Charles stars in Beano royal comic
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall visited a notoriously unruly school - when they made a guest star appearance in the latest edition of the Beano.
Charles and Camilla have been immortalised as cartoons in the popular comic, which hits the shelves on Wednesday.
The special edition sees the royal couple take a trip to Beanotown's undisciplined Bash Street School, where they gently encourage the young terrors into better ways.
The couple, known in Scotland as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay, were presented with framed prints of their encounters with Smiffy and the gang, Dennis the Menace and Roger the Dodger during a visit to publishing company DC Thomson & Co in Dundee, where they started the firm's new printing press.
Beano editor Craig Graham said Charles and Camilla were thrilled to be featured in the long-running comic. He said: "They were absolutely delighted. Often we're a little bit nervous because we do, by the nature of things, have to caricature people. But they were both absolutely delighted with their likenesses and hugely impressed to be involved with characters like Dennis the Menace and Roger the Dodger."
Charles and Camilla are not the first royals to have been featured in the Beano. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have already made cameo appearances in the publication.
The new edition, billed as a "top secret guest issue", urges readers to turn the pages to find out who the special visitors to Beanotown are.
Mr Graham joked that he hoped the couple, who were presented with their prints by three young Beano readers, would put them "on the mantelpiece".
Later, the Duchess visited Dundee's Ninewells Hospital to learn about work being supported by three charities of which she is president. On her arrival at the hospital's clinical research centre Camilla was presented with a bouquet of flowers by Darcey McDonald, 11, a youth ambassador for the diabetes charity JDRF.
The primary six pupil and her family raised £120,000 for the charity after her father Neil, 43, scaled the summit of Mount Everest last May. Darcey, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of three, said: "She said the flowers matched her outfit and it was a pleasure to meet me. I was nervous but she was really nice."
