    England is the most commonly known part of her realm.  It's a traditional reference.

    To me, that is total stupidity to have to pay taxes to those so-called royal members who do nothing for the country.

    "Queen of England" is only a small part of her title.  See list.

    Probably because she's not the Queen of Mexico.

    Among other realms, England is certainly one of her realms. Look up her titles and you will discover that "Queen of England" is one of them. There's a REASON for that.

    While not one of her official 'Queen of' titles, people outside of the Commonwealth use the territorial designation 'of England' for a number of reasons

    England is where the seat of national government of The Uk is located

    Most people know that England is in Great Britain 

    'England', Great Britain, The United Kingdom, and GB & (N)I {an abbreviation of the historical name of the kingdom) were all accepted as Informal and interchangeable versions of the monarchs title right up until the 1950's

    Not sure to be honest. Very surprised though that they made that

     mistake.

    "Queen of England" is the shorthand way of referring to the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, along with her other Commonwealth Realm titles, to many people, eventhough it isn't accurate.

    Journalistic standards have fallen, not as accurate, not as concerned with getting the information correctly in the race to be the first to introduce news items...

    That wouldn't surprise me. They used to have such high journalistic standards. All part of the dumbing down that has gone on with the Beeb. Lord Reith must be spinning like a top.
