image for Veil debate: Queen insists Philip takes cover
"He's in there somewhere, Ma'am"

London - (Associated Mess): The Queen has joined the controversial debate about veil wearing in the UK by insisting that Prince Philip sets an example under the Equal Opportunities Act by donning the hijab.

Citing the need for diversity recognition within the House of Mountbatten, HM has commissioned a custom-made veil which effectively conceals all those parts of Prince Philip which ought to be shrouded from the public gaze on official State Occasions and royal visits abroad.

As a special value-added feature of interest to taxpayers are the unique anti-mosquito properties of the gown which will doubtlessly save ££££££s of expenditure from the Public Purse burden of the Civil List on those long, hot ten-week tropical cruises to British Dependencies like the Scilly Isles.

Designed by top UK couturier Hardly Amies, the Mountbatten hijab will also be retailed at Hysterical Royal Palaces gift shops priced £100 a pop.
