Not the royal wedding: an etiquette guide for the Middletons

10 golden rules for Carole, Michael and Pippa

1 Stand up during the national anthem and don’t hum.

2 Leave business cards at home. Or bring a LOT. It’s a big church.

3 If flogging spare invitations on eBay, be sure to use a cleverly disguised seller name. “Cherie Blair” ideal.

4 Never make eye contact with the Queen. She spits like a camel.

5 As the pair are declared man and wife, do not scream: “Holy shit! Kate’s going to be QUEEN!”

6 Don’t tip the archbishop.

7 Don’t kick the corgis, however tempting.

8 Do not accept any holiday villas from the president of Torturestan.

9 Don’t sign anything Andrew Morton puts in front of you.

10 Remember, it’s still not “Liz”.

      Hmm, I don’t know how much he’s getting paid, maybe he could use a tip or two.
