Queen Elizabeth set to sign an equal rights charter

| No Comments

Queen Elizabeth II is expected to sign a Commonwealth charter on Monday that shows support for gender equality and gay rights, according to news sources.

The charter will outline the values of the 54 member states, according to CTV News.

The charter states: "We are implacably opposed to all forms of discrimination, whether rooted in gender, race, color, creed, political belief or other grounds," the Washington Times reported.

Buckingham Palace is typically apolitical, said royal commentator Bonnie Brownlee, and the Queen is approaching the charter with a "diplomatic fashion," according to CTV News.
