When did Gibraltar leave the British empire?
They never did. --- The British Empire does not exist. It collapsed in the 1930's and the members of the former British Empire were invited to join the British Commonwealth which exists to this day. Gibraltar has chosen to remain under British Sovereignty against the wishes of the Spanish who see this as belonging to Spain. In turn, Britain has promised to protect former colonies who wish to remain under British Rule such as the Falklands, Gibraltar and many other small nation states.

Asked in History of England
Was the British empire an empire to be proud of or ashamed of?
It was one to be very proud of. The British Empire was the largest empire to have ever existed on this planet. The British Empire spanned 12.82 million miles squared (33.2 million kilometres squared) with a total population of 458 million (out of a world population of 2.295 billion). The Roman Empire, one of the other greatest empires the world has seen, spanned just 2.51 million miles squared (6.8 million kilometres squared) with a total population of 70 million. The empire brought new technology and new medicine to areas of the world which lacked them, making lives easier and helping people survive longer. The British Empire brought water to dry regions, taught tribes how to farm instead of fight and ended decades of wars between rival nations or rival tribes, uniting everyone together. The British Empire also meant that scientists and explorers could safely travel the world, which in turn lead to a huge boom in scientific advancements, medical advancements and so on. The British Empire also defended their member nations against hostile attacks. The British Empire changed the majority of the world for the better.

Paul Revere made propaganda against the British after the Boston Massacre. He was a blacksmith and in his engraving, he made the British look like murderers that were shooting defenseless colonists. This made more colonists turn against the British. Paul Revere was also given the job to warn the colonies when the British were coming. He would ring the church bell twice if they were coming by water, and once if they were coming by land. He had to give this message to all of the colonies.

Is UK the same as British Empire?
No! Today the United Kingdom should be correctly referred to as 'The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland'. This incorporates England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Channel Islands can be also added along with The Orkneys and Isle of Man etc. At the turn of the 20th Century (1900), you would have referred to the British Empire and the UK as one. Now, the countries of the former British Empire collectively refer to themselves as 'The Commonwealth of Nations'. The British Monarch is no longer the ruler of the Commonwealth and is merely a token head of state with no real powers in the few remaining countries which are tokenly 'ruled 'by the Crown-ie. Australia which voted to retain the British Monarchy but the Queen as no real powers as such.
