Prince Edward announces his retirement

prince edwardEighth in line to the throne Prince Edward has marked his 50th birthday today with the sad news that he will be retiring from the things that he does, whatever they might be, with immediate effect.

Speaking from outside Buckingham Palace, where he was due to celebrate his half century with other royals and fellow princes Charles, Andrew and Naseem Hamed, Prince Edward issued the following statement. “I’m 50 and apparently you can retire at 50. Everyone needs to knock things on the head at some point and it’s about time that I quit whatever it is I’ve been doing anyway to spend the same amount of time with my family and my hobbies. Whatever they are. I’ll certainly be instructing my servants to spend more time gardening.”

A palace insider told us “It’s a myth that he doesn’t do very much. Only the other day he opened a thing. And he’s flown off to a lot of countries, mainly hot ones with nice beaches to do some stuff and chat a bit.”

Prince Edward may have to come out of retirement should anything happen to Charles, Andrew, William, Harry, Naseem hamed or the artist previously known as prince, which would require him to adopt the duties of King. A palace insider explained “Should that happen he would need to open some things and fly off to a lot of countries, mainly hot ones with nice beaches.”
