Domestic Trivia


MrsM
Do you think that the Duchess of Cambridge
has to curtsey to the Countess of Wessex?

MrM
I don't know.

MrsM
What about the Duchess of Cornwall
Does she have to curtsey to her?

MrM
I'm not an expert on this.

MrsM
What about the Princess Royal?

MrM
Why is this bothering you?

MrsM
And Queen Sofia of Spain...
Does she have to curtsey to her?

MrM
Well, not if they meet in Waitrose.

MrsM gives up.

  7. Oh dear, please stop. I have repressed my revolutionary - sorry, Republican - tendencies for the duration of the wedding, and they don't need further encouragement!
