US Vice President Mike Pence appeared to be snubbed by Prince Charles recently when he briskly moved past him. The Royal has sought to quickly stiffle speculation as to what happened by explaining why he chose not to shake the Vice President’s hand.
“One finds him to be a dick.”
The heir to the throne emphasized that he was not above shaking the hands of people he has strong reason to dislike, just not in this case.
“I happily shook the hand of Gerry Adams even though the IRA murdered my favourite uncle. But press flesh with Mike Pence? No fucking way, mate.”
The uncharacterically frank commentary by the Prince has taken people by surprise, though he says they shouldn’t be.
“I’m over seventy. I’ve been waiting to fulfill my life’s purpose for over 50 years. Half the world thinks I’m ridiculous. So who gives a monkey’s?”
Royal watchers say the incident has led to a huge increase in Charles’s popularity, especially on social media.
“Move over Meghan & Harry – the gangsta Prince has arrived.”
