Our prince – yes our prince, we’re still in the Commonwealth, I’m afraid – was in Lahore recently and the residents of the city, never ones to want to miss out on a party, really wanted to be invited.
But most of even the crème de la crème wasn’t allowed in, of course. They should take solace in the fact that even cabinet heavy hitters like Brig (retd) Ijaz Shah, Khusro Bakhtiar, Pervez Khattak weren’t let in, what to speak of Firdous Ashiq Awan or Fawad Chaudhry.
Some of the posh set still wanted to let it be known that they were present and posted photos of commoners (non-Royals) on to their social media accounts.

One wonders if the recently sacked (from T20 and Tests) cricket captain Sarfraz Ahmed also used the same excuse for lacklustre performance.
