Another reason to be thankful they’re still our royals, too

A silly royal story in The Age with a startling revelation:

Prince [Charles] and his wife, Camilla, routinely take 14 aides on foreign tours, including valets, a doctor, an equerry and an artist who paints pictures of the highlights of the trips.

An artist who paints pictures of the highlights of the trips?

Man, the recession’s really hit them hard, if they have to leave the sculptor at home.

Ostentatious expenditure WIN.

  1. Artist or photographer. Photos are much more realistic, so must take longer to paint, and are therefore more expensive. Why are you criticising Charles for trying to cut costs? Will you republic supporters never be satisfied? What’s a pampered royal got to do to win you lot over? Sheesh!

  2. I think I’d like an equerry……if I knew what it did.

    And a painter? Don’t they everyones gone digital.
