News broke today that Queen Elizabeth II is the true author of the astonishingly wide range of pink-infested romance novels previously attributed to Dame Barbara Cartland. Suspicions arose after 57 previously unseen works were discovered in a trunk in the basement of an unnamed publisher based just off The Mall.
Dr Doug McAndrews, an expert in Baconian theory and psychobabble, had long been suspicious of the prolific output of Dame Barbara, particularly given her additional interests in gliding, politics and whirling around London’s social scene. He pointed out that, like Shakespeare who covered for Elizabeth I, Dame Barbara was a willing co-conspirator to keep the true authorship of the works under wraps. She was rewarded with an investiture as Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1991.
Buckingham Palace refused to comment on the allegation earlier today and have so far failed to respond to a further question about the Queen branching out into crime fiction under the tutelage of J K Rowling.
