I am waiting with, frankly worrying, excitement to read who will next take on the role of the Queen Mother. I am accepting of who I am as a person and refuse to judge myself. Gin, at the ready.

I can not breath for laughter at “I’m missing Wimbledon” and “Dear Queen, don’t offer him the good biscuits.”

At his age and because he’s so rich with his golden toilets not to mention that he’s “the boss” on a tv show and now the President, shouldn’t he instinctively know or have learned how to at least attempt courteous behavior? Will he do this to Putin?
