It is nice to see Liz back on form and making fun of some drug addled geriatrics:
(Broken link to news item about rock music at the palace)
Had they bothered to do their homework, these saps would know that she is an authority
on rock music, and has a vast collection of CD’s, and a video of Jimi performing
the UK national anthem at a garden party in 1969 where he not only set fire to his
guitar, but also princess Anne’s hat. She has a particular fondness for The Who,
and I well remember the occasion that she burst into song, doing a passable impersonation
of Mr Daltrey, at a reception for the Slovakian ambassador, “I’m not trying to cause
a big sensation, just talking ‘bout my loyal nation”. The ambassador told me that
he was very impressed, and commended her decorum. King Harald of Norway’s party piece
is to re-enact John Belushi’s canteen scene from ‘Animal House’, whereas the activities
King Preah Baht Samdach Preah Norodom Sihanuk Varman of Cambodia are best left unmentioned
Philip leans more towards heavy metal and this is the reason for his padded room
at the palace. I wanted to make this clear, as rumours have been spread in the media
about strait jackets and such, all of which are quite unfair. He is as sharp and
sane now as he has ever been.
Philip called me to discuss choosing music for the wedding. For some odd reason,
this has been delegated to him. Not a wise decision I fear, it was only at the last
minute that his choice for the bridal music for Sarah Ferguson – Acid Queen – was
vetoed. I repeatedly tell him that I am not going, and it would be in everyone’s
best interests not to cause any more controversy, but he was very insistent. “If
it were left to Charles it would be the Three Degrees and fucking Cliff Richard”
he tells me, in a very peeved manner, “at the very least we are going to have some
Stones”. “Not ‘Bitch’”, I tell him quite sternly, “and if you value my advice at
all, then I would avoid ‘Under My Thumb’ and ‘19th Nervous Breakdown’ as well.”
Things are going to get out of hand, I fear. I have visions of Philip dressed as
Lemmy leading the guests in a conga along the ramparts of the castle, shouting “Oi,
you poxy peasants” at the general public, again.
Almost spoilt for choice with so many Stones tracks available that would suit the
occasion .. as a starter ...
'You Can't Always Get What You Want'
'Sympathy For The Devil'
‘Mothers Little Helper'
