Queen Elizabeth in Halifax, June 28-30

Practice your royal waves, boys and girls.


Apparently a lot of you think I'm wrong to care that Queen Elizabeth will be in Halifax June 28-30, during the navy's centennial. Yes, I know the Monarch is irrelevant to Canada and its government, but so are your arguments. This woman is one of the most consistent pop culture icons of our lifetime. Well before Justin Bieber's garbage was being ransacked by TMZ, Liz had to deal with British gossip media ragging on her hats. Just last week she was in the news for giggling at a guard (amazing photos) and because a BBC host announced she was dead (she's not). Yes, she's done some not-so great things, but whose grandmother hasn't? (Prince Philip is another story though.)

I for one will work on my curtsy, and hunt down an appropriate hat. Cheerio, haters!
