Meghan vs Panto

The Princess of Sussex has been appointed patron of the National Theatre – and will aim to use her profile for the good of British theatre.

For starters – she wants to see an end to one very peculiar British tradition: The Pantomime.

When asked why: “Because it’s really fucking weird”.

Patronages are selected in discussion with the palace, who aim to tie them in with the interests of members of the Royal Family.

Meghan’s own acting experience means she’s got little patience for the shambolic nature of pan-to – and is less than impressed with the attitude of the actors.

“On suits if we accidentally let out any spoilers all hell would break loose. But when I saw Jack and the Beanstalk they had the audience shouting out every single plot point”

“And the principal cast kept getting lost  – the audience had to constantly help them find each other”.

She will also become a Patron of Mayhew, an animal welfare charity.

She requested the appointment herself, after she was appalled to hear that pantomime horses are cut in two after every single performance, and that livestock can be so criminally undervalued in a bean-based economy.

She did however like the idea of a cat as a savvy political advisor – even if she did question why it had been forced to wear human boots.
