ghana, gambia, cameroon, nigeria, jamaica, kenya, malawi, malaysia, uganda, tanzania, yemen, zambia, bahrain, qatar, belize, half the caribbean.... all were under british rule at the start of elizabeth’s reign. and that’s not even all.
not people saying that means she decolonized them...... you really think the british willingly gave up the empire? especially the countries that they were pillaging for $$$? oh baby...........
consider that at the start of elizabeth’s reign, the british helped overthrow iran’s democratically-elected leader mossadegh because he was nationalizing the oil industry and giving his people the profits the british were stealing. decolonization was not on elizabeth’s mind
