I have fond memories of seeing Queens of the Netherlands open up for The Lady Bunny backstage at Wigstock years ago.
 
2013-01-28 07:37:08 PM  
Yeah... and my cawk looks like George Clooney.

...

...in reality it looks more like Mickey Rourke in "The Wrestler".

fusillade762: Yeah, I'm not seeing it either. Of course it doesn't help that they don't have any decent-sized pictures of her, instead opting to show the same thumbnails over and over again.


Here's a better picture of the queen-to-be.

The resemblance is remarkable.

Looks more like Katie Couric now that I think about it.

In all seriousness, how much of a royal Fark are we expected to give?

Andromeda: Gee, spend a day and evening hard at work with no distractions and what happens?  Oh nothing much, just the QUEEN ABDICATING!

I live in Holland, Queen's Day is going to be a truly epic party this year!


Hey, you.. Question? Why don't people there label stuff subtitled or dubbed in Dutch on usenet? I hate downloading something to find out its not in English. The exception is porn, where it just gets exotic and freaky.

Genevieve Marie: Princess Maxima has always been one of my favorite royals. I like watching the various royal families because I'm a big fan of their jewelry- and Maxima's one of the few magpie princesses left. She trots out the diamonds whenever and wherever she can.

Now that she's going  to be Queen, she'll probably wear the giant Stuart tiara which hasn't been seen in the Netherlands in a long time- Beatrix never wore it.

Yes, I know- my hobby is lame. As far as I'm concerned, if you watch football you've got no room to talk.


I can't believe you're commenting in this thread!

She is a hot latina. She was born in Argentina and her dad apparently killed sh*tload of people in '70s. That is why he couldn't attend the wedding. She is a hot latina!

Just write the music and movie companies and ask them to help you out. Please.

Genevieve Marie: topcon: It's pretty interesting to read about some of the stuff that's been around for decades...regarding the Brits, at least. They make a point of saying stuff like "This is the carriage such and such used back in 1895," and so forth...a lot of those cars, boats, and carriages have their own wikipedia entries.

Yup- All of the carriages involved in the Royal Wedding were used for other historically significant occasions as well. Trooping the Colour is another event that's always really fun to watch.

Did you know someone fired at the Queen once at Trooping the Colur, back when she was younger and still riding side saddle in the procession? The gun was loaded with blanks, but she wasn't even ruffled- just controlled her horse, kept it from going nuts and let her guards take care of business.


Never heard of that, I don't think, but it doesn't surprise me about her nerves.
 
2013-01-28 07:56:33 PM  
Well yeah, apart from the whole not looking anything at all like Britney Spears thing, she looks *exactly* like Britney Spears. The resemblance is uncanny for the way in which it completely fails to exist.

This is what is wrong with America.

What is your analysis of the Kardashians?

I don't know anything about them, as they don't have a collection of historic jewelry that's fun to trace through the generations.

There's a blog you might enjoy then- The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor. They do regular posts about jewelry owned by the various royal families, including spotlighting one tiara a week.

Would you like to trace my family jewels?

No, I think not, but thank you for the offer.

Somehow I doubt they'd be large or significant enough to be of any interest.

They'd interest you if you placed them in your jewelry box.

See, now it's gone from slightly rude but mildly funny double entendre to crass and boring.


I'm glad I didn't go with my initial idea of suggesting you play with my family jewels.

She looks like Kate Gosselin + Kelly Clarkson. But I am looking at her pics on my phone. And my brightness is all the way down. And the only other light in the room is my kids' turtle nightlight constellation thing.

But other than that. Yeah. Kate + Kelly. Nailed it.
