In a suprise move Her Majesty the Queen will be delivering this years Christmas Broadcast in rap. it is thought that she wishes to dispel her stuffy image and show that she is "down with her subjects". In a departure from tradition the broadcast with also feature the Royal Consort and be billed as "Her Madje Liz, and her Home Boy Phil da Greek".
"One has been wanting to move in the direction of youth 'culture' for some time", said a Royal Spokesman speaking the Queen Words "but One has felt constrained by the needs of a long rein in the future - that need is rapidly diminishing, so I though 'what the Dickens, let's do it'".
Somewhat controversially, american rapper Eminem has been helping the Queen write her script, and music will be written by Gnarls Barkley. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are reported to be devastated by "yet another let down, I felt sure we were in the frame this year" droned a gravel voiced Nick.
