Chapter: The Omega Seat

Victoria Rosemond Bond, The Wizard, and Starfish – were shocked when Bond got an invite to the Queen’s funeral.

“Looks like I’m on the list of succession to the throne. I am now number one hundred. I am kin to Rosamond Clifford via the de Toney family. I didn’t know I was number one hundred and one!”

Being led to her seat at Saint Geroge’s Chapel, Victoria noticed several people had turned their heads to see who was in the very back row. There was whispering. The gentleman with silver hair seated next to her, leaned towards Bond.

“Lucky you. You’re going to get allot of press!”

“Why?” asked Victoria in a loud whisper.

“Don’t you know? You’re in…..The Omega Seat!

Victoria’s rapid mind did not take long to put the meaning of all this together. She had seen the Alpha and Omega symbol on a dozen cotes of arms when she worked at the College of Heraldry. This motto came with….”The last, will later be first.”. What Bond did not know, was, that the de Toneys descend from Sir Lancelot – and Queen Guenevere! These Grail Lovers had founded a Cadette Arthurian Grail Linage. Victoria was told to carefully watch the lowering of the Queen’s casket into the Royal Vault. Professor John von John, and the Wizard, suspected this ritual had something to do with the Order of the Garter.

When the piper began to pipe his pipes, the casket began its decent. Victoria got just a glimpse of it, and now stood up to get a better look – and was grabbed by two Beefeaters wearing white gloves.

“Come with us!” they bruskly said. Victoria watched another costumed man wrap a purple velvet rope around her seat, and apply a seal to it. Shoved in a Bently, Bond was hauled off to the entrance of the Long Walk. Exiting, the gate was opened – and Victoria was cast down on the ground!

“A hex upon you and the House of Lancelot. Curse the Royal Usurper of Camelot!”

Dusting herself off, Bond braced herself for the onslaught of reporters. One from The Rapture Times was very pushy.

“Did you stand up!”

“Why…yes!”

“Then – you are…..The One! Do you have anything to say to the President of the United States?”

“President Biden invited me to dinner at the American Embassy!”

“Not that imposter….The Real President!” she spat!

Meanwhile, at the gate to Buckingham Palace, Starfish is doing the dance of Aleut Royalty. She flashed a fake embassy pass at the Bobbies and parked their Jaguar next to a mound of flowers. She had fashioned a fake totem that she placed on the ground, and began her Dance of the Northern Lights that was the Rainbow Bridge to Valhalla – that she had ripped-off from the Zaouli. So full of rage and jealousy was Starfish for not being invited to the funeral she went into a trance. Her dancing got allot of press – especially in the States, where Donald Trump – was fuming!

Trump claims he would have gotten a better seat than Biden at the Queen’s funeral

  • President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden sat in the 14th row for the Queen’s funeral on Monday.
  • Trump mocked Biden for where he was seated, saying that he would have had a better seat.
  • Seating arrangements seemed to prioritize Commonwealth leaders and royalty.

The Order of the Garter

BOOK OF CONDOLENCE

In medieval times, King Edward III was so inspired by tales of King Arthur and the chivalry of the Knights of the Round Table that he set up his own group of honourable knights, called the Order of the Garter. Nearly 700 years later, the Order is the oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain. The Knights, now both male and female, used to be limited to aristocracy, but today they are chosen from a variety of backgrounds, in recognition for their public service

The patron saint of the Order is St George (patron saint of soldiers and also of England)  and if there are vacancies in the Order, appointments are announced on St George’s Day (23 April). The spiritual home of the Order is St George’s Chapel, Windsor. Every knight is required to display a banner of his arms in the Chapel, together with a helmet, crest and sword and an enamelled stallplate.

These ‘achievements’ are taken down on the knight’s death and the insignia are returned to the Sovereign. The stallplates remain as a memorial and these now form one of the finest collections of heraldry in the world.

Today, the Order includes the Queen, who is Sovereign of the Garter, several senior Members of the Royal Family, and twenty-four knights chosen in recognition of their work. Knights of the Garter are chosen personally by the Sovereign to honour those who have held public office, who have contributed in a particular way to national life or who have served the Sovereign personally. These have included Marshal of the RAF, Lord Stirrup, and former Prime Ministers Sir John Major and Sir Winston Churchill.

Motto: Honi soit qui mal y pense (Shame on him who thinks this evil)

Chapel: St. George’s Chapel, Windsor

Ranks: Knight or Lady

Post-nominals: KG or LG

Founded: 1348

Garter Day

The annual iconic Garter Day procession, where The Queen and the Knights process in grand velvet robes, glistening insignia and plumed hats, is one of the most traditional ceremonies in the Queen’s calendar. 

Every June, a grand procession of the knights takes place at Windsor Castle, accompanied by a marching band and Officers of the Order, all in grand ceremonial dress.

The day begins with The Queen formally investing any new Companions with the Order’s insignia in the Throne Room of the Castle. The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh entertain the members and officers at a lunch, and then all process on foot to a service in St. George’s Chapel. There is a short service where any new Companions are installed. The Sovereign and other members of the Order then return to the Upper Ward of the castle in carriages and cars.

Starfish Takes A Wife

The Royal Janitor

Chapter Five:      ‘I Take This Woman’

Some of the brightest minds in the World Intelligence Industry swear they felt the floor of BAD headquarters, shake, when Miriam got off the elevator and headed for the BAD war room – in her bare feet! Miriam had large Nordic feet because her DNA material were infamous walkers! Her Viking kin hauled their long boats out of the Volga a dozen times as they headed to the Black and Caspian Sea, then, it’s on the Damascus! Starfish’s Aleut DNA walked across the Bearing Straits to the New World. Russian is a second language for this very durable and determined native people. Everyone in the war room froze when they heard Miriam’s question she bellowed out, as she….came!

“Who’s been talking behind my back?” (Fee-fi-fo-fum)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fee-fi-fo-fum

Everyone turned to face The Giant, but Victoria. She was frozen in place, her whole body tingling with an energy she had never known. It had been three days since they had lay eyes on each other. Now it was X-Mas Time. Victoria felt like a four year old.

“Don’t you think I can feel that, hear you? My ears have been ringing for days!”

Starfish walking up to a woman who knew martial arts, but she dare not take a defensive posture. She had heard how bad-ass Miriam is. Now she was the recipiant of the dead-fish-eye stare.

“Is  it you? What do you have to say – to my face?”

The poor woman had to lower her head, because she read the message.

“Come. It’s time to hunt and kill a whale!” There was no conjecturing in Miriam’s look, that now took in the storyboard and the iconic portrait of a member of her tribe.

“I see you have summonded the spritit of my ancestor, Saint Peter, the Aleut Savior? Did you ask his permission?” Taking two steps, Starfish has locked on to a young handsom man, who could read the other covert question.

“Do you have designs on my woman? Are you lusting after her?”

Walking up to an older woman, Starfish put her face close to her face.

“You’re wondering if I have Romanov blood in my veins. You’ve been plotting how to get a sample of my saliva. Have you considered……..a kiss?”

The poor woman’s eyes were as wide as can be as she ran to the Lady’s room. There was some leakage.

The dozen or so souls who had formed a human shield around their boss, parted like the Red Sea as Starfish came towards her love object, who was trying to conceal her trembling, make it go away by taking deep breaths. Victoria jumped out of her skin when she felt Miriam’s hands fall upon her shoulders.

“Is it you who has been talking about me – behind my back? I could hear you hundreds of miles away.”

Victoria could not take it, and turned to face her accuser. She gasped. Miriam was wearing facial paint, perhaps, war-paint? She broke out in a joyful smile. Here she was, her beloved crazy woman, letting it all hang-out. For sure she had come from the Isle of Wight to ask only one person the question. Starfish was giving her the fish-eye that she received the day they met. She was sizing up her new boss. This is when Victoria fell in love. Her eyes twinkled with love and devotion. This is the most unique human being she will ever meet. For a second Starfish’s eyes twinkled back, then, she bent down and hoisted Victoria over her shoulder!

“I take this woman. She is mine from this day on! Does anyone object?”

“I object!” said the elderly woman who had come back from the bathroom. “This is unheard of. That woman has rights! All women have rights! This is an outrage!”

Three giant steps, and Miriam was in her face, again, as was Victoria’s bum. She was as lifeless as a seal pelt.

“So you do want to fight me. The emptying of ones bowels and bladder is a good thing before we battle. Being a Breatharian, I have not eaten or drank water for three days. I am good to go. Do you prefer the horn of the Narwhale, or, a Whalebone?

To be continued.

Line of Succession

The Act of Settlement (1701) laid down that only Protestant heirs of Princess Sophia, granddaughter of James I, may succeed to the British throne. Neither Roman Catholics, nor those who marry a Roman Catholic, nor those born out of wedlock, may remain in the line of succession. Under common law the crown was passed on by male primogeniture under which younger sons succeed before their elder sisters. See Line of Succession FAQs

This changed on the 26 March 2015 with the introduction of the Succession to the Crown Bill 2013 which changed the succession laws so that the right of male primogeniture no longer applies. Males born after 20 October 2011 no longer precede their elder sisters in the line of succession. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first child born on 22 July 2013 was a boy Prince George. Their second child Princess Charlotte was born on 2 May 2015. She is 3rd in line and did not lose her position when her younger brother Prince Louis was born.

The Bill removed the disqualification of those who marry Roman Catholics so that George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews, who married a Catholic in 1988 was restored in 42nd place after the Duke of Kent. It also repealed the Royal Marriages Act 1772 so that only the first 6 persons in line to the throne require the Sovereign’s approval to marry. This means that Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie no longer required permission from Queen Elizabeth II to marry. Royal Family
