The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall will make guest appearances in a special VIP edition of The Beano, which goes on sale this weekend.

Duke and Duchess of Rothesay, as they are known in Scotland, were in Dundee today to start the new printing press at DC Thomson & Co where the Beano is produced.

However the visit did not go according to royal protocol as Dennis the Menace snubbed the prince:

The special edition comic will see Prince Charles teaching the The Bash Street Kids about organic food and healthy eating and sees the royal take part in a monumental school dinner food fight

Meanwhile, Her Royal Highness will appear in a Dennis the Menace and Gnasher strip, visiting Beanotown to open the new school library and highlighting the importance of reading.

We are thrilled to welcome The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay onto the pages of The Beano. We’ve had a blast creating their characters and storylines. It’s not every day you get to write Their Royal Highnesses into The Beano – we hope they like it!
