June 11 – According to the Prince of Wales’ official website, the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay met with Dennis the Menace during their visit for the official opening of DC Thomson Printing Plant in Dundee.
Their Royal Highnesses have been immortalized as cartoons in the popular comic, which hits the shelves tomorrow.
Beano Editor Craig Graham said The Duke and Duchess were thrilled to be featured in the long-running comic.
The Duke and Duchess are not the first Royals to have been featured in the Beano. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have already made cameo appearances in the publication. The new edition, billed as a "top secret guest issue", urges readers to turn the pages to find out who the special visitors to Beanotown are.
Their Royal Highnesses viewed an exhibition of the 100-year history of the publisher behind such titles as The Press and Journal, The Courier and The Sunday Post, and some of the most popular children's publications of all time, such as Bunty, Judy, The Skipper and The Hotspur.
The Duke and Duchess also started the company's new printing press, which is said to be one of the most efficient of its kind.
