Anecdotes in journalism are usually dark jokes that never fails to delight its practitioners in any part of the world. There is a lovely one in today’s Independent of an encounter between Prince Charles and The Sun tabloid’s royal photographer, Arthur Edwards.
Edwards actually admires Charles. When he is walking along a public track near Highgrove with his long lens camera, he is confronted by the prince, who is on horseback.
Charles: “What are you doing!”
Edwards: “I’m just doing a job.”
Charles: “Some job.”
Arthur: “At least I’ve got a job.”
Exit Charles at a gallop.
