How the media works

Yesterday, Prince Charles visited the Galapagos Islands. This is how the Times reported it.

 Prince Charles meets Lonesome George

What more suitable figure, then, than Lonesome George, the world’s most famous tortoise, to greet the Prince of Wales on his first visit to the Galapagos Islands?

Meanwhile, at The Sun:

Charles ogles boobies

And if all that fails to get you going, you can always check out the boobies.

    “He is a male of advanced years, the last of his kind and a fellow regarded by many as an indelible symbol of the way things used to be.”

    Seriously, I thought that sentence was referring to HRH. 🙂

    In think Prince Charles loved the Galapagos Islands because they are the most incredible living museum of evolutionary changes, with a huge variety of exotic species (birds, land animals, plants) and landscapes not seen anywhere else.
