I have posted this story on my personal blog at least three times (but probably more). I love it. I read it years ago and I love sharing it. It is supposed to be a true story; you’ll have to decide for yourself. I soooo hope it is.
The Queen was entertaining a visiting head of state; they were parading down the Mall in a horse-drawn carriage, chatting nicely, when one of the horses made what can only be described as a rude noise.
QEII: I’m so sorry about that.
HoS: Please don’t apologise; if you hadn’t said anything, I’d have assumed it was the horse.
