Andrew Neil mocks Harry and Meghan over ‘strange’ Archie title snub ‘Earl of Woking!’

227

ANDREW NEIL has mocked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over the couple’s “strange” decision not to allow their son Archie the title Earl of Dumbarton.

“Which seems strange since Dumbarton is a fine town on the northern bank of the River Clyde just down from Glasgow.

“Dominated by an igneous rock on which sits a castle which was an important fortress for centuries, it could be straight out of the Game of Thrones.

“It was from there that the ancient kings of Strathclyde ruled and it has been a title of the Scottish nobility since 1675.”

“But the Sussexes said no thanks because the first four letters spell dumb.

“Which is used to mean stupid more often in American than it is in the UK.

“A strange decision never the less.

“I guess it also rules out Earl of Dumfries.”

The veteran broadcaster then suggested sarcastically that the couple should instead adopt “Earl of Woking” for Archie’s title instead.

“I am sure the Earl of Woking would be perfectly acceptable to the royal couple.

“And I offer them that in a spirit of compromise and helpfulness.

“Which is what GB News is all about.”

“They were worried about how that might look.

While another reportedly said: “It wasn’t just Meghan who pointed out the potential pitfalls.

“It also bothered Harry.”
