Quiz: British Royal Family

Updated on June 15, 2011

This is a right royal quiz

The British Monarchy is an ancient institution. Its history overlaps closely with that of England, Wales, Scotland, and other European countries. It is also interwoven with the history of the past and present countries of the British Commonwealth, as a relic of the former British Empire.

Queen Elizabeth is Head-of-State/Queen of 16 countries: Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.

Love them or hate them, the members of the Royal Family show all human qualities and emotions - they are, after all, human. The family has been involved in scandals, scrapes, joys and sadnesses, just as has every human family.

This quiz should help to introduce you to them, if you don't already know about them in any detail. Enjoy the history and the SquidPoints!

Our wishes to the Royal Couple - Royal Wedding 29th April 2011

The Royal Couple [http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/3230266/Prince-William-and-Kate-Middleton-to-be-married-next-year.html]
The Royal Couple [http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/3230266/Prince-William-and-Kate-Middleton-to-be-married-next-year.html]

As they embark on married life, we hope that they will find joy and strength in their relationship and that they can allow the 'limelight' to wash over them without intruding in their shared respect and love.

Breaking news just released today: they are officially to be known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. That's nice for me; I spent my six university years at Cambridge.

Well, it's happened and they are now man and wife! - We wish them all the very best in their marriage.
