the only contest which doesn’t charge premium rates

By ATWadmin On September 29th, 2007

After studying this photo, and trying to decide what, if anything, our Heir to the Throne was actually emphasizing, I have decided to inaugurate a new competition.

Based entirely on this Wiki-webpage, which was reached through here, I am challenging the ATW readership to elaborate, in only thirty words or less, how  Number 553, one HSH Prince Edzard of Wied (b. 1968) was able to ascend the British throne in early 2008.

And extra points will be awarded for any explanation of where Wied actually is! 

Closing time shall be 11.00 a.m. Sunday

  1. "how Number 553, one HSH Prince Edzard of Wied (b. 1968) was able to ascend the British throne in early 2008."

    He grabbed it and threw it in the air.

  2. Under EU directive 124675 Britain was compelled to open it’s head of State position to EU wide competition. Peter Mandelson awarded contract to German national from Wied. Elizabeth granted redundancy.

  3. Who’d have guessed the Windsors would convert to Islam?

  4. Wied , Germany is in the land of Rheinland-Pfalz and the Prince’s antecedents are quite plain to see .
    Perhaps I have , once again , missed the point behind this post .

  5. Gay marriage becomes legal.
    Charles divorces Camilla.
    Charles marries Edzard.
    The Queen dies.
    Charles becomes king and Edzard becomes queen.

  6. Thant name just makes me think of Eddie Izard being on the throne.

  7. Doctor,

    Yes, I’m afraid you have, once more, missed the point!

  8. Colm wins,

    David a close second!

  9. I’ve won I’ve won!

    My lottery ticket didn’t come up trumps but hey at least I have won something today 🙂

  10. Colm,

    Let me begin by offering my heartfelt congratulations, and then let me observe that you won because you care, and care deeply.
