As probably the only family in Britain (or so it would seem) who did not pay any attention to the Royal Wedding, I realise I am on shaky ground in commenting on the whole affair, but today's whinge by the low-level former Royal Sarah Ferguson about not getting an invite did grab my attention.
The Duchess of York has told US talk show host Oprah Winfrey that not receiving an invitation to the royal wedding was "difficult".
"I wanted to be there with my girls," the former royal said.
The woman concedes that being caught out flogging 'an audience with' her grimy ex-husband for half a million quid a pop might be the reason for the snub (d'ya think?):
The duchess was caught on video last year offering to sell access to Prince Andrew for £500,000 ($818,000).
"I felt that I ostracized myself by my behaviour, by the past, by living with all the regrets of my mistakes," she said.
but she still thinks it would've been nice to have joined the party. She says:
"It was so difficult... because I wanted to be there with my girls and to - and to be getting them dressed and to go as a family," the Queen's former daughter-in-law said in the interview taped on 6 May and due to air on Wednesday.
Ah. 'Getting them dressed'. What she means, of course, is that if only that bloody old baggage the Queen hadn't been so sour as to ban her from the nuptials, THIS wouldn't have happened:
Oh, ah, sorry, no, I meant this...
