Wait. How is it possible that Queen Elizabeth has never been to the Kentucky Derby?
The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, will attend the 133rd Derby as part of a six-day trip to the United States that also includes visits to Virginia and Washington, D.C.
Clearly, Her Majesty is scouting for new suitors for Prince William. I'd like to inform Her Royal Majesty that I am not going to be in Kentucky for the derby. Though I suppose that could change. Life is strange.
But the Kentucky Derby is the perfect place for the Queen. Derby fans wear funny hats; the Queen wears funny hats. Put Queen Elizabeth in a bright pink, Saturn-ring-diameter hat and I am so there. And I don't even like mint juleps.
