A Royal Gaffe?

It had to happen. When President Obama and wife Michelle met the Queen at Buckingham Palace, a Prince Philip gaffe was inevitable.

In the small talk when they first met, the Queen and the Prince were sympathising with the President and his wife about their gruelling schedule since arriving late on Tuesday evening.

“The time lag,” said the Queen, ever the diplomat.

“You’re just trying to stay awake!” said Philip, ever the foot-in-mouth blunderer.

Then the President told the Royals: “I had breakfast with the Prime Minister, I had meetings with the Chinese, the Russians, David Cameron…

“And I’m proud to say I did not nod off in one of the meetings.”

A guffawing Prince Philip then blurted out: “Can you tell the difference between them?”

Now at first I thought that was an insult to David Cameron. But perhaps not. I may be wrong. Perhaps it was a compliment for the Tory leader to be compared to two powerful world leaders.

Either way, it was vintage Prince Philip!

At which point Her Majesty called for the Royal Ball Gag. The Queen was later heard to say, "You're not too old for a spanking you know!"

Realizing that she'd been overheard, Her Eminence hastily added "Oh dear, that was perhaps TMI."

That's pretty tame for The Duke of Edinburgh. He's known for saying some pretty offensive things over the years.

G'day from Australia. I came here from Mojo's site.

Ah, the Duke of Edinburgh - what would we laugh at if he wasn't the sort of person he is!

I'd like to think that he was just implying that the President couldn't see through sleep-blurred eyes. But, that's not very funny!

Well, this was better than the supposed error many right wing media outlets got on about President Obama giving the Queen an Ipod when she already had one (not realizing that she has asked for some files from the Pres which he put on the Ipod he gave her).
