Her Majesty put her name under legislation which allows same-sex couples to get married, but despite it she claims that deep inside her mind she is against gay marriages, because her Christian faith has very deep roots and religion denies homosexuality. Same-sex couples in England and Wales were allowed to marry to March 2014, with Scotland following on New Year’s Eve of the same year. Marriage equality is still not the law of the land in Northern Ireland. The Queen remained politically neutral. Queen Elizabeth never was against gay people. For example, in 2014, she broke her long silence on gay issues when she praised Switchboard – the LGBT+ helpline’s 40 year anniversary in 2014. Her progeny, like Prince Harry, have been far more vocal.Back in February of 2015, gay broadcaster Stephen Fry claimed she thinks it’s ‘absolutely wonderful’ that gay couples can get married. Buckingham Palace refuses to comment the Queen’s words, because they were said in a private conversation, not for public.
