Royal Week in Review – July 28, 2012

Olympic Torch RelayThis week, Queen Elizabeth II had lunch with four Prime Ministers and welcomed world leaders to London for the Olympics. She (and her corgis) even found time for an unexpected encounter with Bond — James Bond.

In other news, Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco marked their first year of marriage with an awkward joint interview. I wanted to post that video here, but it seems to have already disappeared from the CBS News website. Hmm.
