Shock, utter amazement and some understanding has spread through the nation like wild-fire as Prince Charles, the next-in-line to the throne, has revealed that he has same-sex tendencies, and has had for quite a while.
The Prince admitted to reporters, "I cannot stand it any longer, I cannot hold it back, my life is a lie, and my mother needs to step aside, abdicate the throne, because she isn't half the queen that I will be!"
Further investigation has brought to light, that Camilla Parker-Bowles, is actually a bloke from Stoke-on-Trent in drag.
Charles' youngest son, Prince Harry, has commented that he wasn't in the least bit surprised, and that he was actually quite relieved, because he was ashamed because he thought that his step-mom was the ugliest woman on earth, and he know realizes that actually "she" was quite an average looking guy.
The queen has refused to comment, and was heard by palace servants saying to Prince Philip, that she now believed him, and that she now knows it wasn't him, that was stealing her undergarments all this time.
Members of Prince Charles' polo team, was equally shocked, an anonymous player commented: "Now I finally know why Charles was so adament that we throw the soap to each other in the shower after games."
The prince was last seen singing Abba songs, and dancing down the street, arm in arm with his "wife" Camilla "Bob Johnson" Parker-Bowles.
