Not The Royal Wedding!


I thought that being stranded in London over the next few days was going to be Hell. I have no interest in the Royal Wedding, and had already displayed my ignorance on the subject after being interviewed by Reuters, who asked me what I thought of Kate Middleton. I said I didn’t watch the X Factor, and I wasn’t being funny either, I’d somehow missed all the kerfuffle.

So I’m pleased to see a kind of two-pronged attitude to the wedding. On the one hand, the loyalist pubs are starting to look like this, and will probably fill up with people in red, white and blue outfits.

On the other hand, the window of ‘Agent Provocateur’ in Soho has this patriotic lady in a giant rotating teacup surrounded by royal knick-knacks, dispensing all your saucy royal wedding nights needs. Something for everyone, one feels…

    For the coronation a group of male friends dressed as the various people involved (don’t ask where the archiepiscopal robes came from) and re-enacted it on the apartment balcony. They did a Buckingham Palace balcony wave to the passers-by and then sat down to a lunch of Coronation Chicken. As you say, something for everyone.

    I am not sure which is funnier…

    My husband was looking at The George above when he caught sight of the display below it. ‘What on earth is *that* and then he laughed and laughed.
