The Queen, Happy to reveal her birthday wishes

As she toured the BBC's Broadcasting House, the monarch disclosed that she had a particular request for a present, and was keen on having a cosy holiday retreat somewhere in the southwest, possibly Weston-super-Mare.
BBC's Trish Fish met the Queen alongside a host of other radio presenters as part of the celebrations in the run up to the Queen's milestone anniversary.
Fish revealed afterwards: "I said 'Happy Birthday M'am and 'What would you like for your birthday?'
"She seemed to be thinking about it. 'Oh' she said 'I don't think I'm supposed to know, but I saw a brochure under Phil's bed of a caravan site in Somerset. It's always been my dream of mine to mix-in with the commoners, have a BBQ whilst relaxing outside the van, especially if it was a nice sunny day. Even if it was stormy there is nothing more charming than listening to the pitter patter of the rain drops above.'
This has fuelled rumours previously printed in ‘The Spoof' about the true origins of the Queen's heritage. This request to live, for some part of the year at least, in a caravan proves to some that she is returning to her roots in her autumn years.
Radio 2's Sir Terry Wogan joked with the Queen as she passed by: "Would we be calling you the Gypsy Queen?" When quizzed by our reporter Wogan replied "She backed off smiling so we're none the wiser."
Radio Five Live's Nicky Campbell asked the Queen who she thought would be the next England football manager. "We asked if she thought Erickson should stay on, and she made a gesture with her hand which we interpreted as no."
The Queen was visiting the Corporation to mark the 80th anniversary of the granting of its Royal Charter in the year of her birth. The first televised royal childbirth; although conspiracy theorists have looked at the film in detail and questioned its authenticity.
She was also officially reopening part of the refurbished toilets in Broadcasting House, central London.
Her visit concluded with a very nice gift presented to her by Michael Grade (Chairman). The new smart green leather digital Roberts will hopefully be placed on the caravan pull-out table by the Duke of Edinburgh each morning.
News just in, Mendip Caravans in Weston-super-Mare is currently holding a waiting list for customers wishing to purchase a new 2006 Delux Buccaneer Clipper 4 birth caravan, with royal crest.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
