Let's have some balance in covering that handshake

Why when the Queen shook hands with Martin McGuiness did the plethora of media outlets feel the need to label Mr McGuiness as being a former IRA commander? Surely in the interests of balance the Queen should have been given a similar military label, afterall she has many to choose from..Colonel in Chief of the Irish Guards, Colonel in Chief of the Grenadier or Coldstream Guards? Or maybe just the nominal head of the British armed forces?
