What a queen!




I think this picture is just adorable - Michelle is so lovely, and Her Majesty reminds me of my grandmother, particularly since her favorite color was pink. All this folderol about them embracing for a moment is silly - Elizabeth is a charming woman who probably got a warm feeling from Michelle and so decided to give her a little squeeze, and Michelle reciprocated. I think it's delightful.

One question, though - why does Her Majesty always carry a purse? Seems like someone else would carry it for her (Philip, perhaps?). For all her royalty, she's still a kindly old lady who you just want to help across the street. :)

Ha! Like they'd actually tell you that the Queen carries a dime bag and a glassy in her purse.

I heard one UK reporter saying that her basement is filled with beautiful but useless gifts, but an iPod she'd actually use. Leave it to us 'merikans! :D

It's like a security blanket. She carries it all over the place, even when just moving around the palace - she even has hooks for it on all her desks. She can also use it to signal her attendants -- if she moves it from one arm to the other while conversing with someone, it means, "Get me out of this situation!"

Seriously, dude. Quincy is TOTALLY USELESS when it comes to that.

Well, honey, of *course* he is... he's a man after all. That's why you have fag hags - to know the subtle clues of "get me away from this crazy person!!!" and save you from the crazies.

I don't see why not. That sounds like a perfectly reasonable plan to me!

Honey, that's why you have fags! If you were trapped in a conversation, I'd rescue you *and* insult the guy without him ever knowing it. :)

Or more simply put: she knows how to accessorize.

Cruella is proud of QE2 and her fashion sense.

I heard that she and Michelle were talking about their heigh difference, and I'll bet you money that's what got Her Majesty to give her a squeeze.

Dammit, I need to just buy all the DVDs and memorize them. I've seen them all, but only once each. It's like Monty Python quotes all over again...

So the Queen and Princess Margaret are driving along in the Royal Bentley one day and a robber with a gun jumps out into the road, causing them to stop.

He says to the Queen, "Give me your crown!"

She says, "Oh, I seem to have left it back at the palace."

He says to Princess, "Alright then, give me your diamonds!"

She says, "Oh, I must have left them back at the palace."

"Fine," he says, "Then I'll take the car." He ushers them out and leaves them by the side of the road.

As they're walking back, the Queen says, "Margaret, I know you had your diamonds on when we left. Where did you hide them?"

The Princess blushes, points down between her legs, and says, "Down there. But I also know you had your crown on when we left. Where did you hide it?"

The Queen blushes, points down between her legs, and says, "Down there."

After a few moments the Queen remarks, "It's a shame Princess Anne didn't come with us. We could've saved the Bentley."

(Old joke, but still...)

Prince Philip is such a bigot - I wonder if there are any additions to his list of zingers.

why does Her Majesty always carry a purse?
why does Her Majesty always carry a purse? Bette Midler asked some time ago what does she carry in that dam purse. We know she doesn't need cab fair. And I think the other part was that she has an ID card saying that she is the Queen.. It was either in Divine Madness or the Bette Midler Show.

I always thought Prince Phillip was a tall man. The Obamas practically dwarf him!
