Royal Wedding - now you can lick it

Suddenly, the forthcoming royal nuptials are beginning to take on a life of their own. The Sunday Telegraph (free registration is required) report this morning that a set of stamps are being issued to commemorate the occasion. The Poet Laureate, Andrew Motion, has also announced that he is to mark the occasion by writing a poem. In doing so he is following in the footsteps of Sir John Betjeman in 1981. Enough already!

Meanwhile, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Gower resident, George Carey, has been roped in as chief cheerleader for the royal couple. He is quoted as saying:

"I think it's good for Prince Charles and Mrs Parker Bowles. I think it's good for the country because it's important that at the heart of the monarchy we have stable relationships, and therefore I do believe that we in the country should get behind them and welcome this relationship, this marriage, support them, and all Christians to pray for them both in the run up to the wedding and afterwards."

Perhaps, he should have a word with his colleagues and with his successor so as to get them to relax their rules and marry the couple in church.
