LONDON – All rise for Prince Zaphod Beeblebrox.
The royal baby who sprung from the loins of Prince William and subsequently the womb of Kate Middleton will be graced with the name Zaphod Beeblebrox. The name comes from the royal couple’s mutual love of HitchHiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which was a radio drama, tv show before becoming a film, sometime I don’t know a few years ago. Google it.
They wanted us to go for something more regal, but I told them all to shut it. Being royal you are allowed to do that. Both me and Kates love Douglas Adams and so we were either going to name him Dirk Gently or Zaphod. And if you think about it, it’s actually quite deep, because just as he will need a public face and a private face, so Zaphod had two actual heads.
What about the news that you’re actually calling him Prince Louis?
It’s horseshit. What kind of name is Louis? We’re not French.
