Why Prince Lieven, that very fine actress Katie Holmes as Prince Albert - who else?

That's too much!! ;D

How can you ask the Queen to take off her shoes! ???

It's incredible, poor old Lady...


This photo has been altered!  Those are not the queen's legs.   You can see it if you look close enough!

I don't think so. The Queen often wears socks when she is shoesless.

They are, Tampa.   I remember the occasion.   Look at the men, they are in stockinged feet too.

Ridiculous, expecting the Queen to go to those lengths.   I suppose, 'When in Rome....'   Pity the same mentality does not apply in reverse.

Ridiculous to expect any woman of nearly 80 to do that! If someone insisted that my gran have to do it I wouldn't be best pleased . . .

The Queen was visiting a temple. She has always removed her shoes when doing these visits. It is a sign of respect, and you will notice those with her also have removed their shoes. This is nothing unusal. She is well aware of this and is prepared well in advance.

Simply awful. They shouldn't have requested that she wear socks. It just looks absurd. :-/

The Queen was visiting a temple and she removed her shoes and used a veil covering her hair as respect.

The colour of the socks sucks!  :P

Well if it real then thn the the queen needs to invest in a weekly wax job.  If you look close you can see the hairs on her legs.  I would suggest one uses sunglasses to attempt this perusal!

Tampa Bay -- I'm sure that this photo does not show hair on Her Majesty's Royal Lower Limbs.  Probably just the print.

It's a wonder she just didn't appear in her stockinged feet, though.  Perhaps this photo has been doctored...?

Go, Elizabeth, go!  ;D ;D ;D

If you look closer, it actually does.


My parents just bought an 106cm TV and it looks fantastic.


Now, if only Australia's buffoon of a Prime Minister, John Howard, would resign......

Britain's Prince Charles lowers his umbrella on a rainy day before getting into a car after viewing the site of the new Millennium Wood in Bushy Park 20 miles (32 kms) outside of London, Friday May 14, 1999. The wood consists of new trees planted for the millennium to replace a stand of trees damaged in a 1987 storm.(AP Photo/Adam Butler,Pool)
