Prince Charles Flying Holy Water Taken From The River Jordan Back To The UK

The Prince of Wales is flying 'five or six dozen bottles' of Holy water taken from the River Jordan back to the UK for royal baptisms - which could include that of Lilibet, the grand-daughter he has never met.

The heir to the throne, 73 and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, 74, were earlier today afforded the honour of dipping their fingers in the water where Jesus was baptised as they embarked on a whirlwind visit of the Middle East.

Now it can be revealed that Charles will be taking home with him on the return flight later this week a consignment of vials full of water to be used for future royal christenings.
