Charles 'prison' comment denied

Clarence House has robustly denied a claim made by an aide of Charles to Time magazine that the prince believes becoming king would be akin to "prison".

A Clarence House spokesman said:

This is not the Prince of Wales's view and should not be attributed to him as he did not say these words.

The Prince has dutifully supported the Queen all his life and his official duties and charitable work have always run in parallel.
