Prince Charles stuns Glastonbury Festival with joke about immigrant Australian worker

June 24, 2010 | by | 0 Comments

Prince Charles raised a laugh at the Glastonbury Festival when he asked an Australian fan – if he was an illegal migrant worker.

The prince made the remark to a Nick Wardle, 22, during a visit of Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset.

Cheeky Nick approached the prince and said: ”Hello mate, I’m Nick from Australia. I’m working at the festival.”

Prince Charles replied: ”I would never have guessed. I hope you have a permit to work over here.”

A shocked Nick said to the prince: ”Yes – I do mate.”

The prince then left Nick to mingle with other festival goers.

Afterwards Nick said: ”The prince is a top bloke. I thought it was funny he asked me about my visa.

”For a second I thought he was going to lock me in the tower if I didn’t prove I wasn’t an illegal immigrant.”

A female fan, who witnessed the exchange, said: ”It was hilarious really, the prince looked this bloke up and down and basically accused him of being an illegal immigrant.

”The prince is definitely a chip off the old block – he obviously wants to make shock comments like Prince Phillip.”

Prince Charles toured the 900-acre farm as part of his roles as president of the charity Wateraid which Glastonbury is supporting this year.

The prince, a keen environmental campaigner, also met Greenpeace executive director John Sauven and given a tour of the enclosure’s stalls.
