Watch Prince Charles give this interviewer a right royal roasting!

Talk about painful telly! This classic clip shows a disastrous Charles interview on an Australian TV show in 1977 – and now Prince Charles is getting his own back on the fumbling interviewer with this amusing clip:

Prince Charles says in the clip: “There is an old showbusiness saying ‘never work with animals or children’. But no one prepared me for Molly Meldrum. Was it really 40 years ago? It only seems like yesterday. I wish it were tomorrow – I’d cancel it!”
