Iranian officials have called the Queen an "old crone" and effigies of her have been burned in Pakistan after Tony Blair gave a Knighthood to Salman Rushdie. Well done Mr B. Well done. Once again, he drops people in the crap and does a runner.

Pakistan government intervenes in Rushdie row | International News | News | Telegraph

BBC NEWS | World | South Asia | UK's 'deep concern' over Rushdie

The Iranian President said, "The British monarch lives under this illusion that Britain is still a 19th Century superpower and that bestowing titles is something still deemed important"

Well, obviously he thinks it is deemed important or he wouldn't be throwing a girly strop over it. I would protest but as we now have to ask permission to protest, what's the point?

Can Tony Blair give knighthoods? I thought that was something the Queen did.

The honours are recommended by the government; the Queen only has a say over some of the more personal ones like the Royal Victorian order. Not that the Iranians seem to understand. Clever of Tony Blair to do something unpopular that the Queen ends up getting blamed for.

This is total ridiculous in my eyes. I think that it is not to a National Assembly or a Senate to decide whether you can accept the title or not. It is a simple individual to accept the award and not to a government. He is the one being rewarded. I find it sad that the government is not taking this more like a «well done» to one of their citizens.

According to the royal engagements diary, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will visit Belgium on 11 and 12 July. I wonder if this is to make up the state visit that was canceled due to the lead-up to the Iraq war.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will pay an Official Visit and not a State Visit. To bad, their in Belgium, why not have a State Visit while they are there

The funny thing is that the Queen met her own daughter Anne there, so here are two additional pics from today

"The Princess Royal, who is Commandant-in-Chief of the First Aid Nursing Yeomany with her mother, Queen Elizabeth II as they arrive to inspect vintage vehicles used by the yeomanry which assembled in the quadrangle of Buckingham Palace, London to mark its centenary."

The Queen and Anne..
..having fun

Her Majesty had a very busy day yesterday - first was the inspection vintage vehicles.

Later the day Her Majesty reviewed the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, with General Sir Alex Harley, as they paraded in Hyde Park, in central London, 28 June 2007, in celebration of their 60th anniversary.

Some pictures of the event:
