So gay rugby player Gareth Thomas has been invited to the royal nuptuals of Prince William and Catherine Middleton (we thought he was marrying someone called Kate!) No news so far on who he’s taking, though it should be noted we have some very shiny shoes and would never turn up to a wedding in a kilt (though we’re always very delighted when other people – and by people, we mean ‘men’ – do).
Also among the guests are, apparently, David Beckham and Lady Victoria, Elton John, Kanye West. And before everyone starts off again on the ‘snub’ to the Obamas: this is not a state occasion therefore etiquette does not allow the inviting of foreign dignitaries that one has never even met before… Wondering how we know about royal etiquette? Ever heard of the case of the footmen in the bath? Well, it was all completely innocent.
So, there's going to be a backroom at the Royal Wedding!,
