Obama Ruins a Toast to the QueenWhen President Obama visited England earlier this year he found himself caught in a rather awkward spot. As he was making a toast to Her Majesty, the orchestra started playing. (The song was, of course, "God Save the Queen," the de facto British National Anthem while is played, in full, when the monarch is present.) Obaama continued through only to end with a raised glass to the Queen, who, of course, did not return the gesture, as her official song was not yet finished. Obama, realizing his mistake, placed his glass down and tried not to look embarrassed.

Nicole Scherzinger Gets Confused
New X Factor judge, Nicole Scherzinger was wonderful at the Royal Variety Performance this year. Unfortunately, she had issues when it came to identifying exactly who was a Royal. She was quoted as saying: 'I’ve met Lord Lloyd-Webber. He is a Lord isn’t he? Fart, I think I called him Sir earlier on!' What Nicole doesn't seem to understand is that she was right the first time. It is Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber, not Lord, as he is not part of the Royal family.

Stamp Pulls Royal Couple Apart
It seems that not everyone think that the Royal Couple are going to last. The New Zealand Post released a commemorative stamp featuring the Duke and Duchess, but unfortunately, it is a double stamp with the split going down the middle. That is, right between the couple, making it impossible to use the stamps without violently ripping Kate and William apart. (Metaphorically, of course.) Not only that, but the Duke's side is worth a full dollar more than the Duchess's.

Commemorative Mug Uses Photo of Prince Harry
I'm sure that we have all, at one point of another, confused someone for someone else. It's only human. Of course when you commemorate that mistake forever on a mug, that's a different story. Before they said their vows, the Royal Couple was the talk of the world, meaning that a variety of opportunistic companies came out of the woodwork to celebrate the couple's love through dishes, watches, mugs and pretty much anything else you can put a photograph on and sell. One mug company apparently did not know the difference between William and his brother, Prince Harry, a somewhat tragic (and sort of surprising!) mistake. Their mug not commemorates the marrying off of Will's bride to his younger brother. Yikes.
Don't worry Prince William Mug, there is always the Pippa Mug.

While discussing all the different things being sold in regards to the Royal Wedding, Matthew Wright, host of "The Wright Stuff," was supposed to "accidentally" smash a plate from the wedding of Charles and Diana. Of course, "accident" turns into accident when he really does smash the plate that is worth hundreds of dollars.
