Coronation Chicken

We can learn a thing or two from the British royal family.  You’ve surely heard that Prince Harry is going to the coronation alone.  Whether Harry was allowed a plus-one is up for conjecture, but there’s a similar situation.  Way back in 1986, Prince Andrew married Sarah Ferguson.  In 1992, they announced their separation.  In 1996, they got a divorce.  You know what they didn’t do?  Stop living together.  That said, Fergie is no longer a “royal”.  Therefore, she is not obliged to be invited to every wedding or other event…and that includes coronations.  And Fergie gets it.  “No, I’m not [going] actually ‘cause it’s a state occasion.  And being divorced, I don’t think you can have it both ways.”  Well, I’ve had it both ways with many, many divorced men, but that’s another story.

You know who else won’t be going to the coronation?  The Pope.  He’s sent Charles his regrets…along with a gift.  His token is supposedly fragments from the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified – ‘cause nothing says good luck on your reign than something used to kill the “king of kings”!

Everyone should be keeping an eye on Camilla’s son, Tom Parker Bowles – who apparently is a food critic.  As such, he has decried the use of spices like chili and garlic at the festivities due to their foul odor.  Speaking of fowl, he’s also not a fan of “coronation chicken”, which he describes as “really horrible”.  For years, people said the same thing about his mum.
