People say the monarchy is a waste of time and money…

I genuinely can’t think of a stronger foreign policy asset than the Queen. This symbolic speech given last night during her state visit to Ireland was extremely well-received. Most people just couldn’t believe she began her speech in Irish:

Note: at the end she said ‘I like this clanky glass!’ – what a character!

Of course, I’m still nonetheless a victim of my friends’ hilarity and was tagged in this photo on facebook this morning…

Whatever…

(Thanks Rowly)
