The Queen said the experience was "thrilling"

The royal family today disrupted the Olympic torch procession through central London, with the Queen attempting to grab the torch from ex-Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq.

Huq told reporters afterwards she had been "a bit bashed about" not seriously hurt. She added "I was determined to hang on, it was all a bit of a shock. People were shouting 'just keep going'."

In a separate incident, police arrested two activists after they attempted to douse the torch with fire extinguishers. They are thought to be Princes Philip and Charles, Prince Philip having been only recently released from hospital.

The Princes later released a joint statement saying "William and Harry would be here, but one's in Afghanistan and the other's having his hair done."

Meanwhile, other protesters waved placards saying "BROWN BOYCOTT!! WE KNOW THEY'RE BAD BUT THEY DON'T DESERVE YOU!"

The torch continued to the O2 Arena where a concert will be held, headlined by Bjork. The flame is scheduled to be carried to Paris tomorrow.

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