Kylie Minogue was presented with her OBE the other day and proceeded to set another record and break protocol all at the same time. Prince Charles presented Kylie with her OBE and chatted to Kylie for an unprecedented 33 seconds, a huge amount of time for such proceedings apparently.

Then instead of a quick formal handshake Kylie clutched at Prince Charles’ hands with both of hers, breaking official protocol. That’s nothing new for Australians. One of our former Prime Ministers, Paul Keating, placed his hand on the small of the Queen’s back several years ago causing a huge outrage in the British press.

I think Kylie looks beautiful and relaxed and not the slightly scary Botox face she’s been sporting lately. Congratulations Kylie, although I’m still annoyed with you and scared you haven’t announced an Australian leg to your tour!
