Royal Round-Up: 9th April

Hello everybody – I’m back!

Firstly, I would like to say a massive thank you for all the lovely and supportive comments about me taking a short break from the blog; it was really touching to read and I really appreciated everybody’s kind words – it meant a lot ❤️

With that said, I was really missing the blog and taking the piss out of Dumb and Dumber— so without further ado, let’s review the backlog of royal news that has occurred over the last few weeks!

Meghan and Harry move to LA

Well we all saw that one coming a mile off, didn’t we?

Yep – despite Meghan’s fans still vehemently insisting that she is not at all predictable, even though all of our own predictions were accurate in regards to her movements, Meghan did the most predictable thing yet and moved back to LA with Harry and Archie— where she is no doubt suffering some kind of illusion of grandeur that she will finally be taken seriously on Californian soil.

However, there is just one minor issue with the move (or several, depending on how you look at it)— most people still don’t actually like Meghan Markle— married to a prince or not.

The Californians were very welcoming as Harry and Meghan arrived in LA

It was said that the move came due to the fact that the Canadian/US border was closing and Meghan and Harry were “panicking” that they would be “stuck” in Canada due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Alright, calm down love— it’s Vancouver, not Vietnam

Unable to possibly fathom being stranded in the terrifying war-zone that is Western Canada, and growing increasingly pissed off that the Canadian government told them to go fuck themselves when they asked them to pay for their security, Meghan promptly moved her family from one rent-free accommodation to another, all the while complaining how “difficult” life had become.

“PAY for our own crap?!”

But things were about to get a whole lot worse….

Having flounced out of Canada in a huff and then having to fly commercial, of all things, into the USA, Harry and Meghan’s dreams of having the Americans pay for them were instead quickly quashed, when President Trump told them exactly the same thing Canada had:

Things were going to be a lot tougher than Meghan had originally thought. With no one to foot the bill for their security and the Sussexes really down to their last pennies in the bank (I mean, how far would £30 million really get them?), the dastardly duo had to come to terms with the worst case scenario that was now upon them…

Meghan tried to rev herself up a bit

Luckily for the both of them, Meghan already had something lined up…

Meghan lands her first Disney job

Hurrah! An acting job at last! Even if it was less “starring role in the next James Bond film” and more “narrating from behind an elephant’s arse.”

This one is sure to sweep the Oscars

Yes, Disney will forever be grateful that a failed-actress-turned-shit-royal-turned-back-into-barely-an-actress lent her voice to them for the narration of ‘Elephant’, the proceeds of which were apparently donated to the Elephants Without Borders charity, as, y’know, Meghan and Harry don’t really need the money, right? I mean, I’m sure Meghan didn’t pocket any for herself.

“Fuck elephants without borders, what about Sussexes Without Security?!”

When Meghan planned her return to Hollywood, I’m not so sure this is what she had in mind– narrating an elephant’s journey along the Zambezi River, where her face doesn’t feature in in at all.

“But how will the viewers get to see my ‘I’m-so-devastated-by-the-elephants-plight’ expression if I’m not in it?”

But being told this could only lead to bigger things for her, likely by somebody rather high up on the Sussex payroll merely stroking her ego, Meghan went along with her first charitable effort outside of the British Royal Family– and probably her last.

In all honesty, I love elephants; they’re majestic, incredibly cute— and I probably would’ve watched this docufilm if it wasn’t for Meghan’s hammy drawl. Yeah, thanks for ruining it, love.

They say elephants never forget, but I’m sure they’d rather forget this one.

“Yeah, you just keep that bitch away from us.”

Meghan will only work with the best

Which brings me nicely to my next point; rumour has it that Markle has reportedly told her agent that she finds a lot of the ‘acting offers that have come her way so far’ to be ‘beneath her’, and that she will only work with the ‘most talented and well-known’ directors in Hollywood.

Because you were just so talented and well-known before Harry, right?

It did make me laugh that she is even claiming that she has received a shit tonne of offers so far, given the fact that she is hardly Jennifer Aniston. She had a bit part on a cable show some years ago and that was the full extent of her ‘Hollywood’ career thus far (and ever). Grace Kelly, you are not, hun.

Apart from the ‘cold’ bit maybe

Yep, Meghan has even given her agent a (very short) list of directors she will work with (Weinstein, you might have made the cut, mate– check your emails when you’re out of the slammer); but despite wanting to be on the same level as the Natalie Portmans and Meryl Streeps of this world, Meghan has made it known that she will consider Japanese commercials, because that’s where all the money is at… apparently.

Yes. She’ll be positively shitting cash.

At this point Meggy, I wouldn’t be too picky; you’ve got a team of security to pay for and a weave to be re-applied on the regular; beggars really cannot be choosers at this stage and you DID tell the taxpayers to go fuck ourselves back in January when you made your announcement you were leaving. Don’t start trying to garner sympathy now– you didn’t know which side your bread was buttered and now it’s melted.

Due to COVID-19, I don’t think many places are hiring at the moment, but just in case, I have listed some jobs below for yourself and Harry that are still likely to be going during a panemic:

Delivery Driver
While we’re all stuck indoors, online shopping is at an all-time high and Hermes could always use new drivers for their deliveries!

“Here’s your multipack of toilet paper, yah – wipe sparingly.”

Warehouse Worker
To follow on from the above– those boxes aren’t gonna pack themselves and warehouses definitely need the extra staff at the moment.

“I just don’t get why they’re not staying on the conveyor belt, yah. What am I doing wrong?”

Shop Assistant
No, not the clothing stores– but people gotta eat, so the supermarkets are still open!

“Wait, stop it, peasants – the boss said only two bottles of hand sanitizer per person!”

They don’t quite pay the millions that Harry and Meghan are after, but it’s a start, right? And in any case, dear old Duke of Sussex– the USA don’t usually let immigrants move over without having a job in place first and a method of paying their way, so better find something before your arse is hauled out by homeland security.

“But I really was looking for a job, yah – I swear!”

Prince Charles had coronavirus

Bloody hell, in the time it has taken me to write this, the man has completely recovered.

Yep, the ‘breaking news’ iPhone alert that stunned the nation a couple of weeks ago– the heir to the throne had tested positive for COVID-19 and was self-isolating in Scotland under NHS orders.

There is of course a chance that he didn’t test positive for shit and just wanted everybody to stay away from him for a couple of weeks– the wife included– but we can never be entirely sure.

There were of course concerns regarding whether or not Charles had come into contact with the Queen and the possibility of her being infected if so. Prince Charles, however, was less concerned— maybe it would finally be time for him to sit on the throne?

“No, please don’t touch one — You’ll be taking one’s germs that one has been saving for one’s mum.”

Luckily however, as with the royal family, Her Majesty informed her staff that she hadn’t seen her son for “fucking weeks” and retreated into self-isolation.

Which bring me nicely to my next point– Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, somehow tested negative for the virus.

How a married couple, who share a home and presumably a bed, can only have one half of it diagnosed with something as contagious as Coronavirus, I do not know. I get that these castles are bloody massive, but honestly, my mind is still rather confused.

“Probably because we haven’t even been in the same room for fucking years, let alone the same bed.”

Anyway– in order to reassure their grandfather, as they were unable to do so in person, the Cambridge kids sent handmade cards to him, wishing him well and a speedy recovery, which was a nice thought.

Prince George, especially, was keen to convey his best wishes to his granddad:

“…and take dad with you and chuck us the sovereign crown, while you’re at it.”

In any case, the heir apparent is now out of self-isolation and totally recovered– which leaves him more time to potter about the garden and pick the veggies for his Duchy range.

Those Duchy potatoes ain’t gonna pluck themselves

Harry and Meghan need a break

Yeah, and we need a break from hearing about you two fucking morons.

Apparently, so exerted from their last holiday, (which began in November and is still actually going), Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dumber have decided that they ‘need a break’ from… er…. well, whatever it is they do normally, and thought that there was no better time to do this than when a pandemic has effectively ground the planet to a halt.

Or rather… Meghan was still hastily trying to hatch plans to make as much money as possible, but was forced to keep her arse at home due to COVID-19.

“But it’s just the fucking flu Harry – what about my Hollywood career?!”

No, really– I do get it; it must be tough as shit having to put your life on hold due to a situation you cannot control, and in the interim, losing bucketloads of money (because the rest of the planet doesn’t know what that’s like at the moment, huh);– except for the fact that they have millions in the bank, live rent-free and willingly put themselves in this situation.

The poor darlings; I’m sure we’ve all lost a lot of sleep since they left the royal fold nine days ago, with the wondering and worrying over how they will pay for their security and how much money will be left. if any, to raise little Archibald. Never mind a deadly pandemic, there are more pressing issues at hand here:

“Coronavirus my ass – how are we going to pay for the private jet, you stupid ginger prick.”

The couple, now down to their last several million, have been hashing things out at their Malibu mansion (complete with swimming pool, hot tub and 30-bottle wine fridge); the pressure of Meghan’s rants about her husband not having a job were really getting to Harry– he was finally about to crack.

“Meghan give it a fucking rest, yah – I’m trying to Google what a CV is!”

After being given a bollocking from Baroness Dumb-arse, Harry took to the streets of LA, complete with CV in hand (once he’d worked out what it was) and went to see where this wondrous path would take him next.

Alright– realistically, he probably stopped for a pint and got another arse-kicking from the missus when he got home, but this time he was too sloshed to care.

“Oh, piss off Meg— do you have any idea how tiring it is applying in two shops for a job? One is positively knackered. Although that could also be from the six pints I had on the way home, too…”

Well I think I’ve covered off most of the big stories from the last few weeks– as ever, I’m sure there will be plenty more to report on in the coming week, pandemic or not.

In the meantime, stay safe, stay home and a very Happy Easter to those who celebrate it!

See you next week! 💋

  1. You’re the best laugh ever! Glad you’re back. Thx always and especially these days.

    1. Thank you my love! It’s so good to be back ❤️

      1. Thanks, I just had the best laugh in weeks. Stay well.

      2. Thank you my darling – so glad you enjoyed it! Stay safe also 💕

    2. So thrilled your back! You are seriously spot on once again. Markle and Tagalong Harry are so very deluded truly pathetisad.

  2. Hello Saffy and welcome back! Enjoyable read as always! So happy you re back! 🙏

    1. Ahh thank you my love – I really appreciate that ❤️

  3. Hurrah, you’re back XX

    1. It’s so good to be back! ❤️

  4. Seriously do you suppose we’ll ever find out the truth about the “Archie” person? Is there any hope that the tabloid will quit writing about them and we can have some peace?

    1. Archie’s existence is baffling to me— but now they’re gone, we’ll never know anything. I sincerely hope we get some peace and quiet soon!

      1. I sincerely hope we don’t! I enjoy your commentary on their antics too much!

      2. Saffy – peace from these two? Hazbean could very well be silent since that’s more this “thing”.. But Mega-mouth/Mega-phone cannot cope unless she is in the news somehow. The fact that Covid-19 has pretty much “Closed the planet” & knocked her off the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th positions has only made her even more jealous!! Can’t see her quietening down for a long time – say another 40yrs? Although she’s a smoker & a sunbather – so knock off 5yrs! Even from the grave Markle Madness would STILL be telling us WHAT to do! (We are averagely more intelligent than the Markle Moocow is I doubt her IQ goes beyond 100.)

        Oh well have a HAPPY EASTER to all who follow it, Top of the day to everyone, be safe, stay home, protect the 1st line workers – Doctors Nurses & other wonderful people who are risking their life to preserve ours – KKxx

  5. SO glad you’re back among us once again! How could we survive yet another mutated coronavirus without you!? Seriously, I don’t think we could. 😉 Stay safe and carry on!

    1. Thank you so much my lovely – always appreciate the support! We need a giggle to get through this! Stay safe as well ❤️

  6. So happy to have you back! I was going into Saffy withdrawals.

  7. Harry and Nugmeg better learn about ‘downsizing’ cause its coming at them fast.Hard as it maybe to believe you cannot live in a Malibu mansion if you only “had’ £30 million. Might be able to afford something like O.J. Simpson’s old house in Brentwood though. Malibu mansions are where successful show business people live not aspiring ones. I see bankruptcy and divorce in the Sussex’s future.

    1. Probably not fast enough though Scott!! I fear the Markle Debacle could go on for years

      1. And every downward lurch will be chronicled here on The Crowns of Britain for us to enjoy

  8. So happy you’re back! I was going into Saffy withdrawals.

  9. So happy you’re back!!! I was going into serious Saffy withdrawals.

    1. Thank you my love! ❤️

  10. So happy to have you back. Missed your fabulous blog. Don’t know how true it is, but heard through the grapevine the Disney film was already completed by an A-lister, but was redone for Megs. The A-lister was Meryl Streep. If true, really shows the amazing talent Megs has for blowing up bridges.

    1. I heard the A-lister was Natalie Portman. But who knows.

  11. A great big welcome back. You’ve been missed ❤️ Wonderful entry as always & at this time, we could all do with a giggle. Just a thought, the pic of the dumb-dumbs from the Mountbatten Festival, is it me or does it look like Harry’s been turned to stone? Methinks he looked Megdusa right in the eyes. ❤️❤️

  12. Dear Saffy, I always enjoy and appreciate your humour, even more so in recent days.
    Thank you for using your precious personal time to keep us entertained.
    I hope you are taking good care of yourself in this new world we find ourselves.

  13. Your jiffy-giffies are right spot on, too funny today – these posts always seem to come when I just need a bright spot so thanks a gazzillion, Saffy!

  14. So glad to see you back, and with a top-of-the-form, 10/10, surpassed yourself post!

  17. Lots of laughs here! With the FedEx delivery man tossing the box over the rail, this was the best. Turn out he tossed a computer monitor……..

  18. Oh Saffy! What a wonderful surprise having your blog to wake up to today. It’s ‘Good Friday’ here, but now it’s GREAT Friday!
    Thanks for all the laughs! I’m trying to work out what my favourite part was, but alas it’s all so funny!
    If I had to pick one, gun to my head, it would be “They say elephants never forget, but I’m sure they’d rather forget this one.” #gold!
    Have a lovely Easter break, despite us all being in isolation!
    So wonderful to have your talents shared with us again! 🥰🥰🥰

  19. I’m so glad that you’re back! I so appreciate your wit right now. I hope that your break was exactly what you needed. Big, distant hugs!

  27. YESSS!! So glad you’re back to make us laugh. Speaking of amusement…someone hijacked the archewell foundation site, and redirected it to Kanye West’s song/video for “Gold Digger.” Her sugars are dissolving into mass hysteria. Love it!
