It's a right royal snub.
He has said thanks but no thanks to rubbing noses with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they, plus baby George, honour his country with a visit.
King T said: "I'm not some carnival act to be rolled out at the beck and call of anyone."
I also see that he, unlike the Windsors, is elected.
Meanwhile, cushiest job going must be that of a royal protection officer.
All those lovely freebies at our expense, including accompanying Wills and Kate on their current and latest luxe jaunt to the Maldives.
But, hey, it's hard work being royal and Kate hasn't been away for, oh, all of three weeks.
