Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “German media publishes attack on the Queen for not stopping BREXIT”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

German media has published an attack on the Queen on the day of her funeral when both Britain is experiencing profound loss and the royal family are losing their most cherished loved one. 

A journalist at Der Spiegel has written an opinion piece claiming that Her Majesty - who did not express her opinions on whether the UK should leave the European Union or on any other political matter - could have stopped Brexit. 

Nikolaus Blome, who admits he is not 'familiar' with the Royal Family, is not a  monarchist and is 'puzzled' why people saw her role as 'apolitical', said: 'I bet she could have secured a majority for "remain." 

'In perhaps the most important moment of her tenure, she could have made the difference. But she didn't want to. She did not reach for the cloak of history, but remained petrified in silence.' 

The piece was published, at 12.11pm today, German time, when her funeral in Westminster Abbey was being attended by 2,000 royals, heads of state and 200 members of the public.
