Bonny Prince Harry, currently standing in as Caretaker King due to family illnesses and honeymoons, today defended the controversial decision to order the hanging of newspaper publisher Rupert Murdoch.
Harry took the keys to Buckingham Palace while his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth the 2nd, took time off to look after hubby Philip, who is leaking from the bladder like a sieve, and brother Wills is on extended second honeymoon with wifey Kate 'Catherine' Middleton, amid gossip of plans for a royal babby has so far proved fruitless.
It is thought Harry offered to step in as King for the day to deflect attention from recent photos released of him on holiday. The first task H' decided to sort out as King Dong was to order the execution of Dirty Digger Rupert Murdoch, publisher of disgraced Sunday rag News of the World, and daily red-top chip paper 'The Sun'.
Last week, The Sun aka 'the Currant Bun' printed pictures of Happy Harry Holidaying in Hell, sorry Vegas. Murdoch claimed on twitter the pictures were printed to highlight press freedom issues in the UK.
A statement from Buck House clarified the issue "The Leveson inquiry has so far cost the public purse a considerable amount of money with no successful outcome. We have decided to cut the red tape and made a decision in the public interest to give Rupy a taste of his own medicine".
A spokesman for the Murdoch family denied that Rupert was holed up in a foreign embassy asking for diplomatic immunity. The Ecudorian Embassy issued a statement saying they never disclosed information about their guests, and denied taking in a batch of Australians as a ploy to take over from Earls Court as the number one tourist area for travellers from Oz.
