Bishop Pete Broadbent Suspended Over Kate Middleton (Literally)

PETE Broadbent, Bishop of Willesden (who knew?), has been suspended for likening Prince William and Kate Middleton to “shallow celebrities” (rather than deeper ones like Princess Diana) and predicting their marriage will last seven years.

He also said The Royal Family were “philanders” and called Prince Charles and Diana “Big Ears and the Porcelain Doll”.

Just how wrong can one man be..?

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.

Royal Wedding Comes Too Soon For Abingdon Bun Tossers

KATE Middleton and Prince William’s bun tossing event at Abingdon County Hall Museum, Oxfordshire, hangs in the balance. The BBC has the headline of the day:

Royal wedding bun throw in Abingdon in doubt

Building work means that civic leaders might not get on to the roof to throw 4,000 cakes and buns.

Says Nigel Warner, clerk of Abingdon Town Council:

“It is something we cannot guarantee due to the repairs. The building is having a top to tail restoration with a new roof, new electrics, so at some points next year it will be very hard to get to the roof to throw the buns.”

What bout custard pies? Or fire extinguishers? Cometh the hour…

But this is not to say that the Middletons are not full of idea as to how best the thing should go. The family’s The Partypieces website, owned by Michael and Carole Middleton parent’s of Kate Middleton, has some great offers, especially on the non-eco plastic items and killer Chinese lanterns.

But there is an “eco” section, on which you can find tips on how to create a do greener than Prince Charles’ Aston Martin and Air Miles stamps:

How about getting creative and with the help of your child making your own – this will give the party a personal touch and is a fun way of using pictures from old cards or even leaves and flowers from the garden. But without a doubt the greenest invitation of all is one that saves on stamps and trees.

Or:

…how about a paper tablecloth, suitable for recycling, or an old sheet that can be washed –

And granny?

And what about hosting a gardening party ?

A few essentials for your hen party to do list – something to make your hen party stand out from the crowd-you don’t have to go full fancy dress but at least get everyone to wear head boppers, pink leis or feather boas.

Kate Middleton And Prince William To Honeymoon At Taj Mahal

IF Kate Middleton was hoping to get away from comparisons to Princess Diana she’d best launch a pro-landmine charity fast.

Each and every one us will be deeply affected by the looming royal marriage… – Peter Oborne, Daily Telegraph

Without British Airways there would be no Kate Middleton, so it seems proper payback that the national carrier will be a leading beneficiary of her marriage to Prince William. Untold thousands will fly with BA to London from across the globe for the holy wedlock of Prince William and the lovely Kate some time next spring or summer. And many, many more will fly out of Britain to escape it. – Matthew Norman, Independent

For Kate and William, their engagement has profound national significance. They will help form our collective imagination. They are now part of what we are as a nation, how we define ourselves as individuals. – Peter Oborne, Daily Telegraph

As somebody whose business it is to study the human heart… – Bel Mooney, Daily Mail

Kate Middleton Is No Princess Diana: She Loves Landmines

PRINCE William and Kate Middleton are engaged and an industry is born. Will they be William and Kate? Willate? Killiam? Kills? Is Kate the new Diana. Or is she her own woman, one who loves landmines – just loves them? There is much to decide as the brand is developed.

But in the meanwhile, what say the papers? Which paper is the most patriotic? Let’s see:

Independent: leads with the economic ruin of Ireland

You can hide and tidy to ignore it but the wedding chatter – the debate between flag waving Royalists and outraged Republicans – will not go away.

PRINCE William and Kate Middleton’s impending marriage is summed up by Royal biographer Penny Junor. You see, Kate is not like Princess Diana, who currently lives on the fabled Sixth Floor of London’s Harvey Nicole department store.

Sure, Kate is wearing Diana’s ring and the papers are full of pictures and words comparing her to the celebrity princess. But… Well, here’s Penny making sense of it all:

Charles’s marriage to Diana in 1981 was widely viewed as a fairytale. This wedding will be the genuine article

KATE Middleton and Prince William are to be married and the papers and news media are falling over themselves to cobble together the story to fill the need. But it’s hats off to the Daily Express for pressing f9 on the keyboard and conjuring up:

WHEN Kate Middleton marries into the Royal Family she will be following in Diana’s footsteps but does she have the potential to be the next People’s Princess?

God we hope so. But the Express must be hoping more than all of us. Fingers crossed for that paper’s survival that Katie doesn’t put on her seatbelt, has extra-marital sex and sticks her hair in a bun and her **** in a toaster.
