Royal Beano

In sharp contrast to Turkey, Great Britain has the freedom to enjoy a good lampoon of folk higher up the social scale than a piddling prime minister. If you haven't grabbed your copy of this week's Beano, prepare for a royal edition featuring the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. They visit Bash Street School, where Camilla opens a new library and Charles advocates an allotment for the kids. This edition arose from a visit by the royal couple to publisher DC Thomson's Dundee head office, where they were greeted by Dennis the Menace (CLICK). There have been so many ropy royal portraits recently, it makes a change to see a good likeness. Well done, that cartoonist.
