Default United Kingdom

According to this article, Queen Elizabeth 2 (peace be upon her) is the ruler of the UK and Northern Ireland. Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't the UK comprise Great Britain and Northern Ireland, so haven't Gulf News slipped up?

funnily enough

"Scottish controversy"

"Though the situation was the same in every one of the Queen's realms beyond England (save, perhaps for Canada), only in Scotland did the title Elizabeth II cause controversy as there had never been an Elizabeth I in Scotland. In a rare act of sabotage, new Royal Mail post boxes in Scotland, bearing the cypher EIIR, were vandalised, after which, to avoid further problems, post boxes and Royal Mail vehicles in Scotland bore only the Crown of Scotland. A legal case, MacCormick v. Lord Advocate (1953 SC 396), was taken to contest the right of the Queen to title herself Elizabeth II within Scotland, arguing that to do so would be a breach of the Act of Union. The case, however, was lost on the grounds that the pursuers had not title to sue the Crown, and also that the numbering of monarchs was part of the Royal Prerogative, and thus not governed by the Act of Union. It was suggested by Winston Churchill that future British monarchs should be numbered according to either their English or Scottish predecessors, whichever number is higher;[10] equivalent rules have not, however, been applied in the other Commonwealth realms.

Less publicised controversies included the argument that the monarch was addressed as Your Grace in pre-union Scotland, and that the preferred title had been King/Queen of Scots rather than of Scotland. At the opening of the Scottish parliament in 1999, Presiding Officer David Steel referred to Elizabeth II as "not only the Queen of the United Kingdom but seated as you are among us in the historic and constitutionally correct manner as Queen of Scots."

Last I checked, a handful of counties on the north of Ireland are under the jurisdiction of the UK. So yes, she is Queen of a portion of Ireland.
