Royal staff allegedly have been forced to call in pest control, after a mice infestation in the kitchen has become unbearable at Buckingham Place and the jokes wrote themselves.

The Queen is said to have been left "horrified", as workers have complained about regularly seeing the little furry creatures skid about the kitchen floors.

A source told The Sun newspaper earlier today:

Staff in the lower quarters especially have become quite used to seeing little brown mice tearing along the corridors. There isn't a huge amount that can be done.

The source might be referring to the fact that mice invasions are most common in the older building across London, and considering Buckingham Palace dates back to 1703, people shouldn't really be surprised, should they?

Either way, the news lent itself as a perfect opportunity to crack some jokes, and Twitter delivered.

While some thought the Brexit metaphor would be appropriate to use in this situation.

Others joked it was actually Boris Johnson, who might be looking for some new housing after a row with his girlfriend over the weekend.
