The Monarchy of the United Kingdom (commonly referred to as the British monarchy) is the constitutional monarchy of the United Kingdom and its overseas territories.
The present monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, has reigned since 6 February 1952. She and her immediate family undertake various official, ceremonial and representational duties. As a constitutional monarch, the Queen is limited to non-partisan functions such as bestowing honours. Though the ultimate executive authority over the government of the United Kingdom is still by and through the monarch’s royal prerogative, in practice these powers are only used according to laws enacted in Parliament or within the constraints of convention and precedent.
A commercial from 1988 for Persil Washing Powder
Persil Power is a laundry detergent product developed and sold in the mid-1990s by Unilever.
In the early 1990s, Unilever’s Persil detergent had been falling behind its competitors in sales. As independent tests were showing the major brands to have relatively similar performance in removing stains, Unilever decided that they needed a product with an edge in stain removal. Persil’s main competitor, Ariel, had recently introduced Ariel Ultra, the first of the “Super Compacts” – washing powders equipped with chemical catalysts which (according to the advertising) cleaned better than ever, with less powder. With Ariel Ultra taking the detergent market by storm, and their own Persil Micro lagging far behind, Unilever needed but to surpass it with a new super-compact Persil line. Thus, Persil Power was conceived.
