Keep Your Hands off the Queen’s Nuts!

Presented as evidence in Great Britain’s phone-hacking trial, an email was read to the court today that alleges that Queen Elizabeth II marked bowls of nuts around Buckingham Palace to see if anyone had been eating from them.

The email, sent by Clive Goodman, the ex-royal editor for the News of the World, claims that a memo was sent around to all officers working in Buckingham Palace to “keep their sticky fingers” out of the Queen’s nut bowl. According to the BBC, the email continues:

Queen furious about police stealing bowls of nuts and nibbles left out for her in apartments in the BP/Queen’s corridor. She has a very savoury tooth and staff leave out cashews, Bombay Mix, almonds etc. Prob is that police on patrol eat the lot.

This is when the Queen started “marking the bowls to see when the levels dipped.” Amid laughter, an attorney in the court reassured the jury that the theft of the nuts was “an unproven allegation.”
