NUTTY CHARLES OBSESSED WITH RED SQUIRRELS!
PRINCE CHARLES really is squirrelly!
The 70-year-old British royal’s number one son, Prince William, reveals his wacky pops is “obsessed” with the endangered red squirrels on his Scottish estate, Birkhall.
“He is completely infatuated by the red squirrels — to the extent that he’s given them names and is allowing them into the house!” William reveals.
Nutty nature lover
Charles is a patron of the Red Squirrel Survival Trust, which seeks to save the rodents from extinction. The reds are being threatened by aggressive gray squirrels imported from America
about 200 years ago, which now outnumber the native species by a 15-to-1 margin. Britain’s future king gushes the red rascals are “incredibly special creatures.
They come into the house at Birkhall and we get them chasing each other round and round inside.
“If I sit there quietly, they will do so around me.
“Sometimes, when I leave my jackets on a chair with nuts in the pockets, I see them with their tails sticking out, as they hunt for nuts.
“These creatures, they really do make me laugh. My great ambition is to have one sitting on the breakfast table — and on my shoulder!”
