Dissolution of the Personal Union

Can the English and Scottish parliaments, at least in principle, establish different succession laws, thereby potentially dissolving the personal union, in the (admittedly improbable) event that the rules produced different individuals? Nik 09:10, 15 November 2005 (PST)

Presumably so. We know so little about Scottish law *there* that they might have different succession laws and we just don't know about it! Elemtilas 01:03, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Picture

Isn't that Princess Anne? Deiniol 18:18, 26 December 2005 (PST)

Yep. Zahir 18:50, 26 December 2005 (PST)
This has been nagging at me for a while. Is it unfair to point out that Queen Diana's only thirty, while that picture of Princess Anne is of a fifty-six year old woman? I know ruling and whatnot takes it out of you, but I doubt the poor lassie would look that done in after only nine years on the throne! Deiniol 20:16, 11 January 2006 (PST)
Yeah, I agree. Would it be possible to make her appear younger, or, alternately, to find an earlier picture of her? Nik 20:32, 11 January 2006 (PST)
Done! Zahir 20:36, 11 January 2006 (PST)

Biographical details

When was she born? How many children, if any, does she have? Who's the current Duke of Lancaster and Rothesay? Nik 21:34, 26 December 2005 (PST)

I rather doubt anyone would object if you made a proposal or two in that direction. <g> Zahir 21:40, 26 December 2005 (PST)

Royal Arms

arms of scotland?
I was thinking, that since England and Scotland are fundamentally not the UK, that there would in fact be two different coats of arms for the individual monarchs of those two realms (who just so happen to be the same person). So I've started to design some. Behold my proposed royal arms for the monarch of Scotland. Zahir 21:41, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Question -- why is that wee shield plastered on the middle lion's head? Isn't it the same tiger that you've got sitting way up top, the one with the crown? Elemtilas 02:03, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
The stylization is one in heraldry wherein one shield is placed above the other, representing a relationship. The exact meaning of the relationship varies quite a bit, depending upon period and nation and the viewpoint of the herald/arms-holder(s). My intention was to indicate that for these arms, Scotland is the senior partner, being the arms of Scotland. The crest is a lion, btw. Zahir 16:53, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Religious Affiliation

Given that England *there* is still largely Catholic (as I recall), I'd suggest that the monarch is Catholic. In the FK, the principle form of Catholicism is the British Rite, of which there are two traditional forms, the Kemrese and the English. By far, the Kemrese is the more common, the English form being found in southeastern England (the Midlands, Thames valley and down to the southern and eastern coasts. Northumbria etc are mostly Kemrese. The differences are slight, and exist solely in the form of the liturgy itself.

Unless there is a law to the contrary, I don't really think it matters which rite a monarch subscribes to. Presumably, there would still be matters of tradition, so I would vote for the Anglo-British rather than the Kemrese. Elemtilas 08:22, 25 July 2011 (PDT)
