Did you know that the Prince of Wales is about to become a pensioner? Yes, our monarch-in-waiting is hitting 65 this week.
Prince Charles has lived his entire life under the closest scrutiny and we have seen him transform from a shy, gawky teenager into the prominent world figure he is today.
He’s had his fair share of turbulent times, with his divorce from Diana and her subsequent tragic death in 1997.
But his refreshing honesty, hard work and quirky personality has endeared him to us over the years.
So I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Prince Charles many happy returns for his big birthday.
But somehow I don’t think he’ll be needing his new bus pass!
