THE Royal family does not have to try as hard as ordinary people to be considered funny, it has been claimed.
“Oh Charles, you are such a one”
Britons are increasingly angry about the double standards applied to the Windsor family, for whom the most minor gaffe or quip is a source of side-splitting hilarity.
Office worker Donna Sheridan said: When Prince Harry was giving a speech and his notes blew away everyone laughed their heads off. But when I dropped some photocopier paper yesterday there wasnt so much as a titter.
Then I saw Prince Charles visiting a flower show where it was raining and when he said Good weather for ducks! everyone fell about laughing like the audience at a Steve Martin gig.
So when it rained this morning I said Good weather for ducks! too, but my boss just went Mmn.
“I’ve also tried a hair net in a factory, making mildly xenophobic comments and playing croquet, none of which raised the faintest smile.
Frankly Im sick of there being one amusingness rule for the Royal family and another for the rest of us. I think we should shoot them and become a republic.
Teacher Stephen Malley said: Professional comedians like Jack Dee spend years fine-tuning their act, then Kate Middleton comes along and everyone pisses themselves if she pretends to flirt with a pensioner.
Also if you look closely, some people are laughing but their eyes are dead. Because Prince William playing rounders isnt really the funniest thing theyve ever seen.
