During a visit to Northern Ireland.

The Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland (Martin McGuinness) asked, ‘are you well?’,

Her Majesty’s reply was, ‘well I’m still alive’.

It’s funny on to levels, one, because it is, and then two, because who the response is to and the history between the two. Sort of a verbal, sticking two fingers up, if you will.

The Duke of Edinburgh is like an uncle you don’t see all to often because things can get awkward fast.

I love this though.

‘just take the f***ing picture’.

Love it.
