“There was a huge hole down the side of that sofa. And his member of the staff said ‘Do you know what? I always wanted him to get that sofa recovered and he just won’t do it'”.
“So we plunked up the cushions and we hid that gap in his sofa. And I thought, hang on a minute. This is the heir to the throne and he can’t be bothered to get his sofa repaired”.
Probably there was some sentimental value to the couch or something. No judgement here!
