image for Camilla's beaver: confusion in French press, embarrassment for Prince Charles
Prince Charles - lost in translation

Camilla's daring choice of hat, as reported on this website recently, has created embarrassing headlines for her husband in the French press after a basic translation error.

Unfortunately, during the state visit a source close to Camilla was asked by a French reporter what she was wearing in her hat. The reply was a beaver, a word which the reporter did not immediately recognise. Whilst writing up the story a couple of hours later the French reporter asked an American colleague what a beaver was. Given the ribald nature of journalistic badinage, the yank obviously thought the frog was referring to a lady's private area and gave a fairly explicit response.

Hence the next morning the french press were leading with "Camilla attends State visit of President Sarkozy with an old c**t". Prince Charles took immediate offence.

He cheered himself up with an ice cream.

Make Everyman's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
