The Queen is a big fan of the status quo, as are most of the Royal family and the British aristocracy.
At a recent ceremony at Buckingham Palace the Queen said that she hoped things remain the same for ever. In fact she said that she wanted things to be as repetitive as some of Andrew's old 45s.
"They all sound the same, one after the other," she said. "The same two chords in every song. It could be a metaphor for our very existence. Or it could just be a load of old shite."
The status quo has been around for as long as the monarchy. It is easily identifiable by its monotonous droning voice, repetitive melodies and by the fact that these days everybody finds it to be totally pointless.
Meanwhile, the Queen presented OBEs to a couple of aging hippies in denim. One of them, Francis Rossi, said "You've got to admit that Freddie Mercury looks good for his age. I asked if he had any Charlie. Big mistake. He said 'don't talk to me about Charlie. I've given up on Charlie'. I guess it comes to us all."
