Noblesse Oblige

Prince Charles Pays 350-Year-Old Debt

A 350-year-old debt left by King Charles II to a clothes company has finally been paid by the Prince of Wales.

Prince Charles handed over the sum of £453.15 during a visit to The Commandery History Museum in Worcester.

The Clothiers Company of Worcester had never forgotten the Royal Family owed them money after King Charles II failed to pay when he commissioned them to make uniforms for his troops in 1651.
