Royal Christmas Cards for 2016

The Prince of Wales has released a Christmas card showing happier times with dynastic rival Prince Andrew's daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie. The smiling, unemployed youngsters are shown flanking Charles and Carmila at Royal Ascot's, Silly Hat Day, earlier this year.

A famous, unnamed, toady journalist at the BBC said, in a fake vicar's voice, that Charles felt sorry for Princess Eugenie in particular. That if he was outed every time he had waved his sword at a famous person, he would have been on the front page of the Sun every week during the 70's and 80's!

His former butler, Fawcett the Fence, was able to confirm that he, historically, had done all the royal children's 'fencing' for them, and was disappointed that his non-catering role had now been largely forgotten.

Absolutely disgraceful and blatantly racist display of pride in European dress and culture there. Those women should all have been wearing burkhas so as .... you know what's coming ..... "not to offend Muslims".

Indeed. Do people still bother with Xmas cards?

While I find Charlie's choice of Christmas card somewhat bizarre, (couldn't they at least have got the good-looking ones at the front, or was that the point?) I am slightly baffled by the rest of the post, which seems tenuously connected to the original subject.

"Do people still bother with Xmas cards?"

Time for a seasonal Fun Online Poll, methinks.
