Shoppers in Shanghai were in awe when they mistook this woman for Britain's Queen Elizabeth. In fact, she's an actress flown in to promote tourism to the UK. Britain will celebrate the Queen's 60 year reign the first week-end of June and in July and August London will host the 2012 Summer Olympics. And to set the right mood shoppers were served English afternoon tea while serenaded by a Beatles tribute band. Hopefully some of these enthusiasts will make the real trip. Elly Park, Reuters.
