LONDON - In a stunning new development, the Royal Mail is set to be investigated for a single missed delivery. Members of Parliament were shocked to hear about the mistake, as the Royal Mail has long been known for its punctuality and dependability.
"I can't believe this has happened," said one member of Parliament, who wished to remain anonymous. "The Royal Mail is a national institution, and we rely on it to deliver our mail efficiently and promptly."
The monarch themself was said to be outraged at the news, and has reportedly cancelled their Royal Mail subscription. "The King was appalled at the thought of someone else delivering the mail," said a palace insider, who wished to remain anonymous.
The missed delivery was said to be a letter from Prince Harry and their spouse, Meghan Markle, who are currently living in California. The letter was addressed to the monarch and was said to contain an update on the couple's new life in America.
The news of the missed delivery has sparked widespread outrage, with many members of the public taking to social media to voice their frustration. "I can't believe the Royal Mail can't even deliver a single letter," said one Twitter user. "This is an absolute disgrace."
Others, however, were more sympathetic to the Royal Mail's plight. "I think we need to give the Royal Mail a break," said another Twitter user. "They've been doing a great job for centuries, and one mistake doesn't make them terrible at their job."
In response to the public outcry, the Royal Mail has issued a statement apologising for the missed delivery. "We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience caused by this mistake," the statement read. "We are committed to delivering the highest standards of service, and we will be taking steps to ensure that such a mistake does not happen again."
While members of Parliament are calling for a full investigation into the matter, many are skeptical that anything will come of it. "This seems like a bit of an overreaction," said one MP. "It's not as if the Royal Mail is a criminal organization. They made a mistake, and they're sorry for it."
Overall, the mood among the public is one of disappointment, but also forgiveness. "We know the Royal Mail is capable of doing better," said one member of the public. "But we also know that mistakes happen, and we're willing to give them another chance."
