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".

The ordering makes sense for this quiz, but as someone who puts books in alphabetical order for a living I could not help but notice!

As St is the shortened form of Saint it really makes it confusing on an alphabetical quiz. It the main reason I didn't think to guess those.

QM, I'm having to disagree with you. Saint should go before Solomon, whether it's abbreviated or not

Guys, the real issue is that the United Kingdom is not before Solomon Islands

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!

Reign is a synonym of rule. He put it in quotes

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

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.
