The Keeper of the Privy Purse – which is a less smelly job than it sounds – has revealed the finances for the Royals for the last year, and among the costs was Prince Charles’ train journey from London to Port Talbot, which cost the taxpayer £20,000. He could have got the Megabus to Swansea and a taxi to Port Talbot for thirty quid.
A lot of people on Twitter made – basically – the same joke.
And that’s off-peak with a Railcard. https://t.co/rwo0VrcQat

Image how much that would have cost without his over sixties rail card.

I mean, the shortbread IS a bit pricey on board Virgin pendolinos. https://t.co/JSYNFyADS8

Some people could have saved him – or us – a few quid.
Mate, I would have come and picked you up for fuel money and a Maccy D on the way.
We would have had to have an awkward convo about your title on the bridge though 😐 https://t.co/dKPRtkk5qo
