Coronation Street Live Activists Try To Free Camilla And Charles From Night At Royal Variety Show: Photos

THE anti-Royal Variety Performance campaigners were not enough to save Prince Charles and Camilla from an evening spent with the N-Dubz, Mark Owen and comedy’s very own Mr Johnny Boden, Michael McIntyre. Says a spokesman for the masked activist network:

“We knew Coronation Street Live was on and that Camilla was a big fan. To see her hermetically sealed inside that mobile fish tank was a scandal and an outrage. We tried and tried to bust her out but it was no use. The glass was just too tough. Sorry, ma’am.”

Says Camilla:

“Never again. Please.”

Wikileaks: Queen Elizabeth And An Oman Honeymoon

LAST time we saw Sultan Qaboos bin Said of Oman, he was giving Queen Elizabeth 2 a golden egg, we thought her haul was pretty good. But then the Wikileaks cables were leaked and we learnt that in 2008 Qaboos toured the Mediterranean on a yacht with a 700-strong entourage. Liz stuffed up. She got Prince William’s wedding gift but lost out on the free honeymoon. Kicks up the Qaboos all round…

Wikileaks: Prince Andrew Went Hunting For Women After Brunch (Photos)

WIKILEAKS has not only managed to local Prince Andrew but made him appear to be newsworthy. The story goes that Tatiana Gfoeller, Washington’s ambassador to Kyrgyzstan, spotted Airmiles Andy at a brunch.

Indeed, readers. Shock of shocks that American cultural imperialism now includes brunch in Kyrgyzstan. (Toss out the yak butter and horse milk surprise and make mine a tall stack of pancakes with syrup and a banana smoothie.)

The ambassador says Randy Andy spoke cockily” to a gathering of eating British and Canadian businessmen and “verged on the rude“.

Again, a shock. Andrew was only nearly rude. He didn’t look at the women’s chests the entire time. Blame it on jet lag.

One cables says that – ready for this? – Prince Andrew goes hunting!

Jordanian King Abdullah II is a close friend of UAE Armed Forces Chief of Staff Muhammad bin Zayid Al-Nahyan (MbZ). The two frequently hunt — in Morocco and Tanzania — joined, more often than not, by England’s Prince Andrew.

Hunting for women? Hope so. Andrew has worked tirelessly to gain a reputation as a gadabout womaniser. Charles hunts. Andrew shags. Edward is not gay. Anne has tweed knickers. It’s just the way it is.

So. Andrew is rude. But over at the Telegraph, towards the top of the story, we learn that the Duke treated her with “with cordiality and respect”. This fact seems to have escaped the Guardian. Might it be that in the rush for transparency and the quest for freedom of information different new organs see what they want to see? And then there is the issue of actually taking these cables at face value and not questioning if they could have been manipulated in the chain between leaker and publisher? Is Wikileaks just Popbitch for politics?

The edited cable, as reported in the Guardian, goes:

Rude language à la British … [Andrew] turned to the general issue of promoting British economic interests abroad. He railed at British anticorruption investigators, who had had the ‘idiocy’ of almost scuttling the al-Yamama deal with Saudi Arabia.”

Gfoeller is super smart and able to speak six languages. In that extract she speaks two at once. You want clever – you can’t handle clever, mon brave.

Wikileaks – What’s the Duke of York done now?

Half a day on from Wikileaks’ latest barrage and there’s still no update on one of the juiciest stories that we were promised details on. The Guardian, who has had access to all the leaks, is still keeping mum about some inappropriate remarks made by a member of the British Royal Family.

Although he has plenty of rivals in the foot in mouth league tables in the house of Windsor it is widely predicted that the Royal being referred to is in fact Prince Andrew – or Airmiles Andy as he is known these days thanks to his love of the old foreign jaunt.

Andy has plenty of form in this area too previously taking the US govt to task for not listening to British views on Iraq – a move which breaks royal protocol over what dukes can and can’t say about foreign governments.

So what do you think he has done now? Had a go at the Americans over Afghanistan? Suggested that a few of our former colonies, like the US and Ireland, might be better off being ruled by HM govt? Come on Wikikleaks and The Guardian, let’s have it.

Queen Gets Kate Middleton And Williams’s Wedding Gift (It’s A Vase): Photos

QUEEN Elizabeth II was meeting the cubs at the Ambassador’s residence in Muscat, Oman. She then added to her haul of fancy goods by meeting with the Sultan of Oman, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said.

He was good for a gold vase, a free meal and a gold musical Faberge-style egg. Is it by chance the Queen visits the showy Gulf states before Christmas and William’s wedding to Kate Middleton?

Elizabeth did not head to the Seychelles. In 1972 her top knobs gave her a collection of shells. Germany once gave her a pet canary. Canada offered two black beavers. New Zealand gave her a canoe. In 1994, Russian gave her a portrait of herself. Barack Obama gave her an iPod.

Susan Boyle To Sing At Kate Middleton And Prince William’s Wedding?

IS Susan Boyle to sing at Prince William and Kate Middleton wedding, adding a bit of actual spirituality to the quasi Catholic service?

Writes reader Percy:

I have heard rumour on Facebook that SuBo is to sing at Willy & Katy’s wedding….can Anorak confirm if this is true….and if so which song will SuBo sing?

PS – Maybe this can be Anorak’s next competition – A Right Royal Song & Gift Contest to decide which songs should be sung…and which gifts given for the upcoming event.

PPS – I’ll start the balls rolling:

Song: You Can Keep Your Hat On ..sung by SuBo.
Gift: A slightly used second hand copy of Das Krapital, by Roger Melly.

It’s an idea. Do you think it will work?

Prince Charles Is The Face Of Wool And Woolly Thoughts: Photos

WHO better than the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, to promote the caking for wool and, by association, woolly thinking? Charles, the Woolly Tampon, was chatting to woman in Centenary Square, Bradford, (what did he says to her?) and then observing a portrait of himself created in wool, presented to him by Frank Langrish, Chairman of the British Wool Marketing Board. It’s hard to think of a more suitable substance with which to represent Charles.

Can you pain with green jet fuel?

The Death Of Kate Middleton Is A Sorry Tale (Photos)

KATE Middleton is behind the wheel of a blue Audi. To her side is an armed protection officer. This allows the Daily Express to talk about Princess Katherine’s death. The default position is to feel sorry for Kate. She’s the poor commoner tossed to the Windsor-Munsters. Her life will never be her own. Sure, she gets to be Queen and have tribes of people hang on her every word, but can she shop for knickers in privacy, go to the gym or throw up in her handbag in Faliraki.

The Express delivers the sombre news:

Since her engagement, Kate, 28, is entitled to protection at taxpayers’ expense and she now faces a lifetime of having a detective shadowing her every move.
