Apologies Rodolfo and thank you Paul. Maybe Paul can provide you with direct phone line number to Her Majesty The Queen.

There is no direct number +44 303 123 7300 is the Buckingham palace exchange and they patch through to wherever Her Majesty is even if she is sailing in the Royal Yacht.

I've already spoken to Her and gave her my condolences.

...that's what Bridgerton does to people. In it, everyone just talks to the queen (Charlotte), interrupts her at will, etc etc ... and still has their head attached to shoulders.
Inconceivable!

One does not talk to the Queen before she addresses you. (Paul will tell us!)

Paul I (not to be confused with xilman) phrased the same principle even more aphoristically:
"Only the one with whom I speak is worthy of note, and only as long as I speak to him."

I really never understood his official relationship to the queen. She was his wife. A guess: Elizabeth became queen before they were married.

Ramsey Clark
Quote:
NEW YORK (AP) - Ramsey Clark, the attorney general in the Johnson administration who became an outspoken activist for unpopular causes and a harsh critic of U.S. policy, has died. He was 93.

Clark, whose father, Tom Clark, was attorney general and U.S. Supreme Court justice, died on Friday at his Manhattan home, a family member, Sharon Welch, announced to media outlets including The New York Times and The Washington Post.

After serving in President Lyndon Johnson's Cabinet in 1967 and '68, Clark set up a private law practice in New York in which he championed civil rights, fought racism and the death penalty, and represented declared foes of the United States including former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic and Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman. He also defended former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

Bernie Madoff
Quote:
NEW YORK (AP) - Bernie Madoff, the financier who pleaded guilty to orchestrating the largest Ponzi scheme in history, died in a federal prison early Wednesday, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.
<snip>
Madoff admitted swindling thousands of clients out of billions of dollars in investments over decades.

A court-appointed trustee has recovered more than $13 billion of an estimated $17.5 billion that investors put into Madoff's business. At the time of Madoff's arrest, fake account statements were telling clients they had holdings worth $60 billion.
