Did the Queen give Jack Straw a Paddington Bear stare?


I think what you see here is a royal version of the Paddington Bear stare.

The Mail on Sunday suggested that the Queen was less than thrilled that Lord Chancellor Jack Straw didn’t come high enough up the steps in front of the throne as he presented her with the speech last Wednesday, forcing Her Majesty to have to lean forward.

That reminded me of a puzzling glare that I thought I saw the Queen direct at Mr Straw on the day. You can watch it here and judge for yourself.
