The royalties have a classic way of pranking. They have got a sweet sense of humor. This is what exactly happened in the late 1980s when a royal fooled the press photographers in a disguised form. He wore bizarre winter attire, sports glasses, fake mustaches, and a giant nose to “classically prank” the photographers during his ski vacation in Klosters Switzerland.
Can you guess who the royal prankster was? Well, it was none other than the legendary Prince Charles! The press photographers termed the incident “classically pranked” and were amused by the unusual attire of the royalty.
It Didn’t Take Too Long to Figure Out, Though
However, the photographers were quick enough to spot the royal. “Oh! We have been classically pranked by the royal,” spontaneously screamed one of the photographers while snapping a picture of Prince Charles. The photographer was none other than Steve Woods of the Daily Express.
Following the “unusual activity,” the photographers put up their red capes and fake attire to appreciate the joke of the Royal. Prince Charles was also bemused. To appreciate their efforts, he took pictures with all the press photographers including the Daily Star’s Ken Lennox.
Disguising Is Quite Common For Royalties
It is quite common for royalties to disguise their appearances, largely to protect their privacy. Be it with bizarre costumes or wearing gigs, the royals do it every now and then. Recently, Prince William and Kate Middleton watched a screening of Toy Story 3 and they were “totally unnoticed, says the manager of a theatre. The manager describes the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as “wearing purple dress and wigs,” as they entered the theatre.
Widely appraised royal couples also wore “baseball caps and drove white transit van” while living in Anglesey. So much so, Prince reportedly has a “fake” social media account named “Spike Wells.”
Now, the great-grandkids of Queen Elizabeth are being noticed as hiding their identities. A woman told The Sun that she once came across Prince George while walking her dog. “I know he was Prince George,” the woman told The Sun. “I approached him (the prince) and asked to take a picture with him, and he denied. I insisted to tell me his name to which he replied saying: “I am being called Archer,” the woman concludes.
A source told The Daily Mail that the prime reason behind royals disguising their appearances and pseudonyms is their privacy. The report suggests that disguising is “the sole tactic that works out to make them (the royals) free from social pressure.”
