(Mirror.co.uk)   Just what is Queen Elizabeth's new Diamond Jubilee coach made out of? A little of Sir Isaac Newton's apple tree, a little of Lord Nelson's ship, a little of Henry the VII's warship the Mary Rose and a whole lot of history   (mirror.co.uk) divider line 72

This is all wrong. Emma Frost is the one who turns into diamonds. Jubilee just shoots out little plasma sparks, like when you put grapes in the microwave.

Get your comics right, royal jerks.

Looks like a beautiful labor of love for that craftsman and his team for the last ten years.

I think the best part of it would be looking up the history of all the pieces and piecing it all together.

The Mary Rose has its own museum in Portsmouth (next to the D-Day museum). The story of the sinking and raising of the Mary Rose is very cool stuff. I'm cool with the fact a fragment of the Mary Rose made it into this coach.

Trying to reinforce the idea the royals aren't just a pack of 18th century krauts brought over to give legitimacy to the titled aristocracy after the Norman lines died out.

Oh, wait...

If things keep going like this she'll share a paper sack with the rest of the royals and all the bankers after the shiat goes down.

This is a private project which has periodically had some interest from the Australian government until they realise Liz doesn't want a new ride and sending giant wombat plushies to Prince George is better appreciated. No offense to the dude, because he has actually managed to produce a real imperial pimpmobile, but the whole project is his private obsession, not anyone else's.

I don't see how they are any more or less parasitic than any other mutli-generational trust fund one percenters. Didn't something come out recently claiming the USA is an oligarchy anyway?

Its certainly a better use for it than the fragments that found their way into the annual Portsmouth University Sub-Aqua Club November 5th Beach Party Bonfire...

Caffeine Induced Diarrhea: Why the fark would you do that. Is she noteworthy enough to rid around in that history?


As the second-longest reigning British monarch, behind only queen Victoria by only some 470 days, she IS history. Only Victoria and Elizabeth have even had Diamond Jubilees (60 years). Mad King George III only made it to 59 years.

And for the last 10 of George III's 59 years, he was King in name only, lacking any authority (with the future George IV reigning as Prince Regent), and was essentially a shut-in.

Elizabeth II, by contrast, has been a very active and legally competent monarch for all of the past 62 years.

I saw the traveling exhibit at the Museum of Natural History here in LA many years ago. It was pretty amazing. They had fragments of the ship and recovered artifacts set up in a small scale reconstruction of part of the ship that you could walk through and see what the ship's cabins looked like.
