You've got to hand it to Prince Charles, as soon as he makes a gaff it isn't long before he shows the UK that he still has his finger on the pulse and reconnects with us, his subjects. Today it was announced that he and Camilla would acknowledge sin during their upcoming wedding
fiasco ceremony. The sinful among us are overjoyed that our betters are also capable of the occasional evil deed. And the happy couple don't stop there. Check out this excerpt from their vows:
"We acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we, from time to time, most grievously have committed, by thought, word and deed, against thy Divine Majesty, provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us"
We don't know if we could be so noble as to forgive any supernatural force that gave us a damn good smiting. Perhaps that's the real difference between us ordinary sorts and those born to rule.
That and the ability to sell postcards.
We admit that we thought the wedding was going to be a dull affair, but that was before The Sun started smuggling (fake) bombs into Windsor Castle. If the idiots who forget to put the news into their newspaper each and every day can pull off a gunpowder plot then there's still hope that the whole thing will end in fireworks.
Aptly there will also be a reading from the Book of Revelation.
