With the approach of Brexit, whenever that may be, UK residents with less than 110% proof of British nationality are being asked to provide more information.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was born in the UK, lived all her life in the UK and is recognised as the one true and only British sovereign.
However, she has been refused British citizenship and “settled status” and asked to provide “additional information” about her past and current circumstances.
A Home Office spokesperson was keen to point out that Her Majesty had not actually been “refused”.
They added: “It’s Her Majesty’s German ancestry. It’s proved a bit of a stumbling block particularly after the fracas, you know, that kicked off in 1939. We just need to see a few documents. At the moment there is insufficient evidence to approve Her Majesty’s application.
“She may have a horse and carriage and live in a big house and all that but we need more information to prove that she is British and has been resident here for at least the last 85 years.
“Her Majesty will also need to recite the words to ‘God Save the Queen’ – or does she sing ‘God save Me’?” They chuckled nervously.
“She also needs to demonstrate proper use of the knife and fork as you would in any restaurant where the starter costs more than £65.
“It’s standard practice,” they added.
“After all, we really must ensure that everyone coming into the UK to stay as resident is familiar with our culture and way of life.
A spokesperson for the Palace said: “I’m sure Her Majesty has all the relevant and necessary documentation the Home Office requires.
“In the event of an insurmountable obstacle, Her Majesty has an estate in Coburg and would, I am sure, be happy to leave Britain to the bureaucratic Brits.”
