Well, there's the phrase "artistic1 liberties", and then there is simply "going too far," and that's how it's believed the BBC in England got itself into a bit of a royal mess involving the Queen of England and an unusual request by an iconic American photographer that the Queen remove her crown for a photo shoot. NBC'S Martin Savage2 takes it from there.

It was this BBC sneak3 peek4 of its upcoming blockbuster fall series entitled A Year with the Queen that caused all of the furor5. Among other things it highlights the royal photo shoot with American celebrity6 photographer Annie Leibovitz.

"I think it will look better without the crown, less dressy, excuse me, the garter robe is so..."

"Less dressy??? What do you think this is? I'm not changing anything; I've had enough dressing7 like this, thank you very much."

Her Highness appears to storm off. But that's not the way it really happened. This was actually the Queen arriving for the shoot, not heading out in the half as the BBC implied. This morning British papers were full of headlines of a Queen gone mad. The Moment the Queen Snapped, shouted one. By mid-day the BBC was in royal damage control mode.

"The BBC has apologized to the Queen today."

By this evening it was the lead story, in part, because it was the BBC, but also because an American would be so bold as to ask the Queen to remove her crown which in this case as anyone in Britain knows, was actually a tiara .

"I have been photographing the Queen for over 30 years now, and no one would ask her to take off her tiara or her crown."

You see, asking the Queen to remove her tiara is a bit like asking this Welsh guard to remove that bearskin helmet, simply isn't done, is it?

You think the Queen was justified8?

I think she is very justified because everything would have been agreed beforehand--what she was going to wear, the shots that were going to happen.

Last month, two Leibovitz's photos of the Queen appeared in Vanity Fair, one with tiara, and one without.

Martin Savage, NBC News, London.

Can't believe I called it a crown. That's our broadcast for this Thursday night. Thank you for being with us, I'm Brian Williams. We will look for you back here tomorrow evening. Good night.

Order of the Garter robes:嘉德勋章

King Edward III (r. 1327-1377) instituted the Most Noble Order of the Garter in 1348. He and the Black Prince (Edward's eldest10 son and Prince of Wales) were the first members of the Order, which is now over 650 years old. It is symbolised by a blue garter. The garter supposedly had its origins at a ball in northern France, attended by the king and a certain Joan, Countess of Salisbury.
