"Princess Anne's" Speech
the opening of
The Hemp Olympix 2000
Saturday, 6th May.
Once again it is with great pleasure one find one-self back here in Orstralia at one's favourite town, Nimbin.
One is honoured to be in the company of such gracious Bundjalung Elders. [indigenous custodians of the land]
As many of you may remember, One's connection with Nimbin has been growing over the past 15 years. During this time, ones loyal subjects have invited one to open many of your seemingly important events, the people's opening of Nightcap National Park , the Aquarius 10 year later Celebration, where, one was declared "Queen of the Rainbow Region" . Which, knowing what a twit my brother Charles is, I thought only right and proper that I should finally have such power.
Sadly, this did not seem to be enough to bring about the changes one envisioned.
More recently when one was here to open the Visions of Nimbin Expo in 1998, one felt one had no choice but to declare oneself "Hempress of Gaia", in the hope that with all this extra power one could bring about the necessary changes for a better world.
Which brings me to the reason I've been asked here today.
family, the House of Windsor, has had a lo-o-o-ng history and involvement with mull, er, I
mean 'the herb', er...er.... I mean herbs . After all, over 200 years ago one of my
ancestors passed laws to legalise the practices of herbalism. Many of you may recall that
in fact my own great- great- grandmother, Queen Victoria, used the herb to relieve herself
of menstrual cramps, (although considering her love for Albert and the number of babies
she carried, one does wonder when she had time to have menstrual cramps). Could it be that
like others gathered here today she found it a perfect way to relax and let go of all the
pressures of being a Queen.
Therefore, encouraged by all the works done by my loyal subjects
in this rainbow region [ name given to Far North,NSW region ] I think it is time
for one to come out of the closet (so to speak) and, as the all powerful Empress of Gaia,
One encourages you all to do all you can to green our poor struggling planet.
Let the games, commence!!!
