Though maybe the next thing the Mirror will come up with will be the astonishing news that all Royals are made to undergo intense Actor Training.

The assurance made was just to "blind" Britons.

Well, you suggested it was some kind of cover-up. I'm sure the Royal Household has bigger things to hide as to why the Queen wears gloves.

I agree but thats nothing to do with glove wearing. Anyway, on a different note, I just know that the Queen will love being on the Hebridean Princess. I had a brilliant time on it and although it's not as grand as Britannia, I'm sure it'll be lovely.

Actually, the Queen owns some swans, on certain areas of the Thames, not every swan in the UK.
