William and Kate prevent imminent war with Bhutan

BRITAIN and Bhutan have moved back from the brink of war after a visit by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The two countries were poised to begin a bloody conflict at midnight, but a fragile peace has been declared after Kate arrived in the tiny mountainous country wearing a lovely purple dress.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “ Without the Royal Family Britain would be in a constant state of war.

“These visits help other nations realise that Britain is both immensely powerful and incredibly lovely.”

The spokesman added: “The Duchess’s wardrobe is the most vital element of Britain’s defence capability.”

After their visit to Bhutan, the Royal couple will prevent a war with the dangerous Caribbean island of Mustique.
