Charles' Astonishing Media Rant

British royal PRINCE CHARLES was humiliated on TV yesterday (31MAR05) when his scathing attack on the media was picked up by microphones and broadcast to millions of open-mouthed viewers.

The heir-to-the-throne attended a photo call with his two sons PRINCE WILLIAM and PRINCE HARRY near the ski slopes in Klosters, Switzerland, where the royal trio are currently holidaying.

Growing increasingly frustrated with the awkward questions being thrown at them, Charles leaned towards his sons and launched into a whispered assault on the journalists present, saying, "These bl*ody people. I hate doing this."

And when Charles spotted British reporter NICHOLAS WITCHELL in the crowd, his mood worsened: "I can't bear that man. I mean, he's so awful, he really is."

Unbeknownst to Charles, the microphones picking up their responses were also powerful enough to record the quietest of sounds, and within minutes his rant was aired on small screens across the UK.

Charles has been subjected to relentless media scrutiny in recent months as he prepares for his marriage to CAMILLA PARKER BOWLES in Windsor, England, on 8 April (05).
