Queen Elizabeth II is the queen of 15 independent countries besides the UK. There's no reason why she couldn't be queen of Scotland if it were ever to become an independent nation.

Alex Salmond, your beloved leader and instigator of the push for Independance, has already stated that Scotland would keep the Queen as 'Head of State' and continue to use the 'British Armed Forces'.

I can understand keeping the Queen, as plenty of countries have, but, if you want Independance, then you should at least have your own 'Armed Forces'. Or has your beloved leader realised you can't afford it all on your own.......

She would be Elizabeth I here (our post boxes already reflect that fact by not having II on them and have done since she was crowned, an interesting trivia to look out for if you ever visit Scotland).

the Queen would stay the Head of State but become Queen Elizabeth the First of Scotland.

with some of the comments on this thread it would make me push for independence.

when I was younger I wanted independence but not now. I am happy that we have our own Parliament and make a lot of our own decisions on how Scotland is run, unlike England.

The United Kingdom became an entity when the King of Scotland became the King of England. If Scotland wants to leave the union, they'll have to throw England out. They keep their monarch. They keep the debts run up by an Edinburgh born PM and his Scots successor - especially the cost of bailing out a Scottish bank. The Unionist population of Northern Ireland have more affinity with Scotland than with an independent England, so that's Scotland's problem - as are the Falklands. In fact it's all such a good idea, why are we waiting for a Scottish referendum? Let England secede now!

there are far to many scare stories but my question why are the english politicians so keen to keep us? Scotland is the great in britain without us it will just be britain, with our oil wealth we will be a far better country look at Norway, they have never looked back.
roll on next year

Do we keep The Queen? Do we keep the army? Do we keep the UK pound? Do we keep our EU membership? Do we send the UK nuclear submarines south?
Too many unanswered questions and I find it all a bit scary. I voted against the Scottish parliament in the referendum in the 90' as we didn't need any more government. We already have a British government in Westminster. So now in Scotland we have MP's and MSP's. And the outrageous cost of the building. I only hope that independence is voted down and puts an end to all this nonsense. However, if Scotland does achieve independence can I come and stay with some of you nice English people?
