Check out this silent newsreel footage of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother! It's silent so you can watch it at work! (BTW, the hip internet acronym for that is SSYCWIAW!)
A British couple were delighted to welcome a special guest to their wedding--Queen Elizabeth II! Upon learning that the Queen had an event for her Diamond Jubilee celebration on the same day at Manchester Town Hall, Frances and John Canning jokingly wrote to Buckingham Palace to invite her to their nuptials. To their surprise and delight, The Queen and Prince Philip altered their schedule just to wish the newlyweds good luck!
I've always had my suspicions, but now they're confirmed: The Queen just can't resist a party!
