HAVE YOU BEEN THE QUEEN LONG?
The Queen of England held a ceremony at Buckingham Palace celebrating British musicians the other day. When she shook Eric Clapton's hand, she asked him if he'd been playing a long time. He replied, "It must be 45 years now." She moved on to the next musician.
I can't believe the Queen doesn't get some sort of pre-ceremony briefing before she sticks her Royal foot in her mouth. I guess when you're Queen, you can get away with anything. It's her world.
