The Highest Level of the British Beehive

The Royal Family

At the very apex of the British Beehive is the Royal Family by lineal descent supported by the British Constitution one level down. It is interesting that the Constitution, in Britain mainly a body of unwritten customs, is shown as ranking below the Queen and her family, whose right to stand above everyone else is gained by genetics rather than merit or any work.

At the center of the beehive, a caption describes the House of Lords and the House of Commons as the pillars of the State.
