"The first hour should be more than enough to convince even the most besotted royal watcher that nothing has changed since the days of war chiefs clubbing each other and stealing their stuff."
I don't really care about this woman, but it is "they" who have been stealing from her. Period.
This is no different than my brother in law and his wife having to fire the maid because she was swigging the wine.edit on 12-12-2013 by yamammasamonkey because: (no reason given)edit on 12-12-2013 by yamammasamonkey because: (no reason given)

My God if it's the Royal Family it's newzworthy. Deek you on this?? Who's surreptitiously sucking up the Queen's bon bons?!
If I may offer your second star and flag. It isn't really funny or trivial as we get on in years to have our snacks pilfered. I feel personally as also one of the old ones her violation. That Her Majesty should need more close a watch toward just her in-betweeners from the house guards is heartbreaking, and a reflection of lax discipline one would never dream of from the Scots Guard.
In a severe escalation of this behavior I would simply have fashioned for My Lady a light gauge carpenter's tool belt-- but with deeper pockets than which would admit a mere half-pound of ten pennies.
I respectfully submit a container color coordinated ensemble to match her headgear at the moment... i.e. a cram-o-shanty in that gorgeous oxblood red velvet for the marsupialisms while out and about informally. We could swing the kaboodle around under the cape when not in action, somewhat like Travis in Taxi Driver . "You droolin' at me?"
Rationale for the tool belt scheme [is] we must indeed partition the cashews from the pecans/insulated and refrigerated double dark Lindt Balls. Cross contamination of tastes is a travesty.
I forsee also a well concealed modular center system for a big self priming swig of virgin Half and Half to wash down the heavenly almalgam, closely controlled at 35 Fahrenheit. Damn it, if we can afford the nicest warships on the planet let's get her a portable party... couldn't be more than a couple thousand bob and she'll be happy once in a while. Well worth it from my side of the pond.
This humbly submitted as the Benjamin Disraeli of appetite killers. No lox, speed loaders for the old trusty Webley or bagels permitted. But there should be sani wipes in every futility belt.
PS And now for something completely different: the Antichrist smoke signals are shaping up Willie (?). Must go back and read up to see some correlation to the OP if any.. thumbs up.*burp*
Someone must have seen the greasy pink smoke from the Head Gardener's chimney.
EDIT:: Sarcasm definitely off. In total deference to the narrator's tone and delivery, I was snacking at the video myself where halfway in or so was smacked with the Order of the Garter. Serious, heavy stuff and sincere thanks for the URL.
I will digest this video meal completely.edit on 12-12-2013 by derfreebie because: Dessert a banquet, don't miss it
Wow, would you kindly repost this using the "Queen's" English.
Ya'll say us Americans are hard to understand!
Oh and she brings in a lot of money for the uk way more than she costs the taxpayer.
Constitutional Monarch she is...
