Putin compares Charles to Anthea Turner

VLADIMIR Putin has compared Prince Charles to Anthea Turner because he is a ‘fragrant, middle-aged woman with no power’.

The Russian president thanked the Prince for comparing him to Hitler and said that like Turner, the heir to the throne was ‘every man’s idea of the perfect English housewife’.

He added: “Like Turner he is part of a great British institution, albeit one with far less power and influence than Blue Peter.

“And like Turner he had a troubled first marriage with his personal life splattered all over the tabloids, before he found true love.

“I just hope Charles and his husband Camilla have a more enduring relationship than Anthea and Grant Bovey.

“But most of all when I think of Prince Charles, I think of someone who was born to wear an apron and keep my house clean and tidy.

“I sometimes dream of being greeted at the front door by a lovely, demure English woman like Prince Charles, when I come home from my busy job of being a real man with actual power.”

President Putin said Prince Charles could ‘take a leaf out of Anthea’s book’ and make himself more relevant by appearing in the next series of Dancing on Ice.
