What glorious news – my favourite football team will be meeting the Queen. Funny that she will be meeting more Frenchmen than Englishmen, though 🙂
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Queen was disappointed about not being able to officially open the new Arsenal stadium due to her back strain, especially as so much effort had been put in by so many people behind the scenes.
“Her Majesty therefore decided to host a tea at Buckingham Palace to thank those involved in the project for all their hard work and to have a chance to meet some of those she would have seen on the day.”
In just as fabulous news, we beat Bolton 1-3. Which shows that we can overcome the physical game as well as keep on scoring late winners. Well done, Gunners!
