It shows that I haven't got anything to do.

THe late mother of our dear Kween was known as "Queen Elizabeth the Queen mother"

So when our Kween snuffs it will Prince Philip be known as "Prince Philip the Queen Father"?

Sounds very gay

No, and the simplest reason is that when the queen dies the next monarch will be a King.

Absolutely right. However, let's assume that Charles pegs out as do the two offspring and changes to the law of succession means Ann gets the top job (a lot of ifs, I agree) then it would be very gay.

And Prince Philip would have to defy the odds and live longer than the Queen.

Dirk is a perfectly fine soap opera/ romance novel name *nods*

And those are two of the most manly of genres. I stand corrected.

Dirk is hard to yell therefore it's always "Di-ähk"

In a similar vein, Elizabeth would be the King Mother if she abdicated... =)

It is also not fully clear what would happen to the prince consort's title in the event that he were to outlive his wife, as this seems to have rarely occurred in the recorded annals of monarchy. [wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Consort)]

The only case in England is Philip outliving Mary I. And as he had buggered off to be King Philip II of Spain, I don't think anyone was too bothered about giving him a new title.

Unless they invent some male form of "dowager", I guess he'll just stay HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Boring.

Well no, because the Queen part of Queen mother refers to the sex of the title holder, not the monarch. So if he had a sex change then he might be the Queen father(?) to Charles. That would be pretty gay anyway though. Elizabeth would be the Queen mother if she abdicated, which would just make Charles seem gay, so that's ok.

indeed....

I had always thought that it was "The Queen Mother", not "The Queen's mother"....

Just thinking, I recall from years ago - isn't Prince Philip known in Tonga as:

Massa Him Belonga Queen?

In fairness, the late Queen Mother was only known as that because having two Queen Elizabeths would have been confusing.

Her Mother was simply known as Queen Mary up until her death.

And Prince Charles is "Pikininni bilong Queen".

My favourite piece of Pidgin is the expression for "condom". The word for tyre is "Gummi", and the expression for "condom" is "Gummi bilong kok".

A german expression for "condom" is just "Gummi". From now on, I'll call it "Gummi bilong kok"

Hang on!

"tyre belong cock" seems to me to mean "cock ring"

Clearly some contraceptive advice needed here......
