GB News host Nigel Farage had revealed he once had a falling out with Prince Charles over a speech to the EU Parliament. Mr Farage was discussing the Prince of Wales with royal expert Ingrid Seward when the former MEP recalled the time he refused to give Charles a standing ovation in Brussels because of the Prince’s view on EU integration and the climate. Mr Farage told Ms Seward: “I refused to stand up.”

Mr Farage told the Majesty magazine Editor-in-Chief: “I had a bit of a fallout with him.

“He turned up in the European Parliament in 2005 or 6.

“So Charlie turns up at the European Parliament gives a big speech to the MEPs.

“Basically says that the European Union needs to have more power, what!?

The former Brexit Party leader added: “And that the North Pole would be gone with seven years, and we are all facing catastrophe we are all going to die unless the European Union has more power.

“I thought well this is very odd.

“This is a future King asking for more sovereignty to be given…

“So I refused because there was a standing ovation for what he said and I refused to stand up.”

“I have met him a couple of times since at to be fair he has got a sense of humor,” added Mr Farage.

“He knows that we have rather different views.

“I think he is an alarmist and he probably thinks I am not alarmed enough.

“He is polite, friendly, a good sense of humor I have seen that first hand with him, but does he have the connection with the people that is needed to be a king?”
