Prince Charles cries with laughter at papier mache Prince Harry
Prince Charles got the giggles when he was shown Prince Harry’s face made out of papier mache.
The 67-year-old royal couldn’t control his laughter when he saw the heads of the entire royal family made by Flitcham Church of England Primary School for the Sandringham Flower Show, and It was his 31-year-old son Harry’s that really made him laugh.
After coming face-to-face with the flame-haired face made from old newspaper, he joked: “If you turned the head upside down it would look the same with that beard.”
However, when the school’s head teacher, Mrs. Eden, did what he said, he added: “No, that’s cruel.”
The Prince of Wales was joined by his wife Duchess Camilla at the event who tried to hurry her husband along because he was chatting for so long with the teachers.
According to The Daily Telegraph newspaper, after meeting Charles and Camilla, Mrs. Eden said: “We’re a small school, there’s only about 70 of us and the younger children worked with the younger ones to make the display.
“We wanted to do something that would attract or interest the Royal Family so we decided on the papier mache heads.
“Prince Harry is my favourite, we all like Harry.”
Charles and Camilla’s visit to Sandringham Flower Show in Norfolk came after it was announced the prince has become a patron of Kew Gardens.
On his new title, he recently said: “I have always had the greatest affection and admiration for the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, so I could not be more proud and delighted to have been invited to become Patron of this great institution. Kew has had its roots planted deeply in British soil for more than 250 years, but has developed an international reputation as one of the world’s greatest botanic gardens, renowned for its scientific research and plant collections.”
Prince Charles and Camilla are regular visitors to the annual flower show and last year was not short of entertainment as he was nearly hit by an eagle last year.
