SDTOTD #2: Monarch-Parent

No, that’s not Spike Milligan, that’s a picture of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and stalwart arm-candy to HM the Q.

But who will that picture depict should (God forbid) Liz Reg II fall off her perch before him? Well, George VI‘s death saw Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon retitled Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, so I’m thinking that would make him Prince Philip, The King Father. Sounds quite badass, in a Game of Thrones way.

Here’s a handy diagram of this theoretical post-Elizabethan milieu:FatherKing

Well, there’s my Sober Drunk Thought Of The Day (hic!). Happy Father’s Day all!
