I think it is important to stress we should not get this out of proportion.
Watching UK media report on the Queen's Diaorrhea is one of those times when you realise what a strange country this is. Heroic attempts to make the whole episode seem dignified. That 'keep calm and carry on' thing. The unspoken but ever present question over whether she will actually crap herself to death, and how we-the-media are going to handle that.
