    Do you think she ever wishes she'd been able to do that for a living, instead of whatever it is she does?

    Apparently she considers the time she spent serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service and working as a military truck driver and mechanic was one of the most enjoyable periods of her life.

    Sometimes, fortune and future is not what we decided for ourselved, but where life takes us.

    I think we're lucky to have our Queen. She is surely one of the best monarchs the English have ever had - and I'm sure whatever job she'd done in life, she'd have done her best. Her attitudes are good. Imagine Mr Trump as King. hmmmmm

    I think we're lucky that at the age of 92, she is still able to do her job as well as she does. When I compare her performance with that of my residents of similar ages, I reckon they'd all like a pint of whatever she drinks.

    Yeah. What a steaming hypocrite. Gold plates piano in the background,,,strikingly out of touch with reality. Viva la republic. Disgraceful person. What a message to send to her so called subjects...

    Imagine a democratically elected head of state. What’s worse? Trump or the tories? Not much in it. Both evil.

    Electing someone as a figurative head of state would be a bit of a waste of time, like Steinmeier or Higgins .

    Imagine the idea of democracy being bad...waste of time?what an ignorant thing to say given the deaths of millions who have fought for it. Dove any reading about it? Welcome to a Sun reader to this forum.

    I think being Queen has too many perks to want to do anything else. After all, she doesn't even seem to want to retire, despite being 92.

    She's dined out on it ever since. "Oh the days when I got my hands dirty".

    It appears the Queen's Christmas message attracted the highest viewing numbers of any programme broadcast yesterday. It just goes to show what a poor Christmas TV schedule was laid on.

    Or that lots of people wanted to listen to her speech.

    I never suggested that democracy was bad or a waste of time. I only refrerred to electing a ceremonial head of state.
