Jamie Oliver as said that Prince Charles is a "great laugh" to spend time with.
The famous chef was speaking on Channel 4's The Last Leg Of The Year when he discussed Britain's next monarch.
"He's a great laugh. He's really into his food and farming," he said. "For the last 40 years he's been quite pioneering.
"Maybe people around him thought he was a bit of a hippy. Everything he has done has come of age."

And of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, which made the Royals more prominent than ever, he confessed: "I love any opportunity for the country to come together and have a party. It was like Christmas Day.
"I do like a bit of royal stuff."
