GOOD LORD, NO WONDER HE'S ALWAYS SO BLOODY GRIM-FACED

We know his former wife was fond of Duran Duran; but what of Prince Charles' musical taste? Sure, there was a time when all you had to do to raise a laugh on a TV show was throw the words "Prince Charles" and "The Three Degrees" out in the same sentence, but since then there might have been photo ops with The Spice Girls and the Princes Trust concerts, but little to suggest that Charles' CD collection was more than a dark, dark hole.

As, indeed, it turns out to be: Charles is a big fan of Leonard Cohen:

Describing Cohen as a wonderful chap, Charles said: "He's remarkable. The orchestration is fantastic and the words, the lyrics and everything. He is a remarkable man and he has this incredibly laid-back, gravelly voice."

Fair enough, Charles - but, please, don't have over for the coronation.
