Prince In Print

‘THE Government started it all with the publication of its annual report, which unsurprisingly concludes every year that it is doing a damn fine job.

Prince Charles threw himself into his charity work from a young age

Now, Prince Charles is getting in on the act, publishing a 12-page glossy brochure, which will be sent to MPs, detailing his charity work.

It discloses, says the Telegraph, that the Prince Of Wales must raise more than £70m a year to support the 13 charities he has established.

And that, as a quick calculation tells us, means flogging an awful lot of jewel-encrusted dhows.

Not only that, but Prince Charles is patron or president of another 350 organisations, to which he devotes time.

No wonder he doesn’t have the energy to squeeze out his own toothpaste before he goes to bed at night.

MPs will no doubt take the brochure away with them on the summer holidays, but they shouldn’t feel downcast when they have finished it.

We are promised that this just the first episode of a trilogy, with future brochures focussing on the Prince’s role as heir to the throne and how he spends his £10m Duchy Of Cornwall income.

It is fair to say they are as eagerly awaited as the final two Harry Potter books.
