Inspired by the “Do famous celebrities get junk mail?” thread
A friend of mine and I once tried to figure out how Queen Elizabeth answers her phone. I mean, after all, there’s no way she’s never used a telephone in her life. Now, obvs, she has someone answer it and they patch the caller through to Her Majesty if appropriate. But! She has to announce her presence once she picks up, no? She can’t just lift the receiver to her ear and remain silent. So what does she say?
FWIW, we settled on “Queen speaking.” But anyone who has gotten HM on the horn is welcome to share the experience.
