Bexley man pens royal satire

PUBLISHED: 10:05 24 August 2012

A former Bexley stand-up comedian used his commute into London to pen a satirical book on the Royal Family.

David Eckhoff, 50, works as a public relations manager and wrote Royal Factor on his journeys to and from his Wansunt Road home.

The e-book, available to buy for Kindles, sees a fictional Prime Minister create a television show to replace the Royal Family with new found celebrities.

But the stunt backfires when the competition is won by a family more interested in the high life than running the country.

David says there is a serious message underlying the humour.

“The Royal Family are great entertainment but whether we should be paying for them is another matter.

“There should be some form of regulation into how they behave and what they do. Prince Harry is a prime example of that.”
