The Kingdom, whilst despising humanity for its warlike, greedy attitude to say nothing of its pollution of Earth, is more than happy to pinch what it considers to be good ideas. Fairy-vision is an example of this though the jury is still out as to whether bringing television to a magical world, any world come to that, is all it’s cracked out to be. Alcohol is the other big import and the Queen imbibes very happily, too much so at times as far as Eileen’s concerned. The Queen also loves Earth food and sees that as a harmless way of getting to know other cultures without actually having to deal with the people/beings themselves. Eileen despises that attitude for the snobbery that it is.
The Queen’s Council is loosely based on the style of government Elizabeth I would have had and the Fairy Queen is vaguely aware of the similarities though disapproves. She feels each world should have its own form of government but knows the Tudor Queen couldn’t possibly have copied her here or indeed at all! The idea then that humans sometimes come up with reasonable systems of their own does not go down that well with Roxannadrell. It’s much easier to despise humanity.
FNN would like to do a series of history programmes on the fairy royals but neither Eileen nor the Queen are keen and without their co-operation the programmes won’t be made. This is due to the fact FNN would need access to the royal files/Library and only these two can grant that. FNN know the Council are not very keen on them, they owe their existence to the fairy royals so won’t bite the hand that feeds them. FNN sometimes try to persuade the Queen to allow them access here, knowing it’s a waste of time trying to get Eileen to change her mind, but to date have failed. The Queen doesn’t trust them to stick to those royals with a reasonable record. She thinks they want to dig up all the gossip and scandal concerning Queen Gwendolyn, great-grandmother to Roxannadrell and Eileen. The one comfort the Queen has on all this is that it’s one of the few areas where she and Eileen are united.
