The British Royal family have decided that enough is enough, and they are to move to Washington DC in America.

According to the Palace staff the Americans love the Royal family much more than the British. This was evident from the recent royal wedding between William and Kate.

"Nearly two billion people watched the Royal Wedding on television," said Palace insider, Ian Cider. "About a quarter of them were in America. By contrast, less than a tenth were British."

In addition, talking to people on the street, in America they went wild for Wills and Crazy for Kate. In Britain, the general response to the Royal Wedding was apathy, hostility or indifference.

"I'm quite happy they're going," said one random politician stopped on Downing Street. "The interfering old bat is a drain on resources."

In the UK, the Royal Family are paid for by tax payers, but although the people of the USA would be overjoyed to see the Royals on their doorstep, they don't want to pay for them. For this reason, the Royals will be kept in the manner to which they have become accustomed they will be getting their own television programmes.

Travel With Liz will follow the queen around the world as she visits the commonwealth where she will give reviews of the places where she stays. Charles is getting his own gardening program, in which he champions Organic farming called Charles and the Oak Tree. Kate And Wills The First Chapter is a fly on the wall documentary following Kate and William as they venture into their first year of marriage. Prince Harry will be sponging off his parents.

"I'm really looking forward to having the Royal Family in the USA," said Sarah Ferguson. "It'll be nice to hook up Andy again."
