Apparently old grumpy face Queen Victoria had an "intense relationship" with her Muslim teacher Abdul Karim a clerk from Agra who was a "gift from India".
While Lady Di scandalised the world over her friendship with Dodi Fayed wouldn't it be great if all these English white racists who love to sing their national anthems were actually singing "God Save the Queen" to someone of Muslim origin. After all Queen Vic had 8 kids so who knows perhaps even LM may join in on our national anthem to Muslim British royalty.
All this Jazz about Abdul Karim in his turban being a close friend and confident with an intimate relationship to the "Empress of India" seems pretty amazing while the toffs in the Household scowled. Muslims would probably get as close to Liz and her merry band of dysfunctional comedians by perhaps replacing the bins at Buckingham Palace today so nice one Abdul.
LM thinks it hilarious that Greek Phil and German Liz head up our so called British Royal family however, who knows what Vic and Abdul were up to on that secret night alone in the cottage, somehow I don't think learning Urdu was her top priority.
