The Prince of Wales appeared to brush off the controversy surrounding his remarks in which he reportedly compared Russian leader Vladimir Putin with Adolf Hitler, and playfully threw a paper plane at assembled media crowds in Winnipeg, Manitoba last night.
Charles appeared in good spirits when he arrived at Stevenson Hangar in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with the Duchess of Cornwall and smiled as they were greeted by dozens of local students.
Charles and Camilla were given the chance to test the flight of their own paper planes by throwing them at a target, which was positioned next to number of photographers gathered to take their picture. He appeared to celebrate with a triumphant "yes" when he hit one of the cameramen.
Prince Charles compared the actions of Russian leader Vladimir Putin to Adolf Hitler, it has been claimed by a museum volunteer in Canada.
