IF THE SUN WAS SO WRONG THEN WHY HAS THE QUEEN NOT TAKEN THE SUN TO COURT?

The day before the EU referendum last week, The Sun once again repeated its claim that Queen Elizabeth II supports Brexit.

She is supposed to be above politics, be neutral and not use her power to influence public opinion.

The Sun's claim stems from its initial claim from March.

So twice The Sun claimed that The Queen wanted Brexit. The Daily Telegraph also reported on a story which implied The Queen supported Brexit.

The Guardian was a bit pissed off about this:
The Sun was rapped over the knuckles for its “Queen backs Brexit” headline. Now, on the eve of the EU referendum, it has dared to feature the monarch on its front page again as part of its support for the leave campaign.

Its headline, “What the Queen asked dinner guests: Give me three good reasons to stay in Europe”, is based a revelation by royal biographer Robert Lacey.

But if The Sun is so wrong then why has she not taken The Sun to court?
