Queen cancels diamond party because of the economic gloom

The Queen has cancelled a party to mark her diamond wedding anniversary because she felt it would be “inappropriate” to hold a lavish celebration with the country on the brink of recession.

 

Guests at the party, which was due to be held at The Ritz this weekend, would have been served champagne from crystal-studded bottles and dined off tablecloths covered with sparkling jewels.

But with her subjects facing rising bills and falling house prices, and the banking system paralysed by the so-called “credit crunch”, the Queen has decided that the celebration would be regarded as insensitive.

Shit! Should I start worrying now?
