Prince Charles a chip off the old (HRH) block

Today, Prince Charles took the Mail on Sunday to the High Court for publishing extracts from his diary. The media is focussing on his comments surrounding the handover of Hong Kong from the UK to China, referring to "The Great Chinese Takeaway".

Personally, I think this shows a sharp humour, expressed in the context of a private piece of writing, from someone who rarely shows such character in public. Nothing worse than the banter you'll hear in pubs up and down the land. It's up to the Prince of Wales as to whether he has a grievance against the newspaper, but I think that this has shown a side to his personality that I quite like. I hesitate to write it, but it's good to see a hint of the Prince Philip about him! A chip off the old block after all. Good for you.
