The Queen is lovely, yes, the Queen is nice, and her face lives on coins – but The Queen's Speech is a bit, hm, well. Let's just say it would be more fun if Prince Harry did it instead. While pissed. And playing billiards. Which is exactly how we assume he spends very second of his life.
So instead of watching the Queen at 3pm, we will instead be enjoying Marcel Lucont – Britain's lading grumpy Frenchman – as he reviews the year's events in his own inimitable style. Oh, yes, also, quick note: If you are from Leatherhead, do not watch this video. Sorry, Leatherhead.
You can and should buy Marcel's book, What We French Think Of You British And Where You Are Going Wrong, here. He also has a Christmas song, which you can download via iTunes.
