Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, declined an invitation to a read-through of an upcoming episodes of "The Simpsons," citing a busy schedule during their Los Angeles trip, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
William and Kate received an invitation written by Homer Simpson, who promised to be "amusing, my wife will be gracious, my daughters will be charming, and my son will be duct-taped to the boiler in the basement.” The show invited the couple after reading that Prince William was a fan of the show as a boy, the article adds.
"The Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean said the show isn’t done with royalty yet, promising to invite more to the show. "Our next choice is Prince Harry, and then we’ll go to one of Fergie’s kids,” Jean said. “We’ll work our way down.”
