Buckingham Palace officials have intimated that the British Royal family has decided to emigrate to the U.S.A.

A source is quoted as saying that the family had a conference at Balmoral during one of their many holidays and have decided that as Britain's weather shows signs of being increasingly inclement, it would benefit all of the family to move somewhere warmer.

The Queen and Prince Philip are due to leave tomorrow, followed in the next few days by the remaining family members. It is unclear how the monarch will fulfil her constitutional duties while sunning herself in Florida where she has expressed a wish to settle, and further, there are concerns that Prince Charles' six letters per day, which he personally writes to government ministers, will cost an absolute mint in postal charges.

The PM is quoted as saying he is confident that very little will change, royal family tax breaks will remain, their income from the Duchies will continue and he also points out that Canada manages with a constitutional monarch who resides thousands of miles away, and so does Australia.

When asked to comment by a reporter Prince Philip was heard to say "Stuff the lot of you! We're off" Meanwhile Republic, the Campaign for an elected Head of State, say their campaign will continue unabated since the monarchy is still entrenched in Britain's political system to its detriment.

The British Monarchist League had mixed feelings about the Royal Family leaving British shores but are happy that those Americans who have no trouble spitting on their own constitution by sucking up to British Royalty may start a campaign to have a monarchy in the U.S.

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