Today’s viewing: a surprisingly rousing video statement on Twitter by Arnold Schwartzenegger comparing this week’s rampage through the Capitol to Kristallnacht (though the Conan sword was a tad overdramatic) and episode 2 of Bridgerton on Netflix, a refreshingly light romance with a refreshingly diverse cast. (Have I refreshingly used enough adverbs?)
Hunky Duke of Hastings, played by Regé‑Jean Page, gets addressed as “Your Grace.”
You, too, can carry that title by ordering online from the sovereign principality of Sealand. I quote:
What You Will Receive With Your Duke/Duchess Title
Your Official Title Pack will include a Framed and Personalised Individual Noble Title Deed personally signed by Prince Regent Michael of Sealand, a personalised proof of Title Gold Card and all your Official Documents will be presented in an elegant folder. You will also receive an abundance of information about your new homestead; including information on the Principality of Sealand, the location and history of Sealand, photos of the Principality and its Royal Family, a complete World Fact book entry, a structure of the Government and biographies of Prince Roy, Princess Joan and Prince Regent Michael. You can get this with lord or lady titles and other noble titles as well, it is not purely exclusive to Dukes/Duchesses.
You can become a lord or lady for a mere £29.99, but to get grace into your title, you’ll have to pay £499.99. A keyring costs £2.99 at the Sealand Shop. (Not even a shoppe!)
