Photo of the Queen

I think this photograph of Queen Elizabeth firing a fully-automatic assault weapon from a shooting rest is real, but I don’t think it is quite recent.

Canadian Mounties Guard England’s Queen For the Second Time

, , , , ,

As a compliment to Canada, repeating a gesture made in 1897 at the time of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (“Royal” only since 1904) is being given the honor of replacing the Queen’s Life Guard for twenty-four hours.

(The Telegraph has it wrong.)

The 15 Mounties will be wearing blue uniforms and will be armed with lances.
