Prince Charles’ giant wooden carrot is stolen from his farm
Britain’s Prince Charles has had a giant wooden carrot stolen from his Duchy Home farm in Gloucestershire.
The 66-year-old royal has enlisted the help of the police after his 100kg orange vegetable was snatched from the entrance of the estate in South West England last week.
A spokesperson for Clarence House said: “It works on an honesty box system. There was a carrot, advertising that the stall was there and it was stolen on Halloween night.”
The law enforcement officers are yet to catch or discover a lead as to who is responsible for the crime but has confirmed their investigation is still ongoing at the moment.
A police report, obtained by the Daily Telegraph newspaper, stated: “Between 1600 hrs on 31st October, and 1000 hrs on 1st November 2015, by the roadside on Duchy Home Farm, Shipton Moyne, Tetbury, unknown offenders have stolen a 100kg wooden carrot. This would have needed two persons and at least a van. If any persons saw anything suspicious and have any information, please call police on 101.”
Meanwhile, Charles – who is also known as the Prince of Wales – turned the estate into an all-organic farm in 1985.
Since then, Home Farm has become a successful and viable working business as well as a flagship for the benefits of an organic and sustainable form of agriculture.
