom, while the Magna Carta began a process of reducing the political powers of the English monarch. From 1603, when the Scottish monarch James VI inherited the English throne as James I, both the English and Scottish kingdoms were ruled by a single sovereign. From 1649 to 1660, the tradition of the monarchy was broken by the Republican Commonwealth of England, which followed the Wars of the Three Kingdoms. The 1701 Settlement Act excluded Roman Catholics, or those who married Catholics, from succession to the English throne. In 1707 the kingdoms of England and Scotland were merged to create the Kingdom of Great Britain and in 1801 the Kingdom of Ireland united to create the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The British monarch became nomin2al head of the vast British Empire, which covered a large part of the world’s surface in 1921. In the early 1920s, Ireland’s five-sixths separated from the Union as a Free State of Ireland and the Balfour Declaration recognized the evolution of empire domains in independent and autonomous countries within a Commonwealth. After World War II, the vast majority of British colonies and territories became independent, effectively bringing the empire to an end. George VI and his successor, Elizabeth II, adopted the title of Commonwealth Head as a symbol of the free association of its independent member states. The UK and fifteen other Commonwealth monarchies who share the same person as their monarch are called Commonwealth realms. The terms British Monarchy and British Monarch are often still employed in reference to the individual and institution shared; however, each country is sovereign and independent of the others, and the monarch has a different national title and style, specific and official for each domain.
