It can’t be much fun being Queen. Surrounded by all those dreadful fawning people, all those hangers-on and scroungers bowing and scraping and touching forelocks, all those bloody flag-wavers, all those speeches of stultifying tedium she’s forced to spout, all those wreathes she has to lay, despite increasingly arthritic knees.
And for what? The Royal Train’s gone, meaning she’s likely to face a blocked toilet in carriage C like the rest of us; the Royal Yacht Britannia is decommissioned so it’s a cruise ship from now on and HM must join the tourist queue for overpriced egg and chips at the caff on Deck B if she’s hungry.
And now THIS: a racist, sexist, narcissistic overbearing spoilt brat of a bully has been granted the honour of a state visit!
As if she hasn’t made her fair share of small talk with tyrants, demagogues, dictators and oligarchs, she now faces an uncomfortable ride up the Mall in the Royal Carriage (at least THAT’S still available!) in the company of a nasty buffoon who has all the social graces of Jabba the Hutt and could well soon send the planet spinning towards Armagedon, either through accelerated climate change or from a sudden petulant desire to press that goddam red button.
Worse, she’ll have to take tea with the man!
Some will say it serves you right, Queenie, for being in a highly privileged, protected position. After all, some of your less privileged subjects wonder if they can get through the winter without burning the furniture, eating the cat or putting gran ‘on the game’.
Against which you can claim,with some justification, that you never asked to be Queen and would love the opportunity on at least one day of your life to do something normal: wheel a trolley round Aldi, for instance, or punt some pin-money on a horse at your local Labrokes.
Luckily I have the solution:, a bold plan that will get you out of a tight corner, appease many a Royal critic and at the same time avert a constitutional crisis.
