Photos taken Wednesday show Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, looking surprised when the eagle mascot for the Army Air Corps, Zephyr, flapped its wings in their faces at the annual Sandringham Flower Show at the Queen’s Norfolk estate.
“That’s why I’m not holding him,” The Prince of Wales said afterwards, according to The Telegraph.
Twitter is having a field day with the puns. A tweet from MSN: “Prince Charles gets in a flap with an eagle”
A Clarence House spokesperson told The Telegraph: “I think the pictures are more dramatic than it actually was.”
