Liz's Diamond Do Cancelled Amongst Economic Doom and Gloom

The Queen (God Bless her soul) has voted with her feet and called the state of the UK economy as it is.

The Queen has cancelled a party to mark her diamond wedding anniversary because she felt it would be "inappropriate" to hold a lavish celebration with the country on the brink of recession.

Guests at the party, which was due to be held at The Ritz this weekend, would have been served champagne from crystal-studded bottles and dined off tablecloths covered with sparkling jewels.

But with her subjects facing rising bills and falling house prices, and the banking system paralysed by the so-called "credit crunch", the Queen has decided that the celebration would be regarded as insensitive.

Her highlighting of the dire state of the economy will not be welcomed by the Prime Minister, who faces daily reminders from his advisers that the electorate has lost the "feel-good" factor – and is punishing him for it in the opinion polls.

Doesn't she look glamorous.

Thanks The Daily Mail

God Bless her indeed! Here's someone who lives with the times. Great decision! thanks for the visit. :)

It's something worth celebrating and she should have gone ahead. She's rich enough (from the proceeds of generations of kings robbing the poor) TO AFFORD IT.

Whoops, capitals not intentional. Finger slipped on caps lock key.

It looked like you felt strongly about that. I agree in a way that she is entitled to that kind of event. My Grandparents "only" got to their Golden Wedding Anniversary. We have our tin one this year. Don't you think that is a bit pathetic for ten years.
