By Royal appointment

The Queen has been in Liverpool to have a gander at the new developments. But a Confidential employee 'papped' our special visitor unawares, and it looks like Her Majesty had a few other errands to run...

Published on May 24th 2008.


By Royal appointment

ACCOMPANIED by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen toured the Arena and Convention Centre after arriving by car in front of a crowd of more than 100 well-wishers.

However as a throng of people waited outside St George's Hall for a glimpse of the Monarch, Her Majesty kept them waiting by making some unscheduled and informal visits in and around the city centre to discover the real Liverpool.

But where could she be? First stop - the Bling Bling Building.

"Alright Queen?"

"Alright Queen?"

"Could one call Delta please?"

"What's Philip doing in there? That trumpet player
outside Argos is doing one's head in"

"I wonder if they do coronation chicken"

"See. One knew one would never be missed for 20 minutes"

Mrs Storey: "You aren't fooling anyone Rex. We all know that's you hiding under the lady's black skirt.

Didn't the Queen meet Pete Price today? So that's another old queen. God bless 'em all, I say.

I thought that photoshopping Mike Storey next to the Queen was very funny. Nearly as good as the elves at Christmas

The Duke of Edinburgh`s first name is Philip, not Phillip.

How come you missed the Queen dancing in the Bar Baa after downing some shooters? She even invited me back to hers for a party.

Thank you Anonymous for your royal correction. And that's enough Photoshop (Ed)

I knew that the Queen legally owns all the Swans in the UK, I didn't realise it was The Swan Inn as well!!

What's wrong with the bargain shop? It's the highlight of my week going in there - they've got some great garden stuff on offer at the moment - gnomes for a quid, solar lights, those little wooden flowers. They would look perfect on that big lawn in front of Buckingham Palace.

Queen to Mike Storey: "Now where is your chain? Call yourself a mayor you scruffy little man. Off with your head!"
