This morning I met the Queen
Well, she waved as she swept by in her carriage to open this session of Parliament :) Unfortunately she also forced me to cycle miles out of my way to get to a meeting at Scotland Yard. Her procession of mounted guards was something to behold; as was the fleet of ambassadors, admirals and peers that glided by afterwards in their Jaguars, Mercedes and BMWs. If you are a fan of British pageantry this is an occasion you really shouldn't miss.
