There is a decent Wikipedia article explaining the structure, including note on how it differs from the Eastern Catholic Churches in the Catholic Communion.

They are part of the Latin Church, and will have their own leadership and liturgical form, or "usage", which is viewed as a form of the Roman Rite rather than a new rite in and of itself.
I'm sure this will put the Queen of England in a bind. I really can't imagine her condoning same sex marriages, homosexuals as Anglican priests, and women as priests/bishops. I understand her grandson by Anne married a former Catholic who converted so he could maintain his place as the 11th heir to the throne. Recently, the Queen removed the rule that royals could not marry Catholics. I understand she is religious. I'm sure she's a very conservative Anglican.

Otherwise the vestments are either bright or dark.
While technically speaking only bright or dark are specified, traditions of some Particular Churches elaborate particularly in the case some of the Slavic churches. In the Ruthenian Church, for example, bright white is very much the norm for Pascha. Purple/Dark Violet are the norm for the Great Fast. Red on feasts of the Holy Cross and feasts of Martyrs. And as mentioned, green for Pentecost and light blue for feasts of the Theotokos.

The Church of England is unaffected by this, perhaps other than to have lost members to the Anglican Ordinariate. However, to the extent one views that the impetus to establish the Anglican Ordinariates as a means for Anglicans to reunite with the Catholic Church was reactionary to some or all of the issues you mentioned, I would agree - it could be viewed as troublesome.

Pope Benedict XVI did meet with the Archbishop of Canterbury before giving final approval for the Ordinarates, but some say the timing was ill planned (i.e. too late). In any event, this was not done without some due courtesy and prior consultation with the Church of England.

Got an article for that? The law was passed by Parliament originally.

On TV. Point is it is true since Parliament apparently has passed it.

[edited] For those of us who follow the liturgical life of the Church, liturgical colors are very important. They are highly prominent, visible symbols that the Church has devised over the centuries.
