Dressing up as a member of the royal family for a fancy dress party or Halloween is not an unusual practice for costume enthusiasts.
It turns out that a member of the royal family also enjoys dressing up in costumes – only to avoid being recognised.
Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, is probably one of the most famous people in the world, and with that level of fame comes constant media and public media attention.
It can be difficult to escape the spotlight, but it seems like the heir to throne has found an interesting way.
The Prince famously wore a disguise on a skiing trip to keep a low profile whilst enjoying his time away from his royal duties – however, it is probably likely that the disguise ended up attracting more attention than had he gone without.
The trip, which took place in 1980, saw the young Prince wear a fake nose and moustache whilst skiing in Klosters, Switzerland.
The outfit resembled something out of a Where’s Wally children’s book, complete with circular framed lenses and a red sweater.
