a reply to: TerryMcGuire It's not up to the Queen. We've had a referendum and was promised it was a one time only vote and the government would honour the result.
The problem is that undemocratic remain mps who think they know better than the general public will not accept the result and have been hellbent in stopping Brexit by any means.
It's the usual case with the EU. Any country that votes against the EU is forced to vote again and again until the EU gets the result it wants. Just ask Denmark or the Irish, both made to vote again after voting against the EU, and both result overrtured in the EU's favour.

Im behind the curve on Brexit. How has the Family come down on this one, pro or con. Whichever ensures their continued status I would presume.
Royals must not make public statements about their political opinions.
That's because the Queen and her relatives aren't elected officials. "The Sovereign, who represents all of the people, must be non-political," royal expert Marlene Koenig tells BAZAAR.com. "It is the job of the elected officials to be political."
THE FAMILY CAN'T HAVE POLITICAL VIEWS.
The Royal Family isn't allowed to vote or speak publicly about politics.
