A collection of rare Indian objects belonging to the Royal Collection are being shown in Bradford and Leicester. The items were presented to Edward, Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VII, during his Indian tour of 1875-6. The four-month tour, which included modern-day India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Nepal, came after the proclamation of Queen Victoria as Empress of India.

Queen Elizabeth

We Are All Queen Elizabeth II In This Self-Checkout Lane The struggle is too real.

We Are All Queen Elizabeth II In This Self-Checkout Lane The struggle is too real.

Her Majesty The Queen
The self-checkout lane, in theory, is a beautiful thing. It rarely has a line and allows you to pay for and bag items at your own speed. But that glory can swiftly dissipate when you encounter even the smallest issue. Can’t find the produce code on your grapes? Accidentally push a wrong button? Or, even worse, forget to remove items from the dreaded bagging area? You’re doomed. It is that sheer horror and quiet desperation that finally gives us something in common with Queen Elizabeth II. Her facial expression alone while visiting a self-checkout lane at a store on Thursday is familiar to any shopper who has waited... and waited... for a manager to come over and void their self-transaction. The queen was visiting a supermarket in Poundbury, a new town in southwest England built as
