THE Queen has vented her anger over the Army equipment crisis directly with No10, it was claimed last night. Internationally-respected historian Andrew Roberts says the Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles are up in arms over the failure to provide Our Boys with bomb-proof vehicles and enough helicopters.
He said: "They are all furious with Gordon Brown over sub-standard equipment in Helmand"...as the Prime Minister spent the traditional weekend with The Queen at Balmoral Castle, Scotland.
That must have been a lovely weekend; Charles turning off the heating to save the world as the Highland damp seeped through the draughty old pile would be nothing to the frost across the table as Her Maj enjoyed Gordon's scintillating wit and repartee. She takes looking after Her Troops very seriously.
