Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It would seem that the interests of the royal family would be roughly in parallel with the long-term interests of the UK as a whole. A problem with that viewpoint is that it also can be used to justify the old-style House of Lords. But still, one might expect that she would not want to go down in history as the queen who, after several decades of reasonable stability, ultimately oversaw the breakup of the kingdom.

Also, she's got a lot of real estate in Scotland that will pose an interesting question when they break off from England in about a year.
