The Wall Street Journal Europe finds Lizzie's Windsor's visit to Ireland pleasing:

Queen Elizabeth II will visit Ireland today, the first state visit by a British Monarch since the founding of the Republic in 1921. 

It'll come as news to custodians of the memory of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (Lizzie's mother) that Ireland became a Republic in 1921.  It was in 1949.  Just so you're ready for that trivia question: Who was the last King of Ireland?
