The upcoming wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is big news and no editorial cartoonist can avoid NOT touching on big news. So how are British editorial cartoonists approaching the topic of the big wedding?
[Peter Brookes], who was last week named cartoonist of the year at the British Press Awards, admitted he had no concerns over offending royal enthusiasts.
“No, no no, absolutely not,” he said. “First of all you don’t have to worry about it, there’s no such thing as doing a cartoon in praise of somebody, you’re always knocking them down.
“The only thing I would say in balance is that it’s hardly their fault the country goes mad — and it’s two people for whom it’s the happiest day of their lives so you’re not going to do anything that’s personal.”
