The Queen's 3D Glasses...Exceptionally Awesome?



queen 400 600God save our gracious Queen, long live our noble Queen. And we're saying it with extra force this morning. We knew that our fair monarch would be adding a new dimension to her Christmas Day message yesterday, but we hadn't been prepared for the photos of her wearing the accompanying blinged-out personalised specs.

Obviously, they were customised by her couturier, Angela Kelly, and obviously they have been embellished with a Swarovski studded 'Q' on the sides of the frames. Because that's how she rolls.

The beady-eyed among you will know that the tech-geek monarch wore a similar pair during a visit to a movie training centre in Toronto, Canada, in 2010. For Christmas 2012, though, QE2 upped the ante by pairing them with a sparkly beaded frock and plenty of pearls. Well played, your majesty.

We get the feeling that the 86-year-old has a real taste for this high-tech lark and can imagine her exercising her monarchical powers by subjecting her family to a Christmas Day 3D-film marathon. Monsters vs. Aliens, anyone?
