The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cambridge met puppet royalty in the shape of Punch and Judy (courtesy of Prof Des Turner) at the 2013 Whitstable Oyster Festival. Mr. Punch, having been around since the time of King Charles II, is by now familiar with royal protocol and behaves himself accordingly on these occasions.
