News reports* say this years Buckingham Palace Employee's Christmas Party was a huge success, particularly after Her Majesty The Queen found the bowl of spiked egg nog. During the festivities she bestowed titles on some of her long-time servants and freely awarded others on her staff some of her smaller colonies that she seems to have tired of.
The next morning at breakfast Prince Phillip, looking exhausted but with a gleam in his eye, agreed it was a "smashing evening".
Those attending confirmed The Queen enjoyed herself so much she's offered to host a New Year's Eve party at her place as well, complete with games, balloons, and silly string and, of course, more egg nog.
Prince Charles seemed especially pleased....giddy, actually....to hear of the boisterous evening enjoyed by his elderly parents and their household staff.
More news as it becomes available from The Sun.
* OK, it was a very slow news day. It's possible this just might have all been made up. Merry Christmas anyway. :)
