I remembered it mostly from a bit of trivia I read, that Prince Charles had an official Papuan name that translated roughly to "Queen's #1 pickaninny".

Wracking my brain trying to come up with the last one alphabetically - what presumably-island nation was once part of the British empire and starts with U, V, W, X, Y, or Z? United what now?

This quiz should maybe more appropriately be called "Countries 'Reigned Over' by Queen Elizabeth II." The term "rule" would more appropriately be used for a monarch that wields real political power (ie King of Saudi Arabia, Sultan of Oman, or King of Swaziland). As a constitutional monarch with ceremonial power, it's more correct to say that Queen Elizabeth II "reigns" rather than "rules." Semantics aside, this is a great quiz!

Nope. In a constitutional monarchy, the Queen reigns, but does not rule. It is a well known phrase in the Commonwealth. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constitutional_monarchy

I agree, reign is better. But since he put "rule" in quotes it doesn't matter very much. Since the quotes indicates it is not really ruling anyway.

Nope. It is a republic, along with Guyana. Both Trinidad and Guyana have significant Indian populations, did that lead to republicanism? Note that India was the first republic within the Commonwealth. Pakistan was the second, I think.
