Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her ninetieth birthday a few days ago...
She is the longest reigning British monarch, and indeed there are plenty of unusual privileges, which no one else in the whole world has. This time, we present you the nine things about the Queen which you certainly did not know about.
9. She can drive a car without a license!
Well, that's a really good advantage. She is the only person in the entire United Kingdom that can drive a car without license plates and driver's license. The Queen has learned to drive during the Second World War, and then managed the first aid truck. Also, she knows how to replace a tire or sparks plug on the car, and we can bet you good money that Prince William does not know how to!
8. She can travel wherever she wants without passports
All other members of the royal family must have passports, but she does not have to, because everyone else’s passports in the United Kingdom are issued in her name.
7. She celebrates two birthdays
Her real birthday is in April, but officially, she celebrates her birthday in June, due to the parade, which is organized in her honor, for favorable weather conditions.
6. She has her personal ATM
Coutts private bank has set a cash machine in the basement of Buckingham Palace for the Queen only.
5. She has more animals than you can imagine
In addition to its two corgis i 'dorgis' she legally owns all the swans in unmarked open waters, as well as whales, dolphins and sturgeon within a radius of 5 kilometers from the coast of the United Kingdom.
4. Technically, she does not have to pay taxes
But the people like her, because she willingly pays her taxes since 1992.
3. She is immune to legal prosecution
Fortunately, she pays her taxes even if not required. And even if she didn’t, she could not be legally prosecuted if she ever missed a payment. Also, she and her family are not affected by requires of free information.
2. She has her own personal poet
This honorary position is given to a poet whose work is believed to have a national importance. Currently, Carol Ann Duffy occupies that position.
1. She is the leader of religion
Royal title goes hand in hand with the leadership of the Church of England. If she decided to convert to another faith, they could take away the title. Though we are sure that fashions like Scientology do not attract much attention from the Queen.
