Prince Charles makes impromptu pub visit
Jan 22, 2013, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Prince Charles stunned pub regulars in Liverpool when he joined them for a pint.
The heir to the throne was walking outside the Wellington Vaults - which has peeling paint and boarded-up windows - in Toxteth, an inner city area of Liverpool, when locals shouted at him to come in and join them for a drink, and he started walking towards the establishment.
Charles was strolling around outside the pub following a visit to The Florence Institute, a community centre known locally as The Florrie, which has re-opened following a Â£6.4 million Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
Gaynor Jones, a barmaid at the Wellington Vaults, told the Daily Mail newspaper: 'We were just watching Prince Charles coming out of The Florrie and some people outside shouted, 'Charlie, come over here for a pint.'
'He just started laughing and then walked over and came in!'
Charles then shared a stout with Denise Bernard, chairwoman of The Florence Institute, but she was worried about getting him drunk.
After he asked her whether they should share, she replied: 'Oh my God, Prince Charles is going to be bevied because of me! This has been the most exciting day of my life since having my baby.'
