Which Relative Will Embarrass You at Thanksgiving as Badly as the Prime Minister of Antigua Just Did Prince Harry?

Thanksgiving is an occasion which families often take as an opportunity to ask their youngest members probing questions about their relationship status. But will your uncle who fancies himself quite the comedian mortify you as badly the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda just did Prince Harry?

The red-headed royal is currently making the official rounds of the Caribbean, which brought him to a VIP reception with PM Gaston Browne. Generally these things are pretty anodyne diplomatic occasions, but apparently Browne decided to liven things up! “I believe we are expecting a new princess soon,” he told the gathered crowd of 300, according to the Telegraph. (Prince Harry has confirmed his relationship with Suits actress Meghan Markle, but they certainly haven’t made any bigger announcements.)

Browne then kept going:

“I want you to know that you are very welcome to come on your honeymoon here.”

The Prince appeared to blush and fiddled with his shirt to avoid eye contact as Mr Browne warmed to his theme and dropped another diplomatic clanger.

Making reference to the fact that the Prince was about to meet six of the country’s beauty queens, he said: “Whatever is done here, stays here. So do not worry.”


Pass the potatoes and we shall speak no more of this again.

I’m almost embarrassed to write this: one Thanksgiving, my cousin tried to set me up with her brother (also my cousin). I hadn’t seen them for years and the brother leered at me all day. When his sister tried to gauge my interest in him, I was like: what! we are cousins! Her reply was that we were only 2nd cousins and not blood related so it would be fine. I should have responded that it would not be fine because her idiot brother still has 1980s Long Island hair (spiked) and drives a Trans Am with a giant Rolling Stones tongue decal on the hood. Oh, and don’t forget the “Jagger” vanity plates! How could a girl resist? (easily. very, very easily). Dude is a multi-millionaire and can’t get a woman to go near him.
