Sloping Off

by | 19th, December 2006


On the face of it this is no small thing. Prince William and Kate Middleton, the gel-friend, are making ready to elope, jetting off to be married.

What man can blame Wills for escaping the pomp and pageantry of the State occasion? What woman can not feel for Kate, deprived of her dream fairytale wedding?

And so we read on. We learn that Wills and Kate have not yet gone anywhere. But they plan to go skiing. No, not to the Scottish Highlands, honeymooning after the romantic Gretna Green wedding. They are heading to the Swiss Alps.

Can you get married in the Swiss Alps? Do the famously careful Swiss allow such things? What of the insurance? Are the witnesses to this great occasion going to be two pretty cows, a ski instructor called Wolfgang and members of Psycho Steve’s Stag Do On Tour?

We know not. And we implore the lovely couple to think again. Take time out. Get away from it all. Have a holiday.

And look out for snowboarders…
