Sleaford Mods named as Princess Charlotte’s godparents

NOTTINGHAM post-punk duo Sleaford Mods have expressed surprise and joy at becoming godparents to Princess Charlotte.

The angry former dole claimants’ unexpected honour was announced at yesterday’s royal christening, where it had been assumed that the role of godparent would be assigned to Pippa Middleton.

It is believed that the Cambridges want Charlotte to stay grounded via shouty rapping and weekend trips to hard Midlands pubs.

Sleaford Mods singer Jason Williamson said: “Naturally we are delighted. We only got into the music industry as a means of raising our social status and hopefully meeting some people who had been to good schools.

“It appears this has paid off in spades.

“At the post-christening drinks we enjoyed a lengthy chat with William and Kate – who is even more radiant in the flesh – and discussed how we would hide their daughter in our smelly studio in the event of any revolution.

“You should have seen the food they had there. Lovely bits of fresh salmon and fish eggs on these little toast things. Not a coronation chicken sandwich in sight.

“We felt so humbled just to be in that room, it was like a dream.”
