I have this, but I'm currently wrestling with what to do with it.

Mine would have been better as something like

"Prepare to take advantage of wind and terrible halitosis"

wouldn't it?

I had the "royal family" idea--maybe even "British royal family"--but I can't make a cryptic clue fit.

I'd never have got that without all the letters, I must admit; for me, its associations are overwhelmingly with the Tudor period.
