Kate and William and chopped liver

The wait is over for Waity Katie. A big Mazel Tov to Prince William and his new princess Kate Middleton.

The natural question now is whether the Royal Wedding of the Century (my copyright) will have any impact on the Jewish world.

Which Jewish celebs will be invited? Will Lord Sacks be there and will he be eating Hermolis or Tony Paige? When are they going to have a L’Chaim? Will she be heading to Hatton Garden for a diamond ring?

To clear a few things up, I’ve had a look in our archives from the other Royal Wedding of the Century – Charles and Di, in 1981.

Turns out the then Chief Rabbi Jakobovits was not invited. The JC explained: “Apart from the fact that the wedding was not officially a state occasion, the invitations were not issued on a community basis…those senior clergy who were invited were all Christian clergy, who participated in the marriage service”.

Ahh. But apparently he did still send a letter to the royal couple wishing them mazel tov.

Other JC readers also found ways to send their congratulations. Make-up artist Barbara Daly from Leeds “made up Lady Diana” while one restaurant apparently sent the Princess of Wales “a gallon of borscht”.

The Wagman family of East Finchley even shlepped up to St Paul’s Cathedral for the occasion with her husband and two kids, to hold up a large “mazeltov Chas and Di” sign decorated with the Israeli flag. The JC added: “The Wagmans believe that the Prince of Wales smiled when he saw.”

And best of all, for what royal wedding would be complete with out this? A New York deli even made a chopped liver cake in honour of the occasion.

When asked why they chose such an unconventional tribute, they said: “What else? We’re a Jewish delicatessen!”

Can JC readers look forward to hearing from which deli Kate Middleton buys her chopped liver?

Or maybe she has a distant relative - 5 times removed - that makes her own? Would love a royal recipe!

Have any Jewish readers purchased paper plates from Kate's parent's mail order business?

Maybe they've used the paper plates to serve chopped liver?

This is the link for Kate's parents business http://www.partypieces.co.uk/

Sadly no Barmitzvah/Batmitzvah plates? Are they boycotting us?

Surely they know that the Kosher community are big buyers of disposable tablewear?

While it is only natural that all British citizens rejoice at good news, the Jewish community should remember with whom they are rejoicing.

I refer readers to my earlier post:

"King George VI Tightened the Noose Around German Jewry’s Neck' located at:

http://www.thejc.com/blogpost/king-george-vi-tightened-noose-around-germ...

Just one quote there from the Sunday Times of January 2005 says:
" In fact, so many of Philip’s relatives had Nazi links that when he married Princess Elizabeth he was severely limited on the guests he could invite."

And from the BBC Online from that same year:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/4170083.stm

"Harry says sorry for Nazi costume.
Prince Harry has apologised for wearing a swastika armband to a friend's fancy dress party."

Do Partypieces sell fancy dress costumes?

I'm sure people are well aware of the more sh*tty aspects of British history and don't need reminding of it at every opportunity.

Congrats Will & Kate, they make a nice couple.

We did indeed use Partypieces for our son's first birthday! Didn't know that company's connection at the time!

Fantastic!

Could you share with JC readers what you served on the plates? Any photos?

And.... was it Kosher?

No Kahina it wasn't kosher - as we're not Jewish!
