I was going to call this “Two for the Price of One”, or “Buy One Get One Free (BOGOF)” but, of course, none of that is true.
Two separate weddings; two separate months; two separate costs to us. No reductions.
Only one family though. But one that is so much more expensive than those that the Daily Mail moans non-stop about costing us a fortune.
Not that Eugenie is that important. I mean, all she is known for is being the daughter of Tubby Airmiles and Fergie, and spending almost her entire life on holiday. (It didn’t go unnoticed that she was in Nicaragua when she got engaged. Nice if you can afford it). But, of course, her more famous relatives will be at her wedding, including the by then recently wed Harry and Miss Marple, and therefore security will be ratcheted up at massive expense to us.
So far we know little about the wedding, but I expect that Windsor can expect the beggars to be swept off the streets once again by the Tories, lest important people of quality should have their eyes offended, even for a few seconds in the passing.
I read some time ago that the couple, once married, will share a house, belonging to us, in the grounds of Kensington Palace. Thank goodness there is no shortage of affordable housing in Kensington Palace.
Of course, all these royal things going on (Kate’s having yet another child as is Zara Philips) is bound to distract the hard of thinking from the dire mess that Maybot and her dysfunctional team are making of Brexit as B day 2019 gets closer and closer.
Is it not high time we got rid of this half mediaeval, half showbiz family with their marriages, births, divorces, holidays and funerals at our expense?
