image for US Photographer Shames Queen, Crown

Esteemed celebrity photographer Annie Liebowitz insulted Queen Elizabeth earlier this week when she asked the UK's monarch to remove her crown during a photo shoot.

The queen was put off by the request and let the shutterbug know it.

A royal spokesperson said that is just not something you do with royalty, noting how inappropriate it was to ask the queen to remove the crown.

"It's horribly improper," Nigel Ian Goldingbottoms, Buckingham Castle spokesman said. "You just don't ask the queen to take off her crown especially during a photo shoot."

Britons believe that having their photo taken can result in the loss of their soul.

Explains Goldingbottoms,"The crown acts as a preventative to this horrific event."

Other requests considered inappropriate by royalty are 'bark like a dog', 'squeeze your butt cheeks together' and 'stand on your head and stick out your tongue'.

Prince Charles could not be reached for comment; rock star Bono, however, is in the process of setting up a concert to raise money to lift the queen's spirits.

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