The Royal pasty that's unhealthier than a Big Mac
This is London
He's a tireless champion of organic farming and healthy eating.
So it was perhaps no surprise when Prince Charles launched an attack on the fast-food industry.
Charles met nutritionist Nadine Tayara at a new centre to combat diabetes in Abu Dhabi set up by Imperial College London.
Miss Tayara was showing him how local schoolchildren were being encouraged to put fresh fruit and salads in their lunch-boxes each day instead of eating fast food, when he remarked: "Have you got anywhere with McDonald's? Have you tried getting it banned? That is the key."
But when he went as far as suggesting that McDonald's should be banned, it seemed that the prince had bitten off far more than he could chew.
He immediately laid himself open to charges of hypocrisy after it was pointed out that the company's signature Big Mac contains fewer calories, fats and salt than some products in his own organic Duchy Originals food range.
Eat healthy! Gas up the SUV and head to the nearest McDonalds!
Better yet, head off to Clearfield Pennsylvania and Denny's Beer Barrel Pub for the World Record burger Weighing in at 123 pounds.
