I feel I must defend myself!

Knowing that Boy George, the millionaire Cockney barrow-boy is also a "Queen".... and Peter stated that the pretty lady was NOT a "Cockney pearly Queen" I wondered if there was an association there... So, I looked up "Cockney pearly Queen" and found That "Pearly Queen" and "Boy George" share a lot... They both enjoy dressing up in silly outfits, both love being the center of attention and can arguably be described as true Queens of their particular fields (you work out which is which).
Anyway, after researching it, I concluded that Peter (being the good guy that he is) meant that his definition of the Pearly Queen was the one dressed in a traditional Cockney costume covered in mother-of-pearl buttons who is exclusive to the London area and Not Boy George!
See, I learn something every day... This site is soooo very educational!!

Thanks Peter!!

Just to show why I was so confused.. I present the following:

Pearly
King N Queen~~ Boy G.
