Apologies to The Guardian but this is simply much, much, too good not to steal.

Mark Oliver makes great play of the Prince of Wales's comments and sarcastically compares them to Magna Carta, the Civil War and the Bill of Rights implying some sort of republican motives to these historic events.

But a bit of analysis of events will show that neither the barons at Runymede, nor Cromwell (at least initially) nor the drafters of the Bill of Rights wished to overthrow the monarchy. They simply sought to rein in rulers who they percieved to be out of touch and acting in their own interests rather than those of the people they were sworn to serve.

Nowadays the monarchy has no real power, the real rulers are the government. Personally, I think it would be a splendid irony if a member of the Royal Family were to become a figurehead of a new Peasants' Revolt against an out-of-touch and self-serving governing elite.

If you have Photoshop, you could add enhancements. Mickey Mouse ears would be a start.
Oh and you could erase his sober suit and tie and replace it with one of those Code Pink negligees....
