The Castle Walls Have Ears
The man who would be king likes to listen in on tourists visiting his royal estate. That's the buzz from a BBC documentary that will air later this week on Prince Charles, according to a story on ABC News. Sometimes, he would have to lie on the floor with his ear pressed to the ground to pick up on some of the 30,000 visitors coming through his Gloucestershire home. Guess it would be tempting, if you are opening your doors to the public, to find out what they think. The heir to the throne also admits to talking to trees and plants in the garden, which he likens to his children. (Not his actual children -- more on those two later.) He says these "conversations" keep him sane -- even if it sounds crazy to the outside world.
