  • The Power behind the Throne (The position of power occupied by the Royal Family in today’s UK)

    Investigating into today’s power structure in the UK and the role played by the British monarchy, this eye-opening documentary reveals the grossly disproportionate and undemocratic wealth and power of Britain’s Royal Family. The programmer educates the viewers about the sheer wealth of Britain’s unelected monarchy and trails through the various assets and sources of income to which a random family, born into a historic mesh of multiracial kings and queens, unfairly believe they are entitled. The UK with its dark and scattered history of political struggles has become the playground of monarchic power and influence. The documentary exposes all the main instruments of wealth of the British monarchy and provides clear commentary as to why Britain may be the most contradictory democracy in...

Not all of them, though. Here are 10 strangely cool UK traditions practiced to this day. Number 10. Wearing wigs in court. The practice of judges and lawyers donning horsehair coifs dates back to the 17th century. Not all courts and cases require them, but there are those who choose to wear them anyway. Number 9. Permission to marry. This really only applies to those who are descendants of King George the Second. For those who are, it means that a representative of the ruling monarchy must be present at the wedding to extend written consent. Number 8. Custodian helmets.

    One of the last official acts of the reign of George I of Great Britain was to both naturalize George Frideric Handel as a British citizen and to commission Handel to write the coronation anthem for King George's son and successor, George II. As 1727 drew to a close, Britain had been enduring a generation's worth of political and religious turmoil. The union of Scotland and England was still tenuous at best, with many Scots and English Catholics (Jacobites by name) still supporting the line of the deposed King James II. When George I (of the House of Hanover) assumed the throne in 1714, he was hardly popular -- he spoke German and not English -- many Jacobites rose against him and joined James in rebellion. The rebellion was put down, but anti-Hanoverian sentiments still ran strong. ...

    Edward inherited the throne when he was only nine, his quest to change England was to tear apart his family and his country. Written and presented by Dr David Starkey, this is the compelling story of two of England's most striking monarchs: a brother and sister, tied by blood and affection, and torn apart by religion, power, and some of the bloodiest episodes in English history. Mary (who was to become England's first reigning Queen since Matilda but who is best known to generations of British schoolchildren as Bloody Mary) was the first born child of Henry VIII. For 20 years she was heir to her adored father. Then came the birth of her little half-brother Edward, and Mary found herself cast into the shadows, ignored by her father and declared illegitimate by Act of Parliament. Nonethele...

Here are 10 strangely cool UK traditions that are practiced to this day. In modern times many customs have been cast aside, existing only in stories about how things used to be. Not all of them, though. Here are 10 strangely cool UK traditions practiced to this day. Number 10. Wearing wigs in court. The practice of judges and lawyers donning horsehair coifs dates back to the 17th century. Not all courts and cases require them, but there are those who choose to wear them anyway. Number 9. Permission to marry. This really only applies to those who are descendants of King George the Second. For those who are, it means that a representative of the ruling monarchy must be present at the wedding to extend written consent. Number 8. Custodian helmets. As far as traditions go, this one almost didn’t make it. Even though they fell out of favor for regular use over 30 years ago, some police forces are putting them back into regular rotation. Number 7. The Guards at Buckingham Palace. Where else would you find soldiers wearing outfits as good as these? The infantry soldiers seen guarding the palace not only serve a ceremonial role, but are also elite soldiers. Number 6. Summer birthdays for the ruler. Royal celebrations often involve large parades. To boost the chances of sunny skies, birthday celebrations for the monarch are scheduled in the summer months, regardless of when they were born. Queen Elizabeth II is among those who have added an additional date. Number 5. Congratulatory messages from the monarch. Since 1917, England’s Sovereign has sent special cards and greetings to people celebrating milestones like significant birthdays and anniversaries. Number 4. The Queen of England doesn’t have a passport. As they’re all issued in her name, that she carry one is considered unnecessary. Number 3. The Duke of Wellington pays rent. Well, sort of. It’s part of a ceremony commemorating the title-holder of long ago returning victorious from Waterloo and taking up residence in a country-owned home. While the Duke hands a flag to the Queen as rent, there’s no money changing hands. Number 2. Pearly Kings and Queens. Although the charitable organization has changed names several times, they’ve been aiding the poor for around 1 thousand years. The group’s members wear black ensembles embellished with white buttons. Number 1. The State Opening. Each year when the Parliament begins its season the Queen give a government-written speech outlining the year’s agenda.

This is a video in the Parliament Revealed (www.parliamentrevealed.org) project. Parliament Revealed is a free resource designed for anyone interested in finding out more about how the UK parliament works. It opens up the processes and procedures of Westminster through video interviews with MPs, Peers and parliamentary staff. It covers: • The roles of parliamentary institutions - examining how the various institutions of government in the UK function and interact. • How laws are made and scrutinised -- examining the processes of law-making, the typical stages that a bill will pass through and the various forms of scrutiny that laws undergo before, during and after their passage through Parliament. • The role of representatives -- examining the work of Parliament, the different responsibilities and powers of MPs and Peers and the staff, resources and mechanisms available to support them. • How Parliament works day to day -- examining how business is conducted, how timetables are determined, the rules of debate, the function of specific instruments such as Early Day Motions and Adjournment Debates, and the roles of specific actors such as the Speaker and Clerks. Parliament Revealed is in the process of being translated into 20 languages. Copyright 2013 Lord Waverley and the Hansard Society.

One of the last official acts of the reign of George I of Great Britain was to both naturalize George Frideric Handel as a British citizen and to commission Handel to write the coronation anthem for King George's son and successor, George II. As 1727 drew to a close, Britain had been enduring a generation's worth of political and religious turmoil. The union of Scotland and England was still tenuous at best, with many Scots and English Catholics (Jacobites by name) still supporting the line of the deposed King James II. When George I (of the House of Hanover) assumed the throne in 1714, he was hardly popular -- he spoke German and not English -- many Jacobites rose against him and joined James in rebellion. The rebellion was put down, but anti-Hanoverian sentiments still ran strong. George I looked to the Old Testament for a parallel to his situation, and found one in 1 Kings. The Bible told how King David of Israel, while nearing death was facing his own succession crisis. After some deliberation, he chose his son Solomon as his heir, rather than Solomon's ambitious half-brother Adonijah. In a grand ceremony, David's most trusted advisors, Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet, annointed Solomon as king. George feared another Jacobite uprising (which nonetheless came in 1745), and wanted to use the spectacle of his son's coronation to establish George II as the legitimate ruler in the public's eye. Thus Handel was called upon to write an appropriately-grandiose set of anthems for the ceremony, and he didn't disappoint. Four anthems were sung that day: The King Shall Rejoice, Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened, My Heart Is Inditing and Zadok the Priest, but it is the last that has endured. Zadok the Priest was first sung during the annointing of George II during his coronation on 11 October 1727. It since has been sung at at every British coronation since 1727, the only anthem from Handel's four to endure the last three centuries. It is traditionally performed during the sovereign's anointing. The anthem is anything but subtle. Regal, yes. Ambitious, yes. But subtle? I'm afraid not. It is played in four-four time, and at a slow tempo (about 60 beats per minute), picking up to ~80 bpm at the first "God save the king". The anthem is written in seven-part SSAATBB harmony, sung in the key of D flat. The libretto was adapted from a Latin antiphon, "Unxerunt Salomonem Sadoc sacerdos". The running time of the piece can vary between 5:15 and 5:45, depending on the arrangement and conductor. The official website of The British Monarchy http://www.royal.gov.uk *Correction in the Timeline* Charles II's father King Charles I was executed at Whitehall on 30 January 1649, at the climax of the English Civil War. The English Parliament did not proclaim Charles II as king, and instead passed a statute that made any such proclamation unlawful. England entered the period known to history as the English Interregnum or the English Commonwealth and the country was a de facto republic, led by Oliver Cromwell. The Parliament of Scotland, however, proclaimed Charles II king on 5 February 1649 in Edinburgh. He was crowned King of Scotland at Scone on 1 January 1651. Following his defeat by Cromwell at the Battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651, Charles fled to mainland Europe and spent the next nine years in exile in France, the United Provinces and the Spanish Netherlands. A political crisis following the death of Cromwell in 1658 resulted in Charles being invited to return and assume the throne in what became known as the Restoration. Charles II arrived on English soil on 27 May 1660 and entered London on his 30th birthday, 29 May 1660. After 1660, all legal documents were dated as if Charles had succeeded his father in 1649. Charles was crowned King of England and Ireland at Westminster Abbey on 23 April 1661 and reigned until 1685.

Edward inherited the throne when he was only nine, his quest to change England was to tear apart his family and his country. Written and presented by Dr David Starkey, this is the compelling story of two of England's most striking monarchs: a brother and sister, tied by blood and affection, and torn apart by religion, power, and some of the bloodiest episodes in English history. Mary (who was to become England's first reigning Queen since Matilda but who is best known to generations of British schoolchildren as Bloody Mary) was the first born child of Henry VIII. For 20 years she was heir to her adored father. Then came the birth of her little half-brother Edward, and Mary found herself cast into the shadows, ignored by her father and declared illegitimate by Act of Parliament. Nonetheless she became very attached to the motherless boy, and he to her, declaring her his dearest sister. When Edward was just nine, their father died and the young boy became King, surrounded by advisors and further distanced from his beloved elder sister. But by now they were divided not just by power and status, but also by faith. Mary was a staunch Catholic, Edward a reforming Protestant: at this time such matters were not an issue of personal choice but matters of life or death, treason or heresy. Within a few years Mary was under virtual house arrest and banned from celebrating mass; within a few more years Edward was dead at the tragically early age of 16 and Mary became Queen. She set about making England a Catholic country once more and hundreds of Protestants, including Edward's most trusted advisors, were burnt at the stake because they refused to renounce their faith.

Tony Robinson unearths new evidence that strongly suggests that Richard's brother, King Edward IV was illegitimate. If that were the case, the entire royal bloodline that traces its lineage to Edward has no legal right to the throne. In fact, according to our own constitutional rules, Britain's real monarch today is not Elizabeth II, but King Michael, a resident of Jerilderie, Australia.
