Do you think her tone was pointed? We think her tone was pointed.
Between her birthdays (yes, plural) and Brexit, the Queen of England is having quite the year. And that wasn't any more obvious than when she met Northern Ireland's first minister Martin McGuinness yesterday and she replied with the following having been asked was she well.

"Well, I'm still alive anyway," needs to replace every 'Keep calm and carry on' product in the world.
Queen Elizabeth II also told McGuinness: "We've been quite busy. There's been quite a lot going on. I've had two birthdays, so we've been quite busy."
McGuinness' reply? "Absolutely."
He's absolutely right.
