The Queen cancelled Prince Andrew’s birthday party – our 9 favourite takedowns

We all remember those threats from when we were little – or from making them to our own children – “You’d better start behaving or I’m cancelling your birthday party.” Well, it seems that Prince Andrew got himself onto the sticky end of the concept after his mum, the Queen, pulled the plug on his big 60th birthday bash. We can imagine how that went …

“Well, Andrew, I’m downgrading your birthday celebration to tea and cake with the family to teach you a lesson about hanging around with sex traffickers …and if you do it again, I’m taking back York.”

Of course, Twitter wasn’t going to let that one slide …and the mockery began.
