Ah. The house of windsor, better known as saxe-coburg-gotha, perhaps?
Well, there is a skit on UFO's in advert form over here. Man and woman
with deep south accents discuss bright lights to camera, style a la
documentary. Eventually a peopleswagon golf turns up.
Then there are the ghosts and ghouls. I have Auto route uk, and the
options include 'sites of ghostly interest', or some such. Myself I
prefer the real ale pubs. The hallucinations are far superior,
especially if the landlord is in the habit of adding nutmeg to the brew.
