Great tidings Swipesters!!
Prince Andrew and Channel 4 TV Presenter June Sarpong have announced their plans to marry early in the new year! The royal gala will take place at Windsor Castle and Archbishop Desmond Tutu is believed to have been approached to officiate. The couple met during a yachting break in the Caribbean and have been inseperable since. "I've never seen the Prince so happy", claimed an equerry, "he really is smitten and I can't really say I blame him. June is a real stunner, isn't she?" A spokesman for C4 said "we don't normally like to comment on our presenter's private arrangements, but in June's case we're delighted to make an exception. We're all absolutely overjoyed for her and, to tell the truth, none of us can really believe it's happening! We'd like to formally send the couple all our congratulations and wish them every happiness together in the future".
A palace insider was quick to confirm that the Prince - currently separated from his first wife, the children's author Sarah Ferguson - had the Queen's blessing for the union. Mindful of the speculation that surrounded her eldest son's re-marriage earlier in the year, Buckingham Palace was at pains to impress upon the gathered media representatives from around the world that the couple had the full backing of the Royal Family. "The Queen thinks June is marvellous. They have a right old time together, studying form and making rude jokes about the residents of Albert Square! They seem more like mother and daughter than in laws-to-be. I for one never thought I'd hear Kanye West blaring out of the royal apartments at Balmoral, but it just goes to show, doesn't it?"
The Prince and his new bride are expected to honeymoon on a Pacific Island before heading off on a semi-official tour of the Polynesian Islands. The newly-weds told a packed press conference that they would be embarking on a hectic diary of official engagements upon their return and that they had no plans, as yet to settle down to start a family - although neither was ruling out the possibility of starting a family in the not too distant future.
We here on the show would like to wish their Royal Highnesses every happiness in their new life together. God bless us - everyone!!
Love on y'all,
