The last will and testament of Queen Elizabeth's consort, Philip, will be kept secret for 90 years to protect her "dignity and standing". Whatever indignities and unstandings therein lie were permanently sealed in a secret and private hearing months ago by Sir Andrew McFarlane, the most senior judge in the family courts, at which no party was represented other than those of Philip's estate and the state itself.
"I accepted the submission that, whilst there may be public curiosity as to the private arrangements that a member of the Royal Family may choose to make in their will, there is no true public interest in the public knowing this wholly private information," he said.
If there is no public interest in the wholly private information of his will, why is there a public interest in the wholly private information of anyone's will?
I hope you all got what you wanted, you lucky bastards!
