‘Really, Sir Walter’, Queen Elizabeth said,
‘What is it with you men and your ships?
A woman would've nipped down the shops
For 20 Bensons and a bag of chips.’
Sir Walter Raleigh was an explorer who would go to the ends of the earth and do all sorts of unlikely things to try and impress Queen Elizabeth I.
