Nothing reflects well on the T-words.

E2 was never actually Queen, imo, but I think she's in charge until she abdicates or goes to the big handbag in the sky. She's apparently been giving more duties to Charles, but my guess is she won't abdicate.
I had to look up the whole "queen mother" thing. It's not really an official title in Britain, but comes with certain rules and regs--if I'm reading it right, you have to have been the queen consort (and have a child that somewhat resembles the king) to be a queen mother. If you're just the mum of the monarch, but somehow didn't blackmail the king into making you the consort, then you're just a mum who should have had a pre-nup that said you got the orb thingie and the scepter or no go.
