LONDON — Her Majesty The Queen issued a rare statement, announcing a new Prince has been found in the kingdom of Disneyland after a tourist pulled the mystical sword from the stone in the popular theme park.
Buckingham Palace says the man has been given the royal title of “The Duke of Anaheim” to commemorate the rare and joyous achievement.
For over a decade, the mystical sword, Excaliber, remained fixed to the stone in Disneyland near Anaheim, California. It said only a true heir to the throne would be deemed worthy to pull Excaliber from the stone.
The Queen says The Duke of Anaheim will replace The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry. All royal duties, responsibilities, and privileges belonging to the former prince will be inherited by The Duke of Anaheim.
“Following recent discussions and transitions within my family, I am pleased to announce a new heir has emerged by divine providence, who proved his worth by pulling Excaliber from the stone where it has remained affixed for over a decade. Excaliber, the same sword once wielded by King Arthur, has chosen an heir. We are delighted by this news and welcome the Duke of Anaheim to our family and to Great Britain. The Duke of Anaheim will inherit the former privileges and responsibilities once belonging to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who departed the Royal Family to pursue a Tim Hortons franchise in Canada.”
No word on when The Duke of Anaheim will make his first public appearance after pulling Arthur’s sword from the stone, however, Buckingham Palace servants were spotted rolling a rather large round table into the castle early this morning.
