The Queen has urged Brits to respect “different points of view” and find “common ground”.

Commentators argue the remarks refer to the Brexit debate, as MPs are due to vote on the PM’s deal for leaving the EU next week.

The Queen, as head of state, is supposed to stay neutral on political matters and does not usually express her views on contentious issues.

Some have found her comments interfering.

Speaking at an event to mark 100 years of the Sandringham Women’s Institute in Norfolk, the Queen said: “As we look for new answers in the modern age, I for one prefer the tried and tested recipes, like speaking well of each other and respecting different points of view; coming together to seek out the common ground; and never losing sight of the bigger picture.”

This is perhaps not the first time The Queen has made a comment on political issues. She made a rare intervention in 2014 ahead of the Scottish independence referendum hoping that “people will think very carefully about the future.”
