Like? Well, who doesn't like old ladies with a birthday cake on their head? ;-)

Dida from Augsburg on July 25, 2011

Well, she seems not very amused about her "birthday cake" or on the information about the "Gingko"!! ;-D

Greetings, Dida

Hi Dida,

to tell you the truth I was every disappointed about the Queen's attitude. There were almost 100 people waiting for her and she didn't even give them a glimpse, let alone a wave or a smile.

I guess it's just the style of the British royal family... :-(

I'm far from a royalist but whenever I see the Belgian, the Dutch or even the Swedish royal family on television I think about this encounter and I feel somewhat shocked that the British Queen had so little sympathy/respect for the people that support her.

Greetings - Hans

zij staat bekend als een zuurstok

Hans Sterkendries on July 25, 2011

Haha! Ze heeft zelfs de juiste kleur aan om voor een zuurstok te kunnen doorgaan.

Haar man was iets vriendelijker maar die had dan weer een stevige snottebel hangen. ;-)

Groeten - Hans

Yes, a little smile for "her" people would be nice! I think she makes her "job" just too long! ;-D

Hahaha, that photo of Philip is good - at least you can see that he is also only a "normal human"! ;-D

Greetings, Dida
