Bono Meets the Queen

Amazing the places yer man turns up! He was amongst various luminaries present at a reception at London's Royal Academy of Art yesterday held to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and to give awards to students.  He spoke of how much the Queen's visit to Ireland last year meant to people there.
"I wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge the extraordinary magic that you made on your trip to Ireland last year."

He joked: "And the Queen spoke Gaelic. I can't even speak Gaelic."

My favourite part was when the Queen did her meet and greet bit at the end where Bono repeated what he had
previously said about he visit but added:

"Did you have fun at all or was it all work?" 

You've got to love him, I'm sure no one else has asked the Queen that Unfortunately you could hear her reply.  

Below is a video of the meeting.

You can also read articles about it in the Daily Telegraph  and Belfast Telegraph
