Royal fans turned up at Asda Arnold after hearing that the future King was opening the store – but it was actually one of our colleagues named Prince Charles!
Baker, Prince Charles, who has worked for Asda for 25 years, cut the ribbon to unveil the new look store following a refurbishment. He has worked at Asda Arnold for 15 years and had the privilege of cutting the ribbon as he’s the longest serving colleague at the store.
Once the store realised that people were expecting to see the heir to the throne they had a bit of fun with it and got Prince Charles a gold crown to wear for the opening.
Prince Charles told the Daily Mail: "It was an honour to open the store, I enjoyed it and it has made my day.
“When I phone people up and I say my name is Prince Charles they say ‘yeah you are joking’ and they put the phone down. I try again and they say okay and put the phone down again. When I go to the bank or anywhere else I have to show my driving licence or my passport all the time.
“I would love to meet the real Prince Charles and tell him how much trouble his name has caused me but in a funny way.”
