Mr G recently heard the following story concerning the late Queen Mother.
In her old age, HM QE the QM was a fan of American telly soaps.
She was watching such a programme one evening in the company of longstanding lady-in-waiting who happened to be a wee bit deaf.
At the climax of a typically fraught scene, a young male character announced: 'Gee, I feel so much better since I came out of the closet!'
The lady-in-waiting turned to the QM: 'I'm sorry, Ma'am - I didn't catch that. What did he say?'
The Queen Mother didn't miss a beat: 'He said that he's feeling much better since he came out of the wardrobe.'
