What's Prince Charles given up for Lent?

The Prince of Wales waved away the offer of a free chocolate brownie, as he re-opened Borough Market today, saying that he'd given them up for Lent.

But the Duchess of Cornwall happily accepted a Valentine's gift of a large chocolate heart decorated with the words "love from Borough Market".

She told chocolatier Hayleigh Bazelya: "I will have no problem munching my way through that."

Prince visits Borough Market

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have officially re-opened Borough Market. Most of the stalls had to move out two years ago, because of rail construction work, but they're now back in business.
