QUIZ: The Kwality Kounterfeit Kween Kwiz

So as you've probably seen / celebrated / vomited up your spine in anger at its The Queen's 90th birthday, a chance for every boring person on Earth to repeatedly express an opinion. Personally speaking, I couldn't give a stuff either way but I hope she doesn't get bummed by an escaped gorilla from the zoo too. Not saying I'm Jesus etc etc...

As in someone in his thirties, my generation is in a unique position to have seen more parodies of The Queen and the Royal Family than the real people themselves. Looking back at the launch of a certain satirical programme's brand of latex lampoonery in 1984, there was absolute uproar at the announcement they were going to feature the Royals on a weekly basis. They can't talk back you know! Boo-urns! Ironically, those sketches made this distant extraordinary family much more human and relatable to a wider audience.

Nowadays, parodies of the Royals come thick and fast, especially from the U.S. who are obsessed with our dear old HRH Wossname. So, unsurprisingly, today's quiz features ten particular spoof appearances of Elizabeth II from various television programmes...but which shows would you have seen these "sort of Queen"s? Answers before King Ralph does a face.

Hellllooooooooooooooooooooo Queen!
