i find it totally inhuman and insane, and i wanted you to know about it. i think doing this on an animal that cant defend itself is cruel and totally mean. how could this happen?




Queen's Guards are animals



World renowned ... but The Queen's Guards are under fire after explosive allegations

By TOM NEWTON DUNN
Defence Editor

TWISTED Queen’s Guards made a horse drink huge amounts of alcohol in a cruel prank.

Soldiers forced eight cans of strong Stella and a bottle of red wine down the animal before it went out on parade.

The claims were probed last night by the RSPCA and Army.

This is hilarious!

27/02/05 - News section


Queen won't miss wedding... Ken Barlow's, that is

She won't be attending her son's wedding - but there is one register office marriage the Queen is determined to witness on April 8.

In the corridors of Buckingham Palace it has even been hinted that the desire not to miss the evening ceremony lies behind the Queen's decree that Charles and Camilla's wedding reception is finished by 6pm at the latest.



According to one Royal source: "Her Majesty is a huge fan of Coronation Street. She rarely misses it and it has been pointed out, only half-jokingly, that Deirdre and Ken Barlow's wedding is screening the same day that Charles and Camilla get married.



"It's an hour-long special and the Queen wants to be comfortably in front of the telly for the 7.30 start."

As one aide rather pointedly observed: "The Queen's really looking forward to watching Deirdre and Ken get married."

March 1, 2005: Queen Elizabeth at a reception hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace. The all-star gathering is a royal tribute to Britain's music industry and follows an earlier children's concert at the Palace for 250 youngsters from schools in five London boroughs, alongside choristers from the Chapel Royal.

What is this world coming to when these guys get to meet the Queen? O, my how things changed. I liked how the Queen didn´t know who they were. It´s kind of funny though. I´m just glad she didn´t think they were accountants. ha ha ha. Even Ray Davies was there. O, my:


He may have been known as "God" by rock fans, but guitar legend Eric Clapton's a bit of a mystery to the Queen.

And so is Queen's Brian May, and Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck.

"And what do you do?" was her question to the four giants of the music industry.

Brian May reminded Her Majesty that he played the National Anthem on the roof of the Palace to start the 2002 Golden Jubilee rock concert.

"Oh! That was you was it?" the Queen exclaimed.

Moving on to Jimmy Page, the Queen inquired: "Are you a guitarist too?"

Eric Clapton took no chances and, firmly shaking the Queen's hand, introduced himself by name.

"Have you been playing a long time?" the Queen asked.

"It must be 45 years now," replied Clapton, 59.


Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell turned up 40 minutes late for the reception at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the British music industry.

Some 500 celebrity guests began arriving an hour before Her Majesty.

By the time Halliwell showed up the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were already greeting guests including Eric Clapton, Charlotte Church, Cilla Black, Roger Daltry, Robert Plant and Dame Shirley Bassey - all of whom arrived on time.

Halliwell's late arrival was a breach of royal protocol. The Queen is supposed to be the last person to enter a room for a royal engagement.

On her way in, the former Ginger Spice said she felt "fantastic" at being invited to the reception.

While the other female stars dressed up for the event, Halliwell turned up in a pair of casual cream trousers.

By contrast, Charlotte Church arrived - an hour early - looking elegant in a printed chiffon dress by New York designer Diane von Furstenberg.
It is the second time Church has met the Queen at Buckingham Palace - the first was at a Women of Achievement lunch last year.

"I really don't know why I'm here but I feel very honoured to be asked," she said.

The singer has had a trying few days. On Sunday her ex-boyfriend Kyle Johnson sold his kiss-and-tell story to a newspaper.

Church put on a brave face and said: "Things haven't been great but best not talk about that tonight."

Other stars who turned out for the event included Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins, Pete Waterman, Phil Collins, Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt of Status Quo, and Ray Davies of the Kinks.

PA

To the dungeons for Geri for her breach of protocol. Like we need a reason anyway...
