First it was Mila Kunis, then Justin Timberlake, each accepting a Marine's invitation to the Marine Corps Ball to be held in November in Greenville, North Carolina.
Now it's been revealed that there's at least one other famous invitee who has accepted an invitation to the Ball. And this one is more than just Hollywood royalty. She's the real thing.
The Palace announced today that Queen Elizabeth II was "thrilled" to accept the YouTube invitation of a Marine Corps sergeant to attend the Ball. Word is that Prince Philip wasn't delighted with the decision. The Queen was heard to mutter to a friend, "It's none of his business," yet she did quell the Prince's fears by agreeing to be home by midnight on the night of the Ball.
Insiders say that the Queen has the Royal tailors already working on her Ball attire. "Something regal looking, with an evening purse to match, suitable for a kick-ass Ball" is what she has ordered up. The Queen has informed the Royal hairdresser that she plans to dance the night away, so he should be sure to come up with 'do onto which her tiara can be "most securely anchored."
Her Majesty intends to provide her own transportation, her favorite horse, to and from the Ball. She's told friends that if her date gives her flowers, she hopes they will be the kind that horses can eat. But just to be on the safe side, she's instructed her staff to pack her purse with carrots and sugar cubes.
