Organisers of next years Royal Wedding breathed a huge sigh of relief today after the realisation that the date set for next year had narrowly missed ex tyrant and german dictator Adolf Hitlers birthday by only nine days.
'That was close' said a relieved spokesman on behalf of the organising committee ' you've got to think of everything these days. It's not just something borrowed, something old, something new with this lot, it's also about something that doesn't coincide with anything German and that's especially bloody Hitler'.
It was more by luck than judgement that the 20th of April was avoided ' if it wasn't for the Duke Of Edinburgh's annual haemorrhoid check up clashing with that date we may well of gone for that day instead'.
The Royal family have much to thank the Dukes arse grapes for but not all were happy with that date being avoided. Potential best man Prince Harry was getting secretly excited about the idea of brushing the dust off his old fancy dress outfit of a nazi german officers uniform for the big day in the vain hope that he may well be wearing it.
A palace insider leaked to the press that he could hear the sound of goose stepping coming from the Prince's private chamber last night alongside aggresive shouting of ' ve have vays of making you marry vill' as preparation for an ill chosen nazi derived wedding speech.
The line about how Kate was the next best thing William could get in the abscence of Eva Braun demonstrated how close the House of Windsor came to an end matched only by the events of Bosworth Field just at the bit when Richard the Third lost his horse.
Fortunately Harry will have to curtail his speech to the usual best man speech material and although royal censors will have to look at it very closely it will probably not stop him reeling out the William, the gimp suit, badger incident to all and sundry at the reception.
