Queen cannot control (Friday Funnies XXII)

As the American Air Force One lands at the Heathrow Airport, President of the United States strides to a warm and dignified reception from the Queen.
They are driven in a 1934 Bentley to the edge of central London, where they change to a magnificent 300 year old carriage driven by six white horses. They continue on, towards Buckingham Palace, waving to the thousands of cheering Britons; all is going well.

Suddenly, the right rear horse lets out the most horrendous earth shattering fart ever heard in the British Empire.

The smell is so atrocious that both passengers in the carriage has to  use handkerchiefs over their noses.

The incident shakes the coach, but, the two dignitaries of State do their best to ignore the incident. The Queen politely turns to President and says:

Mr President, please accept my deepest regrets… I am sure you understand there are some things that even a Queen cannot control.”

The President, always trying to be “Presidential,” responded:

Your Majesty, do not give the matter another thought… Until you mentioned it, I thought it was one of the horses.”
