Staying longer with a monger?
Blog Guy, it seemed to me that Britain’s Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, really had to do some silly stuff on their long trip to Canada.
I mean, cowboy hats, a stagecoach, canoes, stuff like that.
Don’t worry about William and Catherine. At least they managed to avoid visiting fishmongers, which is the worst royal duty there is.
Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla, wasn’t so lucky yesterday, as you can see in the photo on top. Looks like she’s about to make a run for it.
Why are fishmonger visits considered so bad?
Because of the horrible smell. It takes weeks to get it out of their royal clothing.
Not to mention all the bad fish puns. Who can forget about the Queen’s visit a couple of months ago to the world’s most chatty fishmonger?
Any idea what that fishmonger is saying to Prince Charles?
He’s probably pointing to a clock and telling Charles he has to suck it up and act interested for another 15 minutes.
So how did Camilla fare yesterday with the Salcombe Fishmongers?
That’s awful. I guess I wouldn’t want to be a royal, after all.
Oh come on, it’s still pretty easy money, all things considered.
