The Queen features in an unfortunate picture/headline juxtaposition about fat British girls in The Times today
Somebody from The Times might be getting an angry phone call from Buckingham Palace today.
We can’t imagine that any woman would like a completely unrelated picture of themselves to appear above a front-page headline that reads ‘British girls become the fattest in Europe’ in a paper as popular and as well-known as The Times.
But we find it baffling to believe that it was released for publication today with a picture of this particular woman appearing above such an unflattering headline…

We’re not above making mistakes in these pages so we don’t want to go too hard on The Times (people in glass houses and all that) but we imagine that there are a few wrists being slapped in their offices today; we can only hope that it’s the afternoon edition that ends up in Buckingham Palace and that the Queen herself doesn’t get wind of it.
