Tally Ho

November 16, 2010

The British are so fucking strange.

Kate Middleton will be the first commoner to marry an heir presumptive to the throne in more than 350 years, since Anne Hyde wed the Duke of York, later James II, in 1660.

    You can have celebrity obsession or royalty, you can’t have both. It’s idiotic.

    Royalty is much more interesting, I think. And on the substance, I’d think in this context you’d need to mention that King Edward VIII was forced to abdicate because he wanted to marry commoner (and American divorcee) Wallis Simpson. This was in the 1930s.

    Somewhere related to this is a honeymoon joke with the punchline of, “The British are coming,” but I’m not going near it.
