Prince Charles pays off royal debt ... 350 years late
LONDON, June 10, 2008 (AFP) - Heir to the throne Prince Charles on Tuesday paid off a family debt incurred more than 350 years ago.
Charles handed over 453 pounds and 15 pence (572 euros and 20 euro cents, 885 dollars and four cents) which King Charles II failed to pay to the Clothiers Company in Worcester, central England, in 1651.
