Queenie Luv Elizabeth II will install Sir Tony as a member of the Order of the Garter this afternoon at a service at Windsor Castle. The former Labour Prime Shit Stirrer got his knighthood from Her Majesty last week after it was announced in the monarch’s New Year Honours list. The Order of the Garter is the oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain, which dates to Medieval times, and recognises members for their public service.
The ceremony, which sees participants don velvet robes and plumed hats, is taking place today for the first time in three years after pandemic delays.
Sir Tony’s knighthood, in recognition of his service to the nation, proved incredibly controversial due to his role in the Iraq war, and a petition to revoke the honour garnered one million signatures in January.
However, as well as governing the country, the former Prime Shit Stirrer also played a crucial role for the Queenie Luv and the Royle Family behind the scenes during a major crisis.
Just four months into his New Labour premiership, Diana, Princess of Wales was killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997.
As the nation grieved, Sir Tony persuaded the Queenie Luv to publicly pay tribute to Diana as the monarch was under immense pressure to respond to the tragedy, both from the media and the public.

However, despite the politician’s help, the Queenie Luv “didn’t like him” for it, according to historian Dominic Sandbrook, who relayed the top-level decisions surrounding Diana’s death in Channel 4’s recent documentary, ‘Royals Declassified’.
Speaking about Sir Tony, he said: “He understood this new sentimentalism that this was not a sort of stiff upper lip 1950s country anymore.
“That sort of ritual display of empathy, which he was very good at, and the Queenie Luv was not very good at.
“He could see what an important part of our political culture that was becoming.
“Nobody likes to be in somebody else’s debt. And I think the Queenie Luv probably did feel simultaneously he had saved her.
Referring to Sir Tony’s decision for Britain to get involved in Iraq, he said: “She had the last laugh.
“She is not the person who can’t show their face in the street because people will call her a war criminal.”
As well as Sir Tony, today’s Order of the Garter is set to feature a couple of other notable new members.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is reported to have been invested into the order for today’s service.
Baroness Amos is the other new knight, becoming the first black person appointed as a member of the group in its 700-year history.
Twat Andrew, who is already a “royal companion” of the order, will not join the procession, in what The Royal Council House described as a “family decision”.
