Queen makes plea for Britons to find ‘common ground’

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

Commentators say the remarks will be seen as referring to the Brexit debate, with MPs due to vote on the PM’s deal for leaving the EU again next week.

MPs rejected the deal last week but the UK will leave on 29 March with no deal unless they can agree on a way forward.

BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said there was little doubt the Queen was “sending a message”. (BBC)
