Fry Raises Royal Flush With Strip Poker Joke
British royal PRINCE CHARLES was left red-faced last night (02OCT06) when cheeky actor STEPHEN FRY joked about enjoying a game of strip poker with him. Fry addressed a packed cinema audience at the London premiere of new movie THE HISTORY BOYS, where the Prince had asked him to introduce a short advertisement for his charity The Prince's Trust. But a reluctant Fry revealed: "There were only two of us who could have spoken tonight. We decided on a game to decide who - the winner got to sit and enjoy the film without a speech. "He (Charles) suggested polo. In the end we settled on strip poker. He saw my low pair and for the first time I understood what a royal flush was." Prince Charles was joined by his wife CAMILLA, DUCHESS OF CORNWALL.
