How to show the House of Windsor[edit]

Shall we show in the infobox, the House of Windsor as - 1) House of Windsor or 2) Windsor? GoodDay (talk) 18:43, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

  • Windsor. Infoboxes should be simple and concise. It is unnecessary to write "House: House of Windsor" when "House: Windsor" is sufficient and unambiguous. DrKay (talk) 20:04, 7 November 2015 (UTC)
I've gone through (I think) all the other related articles & made the change to Windsor. These types of changes (i.e - don't show House) should be made throughout all monarchial infobox, IMHO. GoodDay (talk) 20:06, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Link to the List of Longest Reigning Monarchs[edit]

How is there no link to the List of longest Reigning Monarchs ( anywhere? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:20, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

It's linked twice, once in the lead and once in the article body. DrKay (talk) 08:27, 21 November 2015 (UTC)

Image to use after her passing[edit]

Shall we agree to use the picture above of Her Majesty as the main image after her passing? It is her official coronation portrait which shows Elizabeth II as she will be remembered throughout history. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HalloweenNight (talkcontribs) 20:34, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

In the event of her passing, I'd recommend an image from the middle of her reign. Which (as of 2015), would be from 1983 or 1984. The coronation image, is acceptable though. GoodDay (talk) 20:38, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps we should burn that bridge when we come to it? If she's anything like her mum, she's got a few more good years left. --Pete (talk) 21:16, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
You beat me to my next question. I was going to ask "Is she ill?" GoodDay (talk) 21:22, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
Just as well. That photo won't be PD until 1 Jan 2046. William Avery (talk) 10:41, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
