The Queen has been talking about her Coronation. If any of you should, by chance, find yourselves being crowned in the future, Her Majesty's advice would be "Don't look down". The crown is very heavy and you might break your neck.

So bear that in mind, it's apparently a lot heavier than a climbing helmet.

Strikes me, we could sell the antique crown we have and replace it with a new, lighter, carbon composite version at some advantage to the exchequer. I garner the likes of Kim Jong-un and Jacob Zuma are constantly scanning Ebay for second hand crowns.

Top tip, I use a little two-sided tape under my rim to stop my crown slipping off when I look down, which I do quite regularly when I come across poor people,

Think the technical term for that is rimming...

I thought that made things more slippy?
