Fork handles Your Highness? Charles in comedy nod

Prince Charles was amused by a comedy nod to the Two Ronnies famous sketch about four candles.

The Prince of Wales was visiting businesses affected by the floods of 2009 in Cumbria when he spotted bunches of candles on the counter of ironmongers JB Banks and Sons.

They were on the counter together with a fork handle, after the owner said customers to the traditional shop often asked for them.
