Martin McGuinness may greet the Queen in Gaelic, claim insiders
McGuinness meeting the Queen yet to be confirmed
Queen Elizabeth is set to make a stop in Northern Ireland next week as part of her Diamond Jubilee tour and talks are ongoing as to whether or not Deputy First Leader Martin McGuinness will greet the monarch, and if he does, whether he’ll greet her in Gaelic.
The Belfast Telegraph reports on the possibility of the Sinn Fein member McGuinness meeting with the Queen at Stormont.
McGuinness has said that there has been no “do-able proposition” put forward to his party in regards to meeting Queen Elizabeth.
However, one Sinn Fein insider said, "There is a strong suggestion that he might address her in Irish, as a follow-on from her remarks in Irish in Dublin last year - and that has support.”
"If it happened then he would shake hands with the Queen but he would not be tipping his head or calling her 'Your Majesty'," he added.
