It’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee & here’s a few facts, Akh style, to help you celebrate;
In 1917, in the midst of the First World War, The House of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha decided to rebrand and became known as the House of Windsor. It’s leader and King of England, George V didn’t want the English public knowing of his Germanic roots, it wouldn’t go down too well knowing the English King was actually a German.
While we’re on the subject of the First World War, any idea how many millions died all over a Royal family feud? England’s King George V – Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm II – Russia’s Czar Nicholas II were all cousins, all Grandsons of Queen Victoria.
Millions died because of an internecine family feud between the Kings of Europe.
So hang the bunting, bake a cake, throw a street party.
The Queen is German & Prince Phillip is Greek.
How’s that for multiculturalism England?
Bet you won’t be hearing that on the Daily Mail.
