2p or not 2p, that is the question

London - Royal Mint sources have denied it's all a bit of parody on the famous Hamlet soliloquy opening lines from Act III, Scene 1.

But the forging of a new 2p coin bearing La Middleton's face could provide a useful national distraction as EU leaders battle with the vicissitudes of the single alien currency.

The Shakespeare play tells the story of a throne usurped by murderers and a rightful Prince facing the multiple whammys of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption.

"We see Kate as the natural choice to grace a cheap bit of brass," Mint curator Reggie Bullionbags said today.

"Besides, there's zero chance she'll ever get her mug on those Bank of England gift vouchers they call the fifty quid notes - which is what all up-and-coming usurpers aspire to."

The proposal is based on the timeless collector appeal of a new slut on currency issues, something that numismatists insist would see global copper prices soar and take the heat off troubled gold markets.

But a constitutional expert warned today the proposal 'hasn't a hope in hell' of succeeding - much like Prince William's own throne ambitions.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
