Reports about credit card usage

Published on 11th December 2009

It has been reported that The Prince of Wales borrowed money from the Metropolitan Police.  These reports are incorrect.

A Clarence House spokesperson said:  "The Prince of Wales did not incur these costs.

"It was an accommodation bill for Prince William and Prince Harry and staff on a private trip.

"It was immediately reimbursed by The Prince of Wales's office account.

"On occasions, it is necessary for matters to be handled in this way for confidentiality and security reasons."
