Fantasizing With Royalty

A totally incongruous scene came to me the other day while perusing London newspapers online:

HRH The Queen of England and her husband Prince Philip, having enjoyed a quiet dinner for two, are now comfortably seated in the Drawing Room with maybe a brandy for him and decaffeinated demi-tasse for Her Majesty. She needs a good night's sleep for that Walk-About tomorrow in Stoke-on-Trent.

The Queen: "Philip, Darling. Instead of watching the delayed broadcast of today's Parliamentary proceedings, why don't we listen to a few of our old favorites."

"Put on some Basie, will you? There's a dear."

A nice fantasy that she would play Basie, but more realistic is that she would play Ellington... The Single Petal of a Rose.
