Buckingham Palace has declared its support for the Prince of Wales as the next king.
The revelation came after the Palace's exceptionally festive staff Christmas lunch and follows another mischievous he's-a-bit-potty story in the Daily Mail. While cynics note that every time Diana made similar statements, a rush of fat, privileged toffs rushed out to label her bonkers, the Palace confined itself to steady on.
"It'sssssch him, right, mate," 'said' Sir Hamish Snobworth, MACA Damia Nt., Palace spokesperson. "It's the way it worksch. Everybody from the footmen to the George V thought Edward the VIII would be a total cack up and he got his chance anyway. If everybody deserves a prize then every bloody body deserves an f-ing prize, yeah?"
In a subsequent follow up call the next day, Snobworth further expounded on his statement. "The line of succession is an important tradition which must be respected. Even so, let us recall the Monarchy is known for modernizing cautiously but consistently, as I believe our embrace of electricity well demonstrates."
