In an unusual move Buckingham Palace has banned the UK from adding Prince Philip to any dead pools around the country.
Following his recent appearance at the Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan, where he looked like he needed a decent taxidermist rather than a doctor, dead pool members up and down the country who drew Prince Philip have been rubbing their hands with glee.
The unprecedented move follows speculation that the elderly Royal may actually be already dead and was merely propped up in the carriage for the royal celebrations. Adding fuel to this rumour is the fact that other Royals are not appearing in public with him as the contrast between the barely living and the dead would give the game away.
It is believed that banning dead pools from introducing Prince Philip in future may coincide with a massive bet placed by "The TSB and RBS Group" recently stating the actual date of the Princes death. Coincidentally, the Queens diary has been cleared for the same date.
