While everyone else has been going nuts over the fact that Kate Middleton's royal wedding dress would be put up on display at Buckingham Palace this summer, the Queen had her own opinions on it. Mainly, that the exhibit was "horrid."

On their private tour today, the Queen said, "It's made to look very creepy.'' And while it kind of does, imagine the sting you'd feel while standing next to your grandmother-in-law, who is the Queen of England, as she shakes her head in disapproval of the exhibit of your wedding dress that the rest of the world is losing their mind over.

Kate replied that it had a "3D effect," which is a bit of a peculiar response, but we can't imagine under the circumstances we would have been able to come up with anything better.
