Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall (Prince Charles and Camilla to most of us Americans) got a special treat recently. They visited the set of Doctor Who with Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman as tour guides! Said Smith, “Showing them how to fly the TARDIS was a real treat and something I never thought I would be doing when I first took on the role. The Prince of Wales said he remembers watching the show when he was 15 and seemed very knowledgeable on the Who history, so it’s nice to think they are watching.” Watch Prince Charles get up close and personal with a dalek above, then hit the jump to see the couple flying the TARDIS.
“Meeting The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall today was such an honor,” said Coleman. “The Prince was particularly interested in the mechanics of how the TARDIS works and the storyline for the upcoming 50th anniversary special, but I didn’t give too many secrets away.”
Damn, not even the Prince of Wales has the influence to get those highly-classified secrets, huh?
