Frangland?

According to official documents recently discovered by BBC and surprising to a lot of historians, France and England discussed the possibility of merging both countries into one during the 50s after France lost the Suez Canal and at a time when algerians separatists were gaining momentum. If a direct union was immediatly rejected, an entry of France into the Commonwealth wasn't excluded. Would have french people accepted Queen Elisabeth II as a head of state. I don't think so after all these centuries of "Je t'aime. Moi non plus" (I love you. Neither do I). But that could make for an interesting movie in a "What if?" kind of way...
