get more senile every day.

I have returned,

catching it.


Kneel, sir.

Father, this is

most emibarrassing.

I command you

to kneel, sir!

I don't deserve it.

I haven't earned it.

Nobody earns this.

It's given because I am

the king and I like it.

Where's my sword?

Ah! It's far

too heavy.

You know, I was born with the

curse of the weak wrists.

Oh, I do so love

a ceremony.

Ah, that's better.

I dub thee--

now, wait a minute.

Shouldn't there be

something before that?

Yes, indeed, sire.

I have it here.

Your majesty--father,

do we--must I--

us, or course,

you must. Ahem!

Let it be known

to all here present

that by our command

his royal highness,

the prince

Edward Charles

Richard Augustus Philip

has received

our gracious favor.

You did, sire.

Ah, yes, well,

it's magnificent stuff.

Well worth

paying attention to.

From this day henceforth

shall be entitled

"to be known as

a knight grand cross

of the most illustrious order of

Saint David the blessed martyr. "

There's... somebody

in the room!

Very fine. Now I kiss

you on both cheeks.

That's the part

I like best.

I sometimes give medals

to a whole regiment.

Good. Very

touching ceremony.

Most touching, sire.


Don't always have

to agree, you know.


dear cousin.

Oh, lord!

Who let him in?

Congratulations !

I heard all the trumpets.

Now, don't you start.

Oh! A little

premature, am I?
