Triumph Of Wills

by | 1st, April 2004

‘ALL papers like to run a hoax story on April Fool’s day, but the usual form is to slip it inconspicuously into one of the news pages.

‘Hi, my name’s Wills. I’m a groovy kind of polo-playing kind of guy…’

Not the Sun, however. With typical audacity, theirs is plastered over the front page, with more on pages 2,3,4 and 5.

“FINALLY… Wills gets a girl,” it trumpets and, sure enough, there’s a picture of the dashing young prince in the company of a genuine 100-per-cent anatomically-correct female human being.

Of course, it could all be faked with computers, so they’ve even gone to the trouble of getting Sun Royal Photographer Arthur Edwards to pen a few words in order to lend an air of authenticity.

“When I photographed Prince William on the slopes of Klosters, I knew there was something unusual about him,” teases the veteran smudger. “We now know why.”

Yes, that’s right – we’ve got a heterosexual heir to the throne, and the future of the House of Windsor is safe.

And even if none of it is true, it’s a dream that we can all enjoy on a lovely spring morning.’
