Prince Charles deserves our pity. Besides having big ears and the burden
of a pounds 17 million pay-off to Di, last weekend he was also forced to
go without his butler, his valet and his chef.
All three of them - Bruce, Clive and Carolyn - were on a cycle run from
London to Paris raising money for the Royal British Legion. They were
joined by 257 other cyclists including - and you could probably see this
coming - several adfolk.
Kevin Gordon, a Saatchi and Saatchi art director, was one of them. He
cycled for four days and nights and raised pounds 1,250. He also did his
utmost to prise some spicy gossip out of the trio, like how Charlie has
his eggs done in the morning, or where he gets his undies. But, no joy,
‘They were very nice, orderly people. I really couldn’t quiz them too
much,’ he says.
Don’t ever apply for that job as a pushy account man, Kev.
