Queen Elizabeth Makes Surprise Appearance at British Couple's Wedding

(source)
This was one of the funnest things that I heard all weekend:
A British couple booked Manchester Town Hall for their wedding and then discovered a royal visit was planned for the same place, an event for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

According to the Manchester Evening News, upon hearing the news of the double booking, the couple sent the Queen a lighthearted note inviting her to their nuptials. The couple was surprised to receive a reply from the Palace, not to mention when the Queen took a detour from her schedule to wish the couple well on their big day.
I have long believed that Queen Elizabeth is one of the coolest royals of them all. How fun would it be to have to the Queen drop by your wedding for an unscheduled stop?
