I was thirteen the first time I went to London and I spent half the trip trying to get the Queen's guards to flinch. One specific fellow at Windsor Castle was a dead ringer for Christian Bale - and I was obsessed with their hats. But The Guardian just informed me that each of those spiffy hats takes one whole bear to make, which makes them decidedly less cute. So of course the British Ministry of Defence has asked Stella and Dame Viv to come to the rescue and design not just a new style of headgear but to find an alternative material, much to Peta's liking, I'm sure. The Queen's guards have been sporting those rather large bear hats since the Battle of Waterloo so it'd be strange, but cool, to see them wearing something different. Now if only they'd give us a wink.
