Buckingham Palace today announced that, should The Duchess of Cambridge give birth to a set of twins later this year, the second twin would be raffled by Camelot.
Tickets will go on sale after the five month ultrasound and will be available from all National Lottery outlets at the price of 25 pence each or three for 50 pence.
A spokesman for Clarence House, Seymour Proudlock, told journalists that traditionally royal twins were nothing but trouble and revealed that William and Kate are secretly dreading the arrival of a royal brace.
He claimed that they fear they will probably get them mixed up at some point and prevent the genuine heir to the throne from his or her rightful place, thus resulting in the end of the world as we know it.
Speculation has arisen after book makers reduced the odds on royal twins and after the recent publication of a book by Dorothy Johnson in which she claims she won Prince William's twin in a game of rummy against The Princess of Wales whilst in rehab in 1982.
