The Queen Scotland Alex Salmond Resigns

The Queen is said to look forward to her annual retreat to Balmoral and was concerned over independence

We live in a time when people must learn to respect differences of opinion and accept that everyone else has a right to their view - right or wrong. There is a difference between opinion and fact. In the decision for the voting of independence of Scotland - how many people really knew what they were voting for and what this consequence would entail? Not everyone did. 

When the first demonstrators arrived after lunchtime, the atmosphere was quite jovial with none of the later air of menace which developed 

'A result that all of us throughout the United Kingdom will respect': The Queen responds to Scottish referendum decision

On Sunday, Buckingham Palace denied that the Queen had taken an official stance on the Scottish referendum. 
After a church service in Balmoral, Her Majesty told a well-wisher: ‘I hope everybody thinks very carefully about the referendum this week.’  

Buckingham Palace has repeatedly insisted the Queen is above politics. But royal observers said it was highly significant that she had apparently gone out of her way to address the issue as she walked across to a crowd gathered to see the Royal Family worship at Crathie Kirk.

They pointed out that her appearance – accompanied by her two most senior heirs, Charles and William – seemed to be a carefully choreographed show of unity in Scotland ahead of the referendum.

Signed simply Elizabeth R her message reads:

After many months of discussion, debate, and careful thought, we now know the outcome of the Referendum, and it is a result that all of us throughout the United Kingdom will respect.
For many in Scotland and elsewhere today, there will be strong feelings and contrasting emotions – among family, friends and neighbours. 
That, of course, is the nature of the robust democratic tradition we enjoy in this country. But I have no doubt that these emotions will be tempered by an understanding of the feelings of others.
Now, as we move forward, we should remember that despite the range of views that have been expressed, we have in common an enduring love of Scotland, which is one of the things that helps to unite us all. 
Knowing the people of Scotland as I do, I have no doubt that Scots, like others throughout the United Kingdom, are able to express strongly-held opinions before coming together again in a spirit of mutual respect and support, to work constructively for the future of Scotland and indeed all parts of this country.
My family and I will do all we can to help and support you in this important task.
ELIZABETH R.

Groups of Union flag waving demonstrators sang 'Rule Britannia' and 'God Save the Queen' as they congregated in George Square in Glasgow earlier this evening

With a new 2014  silver and gold coins, Britannia and the Queen feature with a new design perhaps this is the perfect time to share this.


It would make sense if Britannia is related to Scotia!

Peace be with you.Pauline Maria
