Chillaxing in the Throne Room

Filed under: The English — theotheri @ 7:41 pm

I learned today that the Throne Room in Buckingham Palace is being transformed into a disco for the night of the royal wedding next Friday.

A friend of Prince William and Prince Harry runs a number of discos, and Prince William’s grandmother — that is the Queen — agreed to give over the Throne Room for a night of chillaxing.  In the meantime, while the Throne Room is being prepared for the gala celebrations, ceremonies that are traditionally performed there, like the granting of knighthoods and other royal honours, have been transferred elsewhere.

If you are young enough, you might already know that chillaxing refers to the ultimate combination of chilling out and relaxing.  I don’t know if the Queen engages in chillaxing.  She is celebrating her 85th birthday today.

I do think she’s a pretty cool queen.
