French Republic snubs Queen
The British press is fuming that the French government failed to invite Queen Elizabeth II, the only living head of state who served in uniform during World War II (though it should be noted that King Michael of Romania remains the only living adult head of state from that era) to celebrations of the 65th anniversary of D-Day. It is hard to know if HM personally shares the media's indignation, but it would seem unlikely for there to be no sense of disappointment at Buckingham Palace. I am not surprised that the president of the bloodstained illegitimate abomination known as the French Republic is more interested in sharing the limelight with Barack Obama. France needs a King, not a President, and in the meantime should show more respect for the head of state of its neighbor across the Channel.
