Prince Charles defects to Cuba

THE Prince of Wales has announced he is leaving Britain to become the new monarch of Cuba, where life is not as desperate. 

Charles and Camilla are visiting Cuba for the first time and the Prince admitted he has fallen in love with this quaint little old-fashioned island so like home except with sensible political leadership.

He added: “It’s Britain, but the weather’s fantastic and the people aren’t such whinging bores. Why wouldn’t I stay?

“At first I felt a moment’s disquiet at the thought of being a puppet ruler of a regime which allows its people no say in their own future, before realising I’d just described the UK.

“And I get to be King now. Now, not in five years or ten years or 20 years. Right away.”

President Miguel Diaz-Canel said: “He is vaguely left-wing, has an army uniform and a chestful of unearned medals, and hates America. What’s not to like?”
