Queen Elizabeth visits Germany - level 3

Queen Elizabeth visits Germany - level 3

29-06-2015 15:00

She meets with presidents and prime ministers on a regular basis, but on her state trip to Germany this week, Queen Elizabeth was given an especially warm welcome by a robot. “Very good! Now and what do we do when we see the queen? Very good!”

The robot’s designers had hoped to make it bow to the Queen, but changed their plans at a fear it would fall over.

Her Majesty was perhaps less impressed when presented with a painting based on a photograph of a young Elizabeth on a pony with her father, commenting that blue was a strange colour for a horse.

“And that’s supposed to be my father?”

“Yeah, yeah!”

“If you don't like it, you can get this marzipan. That is from the most famous marzipan factory in Lübeck, the city of Lübeck.”

Difficult words: marzipan (a sweet yellow or white paste of ground almonds, sugar, and egg whites).
