The Queen is set to sign a new charter backing equal rights for women and gay people in her capacity as head of the Commonwealth, a Buckingham Palace spokesman has confirmed.
At a Commonwealth event on Monday, the Queen will sign a charter agreed upon by the 54 members of the Commonwealth.
The Queen, as in all matters, is apolitical but is signing the document in her capacity as head of the Commonwealth.
The Mail on Sunday quoted one Royal Household source as saying: "The Queen takes her Commonwealth role very seriously. She has discussed the charter in detail with her advisers and understands it in full."
