I mean, seriously Prince Charles, if you can suffer through the torture of a first class commercial flight to save a little jet fuel, can’t ya make a few phone calls to keep bears from being gunned down and their families orphaned for some ornamental hats? I promise that the Japanese tourists videotaping the changing of the guard won’t know the difference.
