New Rules for the Royals

New Rules for the Royals By Elton Camp Though Kate may become queen some day To some she is required to curtsey anyway For it is a mere commoner she used to be She must defer to those born royal, you see Though if her husband is standing right there To curtsey to most of them she needn’t care All those rules sound pompous and inane to me Although it might be quite amusing for one to see Surely if she happens to have had too much booze And after curtseying, her royal balance should lose After she takes a few falls flat onto the castle floor That she married Prince William she may abhor Strangely enough, to Camilla she must kowtow To me, that seems highly inconsistent, somehow It seems preferable the way it is done in the USA Nobody bows and grandiose titles they don’t say But the duchess had to know what it was all about Unless she follows custom, she will be thrown out
