It is from the "The Queen at work" documentary right? Amazing how sharp the Queen's mind is, she seems on top of every detail!


I loved her estuary commentary, as well as the bit about the bio-diesel train 'getting us finally to the West Country'. No offence to anyone who happens to be from there, or has ancestors from there, but the West Country is deadly dull. I'm sure the Queen was being ironic. (grin) (grin)

You should trust your instincts, Sabbatical. Clearly this video has nothing to do with dynasties or royalty!

Oh yes, it is! We love it. She never ceases to amaze me. She is over 80 now, isn't she? And there she is sitting on that uncomfortable chair pondering on the benefits of switching to bio-diesel..... She is one of a kind

With a look of reproof when her private secretary mentions the cost. ;)

Is she tight about money? I mean, she's obviously not paying for the bio-diesel trail herself, but there is this old story about Queen E roaming the corridors at night and switching lights off!!

IS SHE TIGHT ABOUT MONEY! Tightisima! ;D

You noted the most famous anecdote about her, which was true. There are any number of anecdotes about her famed Scots attitude towards expense. I think that's one of the most salubrious things about the British aristocracy in general -- they are not spendthrifts, if they can help it. Whereas the nouveaux riches just buy a whole new bedsheet, the Queen and others have theirs darned so it lasts another 50 to 100 years. If they can use a bit of glue on broken priceless Sèvres or Wedgewood, they do. (grin)

That attitude, whilst not shared by her countrymen all the time, is seen as unequalled about their class. In fact, the bad opinion of Americans held by Brits is about that tendency that Americans have of being a throw-away society. It comes from this aristocratic ideal of being thrifty and preserving what you can, so as not be flashy or lacking in heritage.

Prince Charles is just as mean as his mother. His only notable personal extravagance the whole of his life has been a U$40,000 sound system for Highgrove. Because you know, you can't listen to operas using a boom box.
