The Daily Star is excited: it is jumping up and down

It headlines: "UK queen voices 'deep respect' for Lebanese." Why is it that only in Lebanon words of diplomatic courtesy are taken "literally" (as Joe Biden would say)? Like she does not say that when she meets with the head of state form other countries? Does the Daily Star really believe that the Queen of England really has "deep respect" for Lebanese? And who cares what the Queen of England think on any subject? I mean, I care about the views of Helen Mirren, but the Queen?
