Charles and Camilla meet Dennis the Menace

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.

The royal visit featured, among other things, an encounter between the Prince and that classic comic strip character, Dennis the Menace, who lived up to his name.
