White House Seeks a Proper Invitation for the Queen - The Caucus Blog - NYTimes.com
What a HUGE blunder not to invite her! The British sent more troops to Normandy than anybody. The Queen was in the military at the time. Everybody agrees the royal family showed great courage and support during the war.June 1, 2009, 4:10 pm
The Obama administration is working with their French counterparts to make sure that Britain’s Queen Elizabeth — reportedly miffed, according to the British Press, at not being invited to the D-Day anniversary festivities in Normandy this weekend — gets a formal invitation.
Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said on Monday that President Obama thinks the queen should be present at the event on Saturday. “We are working with those involved to see if we can make that happen,” Mr. Gibbs said.
We should just boycot the event if France doesn't grow up.
