If you’re feeling a bit down it is understandable that Queen Elizabeth II would not be able to carry out DedSec’s missions and it would create unnecessary legal troubles for Ubisoft.
While you can roam around in Buckingham Palace and all other areas of London, no royals are available as a playable character or even as an NPC in Watch Dogs: Legion. While you cannot recruit the Queen you can customize your other characters especially the Granny and dress her up as the Queen if you want.
Apart from the Queen, you can basically recruit anyone to DedSec and play as them in the game. You can select characters from everyday life like a construction worker, police offer, or even a hacker in this hacking-based game.
The choices are limitless and you can bring all of their particular skills and abilities to help you clear out DedSec’s name and reclaim London to yourself. Watch Dogs: Legion shows a dark and bleak cyber future where everything is monitored.
It also means that the Queen’s authority would not be possible in that scenario and maybe that’s why the exclusion from the game. While you cannot play as a Royal character in Watch Dogs: Legion there are plenty of Royal buildings in the game.
Whether this signifies something, we’re not really sure about it but you can read between the lines and figure out yourself.
Watch Dogs: Legion even goes ahead to not mention any of the royals by their name for legal purposes, even the currency has been changed from British Pounds to ETOs.
