Jerry Seinfeld went on the British program Daybreak to criticize the royal family and their upcoming “circus act” of a royal wedding on April 29th, the Daily Mail reports.
“You know, it’s a dress-up. It’s a classic English thing of let’s play dress-up. Let’s pretend that these are special people. OK, we’ll all pretend that – that’s what theatre is. That’s why the British have the greatest theatre in the world. They love to dress up and they love to play pretend.”
Seinfeld best clean up his anti-royal babble since he’ll be doing a stand-up show at London’s O2 Arena June 3rd. While many Brits don’t support the monarchy, they don’t take too kindly to Americans badmouthing a thousand-year old tradition. Daybreak co-host Adrian Chiles took offense to Seinfeld’s remarks. “I’ll join in on any of that stuff, if it’s a Brit doing it. But I can’t bear Americans criticising the Royal family. It turns me into a Royalist!” Chiles then added, “He’ll be doing that show from the Tower of London, never mind the O2.”

Seinfeld, hush. You may not like it, but we’ve got enough international problems with Jersey Shore going over to Italy. Just smile and practice your best bow should Prince Phillip come after you June 3rd. The Duke might be as old as the sun, but he’ll give you a whatfor. Although, the old chap behaved himself on April 1st while accompanying Queen Elizabeth II to visit their grandson, Prince William who is a search and rescue pilot stationed in RAF Valley (North Wales).
Speaking of the royals, did any of you catch the jelly bean that resembles Catherine Middleton? According to The Telegraph, it’s supposed to fetch as much as $1000 on Ebay.
