Stephen Fry and Dame Emma Thompson named among national treasures to be buried with Queen

NATIONAL treasures including Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson have received the ultimate honour of being chosen to be buried with the Queen.

Following the reading of the Queen’s will, in which she left £15.2 billion in assets to her son tax-free, her choice of Britain’s national treasures have been informed of their imminent entombment.

Dame Emma said: “I can’t say how proud I will feel on Monday to wave at the public one final time as I descend the steps to the vault where I and my fellow treasures will spend eternity.

“To be chosen by the Queen, alongside Delia Smith, Sam Allardyce, Brian May and Kate Moss, among others, is the pinnacle of all our achievements.

“I’m told we will have 48 hours together in total darkness to celebrate the monarch we are privileged to lie beside before our air runs out. What a glorious demise.”

But broadcaster Louis Theroux, 52, said: “I honestly don’t think I deserve this and would very much like to turn it down. I don’t even qualify as a national treasure. Lots of people hate me.

“So thank you very much but no thanks, if I can say that. What’s that knocking? Oh Christ they’re at the door.”

Six entirely truthful statements the police might arrest you for making

WITH the police overreacting to the most minor anti-royal protests, it’s probably wise to watch what you say, citizen. Here are some things to avoid to be on the safe side.

‘The Daily Mail’s pictures of Prince George make me feel a bit ill’

If you’re not a granny, the official pictures of the youngest royals will make you feel fairly nauseous. Saying so will cause the police to do you for treason, when really it’s the Mail’s fault for creepy headlines like: ‘WHO’S ALL GROWN-UP NOW? BIG BOY GEORGE WEARS LONG TROUSERS!’

‘I’d shag Koo Stark in Star Wars

In spirit, this is hypothetically cheating on Prince Andrew’s model girlfriend from the 80s. An overzealous copper could easily find cuckolding Andrew disrespectful to the Royal Family, and you’ll have ample time to fantasise about deleted scenes from Star Wars as you do 12 years in HMP Wakefield.

‘I wouldn’t want to be one of Charles’ lackeys’

King Charles’ recent tetchy behaviour suggests being one of his servants is a f**king mare. You’d live in fear of being sacked for not getting the toothpaste perfectly dead-centre on his electric toothbrush. You traitor. You should be honoured to serve. Hopefully someone has reported you on 999.

‘I’m no fan of Meghan’s bullshit but Piers Morgan can f**k right off’

Morgan’s vendetta against a dippy Californian actress with a shite podcast smacks of ‘psycho ex-boyfriend the police would interview first’. Unfortunately he and the press have convinced millions of people she is evil. Meghan-sympathisers could be rounded up under the Riot Act. They might get a few cuts and bruises resisting arrest. Shame.

‘I hate yappy little dogs’ 

The Queen loved corgis, so three vanloads of riot police in space marine body armour could boot your door in at 4am. You’ll be charged with breach of the peace, because the cops have thus far shown no sign of caring how ridiculous the charges are. 

‘I’ve never really liked Purple Rain’

Despite being his most famous hit, some music listeners find Purple Rain by Prince cheesy and overproduced in comparison to more mature tracks like Sign O’ The Times. It’s got bugger all to do with the Queen, but the fact that it’s by someone called Prince is probably enough for a particularly dense plod to give you a faceful of pepper spray.
