Pop Goes The Weasel

‘IS it really 16 years since It’s A Royal Knockout hit our screens?

It’s A Royal Knockout II

True, in the intervening decade and a half we have been royally entertained by the soap opera that is the House of Windsor, but nothing has ever touched the heights of that moment in June 1987 when Prince Edward donned his Elizabethan costume and strode out into a cold muddy field in Staffordshire.

Nothing that is until now. Now Anorak Productions presents It’s A Royal Knockout II (This Time It’s Personal).

In the blue-blooded corner, we present Prince William (or Prince William Philip Arthur Louis to give him his full title); in the red-blooded corner, we present Paul Burrell (otherwise known as The Weasel).

A Clarence House spokesman confirms to the Sun that the bout will take place.

“William has said that he is prepared to meet Burrell and we will be proceeding on that basis,” he said.

The winner of the no-holds-barred contest will automatically become second in line to the throne with a unification bout with Prince Charles likely in the spring.’
