Prince Charles was officiating in the opening of a small theatre in Shepton Mallet. He was dressed in his usual tweed suit but had a full vixen on his head complete with head, legs and tail.
One of the theatres patrons discretely asked Charles what was the strange headgear all about.
"Ah, yes" said Charles, "I was speaking to mummy this morning before we set off and she was asking me where I was going today. I said I was going to open a theatre in Shepton Mallet. Oh yes, she said, wear the fox hat."
