Prince Charles' New Official Portrait

LONDON - Prince Charles underwent a dramatic mental and physical transformation during a month at a sanatorium in Arles, France, Buckingham Palace announced today.

"During his stay in Haven d'Arles, Prince Charles read extensively from the works of John Paul Sartre and spent several hours discussing Albert Camus' The Stranger (somes translated as The Outsider) with fellow patient George W. Bush," the palace statement said.

"The Prince has accepted that life is absurd and that, as Camus said, religion is a form of philosophical suicide. It is absurd to contemplate, for instance, that some day he will be at the head of the Church of England."

The palace released a new official photo to accustom the public to the physical changes in the Prince.
