Prince Charles’ Funniest Quotes Have Us Rolling On The Floor

Prince Charles might be the heir apparent to the British throne, but the things he says have us questioning how royal he really is. Not known to mince words, the Prince has become just as famous for his noble lineage as he has for his colorful language. Perhaps waiting for his turn on a throne since 1958 has turned him cynical. Whatever the reason may be, it’s clear he’s not worried about his public image, choosing instead to laugh off his mistresses and talk to his food (don’t worry, we’ll get to that). Here’s the best of the worst things Prince Charles has ever said.

During an interview about gardening in 1986, Prince Charles said, “I just come and talk to the plants, really – very important to talk to them, they respond I find.” We’ve never known plants to be strong conversationalists, but maybe we’re wrong.

What exactly do the plants say, though? They don’t have vocal chords. They could ruffle their fronds together to make noise, maybe? We’re never going play “she loves me, she loves me not” without feeling guilty now. If the Prince is right, then plants have feelings!
