Rod Keeps The Prince Waiting

Rod Stewart has become increasingly regal as the years have hurried on, so it was strangely unsurprising to hear that the singer and his wife, Penny Lancaster, left Prince Charle waiting when they arrived ten minutes late to a meeting with Charles yesterday, blaming London traffic for the long journey.

Stewart afterwards told a reporter from the Daily Telegraph: "We have a place over in Wapping and it took us three-quarters of an hour to get here…I wish I had my own police escort, I would always be on time."
