Prince Charles was patently not in the mood today. When fielded a banal question by royal correspondant Nicholas Witchell, he answered tersley.
Then under his breath, but picked up by the sensitive microphones present he moaned to William and Harry about having to do the photocall. This was apparently a gaff, and the press have made a great deal of fuss about it.
But… does anyone really care that Prince Charles dislikes journalists? The media sure, because they are journalists, but I feel with many people he may have improved their opinions.
Add that to the fact that Nicholas was reportedly not well liked amongst his colleagues following his breaking of the NUJ strike in the 80s to present nearly every BBC news bulletin going, hence his being sidelined into the role of “Royal Corespondant”.
