You’ll really want to know this – the queen has just updated the curtsy order. “Blood princesses” come first, so if William isn’t there Kate has to curtsy to Anne, Alexandra, and even Beatrice and Eugenie!!! What is the world coming to, I hear you ask. But all is not lost – Sophie has to curtsy to Kate, even if William isn’t there. So that’s ok. Word has it that Sophie was not amused when she had to curtsy to Camilla when the hem-dropping order was last amended.
Will be interesting to see how low Bronagh goes when Charles and Camilla come to spend our money later this year. John Key of course will be down on both knees, kissing the ground on which they walk. I wouldn’t be surprised if he put in to the future king for a seat in the House of Lords as well, seeing that Tory backbenchers are now rebelling against reforming it. Can’t have Lord Cook of Thorndon being our only rep: Lord Key of Parnell has a nice ring to it. Be good for the CV too.
