How wonderful for the Empress to have a time away and chance to speak English in a relaxed environment.

I'm sure the UK is picking up the tab for their fish & chips. Don't worry.

It’ll only be a 50p bag o’ chips anyway. Too many tories with their hands in the till.

4 people lacking a sense of humour. Are you Royalists? Or just Brits in general? You need to loosen up. It’s just a joke, OK?

I am sure we can stretch to a steak & kidney pudding and a pint of ale for each of them, followed by spotted dick and custard!

All joking aside this is part and parcel of the ongoing and developing relationship between the two countries that can only of benefit to both in these times.

I don't think it's the Brits. Just some people are incapable to think laterally & confuse the subject of a joke with the target of a joke. I thought it was quite self deprecating on the part of the UK. Maybe because I didn't mention a battered sausage; it made it too obscure. Battered sausage would surely exceed the meal budget however.
