Who would have thought that 50 years later- Charles Philip Arthur George would still be Prince and not King. Queen Elizabeth is 93, remember The Queen Mom lived to 101. He may still be in for a wait.

  1. Trivia that probably everyone knows: The gold ball on Charles’ crown is a spray-painted ping pong ball. 🙂

    Sam may have sold Sun Records, but it’s been beautifully preserved. It is one of my all time favorite tourist stops.

  2. Spray-painted ping pong ball. I can’t get over that. Isn’t that considered, like, exceedingly tacky for a crown, lol………….??
