From bemoaning “monstrous carbuncles” to praising Geri Haliwell’s “wonderfully friendly greeting”, Prince Charles has had plenty to say over the years. Prince Charles’ penchant for writing to politicians to voice his concerns over the horrors of contemporary architecture and threats to the environment is well known. In the book, “The Prince Charles Letters” compiled by David Stubbs in 2011, it reveals a collection of letters written personally by the Prince of Wales to a variety of notables, including one penned to former Prime Minister, David Cameron.
Charles’ letter to Cameron suggests the Prince was offering advice upon his recent arrival to Number 10, by recalling a childhood memory that the former Prime Minister reminded the Prince of.
In the letter, dated May 12, 2010, Charles described an incident during his first term at Gordonstoun, it was the school’s Christmas cabaret when another student, who also went by the name David, began to sing “Food, Glorious Food” from the musical adaption of Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist”.
According to the letter this “horrified” Charles as the Prince of Wales recalls how “David” was “whisked away for good” after receiving a “roughing up” by the fourth formers in the boys lavatories.

In the letter, it reads: “As a public schoolboy I need hardly remind you, Mr Cameron, that no one likes a chatty little swine, especially a new bug – but a singing one?”

The Prince reveals he likes David Cameron’s views on compassionate Conservatism, as he was “presiding over a kingdom in which one’s subjects do not suffer bullying, ear-tweaking, ragging or urination in lunch boxes”.
“At a glance, I can see that had you gone to Gordonstoun, you would have been what we called a ‘roastee’, not a ‘roaster’,” according to Charles.
