How has the Queen managed to never be involved in a scandal like those in which her children and grandchildren have been involved ?

Scandals like the tampon Camillagate scandal, having an affair with someone else’s spouse whilst married, being photographed at parties in a convicted paedophile’s home or whilst having ones toes sucked whilst topless, wearing a swastika on a Hilter Youth costume to a fancy dress party, being photographed nude at a Las Vegas party, having her undergarments exposed when wind blows up her skirt, being photographed sunbathing topless with her husband, having an affair with a palace equerry, appearing on a TV game show dressed in medieval costume, etc., etc.

Will the monarchy continue to be representative of decorum after this Queen’s reign?

  • The Queen has a policy of never complaining and never explaining. Plus, her constitutional position means that the press would face very severe consequences if they ever did expose her transgressions.

    Most of her reign has been during a time when all the technology required to capture this information didn't exist, and when it did nobody would publish it. There is pre-war film of her giving a Nazi salute which emerged decades after when the historical context had changed. One thing she has always avoided is to be interviewed which has seemed the wisest policy.

    Oh you can be certain the Queen is involved in each and every discretion those in her family might make but YOU will never be aware of this!   She, above anybody, knows how to BEHAVE.  I have no doubt she's very affected by all of this (bearing in mind what was said between Charles and Camilla was PRIVATE!) but she'll hardly go into public meltdown.   She knows how to maintain a dignified distance.

    The Queen was well-prepared for her role by her grandmother, Queen Mary, and her parents. She just knows pretty much what the better choices are.

    In spite of Charles' earlier marital problems with Diana, there is no evidence that he won't be a good king. Charles has been pretty careful since the debacle of his failed marriage... William is also being pretty careful as well, despite his dislike of the gossip media and paparazzi he publicizes his works, and allows limited coverage of his family life with pictures and snippets of information that are not too personal.

    Some people have some inner controls, better ethical thinking and some pride. She probably also has a nurse maid to keep her doing anything stupid.

    Well if there were such a scandal I doubt the media would report it. For example she was once on a state visit to Russia and President Boris Yeltzin touched her on a certain part of the body (you can imagine). No media outlets ever reported it.

    The Queen was involved in a huge scandal when Princess Diana died and Her Majesty didn't even give a damn! Everybody was calling for the abolition of the royal family and they wanted the queen to abdicate in favor of Prince William!

      .... on amongst the hysterical public.   Quite understandably and correctly too.  Oh she gave 'a damn' alright if only because of Diana's sons.  Diana was no longer a member of the Royal Family at that time so why would she go into meltdown!!  There was NO call for her to abdicate, for one moment.
