Sunday will be Net Day, where as you say the Queen is strategically launched around England, into giant receiving nets, to limber her up some for the next day space journey. You saw how much attention the torch relay had, well I can guarantee when the Queen is catapulted 150 miles across the country into a giant net, inside your town, people will start watching.
Definitely not - I can picture the Queen removing the American flag on the moon and replacing it with her own standard (a flag with the image of the queen being catapulted across the pennines) but beyond that this is the Queen and the monarchy at base purpose. Really connecting with the public through the medium of cross-country monarchical launches, it's just something very beautiful and makes me very patriotic. It makes me proud to be catapulted, ...I mean British.
