Britain is still in shock at the news of Elizabeth II's death when the next disturbing news shakes the United Kingdom! According to well-informed circles, Buckingham Palace is planning a revolution that reads like a bad joke: a man should become queen.
"I don't think the country is ready for a male queen," believes nobility expert Felicitas von Humbug, "the British are rightly considered very conservative and will certainly not be particularly happy about this decision, with which the Windsors apparently cramped to give it a modern touch.”
This time, Charles went too far with his progressive nonsense, it can be heard behind closed doors at court. His eco-instincts were still accepted with gnashing of teeth. But this gender madness would not work at all, it is said in connection with the 73-year-old's plans to be crowned as the new queen soon.
Indeed, many people in Britain and around the world are unsure whether a man is capable of conducting the arduous business of a queen. Men are known to be self-pitying, erratic and prone to illness. "In any case, I don't think Charles will last 70 years like his mother," fears Humbug's nobility expert. A silly fantasy title like “King” that sounds like something from a past century cannot change that.
There is still hope in the British Isles that Charles will see reason - and will have completed the gender reassignment surgery by the time of the coronation at the latest.
