Tis a true story, and this weekend our Queen, as in Queenie Liz the second, as in not Dame Helen Mirren flings open the doors to Buckingham Palace and hollers ‘We’re open for business, boys’. Yes, it’s the beginning of the Summer Opening and, this year visitors and stalkers alike get to have a peek in Her Maj’s drawers (hello) to mark the 60th anniversary of the Royal Tour.
To mark the occasion QEII will be showing off (read ‘digging out’) some of the fabulous outfits she’s worn, trinkets she’s picked up and gifts (read ‘any old shit’) she’s been given in her 60 years of globe trotting. We’re hoping there will be a bit of mouldy Blackpool rock in there and perhaps a novelty fridge magnet or a tat snow globe or an ‘I heart *insert country of choice*’ t-shirt, or the best holiday memento of all; a tea towel. Whatever she’s rooted out, we’re sure tis wonderful.
Be sure to get your HRHeiney holes down to London’s glittering Buckingham Palace from 26th July – 30th September.
