• Is wearing a hat compulsory at an English wedding?

    Best answer: Nothing is compulsory.
    It all depends where the wedding is. If it's in a church then it's considered proper for a woman to cover her hair when in church, much like it is in Italy.

    Internet and phone will be on top (as will utility bills, council tax, TV license, contents insurance etc). Again, it depends - fibre broadband will cost more than a standard line, for example.

    Best answer: It's rather difficult to make a judgement based on an anecdotal example. It could be a number of different potential factors.
    It could be your British friend has more relevant experience. It could be Islamophobia, it could be sexism, it could be based on applying for jobs in over-contested and economically depressed areas, it could be your Pakistani friend has a personality like sandpaper - who knows.

    It's clearly a wider discriminatory problem: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/dec/06/louise-casey-discrimination-muslim-women-bradford but myself having never worked in the corporate world or move in any corporate circles I really don't know what the situation is like on the ground. Having grown up in West Yorkshire and having had many Muslim women as fellow pupils and colleagues over the years I have to say it is exceptionally rare I find one in a position of authority. They are perhaps, conspicuous by their absence.
    All I can add to counterbalance is that these days anyone in their 20s or 30s are struggling to find suitable jobs for which they are qualified thanks to the catastrophic state of the economy and the issue of baby boomers squatting in the workplace long past retirement age. Getting a decent job is hard for anyone. It may be that getting a job as a Muslim woman is doubly difficult. It's a shame and I wish it were not the case.

    Best answer: Yes, but only when the Queen is away for her regular summer holiday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. It's called the Summer Opening and in 2018, it's from 21 July until 30 September. So you need to be in London at the right time!

    You won't see all the palace, just the public state rooms at the back. The palace consists of 4 wings around a courtyard, and you'll only get into the lower floor of the back one that faces the garden. But that's all you'll want to see - the rest is offices, staff rooms, and the apartments in the north wing where the Queen lives.
