A visit from Her Majesty the Queen

Today Speakers’ Corner had a special visitor: Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II. She arrived without warning and without fanfare. Her Majesty graciously chose to stop and listen to each speaker, before heading on her way. All of us, speaker and heckler alike, felt honoured and privileged. Yes, even the republicans among us who decry the British monarchy were silent and respectful.

It was, indeed, a grand day for Speakers’ Corner, Sydney, and one to be remembered.

I guess this scribe needs to be more precise. A man said to Mr Bashful, ‘If you’re making any sense at all, I’m the Queen of England.’
