It was so nice to see The Guardian squirming in its coverage of yesterday's Royal Wedding, having found out from a survey that although it's anti-royalty, two thirds of its readership isn't. It devoted its first 15 pages to the event and had a 16-page "souvenir supplement" as well, and although it stuck in an occasional barb it basically had to go with the flow. That's the thing about British pomp: it's awesome. That means, you end up being awed by it.

Anyway, this caption was in the supplement under a picture of The Queen and Prince Phillip:

Parents? I think they mean grandparents. This is what comes of ignoring the royal family for decades...

Aren't the Duke and Duches of Cambridge noisy kissers?
