Happy Jubilee Your Majesty!
I was honoured when the author of my favourite parody Twitter account – @Queen_UK agreed to answer some ‘getting to know…’ questions for my blog a few months ago. Hers is one of my favourite parody accounts on Twitter and I’m always recommending my friends follow it because it’s guaranteed to give you at least one laugh-out-loud moment every day.
I was, understandably, trepidatious about imposing on the Royal interview schedule a second time but, with the Jubilee fast approaching I thought it was worth risking banishment to the Tower of London and requesting a few Jubilee-themed answers from Her Majesty…
DM: What are your memories of the Silver Jubilee?
HRH: One’s Sliver Jubilee was in 1977. One seems to remember that the Sex Pistols were all the rage, although frankly one was a devoted Queen fan.
DM: How will you be celebrating your Diamond Jubilee?
HRH: One shall be on one’s new barge leading a little flotilla of 1,000 boats up the Thames. It’s not the Royal Yacht Britannia, but we live in austere times. We shall sail up the Thames and then onto France where we’ll fire a few warning shots at the continent to remind them who is in charge. Then on Monday Gary Barlow is hosting a little concert at the Palace. Starting to wonder if this were a good idea to be honest. He’s been hanging around the palace like a badly trained corgi for weeks. The DoE thinks he’s angling for a knighthood. Very sorry you can’t make it to the party Dannii dear. One has asked Cliff Richard to do a few of your songs.
DM: Do you have an outfit picked out for your Jubilee party?
HRH: Yes, but one’s outfits are a matter of national security. Rest assured, one shall be colour blocking with the best of them.
DM: Who’s on your party guest list? (And who’s off it?)
HRH: Well, Victoria Beckham and Bono are technically illegal in London so they’re off the list for sure.
DM: What will you be serving at your Jubilee party?
HRH: Gin and tonic chocolates, gin and tonic jellies, gin and tonic ice cream, gin martinis and gin and tonics. And cheese straws.
DM: Do you have a Jubilee gift registry and what’s on it?
HRH: Yes, one does actually. Top of the list: Montenegro. One could do with a little summer retreat.
DM: Have you come across any funny/weird Jubilee souvenirs?
HRH: One has brought Mr Clegg a union flag paddling pool with matching bucket and spade.
DM: Tell us about the Jubilee edition of Gin O’Clock…
HRH: One’s Royal Diaries have been updated and released as a special Jubilee edition paperback and are out now on Amazon.
I can’t quite afford to gift Her Majesty Montenegro, but I think this giant Champagne cork stool and bar table from Roulier White would be the perfect Jubilee gift – guaranteeing our Monarch a right old knees up at the Palace!
You’re never too young to celebrate the Jubilee. I have one of these soldier print muslin swaddles for Ethan from the Little Legs Co. I’m not sure which of us loves it more.
