Tonight the looming Charliegate scandal reached new levels of ludicrousness.

All day the newsroom has been awash with speculation over the identity of the member of the Royal Family who was allegedly seen involved in "an incident" by a former Royal employee.

Who was the Royal? What was the alleged "incident"?

There were plenty of rumours, as there always are with these kinds of stories.

Tonight, the identity of the member of royal family at the centre of the allegations was confirmed as Prince Charles.

In a farcical performance, the Prince's private secretary Sir Michael Peat went on camera to strenuously deny that an incident which he wasn't able to describe -- and which isn't in the public domain -- ever took place.

Peat also took the opportunity to smear the former royal aide who made the allegation "who, unfortunately, has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and has previously suffered from alcoholism following active service in the Falklands."

I fear this rearguard action by Prince Charles's private secretary will backfire....but that's enough innuendos for one night.
