France had insulted the Queen

May 29 2009

Not even begun to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the landing of Allied troops in Normandy, France turned to an international scandal.

Event organizers literally ignored the "existence" of the Queen of England - Elizabeth II. Royal personages, which enjoys great respect among the British, was not in the list of guests invited to France for the anniversary of the legendary landing allies. Meanwhile, during an operation in June 1944 killed thousands of British soldiers. On this the French organizers of the event recalled in London.

French Foreign Ministry also tried to justify himself, saying the queen in France are always welcome. Here are Elizabeth herself, it seems, now does not think so. The Queen responded very strongly - neither she nor anyone else was from the royal family - the celebration will not happen. As the "News", the Prime Minister Gordon Brown is not the case: he just received the invitation.
