Following the royals decision to freeze their pay for a year, the Queen has taken the unusual step of ordering her brood to get on their bikes to put bread on t'table.
HRH has even taken a temporary position herself with the help of Max Clifford, PR magician to the stars.
After a late night brain storming session over a bottle of single malt and three packs of samosa type nibbles for a fiver from the local Co-op, the British monarch has plumped for a position that she feels suits her right down to the ground.
The Pantomime Dame is traditionally a role for ageing comedy actors like John Travolta or David Hasselhoff, but booking agents have been falling over themselves to land the Queen in one of their parts, the lucky winner will be Aladdin at the Old Vic, a part made famous by Sir Ian McKellan.

Other Royals have decided to go this route as well, so we can all look forward to Prince Philip and his Son Charles as the ugly sisters at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, Prince Andrew as the Woodsman in Snow White at the Alban Arena in St Albans and Prince Michael of Kent will be a Pantomime horse while his wife, the Princess Michael of Kent will be a horses arse.
