This morning, Prince Hot Ginge made a thousand British mums cleanse the ears of their children with holy water by saying the word “arse” during an interview on BBC Radio 2, and believe it or not, that’s not the biggest British royal news today. The big British royal news is that before Duchess Kate and Prince William hosted President Obama and Michelle Obama in their Ballard Designs-looking ass sitting room at Kensington Palace, they hid a plaque that they thought would offend their American guests.
The Sun (via The Mirror) says that below the painting behind Duchess Kate and Michelle Obama in the picture above is a plaque with the title on it. The title of the painting is “The Negro Page.” Not one of Duchess Kate and Prince William’s minions gave it a thought until minutes before President Obama showed up.
The source says that officials “scrambled” to hide the title. If only they would’ve thought about that way sooner. They could’ve switched that painting with a piece of art that would’ve really impressed the Obamas. I’m talking about a painting of America’s most gorgeous being: Angelyne!
The source says that they eventually got rid of the plaque and replaced it with a plant:
The plaque is said to have been hurriedly removed before a pot plant was strategically placed to cover the space where the plaque would have been.
A source told The Sun: ‘Imagine the horror when someone spotted the N-word.’
Imagine if they didn’t even notice the plaque until the Obamas walked into the room. It would’ve turned into a wacky and zany scene out of a bad 70s sitcom:
As Duchess Kate greets Michelle Obama with a hug, her eyes accidentally land on the plaque and as they widen, Prince William notices that his wife’s eyeballs are getting bigger and bigger. When he looks over at what she’s seeing, he nearly drops his drink and motions to Prince Hot Ginge who is standing by it. PHG also notices and quickly pushes a plant in front of it. All is well until President Obama pushes the plant to the side to put his drink down and it hits the floor!
When Obama gets down to pick up the pieces of the broken pot, Kate quickly runs over and says that she’ll clean it up while telling PHG with her eyes to do something QUICK. PHG pretends to choke on something and after Obama runs over to help him, Kate tries to scratch out the words on the plaque with a cheese knife. All of the commotion wakes up Prince George and he goes into the room in his itty bitty robe, and after he rubs his eyes, he asks (he’s an advanced reader and speaker for his age, okay?), “Mummy, why are you scratching out the word ‘negro’?” All eyes land on Duchess Kate who nervously laughs before saying, “Hehehehe, children these days.” The laugh track swells. Cut to commercial!
But you know, if they never got rid of that plaque, I don’t think the Obamas would’ve ever noticed. They were probably too busy sitting there wondering why the British royals live in a fucking Lamps Plus.
And here’s Prince Hot Ginge setting the streets on fire while struttin’ out of BBC Radio 2 this morning:
