BBC Comedy lampoons every possible facet of the royal engagement…

The big story for the past week in Britain has been the announcement of Prince William’s engagement to Kate Middleton, his girlfriend of eight years. Even though this has been expected for quite some time, the British press has had a field day and one of the most mentioned ‘factoids’ about the future queen is that she is the first commoner in nearly four hundred years to marry a future King of England.

The entire situation is, of course, a sociological bag of tricks giving huge insight into the modern class system and attitudes to social stratification in Britain generally (the Daily Mail even went as far as to label Middleton a ‘very middle-class princess‘).

This video hits the nail on the head.
