There's one rule when you're doing something that involves the Queen of England: don't f*ck up. Unfortunately, the president of the Commonwealth Games did just that last night during the opening ceremony of the competition in Glasgow in front of an audience of millions.
At first the whole thing was funny, as Prince Imran from Malaysia struggled to open the baton carrying the Queen's message which she was waiting to read to the crowd, and everyone had a chuckle. But then it went on. And on. And on. Until eventually Olympian Chris Hoy had to step in and help. Liz was very much not impressed.
Although she did seem to get a laugh out of Hoy's face once it had all been resolved.
