We Are Not Amused
One of the oddest things about last week's royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton was the snubbing of Prince Andrew's ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson. We realize that "Fergie" committed an almost unforgivable royal faux pas a few months ago when she was caught trying to sell an audience with Prince Andrew for money, but still, she is the mother of the two princesses, Beatrice and Eugenie, who are 5th and 6th in line for the throne. Fergie might have shown poor judgment in a business deal, but to not invite her to the wedding seems an even lower-class, below the belt move. You'd think the Queen and that old bitch she's married to, Prince Phillip, would have learned something when they treated one of their other daughters-in-law, Diana, so poorly.
In a recent taping for an upcoming episode of "Oprah", Fergie told Oprah that she was very hurt by the snub, but that she and Prince Andrew, who are still good friends, spoke several times on the day of the wedding, and Andrew attempted to soothe Fergie's hurt feelings. Something tells us that when the Queen and that old dinosaur she's married to are finally gone, the monarchy will be a very different institution. We can only hope.
In other royal news, Prince Charles' wife, Camilla, visited Charleston House yesterday, an art gallery in Sussex, where she was confronted with the painting of a male nude. Observers noted that while Camilla kept her eyes from the painting, nevertheless, she beamed with a wide grin as she passed the painting. We know what she was thinking: "Oh my, so that's what a real penis looks like. I wonder where I could get me one of those? Holla!"
