The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall sat through a "hairy" mid-air drama today when an in flight emergency forced them to land in Buckinghamshire - minutes after take-off.

Fifteen minutes out of central London a technical fault forced the royal helicopter to urgently divert to a nearby aerodrome at Denham.

Charles and Camilla were flying to Wales for the Hay Literature Festival.

Despite the unscheduled stop the royal couple transferred to cars and continued on to the market town of Hay-on-Wye by road.

They finally arrived close to three hours late but are reported to have looked relaxed and smiling to be greeted by the crowds although a close source to the couple is reported to have said the experience was "quite hairy".
