Theresa May had to charter a plane for her recent trip to the Middle East as Prince Charles had booked the official Royal Air Force jet, it has emerged.
Ok, this story made me chuckle, sort of...
And before I say any more, I should say that I have republican leanings of the diet coke variety! Meaning that I don't have strong feelings either way, but I would prefer that once the Queen dies, the country took a different direction away from the royal family.
Back to the story, Charlie had already booked the official plane for his "business" around Europe. Theresa May, who is this country's prime minister, had to book a charter flight for her business in the Middle East.
Now, call me anti-royalist if you like, but shouldn't the business of this country's prime minister trump that of a prince? Why couldn't he go the charter route instead, regardless of who booked first?
