The hoodie controversy continues:

Prince Charles has risked criticism by launching a heartfelt defence of 'hoodies', condemning the way young people struggling with difficult upbringings are turned into media stereotypes.

The Prince of Wales was speaking to television presenters Ant and Dec in the first joint interview with his sons, William and Harry, to mark the 30th birthday of the Prince's Trust, the charity that Charles set up to mentor and financially support the needy young.

Maybe Prince Charles isn't that much of an inbred upper-class basketcase after all...

The sad or perhaps odd thing about Charlie is that he basically appears to be an inbred upper-class basketcase who also happens to be a sensitive soul underneath it.

Some (I shall name no names) are in hiding in Paris after hearing news of the palace putsch carried out by envious underlings.

Let's not forget that Charlie has personal experience of being turned into a media stereotype because of his ears.
