Royal Family

Why did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit the royal family?

Prince Harry and Meghan quit their roles as senior royals primarily because they wanted to be financially independent and because of their frustration with their treatment in British tabloids. From Harry’s statements, it seems they were envisioning a rather loose arrangement in which their lives weren’t publicly funded, but they could still partake in charity activities as emissaries of the queen.

Instead, the break from Buckingham Palace seems to be a rather harsh one. Their exact roles and titles are still in flux, but what is for sure is that they’re no longer allowed to use the highly-exclusive “His Royal Highness” or “Her Royal Highness” titles, and Harry will also give up his military titles.

What would be the American equivalent of a 1.2 LTR car in England?

Using the conversion factor of 16.387cc=1CI, we come up with a displacement of 73.22 cubic inches.

Most American cars are quoted in liters these days (5.7 liter mustang) so a 1.2 liter would be a 1.2 liter. same amount of displacement.

I don't think any American car has an engine this small. Although there are European and Asian imports in that range.

Most big Japanese motorcycles top out at about 1.2 liters (1200cc), although 1300cc is not unheard of.

I think the smallest car you can get in America is the Smart Car, which has a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, but it's made by Daimler AG in Germany.

What towns in England end in chester or caster?

Manchester, Colchester, Dorchester, Chichester, Winchester, Portchester, Rochester, Worchester

There is also the City of Chester in the north west of England, Ilchester in Somerset and Silchester in Hampshire. The "chester" suffix derives from the Latin word castra, meaning a camp or settlement, so these towns had been settled by the Romans during the Roman occupation of Britain which lasted from about the year 40 AD until about 450 - 500 AD. "Worchester" does not exist but the town of Worcester has a similar derivation - the "-cester" part also comes from the Latin word castra. Others with slightly different forms of castra include Alcester, Lancaster, Cirencester, Gloucester (pronounced Gloster), Leicester (pronounced Lester) Tadcaster, Wroxeter and Towcester, (pronounced Toaster.)

Ancient History

Where is Stonehenge?

Stonehenge is in the county of Wiltshire on Salisbury Plain. It's just west of Amesbury in England and is visible from the A303 road. The nearest city is Salisbury a few miles to the south.

There are many Neolithic earthwork enclosures known as "henges" in Britain. Few have any stones set within them and "Stonehenge" is by far most elaborate and is the only structure known to have employed lintels.

Stone Henge is located in the continent of Europe and in the country of England.

History of England
Royal Family

Who was the first King or Queen of England?

The first king to rule all of England as king was Athelstan, grandson of Alfred the Great. His forebears were kings of Wessex, to which they attached Kent; it was Athelstan who united Mercia and Northumbria to Wessex to create the united English kingdom.

However, there are a few tricky points of terminology:

  • Athelstan's title was "king of the English", not "king of England". Same thing really, but the first to be king of the English land rather than of the English people was Henry II.
  • Before there was a single kingdom, several rulers had be accepted as overlord over all the English kings. Among those was Alfred the Great's grandfather Egbert, king of Wessex, and before him Offa, King of Mercia
