Prince Charles Celebrates 64th Birthday, Clears Up Rumors
(LONDON) — Prince Charles celebrated his 64th birthday Wednesday by meeting Dori the Dwarf from the movie The Hobbit and dispelling some old rumors.
Charles met Dori during a tour of Weta Workshop, a conceptual design company in New Zealand. He was in New Zealand to celebrate the queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
During the trip, the website for the prince of Wales and the duchess of Cornwall was updated with a FAQ section that answers 25 questions — and addresses some rumors — about the couple.
As to the story that Charles has seven eggs boiled each morning and picks the one that he determines to be the right consistency, the website says he has never done it.
It also debunks the notion that Charles disdains all modern architecture, saying he “has been the Patron of several contemporary architects.”
Additionally, the FAQ section aims to set the record straight on Charles’ views on alternative medical treatments as well as why he is driven in a Bentley even though he is an environmentalist.
