Prince Charles and the Duchess of
Cornball Cornwall traveled to Philadelphia over the weekend to promote youth development, urban renewal, and environmental stewardship. Which makes perfect sense because Bossy always thinks of Philadelphia when she thinks of these things.
In the first of several scheduled appearances, the Royal couple listened while a Park Ranger explained the history of the Liberty Bell and its significance as a symbol of Independence. In a rather embarrassing moment Camilla Parker Bowles Windsor reached out and cracked it.
Then it was on to West Philadelphia where the couple met with members of the city’s prestigious Mural Arts Program – and where Prince Charles spilled a glass of milk on the portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King. Oops!
A reception at the Constitution Center followed, where the couple walked among the life-size statues of those present during the signing of the United States Constitution. Unable to read the accompanying placards, Camilla filched James Madison’s glasses.
And finally a stop in Fairmount Park, where the Royals bolted up the Art Museum steps and took turns punching each other in the solar plexus.

Glad I visited Philadelphia earlier in the month.

Where are her hats?! Not one?! Not even one picture was taken with her in some huge head topper? What a rip off.

Nice one on the MLK joke. I can’t imagine it’s very fun for the royals to see stuff about the American Revolution. “And here’s where our ragtag army of tax dodgers kicked your inbred royal asses!”

I must have missed Rockys 1-5 somewhere. I think I am better off without them.
