Embarrassed teenage streaker apologises to Queen

A teenager who streaked across the lawn at the Queen's summer garden party is "extremely embarrassed" by his actions.

The 17-year-old, who has not been named, is writing a letter of apology to the Queen after his stunt at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

The youth, who was attending the event with his family, pulled down his trousers and blue and white striped boxer shorts and charged across the neatly cut grass of the Palace grounds in front of 8,000 guests.

The crowds of onlookers cheered as he was rugby tackled and apprehended by a Yeoman of the Guard dressed in red and gold ceremonial costume.

His father - a teacher from the south of England - apologised in a statement issued through Buckingham Palace.

"He regarded it as an honour to attend the Royal garden party," the father, who has also not been named, said.

"He is extremely embarrassed by the incident and regrets any discourtesy

"I would like to apologise for the ill-considered actions of my son."

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: "We understand that the father of the young man involved in this streaking incident has apologised.

"We also understand that the young man concerned is writing a letter of apology to the Queen. We regard the matter as now closed."

The youth was not arrested, but spoken to by the police and later escorted out of the Palace grounds.

QUEEN&#39;S EMAIL MAD

Aug 10 2003

By Stephen Martin And Alan Rimmer

THE Queen is hooked on sending emails to Prince William while he is on a tour of Africa.

And unlike Prince Charles, who pompously dictates emails for his secretary to send, the Queen, 77, types them herself.

In the last fortnight she has been sending emails to William on his travels, and to Harry, who has been enjoying the summer social whirl of polo parties at home.

The monarch was introduced to the joys of going online by Prince Andrew, who bought her her first mobile phone two years ago. He has shown his mother how to send and receive emails and how to forward them to friends and family. Following her lead, even the notoriously anti-modern Prince Philip, 82, has signed up for email too.

A Palace source said: "They think it is amazing that they can communicate at the click of a button. The Queen does a lot of it herself and so does Prince Philip.

"The Queen is not a very fast typist - but she is getting quicker. Apparently she was very impressed that George Bush senior was sending emails, so she asked how it was done."

The monarch is using email only for personal matters, including talking to her horse racing contacts. Official business is still done by letter.

The Queen has beaten Tony Blair, famous for being computer illiterate, to getting online. Next month the PM will unveil an email address for the public to write to him about Government performance.

Harry&#33; Can&#39;&#39;t you give it a rest? A bit hacked &#39;orf to see you cavorting with more fillies at the polo. Did you really have to prance up on the stage with that woman?

LONDON (AFP) - Queen Elizabeth II is planning to buck security fears and become the first British monarch to visit Ireland in 90 years.

The visit, the first since the partition of Ireland in 1921, has been agreed in principle by Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, and the Irish government, The Times said Saturday.

Prime Minister Tony Blair is likely to give the go-ahead for the historic visit if there is progress in the Northern Ireland peace process and no return to violence in the province, the newspaper said, without giving a specific date.

The queen would become the first British royal to set foot in Ireland since George V made a stop there in 1911 as part of his accession tour.

"The visit has been agreed through the usual channels," said a courtier quoted in the broadsheet.

"It is the government&#39;s call. But a trip by the queen to the Republic of Ireland would put a seal on something in the peace process. It would be the cherry on the cake," the courtier said.

Northern Ireland&#39;s Roman Catholic republicans want the British province reunited with the Irish Republic to the south, while Protestant loyalists want to maintain links with Britain.

The province has enjoyed one of its most peaceful summers on record and there is guarded optimism about the prospects for advancing the peace process in the future.

"She (the queen) would love to go. She would be fascinated to go," said the courtier quoted in The Times.

Lib Dems to vote on abolishing Queen

Liberal Democrats are to vote on a proposal to remove the Queen as head of state, it has emerged.

The motion, proposed by Liberal Democrat Youth and Students for the party&#39;s conference next week, will cause a headache for leader Charles Kennedy.

It is likely to arouse controversy when Mr Kennedy is trying to position his party as a credible alternative to the Tories as the main opposition in the run-up to the general election.

Mr Kennedy tried to play down any embarrassment, insisting he was pleased to have young members who were ready to rock the boat.

But he made clear he will take no part in the debate on Sunday and will not vote on the motion, saying he would be "in meetings".

The LDYS motion calls for a national referendum on the future of the monarchy, in which the Lib Dems would be committed to campaigning for an elected head of state.

Under the proposals, members of the Royal Family would be permitted to stand against commoners for election as head of state for a fixed term.

It also calls for the lifting of the ban on MPs discussing the nature of the UK&#39;s head of state and for the royal prerogative to be put under the scrutiny of Parliament.

It is not the first time that the young Lib Dems have caused problems for the leadership at conference, following proposals in recent years to legalise cannabis and to give 16-year-olds access to hard-core pornography.

about 1958. Visit to Canada. In this instance, it looks like she visited Ocean Falls, BC.

I was in error with the year. According to the Queen&#39;s webpage, the Royal Visit was from June 18 to August 1 of 1959. I wonder where I might get the daily itinerary of that visit?
