There is nothing worse than waking up with a horse head in your bed.
In the movie, The Godfather, Corleone's godson, Johnny Fontane, requested help from Corleone to get a role in a new movie. Tom Hagen was sent to Hollywood to meet with Jack Woltz, to ensure that Johnny got the role. After refusing, Woltz finds the severed head of his prized race horse, Khartoum, in bed as he awakes in the morning.
It's not a pretty picture in the best of circumstances.
Which brings us back to Prince Charles and his penchant for horses. As every Brit knows, after a very long public courtship of the Duchess of Cornwell, who some say was the Prince's first and only love, they finally found connubial happiness.
Blessed with a elongated face that horse lovers look for when picking their steeds, the Prince of Wales admired her strong carriage, healthy teeth and royal bloodline.
The Prince, who also has equine features, enjoys nothing more than waking up to his stable mate each morning, strapping a saddle on the Duchess and going for a brisk trot around the four poster.
