Does the queen choose the ministers who run the country and control the parliament?

The powers of the British monarch, currently Queen Elizabeth II, are extremely interesting. To look at how she 'contols' parliament, you must consider what control actually is - if control is her ability to dissolve and call parliament, and appoint a Prime Minister, then yes, she does control parliament. However the Queen's power does not extend to the business of parliament; the executive (the majority party [or parties in a coalition government]) controls the agenda of parliament in accordance with the Speaker of the House of Commons. The Queen's ability to control parliament, therefore, is extremely limited.
