Render Unto Caesar

by | 10th, November 2003

‘WHERE was Prince Edward when his wife Sophie complained of agonising stomach pains on Saturday evening and was rushed to hospital for an emergency Caesarean section?

‘It’s me that should be sectioned’

Shame on you who suggested that he might have been in bed with one of his servants!

According to the Mail, the hard-working prince was actually on an official holiday, sorry, visit to Mauritius when the call came through.

He quickly finished his official pina colada, rolled off his official sun lounger and jumped onto the first available plane to Paris.

There he no doubt enjoyed an official slap-up meal at Maxims before being flown back to Farnborough on the Queen’s Flight, by which time of course he had missed all the action.

“I am rather shocked and delighted at the news, obviously sorry that I was not able to be a part of it,” he told the paper.

“I have seen Sophie, she is doing well – she has also had a bit of a fraught time of it.”

Also? Come on, Eddie. Surviving a major medical emergency, in which (the Sun says) your wife could easily have died, is nothing compared with having to cut short a trip to Mauritius.

But you can at least console yourself that you have official trips to the Maldives, Tenerife and the Bahamas coming up so you will have plenty of time to recover from this trauma.’
