Here's something to get Queen Elizabeth's britches in a bunch -- video of one of her famous Royal Foot Guards slacking on the job, but in a pretty funny way.
The radical break with royal tradition went down at Buckingham Palace ... where the guard in question decided to put on a show for tourists -- cracking smiles, making faces, and sticking out his tongue.
QE2's protectors usually stand stoned face and never react to anything.
This guy might be smiling in the unemployment line right now.
You Call That a Throne?

It consists of a thousand blades ... was forged together with the hot breath of an ancient dragon ... but Queen Elizabeth II didn't seem to impressed today when she laid her eyes upon the Iron Throne.
QE was out in Northern Ireland checking out the set of "Game of Thrones" when she got up close and personal with the chair reserved for the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.
During her tour of the set, Lizzy met a bunch of the cast members ... including Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie and Conleth Hill.
As for the Queen's REAL throne -- it's pretty pimptastic.
Royal Ginger on the Prowl

Did someone order a redheaded Prince?
Newly single and ready to mingle, Prince Harry hit up the pool at the Soho House in Miami Thursday while in town for a friend's bachelor party. Harry reportedly just broke up with Cressida Bonas after nearly two years together.
Harry and his friends partied at LIV nightclub at the Fontainebleau Hotel Wednesday night ... after dinner at Hakkasan. We're told Harry was rolling with about 13 guys at the club (not including security) and partied till about 2:30 AM.
As our favorite King of Zamunda once said ... looks like Akeem Harry came to America to sow his royal oats. And maybe play some pool.
DJ'ing Like a Commoner
Is This What the Poors Are Doing These Days?

Looking like the uncoolest person on the planet, Prince William did his best poor person impression Wednesday, hitting the "decks" for some "spinning" in Australia ... and Kate Middleton was obviously his only biggest fan.
Big Will and Kate are currently on a tour of New Zealand and Australia, and today's stop was the Northern Sound System in Adelaide, where William got some DJ lessons.
After dropping some "fat beats," William then pulled a Bieber, hitting up a nearby skate park for some "tagging." Or whatever the kids call it.

Queen Elizabeth II gave a speech during a dinner in Windsor in honor of the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, marking the first state visit by a president of the republic since it gained independence from neighboring Britain.
Lord knows if anyone actually heard it.

Kate Middleton and Prince William began their three-week royal tour of New Zealand and Australia today ... and were greeted with a traditional Maori welcome by some of the locals.
Leave it to the folks in New Zealand to show off their best side.
Prince Harry vs. Alex Skarsgard
Training Their Asses Off
For South Pole Showdown
11/10/2013 7:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Prince Harry, Alexander Skarsgard, and "300" actor Dominic West are getting down to the wire before their epic race to the South Pole later this month -- and TMZ has obtained awesome photos of their training sessions from around the world.
FYI, Harry, Alex, and Dominic (each leading a separate team) are set to depart on their subzero 208-mile journeys to the South Pole in about three weeks -- with an ETA of December 17 -- and they've been training like madmen for the last year.
Polar guide Inge Solheim -- who is training the three men -- tells TMZ, they're all in phenomenal shape, prepping by ice climbing, skiing, and hiking around the world.
For example, the Skarsgard pics show the "True Blood" actor heavy backpack training in the Santa Monica mountains in September -- then camping, cross-country skiing, and cold weather conditioning in Norway in October.
The trek is being planned to raise awareness for a charity called Walking with the Wounded, which raises funds to benefit wounded veterans around the world.
May the best man win, but we still gotta ask ...

Post-Baby Bump, Set ...
10/18/2013 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kate Middleton allegedly had a baby 3 months ago -- but there is zero proof of that in these pics of the Duchess of Cambridge flashing her royal midriff all over a volleyball court.
Prince William's wife showed up for a public appearance in London yesterday, sporting wedge heels, and a banging bod that made everyone forget she was ever pregnant.
Kate gave birth on July 22 to Prince George ... and obviously hit the gym on July 23.
Women ... begin hating. Guys ... continue wishing you were Prince William.

The Royal Replacements

Millions of people around the world let out a collective "awwwww" as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out and showed off their new baby king.
However, there were some who couldn't have cared less about all the royal hoopla... so we've replaced the royal rugrat with some random stuff for sheer entertainment purposes.
Royal Baby Name
A Big Miss
7/24/2013 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Prince William and Kate Middleton need to cut loose from tradition -- naming their kid George Alexander is right out of the royal playbook -- which dare we say is getting a little dusty.
We're not saying the royals need to steal a page from Gwyneth Paltrow and name the kid after fruit, but it wouldn't be terrible to give the kid a name that's a little more fun than "George."
No offense, Mr. Clooney.
But let's face it ... the most awesome royal name ever is not held by a royal at all ... it's held by a Jackson -- All hail Jermajesty!
