Prince Charles’ Friend ‘Sooty’

Days after a video leaked out of Prince Harry making racist jokes, his dad has his own explaining to do. Apparently, Charles and his pals have been in the habit of calling their friend Kuldip Dhillon, a fellow member of the Cirencester Park Polo Club in Gloucestershire, by the nickname “Sooty.” Dhillon has laughed off the controversy, saying, “I enjoy being called Sooty by my friends who I am sure universally use the name as a term of affection with no offence meant or felt. The Prince of Wales is a man of zero prejudice and both his sons have always been most respectful.” Still, some are calling the Prince of Wales “out of touch” for using the nickname, The Daily Telegraph reports.
