Lovely clip and pictures. Her Majesty looks fantastic, as pretty much always.

US magazine Globe claims Queen 'is dying and Camilla has evil plot to claim throne' | Mail Online

Quote:
An American tabloid has published a shocking front cover claiming that Queen Elizabeth is dying and the Duchess of Cornwall has an 'evil plot' to seize the throne.
Globe magazine alleges that the 86-year-old monarch is 'sick and fading fast.'
The cover of the weekly magazine shows a close-up photo of the Queen with the headline 'World Exclusive - Queen dying!'

Isn't that the same tabloid the runs stories about alien abductions, Elvis sightings and babies born with the faces of animals?

The Globe is just... worthless. Tasteless to the point of being funny, if you are familiar with their front pages. These people brought us Bush on Cocaine in the White House, various Obama and Clinton scandals, too many photos of dead celebrities (coffin, ambulance and autopsy photos - not nice photos of them when alive), celebs with 2 months or two years to live etc.

I apologize on behalf of all my fellow Countrymen and women.

It's run several royal stories about how Catherine has told Camilla to 'go to hell' and how Charles constantly has arguments with his mother and I think I read one time they published a 'I wish she was gone' story.

The Globe has "people they hate" and go after regularly. All our presidents (and families), Kathie Lee Gifford, the royal family seem to dominate.

I usually joke with the clerk in the checkout line about the headlines.

Oh this is too funny!! On the other hand, there's a wee bit of the truth is what is stated too. Sometimes I think we would be better off with a constitutional monarchy or at least an apolitical head of state.

I'm glad this election will be over in a matter of hours. My candidate? Felix the Cat. This country needs a magic bag o' tricks.
