Shadowy puppet monarch Elizabeth Windsor is in hiding

Windsor - (Order of the Gutter): Harbinger of death and totem of volcanic fiascos Comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher, source of the annual 16-26 April Lyrid meteor shower, has been spotted hovering menacingly over Windsor Castle's St George's Chapel.

The 14th century royal peculiar is the last resting place of the English patron saint who famously slew the dragon on 23 April.

Comet Thatcher's appearance straddling the skies above the King George VI Memorial Chapel (North Knave Aisle) has sent tremors throughout the ancient monarchial fort.

Royal astronomers confirmed today the comet is named after one of the UK ex-Prime Monster's stargazing relatives and that its point of origin in the zodiac lies in the shadowy borders between the celestial constellations of Lyra - the Liar - and Draco - the Dragon.

Last year Queen Elizabeth's loyal Hellfire Club sponsors were apoplectic amid fears the emergence of the St George's Day mushroom on a Buckingham Palace lawn was a dire omen about the ageing ocotgenarian nonentity's health.

Some of their fears were later confirmed when the fungus was identified as the legendary Destroying Angel.

Internet bookies Aintgottaprayer.con are going even money on the Hellfire Club's puppet monarch finally croaking it this Friday, St George's Day.

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