China censors social media posts about "rude" Queen

Social media users in China are keen to comment about the Queen's remarks about "rude" Chinese officials, but many have had their posts removed.

Some have bypassed government filtering by using English, rather than Chinese, to replicate the comments made by the Queen.

BBC Monitoring looks at how the online censors were thwarted, even as the Chinese state attempts to 'clean up' the internet.
