It was 1977 when ABC’s 'Countdown' landed an exclusive with the heir to the throne which would go on to make television history as a stammering Meldrum just couldn’t get it together. With Samuel Johnson playing a young Meldrum, the pivotal moment was recreated in an uncanny way as we see Meldrum swear his way through the segment. “And now we come to the most important part of tonight’s program, in fact, the most important part of the program’s history,” Meldrum says before messing up the Prince Charles introduction.

In the not-so-distant past, the Palace hired a private tutor who was guaranteed to keep the little princes and princesses from being compromised by the people they might one day 'rule'. Next came the exclusive boarding schools.
