French president Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni won't have to worry about whether Queen Elizabeth II thinks that they're living in sin when they visit Buckingham Palace later this month. Sarkozy and Bruni are barely legal (the couple were reportedly married in secret on Thursday; they have known one another for two months.) Mazel tov? Vive la France? As the editor of Flaunt magazine put it: "A has-been or a junkie would have been much easier for people to accept [as first lady]. It's not a matter of whether ex-model is a career path for a first lady. It's that nobody can stand a person who has it all." [Telegraph]
