Will Failed to Release Handbrake; Kate Activated Car Ejection Seat, Launching Herself into Wild Blue Yonder

London, England –

It was disclosed today about the royal family that Duke William was so nervous on his wedding day that when he drove away from Buckingham Palace with Duchess Catherine in his father’s prized Aston Martin with the top down, he did so with the handbrake still up. Well, that was not the only automotive mishap made that day.

“The car is especially equipped with an array of both defensive and offensive security accoutrements,” explained, Jonathan Burke, a former security consultant to the royal family. “And though I am not at liberty to disclose their particular nature, I am authorized to say they are not standard in factory rollout models.”

Later, while driving along in the English countryside, Kate was so excited she began to jump up and down, dancing in her car seat. And while reaching to turn up the car radio, she accidentally activated one of those security accoutrements.

“She pressed the bloody ejection button,” Will allegedly told friends. “Good thing the car top was down, though.”

That is when the Duke’s military training as a helicopter pilot came in handy as he quickly calculated the trajectory of his new bride, maneuvering the Aston Martin underneath her to ensure her a soft landing.

“She was headed due south as the raven flies when I caught up with her,” William explained.

Once the Duchess was safely returned to her car seat, she hugged and kissed the Duke, thanking him profusely for saving her life.

“Promise me our marriage will always be this exciting,” the Duchess reportedly said to her Duke.

“I promise,” William allegedly replied, hugging and kissing Kate right back. And then admonished, “Now, before we get to the Tower of London, I must warn you. There are certain items you ought not to touch.”

“Hold on, love,” said Kate as she reached for the car radio to turn it down. “I can’t hear youuuu!!!”

Duke William Files for Name Change: 'The Duke (Formally Known as Prince) William'

London, England --

According to those close to the royal family, Prince William rather heavily lobbied the Queen Elizabeth II of England, his grandmother, to retain his title: Prince of Wales so that his then fiancée, Catharine, could continued to be referred to as Princess.

However, the Queen declined the request and without stating a reason why, bestowed the titles of Duke William and Duchess Catharine of Cambridge on the recently wed couple instead.

Perhaps as a sign of rebellion, the newly appointed Duke and Duchess jumped into their convertible, an Aston Martin. And with the top down, drove off the grounds of Buckingham Palace, headed straight for the nearest Barrister to get his former title legally restored.

"They make such a lovely couple," said the Barrister that heard the royal case. "But I told him my order to grant his name change is tentative at best. Likely to be overruled by the Queen herself when she gets wind of it."

Until then, however, Duke William won the right to be legally addressed as, "The Duke (Formally Known as Prince) William".

"It was the best I could do," explained the Barrister, who later confessed off the record that he confided with the Queen. Secretly getting her approval on the temporary name change in advance of his ruling.

"It will take time for Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Common Wealth to get adjusted to the name change," continued the Barrister back on the record. "So I advised them that it would be wise to present the court ordered name change where ever they go. So that way they avoid any ‘imperial entanglements’. They really do make a lovely couple."

"It’s a good thing they had that piece of paper with them," said a royal footman in service at Buckingham Palace, who was among the first to be presented the legal document. "I almost slipped up and called him Duke William."

However, "The Duke (Formally Known as Prince) William" flashed the piece of paper to the footman, saving them both embarrassment of a social faux pas of a royal magnitude.

"He saved my neck. That he did. That he did. Figuratively speaking, of course," said the footman. "I mean they stopped doing that sort of stuff around here centuries ago. Didn’t they? Oh my God! The maid, she forgot to curtsy. That’s’ it. She’s done in for sure! Sure as Bob’s your uncle."
