That will be company

for you.



Honest to God, I never thought

to see you in such a state.

You must miss him


You do not...


Get him out!

Get him out of here!

Get him out!

Get him out!

So, the day they arrived,

she greets the sultan and

his family with barely a word

and retires to her chamber.

Now, the sultan, he's not used to

state occasions without a head of state,

and he's standing in the lobby waiting

for someone to tell him what to do.

But the court

is under strict instructions

not to talk in the corridor,

so nobody speaks to him, not

a living soul, for the whole afternoon.

So now it's dinner,

and everyone's standing around

the table, still not a word,

waiting for Her Majesty

to arrive.

One hour goes by, two.

The sultan is getting a wee

bit peckish, to say the least.

Finally, his wee laddie

breaks for the cold meats

and stuffs a slice in his mouth.

Oh, the uproar

when she heard.

- You'd have thought somebody

had stolen the crown jewels.

- So?

[Sighing] So there are rules.

Things you do and don't do.

All I did was tell the woman

how I feel, for God's sake.

- You don't tell Her Majesty

how you feel.

- I speak as I find, Archie.

Not down south you don't.

- So, what did Ponsonby do

when she started shouting?

- [Slams Drawer Shut]


I thought he nearly ruptured his truss.

Prince Leopold? Now isn't he the one

who sits around bleedin' all day?

So what does his valet do?

Bring out his bandages for him?

It's better than

shovelling horseshit.

Now, if it's promotion

you're after,

you should've picked

one of the healthier ones.

She's hardly

a full hamper herself.

It's only grief that's

made her that way.

Three years, John? Is that not

a bit long to be grieving?

- She loved him.
