ASDA abdication! Prince Charles is revealed as supermarket bakery worker
A supermarket bakery worker causes a royal ruckus wherever he goes – because his name is PRINCE CHARLES.
Dad-of-five Prince, 60, has to deal with constant confusion from everyone he meets when he relays his royal name.
Sadly, supermarket worker Prince’s career is not as glamourous as his regal namesake’s – as he spends his days manning the bakery at his local Asda in Arnold, Nottingham.
And the West Indian, who moved to the UK from Granada when he was 10, is forced to frequently prove his name is real by showing his passport.
Prince, from Nottingham, said: “It’s always difficult when I’m calling people, they ask my name, and when I tell them they usually just hang up.
“I think most companies think it’s a prank call, only when I’m in front of someone and can show them proof do they believe me.
“I get asked to prove who I am all the time, not just with the bank, but whenever I meet new friends too.”
Prince has no idea why his parents chose the name and does not know whether it was a deliberate nod to the Prince of Wales.
He said: “My Dad was in the army, and he married my mum in Grenada, West Indies, where I was born.
“We moved to the UK when I was 10 years old.
“I never found out why they called me Prince Charles.”
Funnily enough, Prince said girlfriend Lorraine Williams, 52, a support worker, has always introduced him with his full name, and when meeting her parents, they didn’t question it.
He admitted he is a big fan of the royal family – he always watches any weddings that are happening, and keeps up to date with the recent baby royals that have been born in the last few years.
And the dad-of-five has certainly taken his name in good spirits throughout his life.
But surprisingly, Prince has never used the name to his advantage – which surely would have secured him a space in any busy restaurant in the UK.
Prince said: “People don’t say as many jokes now because they’re used to it, but they still poke fun.
“I always expect comments but usually people look past it.
“I would love to meet the real Prince Charles one day.”
