Here we go.

Yes, let’s get poetic. The royal family of the United Kingdom? They make a great oil painting and keep the rest of the world civil. Well, maybe not so much anymore, but still, the only thing left near to having good manners. Well, forget the recent whiners.

Let’s say they look great on the balcony. Okay? And the women are hat crazy.

Where else can you find that kind of pageantry? Men in red jackets and faux bear hats riding horses in parades? The Queen addressing Parliament wearing that carpet of an ermine cape.

And their weddings? They give Martha Stewart’s wedding book some competition. The royal bakers appear to start baking the wedding cake when the engagement is announced. Crunch.

The divorces? Not so good. Pass the cabbages. Kate Middleton comes from a family that has happy smiles. The Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t look for a camera, locates it, and then pops a smile.

Others? Not so sincere. Even though there's no business like show business, she wasn’t smiling when she was low. Instead, she griped all the way to Montecito, her prince's head bent and following behind, chirping about protecting his family.

Families in Pakistan need protection, not heirs of the royal family.

Even Shakespeare never thought of that one. He came close with King Lear. The Beatles? No. Maybe George Bernard Shaw? Chekhov? "...more clouds of grey. Than any Russian play could guarantee."
