It’s sad, really. Poor Michelle Antoinette is having a bit of difficulty accepting the fact that she’s been snubbed by real royalty. But forsooth, verily, snubbething is what they have done. Pip, pip, cheerio. (Admit it, you thought we were British there for a moment, didn’t you?)
The Daily Telegraph UK reports the regal repudiation:
Even after it was clear that Prince William and Kate Middleton would not be sending a wedding invitation to the White House, Michelle Obama still appears not to have given up hope.
“If I get invited, I’ll go,” the First Lady said on the Live With Regis and Kelly Show on American television. She conceded, however, that, as things stand, she had not been invited.
Her comments are likely to exasperate senior courtiers, who — as I reported on Nov 14 last year — had to put off naming the wedding date until a week after announcing the engagement because White House officials were not at first certain when Barack Obama and his wife would make their first state visit to Britain.
Obama’s men, adamant that the two events should not clash, subsequently agreed May 24 to 26, almost a month after the royal wedding, as the dates for his visit.
Don’t they know she is the new American royalty? Have they not heard that she’s called Michelle Antoinette? Not seen her regal demeanor? Not noticed her imperial attitude?
She’s one of them, damn it, and it hurts not to be accepted.
