Prince Charles tells Mr NK he’s won a Pride of Britain Award
He thought he had been invited to Clarence House to discuss his groundbreaking way of teaching maths with charity officials
Prince Charles gave the Royal seal of approval to one of our inspiring Pride of Britain winners in a hilarious surprise moment.
Clifford Harding thought he had been invited to Clarence House to discuss his groundbreaking way of teaching maths with charity officials when Charles himself walked in to tell him he had won the Prince’s Trust Achiever category at the Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards tomorrow night.
He told him: “Due to all your hard work you have won. Can you believe it?”
Clifford, 36, was so stunned that he literally sat dumbstruck and struggled to respond. Charles nodded his head and laughed at his reaction.
Then, when he had recovered his composure, the pair chatted about how Clifford set up his organisation with the help of the Prince’s Trust to use rhymes to help children learn their times tables and generally improve their numeracy. He even performed one of the rhymes for Charles.
