TRUE CANADIAN Laurel, Calm down, mellow, no reason for this. As the explanation stated American English or British English (which would be, as you stated, The Queen's English) is equally represented & acknowledged here. Yes, there are many places in the universe that English is spoken, however, the Q/A/E with this specifically singled out the two as American English & British English.

"Mistress" used to be a very honourable title, but now it has changed its meaning.

I don’t know where you got this phrase American English. We in Canada also speak English and we have called it the Queen’s English. As I have said, there are more countries in the world than the USA. We stand alone, we spell certain words differently and we pronounce certain words differently, so PLEASE don’t even say that the other English is American, it is an insult to us and many other countries who speak English.

Mrs derived from the contraction Mr's, i.e. belongs to Mr.
