Prince Charles came to Phoenix, Arizona for an official visit. Mayor Gordon and other top officials were waiting at the airport as the royal jet arrived. Charles stepped out wearing a fur hat, with four little paws dangling down at each corner and a long bushy tail at the back. However, his hosts were too polite to say anything about it, and they took him for a tour of the city.
That night there was an official banquet to honor Charles. The wine flowed freely, and after a while Phil Gordon plucked up his courage and said to Charles, "That's a very unusual hat, your royal highness."
"Yes, it is rather fetching, isn't it," Charles replied. "Last night one said to one's mama, 'I say, mummykins, one shall be visiting Phoenix tomorrow, what should one wear?' Mama replied, 'Phoenix? Wear the fox hat.'"
