Great Britain is one of the biggest empires in the world history. In 1914 it included a quarter of all world population. The United Kingdom was formed in 1801, according to the Parliament's certificate. The British empire included a lot of colonies all over the world, where the monarchy was spread too. The process of the decolonization began in 1947, when India, Pakistan and Ceylon became independent. The union between the former members of the British empire and Britain was made in 1949. And now it's called the Commonwealth. It includes such countries, as Ireland, Brim, Sudan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and others. The Queen is the Head of State.

She wanted to become a ballet - dancer. Besides she loved children very much and at the age of sixteen she worked at schools for very young children. Diana became the Princess, when the Prince Charles, the Queen’s son, asked her to be his wife and they got married. They had two sons; Harry and William. But Diana wasn't happy, because they did different things and Charles didn't understand her.
Why did she win the hearts of millions and millions of people in many countries? Why did so many people come to London to remember her, when she died? She was a kind woman. Hundreds of people talked about Diana's kindness. She liked ordinary people, though she was rich.
The Prince William is a very popular member of the family
The Prince William Arthur Philip Louis was twenty years old on the 21st of July, 2002. He is a very popular member of the royal family and a lot like his mother, the Princess Diana.

CHAPTER 2. RELATED BONDS WITH THE RUSSIAN ROYAL FAMILY
2.1. Related bonds with Russia
Related bonds between two countries began to develop more than 1 000 years ago, when in the 9lh century the great Prince of Novgorod Rurik became the founder of the Russian monarchy.
In the 19th century there were many marriages between Russian and British royal families. According to the mother's branch, the King George V was the cousin of the last Emperor Nicolai II and the Empress Alexandra, according to the father's branch. The external similarity between Nicolai II and George V was so strong that sometimes they were confused.
In 1994 the Prince Charles was the first member of the British royal family, visited Russia for the last 100 years. Again the heir of the throne, Prince Charles, was with a worker visit in St. Petersburg. The visit was devoted to setting up of diplomatic relations between the countries and celebrated not so long before St. Petersburg three - centenary. The Prince visited the chapel in Petropavlovskaya fortress, where the remains of Nicolai II and his family were kept. In the evening there was a traditional cultural program for honored guests. For the first time from Narishkin's bastion of Petropavlovskaya fortress the traditional cannon shot was made by the member of the British royal family but if the assistant jumped aside, Charles looked like a very assured artilleryman. The used case was packed into a special bag and taken away.
I'm deeply sure that we can't know a foreign language, if we don't know history, features of culture, everyday life and traditions of the nation, whose language we study. We can't learn to communicate on the English language and to understand English speech, if can't think, as Englishmen think. Because the ability to associating is the most amazing gift we have due to nature. And I think that the English are very interesting people, but they are so different from us. The object of my work was to search the condition and the functions of a monarch in Britain, to learn more about the royal family. Compiling this work I've understood, how it difficult to be a monarch serious and responsible work. I told about the most famous members of the family - Lady Diana, the Prince Charles, their sons, William and Harry, the Queen - Mother and, of course, about Elizabeth II and her husband, Philip.
As I think, my work will be very interesting and useful for people, studying English and will increase their knowledge about such a wonderful country, as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and the Northern Ireland.
