How we know the Queen isn't Jewish

November 24, 2016 22:59

Front page of the Sunday Times yesterday and me and mine are rolling on the floor laughing.
The story? That despite it's being less than 100 days until (gasp!) the Royal Wedding, neither the Queen nor Prince Philip has yet found it necessary to meet Kate Middleton's parents.
You couldn't make it up, really. I mean, I know they're the grandparents rather than the parents, but after all, William and Waitey Katie have been an item for eight years, and in all that time Mrs Windsor hasn't managed to blink a tiara in Carol Middleton's direction. Extraordinary.
I understand that in simchah-making circles there's something called FLOPS: flowers, limo, orchestra, photographer, and either sheitel or souvenirs. Wouldn't we all have loved to be a fly on the wall when the Middletons and the Royals got together to discuss FLOPS?
