Scots teetles[eedit | eedit soorce]

The'r some controversy ower Elizabeths teetles an modes o address in Scotland:

  • Some argies that as Scotland ne'er haed a Queen Elizabeth I, she shuid be kent as Elizabeth I in Scotland; some fowk haudin this belief haes e'en defaced or malafoustert postboxes wi the ineetials "E.R.II". Houaniver, the nummerin o monarchs is a maiter o the ryal prerogative, an it haes been decree'd that aw monarchs wi the same name as aither a Scots or Inglis monarch sall tak the heichest nummer — in this case, Elizabeth II.
  • It wis tradeetional tae cry Scots monarchs Keeng or Queen o Scots, nae o Scotland.
  • It wis tradeetional forby tae address Scots monarchs as "Yer Grace" raither nor "Yer Maijesty" awtho it wis James VI o Scotland that brocht in "Yer Maijesty" tae the exclusion o aw ithers.
