The house that Charles killed
Will Prince Charles come to rue the day he poked the Royal beak into the Chelsea Barracks affair? Court documents reveal that the Candy brothers, who are suing site owner Qatari Dar after the Richard Rogers scheme collapsed, will call the Prince as a witness. The brothers allege that the Qataris broke their contract by withdrawing the project, and intimate that the decision was the "direct result of an intervention in the planning process by the Prince of Wales"; Charles could be cross-examined if he appears in court. Boris Johnson has also been cited in the case, as the Qataris are expected to claim that they believed the Mayor would nix the project. The case opens in the High Court today.
