Of course we know that there can be exceptions. Plus, she has connections. She is pretty closely related to the ONE person, unequivocally, that can grant British citizenship by a mere pronouncement. I would bet the Queen is not aware. She must have assumed that it was a done deal long time ago.
I think it took me about 10-months to get my British citizenship and my adoptive mother was THINKING of calling (her friend) the Queen to see if she could expedite it. In that light this is even funnier.
I might have to write another letter to MY Queen. SMILE.
