Daily Mail: Row over gay wedding ban at former home of Queen Mother

However gay rights group Outrage described the decision not to hold same sex civil ceremonies as ‘ridiculous’ given The Queen Mother’s well-known association with gay people – and claimed it appeared to be ‘illegal’ under sexual orientation discrimination.

Outrage said The Queen Mother ‘would be spinning in her grave.’

‘This seems even more ridiculous given that The Queen Mother surrounded herself with gay people – including “Backstairs” Billy Tallon (her devoted servant),’ said David Allison spokesman for Outrage.

‘Doing this at the Queen Mother’s old residence is particularly odd. She had no problem with gay people – quite the opposite.’
