Concluding it was the best way to ensure she remains comfortable during her twilight years, the British Royal Family recently placed Queen Elizabeth II into a local nursing home, sources confirmed Wednesday.

“Members of the Royal Family are in agreement that they simply do not have the time or resources to personally provide Her Majesty with the type of constant care she needs and deserves at this point,” said a Buckingham Palace spokesman.

It was added that the family had selected a facility within the city of London in order to make monthly visits from her children and grandchildren feasible.

“The Queen has never wanted to be a burden, and with this arrangement she will be surrounded by others at a similar stage in their lives.

While the accommodations are perhaps not what she is accustomed to, she will no doubt enjoy the many organised activities, such as movie night and occasional excursions to the shopping mall.”

At press time, Prince Charles was assuring his irate mother that she would be put in a private room as soon as one was available.
