"Make It So"

Speaking of the private life, I have absolutely no idea how directly the Queen of England is involved in selecting who will appear on the New Year Honours list; and, while I got the impression from The Queen that the Royal Family watches television, it would be impossible to speculate over just what they watch. These thoughts were triggered by the news that Patrick Stewart is on the list and will be granted knighthood. Without detracting from Stewart's many accomplishments, I had to wonder whether, when his knighthood was proposed to the Queen, her reply was, "Make it so!"
