The event was intended for prime ministers and presidents rather than royals, Mr Brown said but:
" if the queen wanted to attend these events or if any member of the royal family wanted to attend these events, I would make that possible,".
Gordon Brown speaking on the BBC earlier today.
A former, and possibly the most popular after Winston Churchill, United Kingdom Prime Minister made a very famous remark about events.
Attempting to insult our Head of State is an attempt to insult us all - whether we are royalists or republicans.
Mr Brown will represent the UK at the events in Normandy, to mark those who died storming the beaches 65 years ago. We are to be represented by a liar and a coward.
