All Greek To Us

‘THE papers are still trying to digest the thought that, had the intruder been a proper terrorist, Prince Edward could be king today.

‘God save our gracious Queen…’

The Sun has a mock-up picture of Eddie in his coronation outfit, while the Mirror imagines what the reign of King Edward IX would be like.

We will not go down that route, but suffice it to say that stories like the one on the front page of the Express would likely be a thing of the past.

It claims that only an eleventh-hour intervention prevented highly sensitive pictures being published of ‘an extremely senior Royal’ caught on camera by KGB spies.

The pictures were contained in a dossier of Cold War espionage operations and were set to be revealed to the world when Russian secret services swooped on a house in Moscow.

‘The dossier allegedly contained private pictures of a senior member of the family before and after his marriage,’ the Express says.

‘Some of the pictures concern the activities of the Thursday Club, a boisterous group to which he belonged.

‘It met for boozy lunches in London’s Soho with attractive young women often attending.’

There’s nothing like a good souvlaki washed down by ouzo, is there?
