    Sainte-Mère-Église Things to Do

      For info, the correct title is 'Elizabeth ll, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith'. A commonly abbreviated form is 'HM Queen Elizabeth ll of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland'. England is but one of her realms and she is never referred to in the UK as 'Queen of England'. Hope this helps. :-)
