Prince Charles Under Fire

Just two days after Prince Harry was widely criticized for calling an Army colleague a "Paki" on a video tape, the British press reported that Prince Charles has a nickname for an Asian friend: "Sooty." After the revelation, the friend, Kolin Dhillon, spoke out in defense of Charles, declaring him to have "zero prejudice." Dhillon added: "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."
