People who backed the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations say they now ‘feel like complete twats’.
‘What was all that about?’ said Jack Peters who helped organize a street party and wore a plastic crown for four days. ‘I woke up on Tuesday and couldn’t believe I’d behaved like a complete twat. Talk about embarrassed. I didn’t know where to put myself.’
And Margaret Milton, who dressed as the Queen for the weekend and gave the royal wave to people in her street, said she can’t bear to look at photographs of herself in her local newspapers.
‘I feel such a fool,’ she said. ‘The only good thing to come out of it is that my husband was so embarrassed he walked out and left me.’
‘I camped out for three days in the rain and cried when I saw the Queen without the Duke of Edinburgh,’ said Mildred Thirlby. ‘What a wally! I should have known better because I also made a complete arsehole of myself when Princess Di died.’
