At least someone's getting excited about the royal wedding. The Royal Mail is to issue some special stamps to mark the occasion, just as they did for the Prince of Wales' first marriage in 1981. No doubt, the designs are being finalised, the printing presses readied, and the collectors are getting their orders in already. They will join mugs, tea towels and other sycophantic trinkets on the sideboards of Britain's dwindling band of monarchists. But hang on; wasn't the marriage of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles supposed to prevent embarrassments like having her head on the stamps? Once again, a first-class mess.
