Did you know that The Queen has got an artificial leg? Well she has. She lost the original one during the war when she and Princess Margaret went out on one of their famous secret walks together. They used to dress up as normal civvies and go to the pictures and then down the pub after. Apparently, the Germans dropped a bomb on the cinema, where they were watching a Noel Coward film, and the Queen had her leg blown off, although Princess Margaret got away with it.
The new leg is made from wood from a tree in Buckingham Palace and she’s got a special servant who polishes it and sands it down now and again so that the royal corgis don’t get splinters when they rub up against it.. She didn’t say anything about it at the time because Winston Churchill told her not to. He told her it would be bad for the nation if they knew that one of the royals had been bombed by the Germans.
They say, that when she dies, her leg will be put on display in a special see-through box in Westminster Abbey so that members of the public can look at it and pay their respects.
It’s absolutely true this is. A bloke down the pub told me.
