PEOPLE who have just settled a sexual assault case are not welcome at jubilee celebrations. This is how Prince Andrew will mark the occasion:
Working out how to pay his mum back
The Queen bankrolled Prince Andrew to the tune of millions of pounds, but this was a loan, not a gift. As she waves to an adoring crowd from Buckingham Palace’s balcony, he’ll be watching the celebrations on telly while frantically selling off his dwindling assets in an effort to balance the books.
Avoiding Pizza Express
He knows this is going to be a field day for the press so he doesn’t want to make it any worse. Woking is of course off limits, but to play it safe Prince Andrew will maintain a generous distance from Pizza Express branches across the country. Instead he will order their pollo pancetta via Uber Eats under the pseudonym P Andrew.
There won’t be anything worth watching on the main channels, so Prince Andrew will kill some time by watching Dave instead. Repeats of vintage episodes of Have I Got News For You will be a welcome distraction from the contemporary hell he’s living in, and will hopefully have a slot mocking Charles’ organic biscuit empire. He’s meant to be the idiot of the family, after all.
Staying home and counting his blessings
Not being invited to your mum’s celebratory bash is pretty bad, but things could be worse. Prince Andrew will take this opportunity to reflect that at least he didn’t get banged up in jail like his old friend Jeffrey Epstein, and he’s still got his health unlike his old friend Jeffrey Epstein. That’s two whole blessings.
The four day bank holiday weekend when most of the celebrations will be held is at the beginning of June, so hopefully the weather will be nice and warm. Andrew will spend the day doing a little light exercise to work up a sweat, as he’s now free to stop claiming he isn’t able to.
