“It’s my turn to wear the blue sash”.

I see that the old royal dressing up box was in great demand for last Saturday’s Trooping the Colour, although Katie has not yet got around to wearing a ’comic opera’ uniform, unlike Anne (“If it doesn’t eat hay and farts she isn’t interested” … her dad) or a Bonnie Prince Charlie Highland outfit like Edward (Royal Marines-Failed !), the so called Earl of Wessex. For some reason Randy Andy was in civilian garb, perhaps nothing in the box fits him, or maybe his mum won’t let him play anymore for being such a naughty boy.
Willy still can’t make up his mind if he is in the RAF or the Irish Guards, but at least (well so far) he only wears one medal (Oh! .. and a big brooch) given to him by his gran, unlike his dad who seems to collect ‘gongs’ for doing bugger all: and as for the ‘ginger spare’, well he came dressed as a Horse Guard, although he is supposed to be a pilot in the Army Air Corps. The army may trust him with a horse, but surely not with an Apache Helicopter !
What a weird bloody lot the ‘royals’ are, living as they do in some fantasy world of fancy costumes, orders and decorations. Blimey ! … ’er Maj still hands out Orders of the British Empire.
Please remind me …
… When did we last have an Empire ?
