Molossian President on Queen's Honours List

Molossian President on Queen's Honours List
MOLOSSIAN PRESIDENT, PRINCE OF HOMESTEAD, AND OTHERS HONOURED BY QUEEN AS PALACE PUBLISHES ACCESSION HONOURS LIST

23 May 2013

As is customary when a new monarch ascends to the throne, an Honours List was published by St. George’s Palace today to honour or appoint to office subjects of the Queen who have made noteworthy contributions or who are newcomers to the community, or to thank friends of the Realm who have expressed support during the time of the nation’s transition from one reign to another, or simply to annoy the Clerks of the Crown in Chancery.

Most notably among those honoured today is Prince Erik of Sconeland who was named Lord High Chancellor of Hanover and Sconeland. The Lord Chancellor (as he is more commonly known) presides over the Chancery, is the nation’s premier judicial figure, and serves as the principal minister of Her Majesty’s Government during times when Parliament is prorogued or dissolved (the Glennish Parliament has not sat these past three years). In addition to those and other duties, the Lord Chancellor is the “general guardian of all infants, idiots, and chronic lunatics” which should keep His Highness rather busy. In addition to being named Lord Chancellor, His Highness received a couple of honourary commissions in the Glennish Uniformed Services, was made a recipient of the coveted Jacobean Cross, and was informed that he would be ennobled by the Queen (through subsequent Letters Patent) as Earl of Glenrothes and Baron White of Caereinion Wells in the County of Forth. The Prince’s new aristocratic titles maintain the Crown’s time-honoured tradition of victimizing honourees by lobbing vexingly unpronounceable titles at them.

Brand spanking new citizen David Oatney walked right through immigration and right onto the Honours List. As a reward for becoming the first new Glennish subject in recent memory, the unsuspecting (and now Right Honourable) Mr. Oatney was immediately punished by being saddled with sole responsibility for the administration of the Royal Capital as Lord Mayor of the City of Oxbridge. Hizzoner will have, at least, a shiny new Accession Day medal to pin onto his mayoral robe. Lord Mayor Oatney will have the distinction of becoming the very first Lord Mayor, just as the two year old Prince Charles of Glennain, Heir Apparent to the Glennish Thone, will have the distinction of being named the very first Lord Provost of the Sconnish Capital of Tartannac (and ex-officio Lord-Lieutenant of Sconeland). When interviewed about his appointment as the Queen’s vice-regal personage in and over the Kingdom of Sconeland, His Highness responded that, “Mr. Percival send Scarloey to…to give Thomas new caws to shunt for Gordon, but Gordon didn’t want to. No.” Indeed. Let’s see if the Lord Mayor of Oxbridge can top that.

His Royal Highness the Duke of Willanchurch, consort of our new Queen, was honoured by his Royal wife in a number of redundant and excessive ways. If being Prince Consort, head of the Royal House, and first on the Queen’s dance card were not enough to satisfy one, one can now take comfort in knowing that he is also an Admiral of the Fleet, the Colonel-in-Chief of the Queen’s Royal Hussars, a recipient of the Jacobean Cross, and Lord Warden of the Ports, Constable of Hastings Castle and Admiral of the Ports. Let’s hope the Duke has plenty of Dramamine in his medicine cabinet. And since, evidently, being a former King of Glennain isn’t honour enough, all of Glennains former kings have been further honoured with piles of military commissions and with the Accession Day Medal. The most recent of the ex-kings, the former King James II, now Duke of Oxbridge, was made Royal Governor of the Tower of Oxbridge and Keeper of the Royal Jewel House. I knew he wasn’t going to let go of those crowns of his go without a fight. Looks like he won in the end.

The first of our former Sovereigns may not get to delude himself awash in nostalgia for the old days by trying on the Crown Jewels in the mirror like the Duke of Oxbridge, but the former King James the First will get to breathe in the diseased and festering air of the Royal Hospital Kellsminster as its first Governor. Yeay. Lucky him. Perhaps as a consolation for having to empty the nation’s bedpans, His August Highness the Marquess of Mountcastle will now be able to insist that his patients address him as “Your August Royal Highness” as he will soon be created the first ever Archduke of Hanover. Wait. What? I know!

The Monarch of the Glens honoured not only her loyal subjects but foreign dignitaries as well. Ones, even twos of them were included on Queen Alexandra’s first Honours List, including His Territiorial Highness Prince Arthur of the House of Homestead, who has lavished congratulatory praise on our new Queen and who has gone to great lengths to like us on Facebook over and over again. Legendary celebrity micro-generalissimo His Excellency President Kevin Baugh of the renowned and world-famous Republic of Molossia in Northern Nevada was also honoured by the Queen in recognition of his friendly relationship with her Government. Both the Prince and the President will be commissioned honorarily as Commanders in the Royal Navy. Foreign potentates who said nice things to us but who were not included on this, the first of the Queen’s Honours Lists, needn’t feel slighted. There’s another Honours List coming up in June for the Queen’s Official Birthday.

The Honours List for the Queen’s Accession may be reviewed below:
