Charlie Crist's breach of royal etiquette

If they're trying to make a dent in Charlie Crist's popularity, Progressive Pensacola should probably look elsewhere:

Charlie Crist horrified some guests for botching protocol last night at a dinner for 400 at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. Crist left the dinner at 11.30 p.m. — 10 mins before King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, leaving the Queen with an empty seat beside her. Total no-no.

If, on the other hand, it's just a reporter having fun, Florida Progressive is ready to oblige:

It seems Our Charlie left dinner in Miami early Friday night, leaving an empty seat beside the Queen ... and you don't want to piss off the Queen. (All "queen" puns and jokes regarding Gov. Crist may be left below in Comments.)
