Theme park to rename ride Camilla

Rita - Queen of Speed ride at Alton Towers
A theme park is joining in with the celebrations of the Royal wedding by naming one of its rides Camilla.

Alton Towers has decided to call its curiously-named ride Rita - Queen of Speed, Camilla - Queen of Speed.

On Saturday all the signs will be changed to show the new name and a special TV advert has been made to be broadcast on the day too.

But it's only a quick change, because Camilla will be called Rita again the day after the wedding.

A spokesperson for the theme park commented: "Camilla may not be Queen of England yet, so we thought she might like to take over from Rita and be 'Queen of Speed', just for her wedding day!"
