Queen Elizabeth is 88 years old, and nobody expects her to get with the times, technologically speaking. We’re never going to have the Queen updating her Facebook or Twitter, and we’re obviously never going to see her using hookup applications like Tinder and Grindr [thank God for that]. However, there’s been some new concern over the usage of Tinder and Grindr among the Palace staff, and that is concerning to both the Queen and the royal security.
See, if Buckingham Palace’s live-in staff are continuing to use Tinder and Grindr to sneak in sleazy one-night hookups, that will undoubtedly compromise palace security. When people are in a sex haze, they tend to forget their better judgment, and there’s no guarantee that all these Tinder and Grindr hookups are legitimate.
Secret Hookup between Prince Charles and Camilla-Parker-Bowles back in the day
In fact, the former head of royal security, Dai Davies, spoke to the Daily Mail [via The Royalist] about the security breach and mentioned that the royals have always had a problem with overnight guests coming to the palace, and it’s ‘made a complete mockery of the security structure’. Well, duh – for all Buckingham Palace keeps preaching about how secure they are, if random ‘sleazy’ hookups can keep sneaking in, then how secure are they? Not to mention, the royals have historically had some major controversies start this way. For example, Camilla Parker-Bowles and Prince Charles’ cheating affair on Princess Diana. Not through Tinder or Grindr, but with Prince Charles secretly meeting Camilla Parker-Bowles during their decades-long affair and gossip about it being leaked to the press.
Queen Elizabeth is rightly considering the option to ban and forbid all communication devices on the palace campus, but that would make day-to-day running too complicated since this isn’t 1959. The Queen will just have to deal with it, and hope that the press doesn’t get any more incriminating evidence surrounded the hookups being snuck into Buckingham Palace – especially is the person sneaking them in is a royal [cough, Prince Harry, cough].
