To be honest I couldn't really think of much else than began with "Q", at least, not anything that wouldn't require a little preparation. Now I've written that of course, and made a start on this post, I am getting ideas. Isn't that always the way? No? I thought it was. I'm stalling here aren't I? Yes. Yes I am. I don't intend to stop any time soon either.
See, the queen of England, Her Royal Highness/Majesty Queen Elizabeth II recently had her diamond jubilee. As if you didn't know. This basically means she's sat on the throne for sixty years. Which is no mean feat. Aysh taught me that the last monarch to reach this feat was Queen Victoria herself. Though of course the royal family, and the way they work, and even society, has changed a lot. I don't think that there will be such a long gap between a diamond jubilee again. Well, it depends on when the person takes the throne I guess. I doubt Prince Charles will see his diamond jubilee, but sometimes I doubt he will see his coronation. I wouldn't be too surprised if by some cruel twist of fate, he dies the day before the Queen does. He's so mad (as in insane) if he does take the throne, he wants to change his name and become King George (I think) because in the past King Charles's have been of questionable sanity. So he's so insane he's going to change his name to prove he isn't. Way to go.
As I was saying about society and the royal family though; A few hundred years back we were in a war pretty much every week. When one ended we just buried our dead, healed our wounded, and then jumped right back up on those horses. Way, way, way, back, the royal family themselves would join in the fight. Several monarchs even died on the battlefield, such as King Harold who died in the battle of Hastings in 1066. I studied that thing twice, so if I have anything wrong there, it's the teachers fault.
Take that in to account, as well as not very good average ages and living conditions, and you can see why no one really rules for sixty years. Then again, no monarch really "rules" these days. Though it probably is within her power to dissolve parliament and take back power for herself. I don't think she's going to be the ruler who does that though. If Prince Harry got the throne, he might do it for a laugh. That fella seems alright.
Another interesting fact on the subject of queens before I leave you be. I don't think I've ever seen a queen in a Disney movie. At least, all the attention is on the princesses anyway. The only time I've seen something close to actual ruling royalty in a Disney movie is King Triton in The Little Mermaid.
EDIT: Okay I should have said that there is occasionally a queen in Disney, but they are almost always portrayed as old and evil.
