So, when do we invade Poland?

Prince Charles to celebrate Royal Family’s German heritage in major speech on ‘Brexit tour’

When’s the Crusade into Lithuania? Busbys would look good on the Champs Elysee it has to be said. Switching entirely to a diet of sausages and potatoes might not quite suit but perhaps we can get Hugo Boss to do the spiffy uniforms once again?

  1. I wonder if he will refer to his cousin Charles Edward, the last duke of Saxe Coburg Gotha, and the way he was disowned by the British branch of the family. I guess he was the last member of the family in recent times who tried to foster good Anglo-German relations and look what happened to him

    ” In 1953, he watched the coronation of his cousin’s granddaughter, Elizabeth II, at a local cinema”

  2. Again, some person who has spent ten minutes in the UK counts as British when he needs rescuing from Gitmo, but someone has has a German great-great-great-grandfather still counts as German. He’s half danish-greek too, with a large dose of jockinese, but no, german german german. It’s daft and so cliched that it long ago lost any pretence of being funny.

  3. J.R.R Tolkein put it best to the publishers of the Hobbit in NASDP controlled Germany who were aquiring as to any middle eastern heritage.
    “My great-great-grandfather came to England in the 18th century from Germany: the main part of my descent is therefore purely English, and I am an English subject—which should be sufficient. I have been accustomed, nonetheless, to regard my German name with pride, and continued to do so throughout the period of the late regrettable war [WW1], in which I served in the English army. I cannot, however, forbear to comment that if impertinent and irrelevant inquiries of this sort are to become the rule in matters of literature, then the time is not far distant when a German name will no longer be a source of pride.”

  4. The tin ear of the Establishment never fails to amaze me. Charlie boy giving an overtly political speech in defiance of convention is a further indication that he really shouldn’t be the Heir Apparent. What a pity that the only non-bonkers of Lizzy’s brood, Princess Anne, is out of the succession.

  5. Bloke in Germany in(vading) Austria

    You’d need an army if you wanted to invade Poland, boom! Boom!

  6. Kevin

    His speech will have been written in its entirety by the Foreign Office. Convention defiance is perfectly OK if it accords with the prejudices of our betters.

  7. What a pity that the only non-bonkers of Lizzy’s brood, Princess Anne, is out of the succession.

    Hear, hear. Queen Anne, (personal motto: Not bloody likely!) Would have May pissing her knickers.

  8. The Greek royal family was all German. The House of Glücksburg.

    The married into the Danish, Bulgarian etc royal families. All Germans too.

  9. Seem to recall the relationship between the German ruler and his British relatives wasn’t too good and one of the minor factors in WWI particularly regarding Germany’s militarisation prior to that

  10. Bnic… But Wilhelm had a deformity and felt insecure. When the Saxe Coburg Gotha Duke dom fell vacant, he asked the English relatives to fill it. They did. The last duke of Saxe…. Was a true Brit, but abandoned by George 5 after Ww1, left to deal with the forces marauding round Germany, making his peace with Hitler. Does Charles really want to bring this up?
