The Prince of Wales has come under fire after he became the patron of a homeopathy group, the Faculty of Homeopathy, which supports registered medical professionals with alternative treatment.
It is thought he put himself forward for the role after taking a good long look at his life and realising that when it comes to things having precisely no impact on anything, he would be best suited to become a figurehead for the alternative medicine.
Homeopathy has been banned in the NHS, with the Government’s chief medical officer, Dame Sally Davies, also once telling a parliamentary committee that the practice was “rubbish”.
“But what do the experts know?” said Prince Charles, as the news of his appointment was announced. “I’ve travelled the world and observed all different kinds of medicine being practiced.
“Homeopathy is far more than basically just sugar and water. It is sugar and water that may have once been sat next to a jar of real medicine on a shelf and magically obtained the healing power by a mysterious transfer of energy.”
He added, “Probably, anyway. I leave all the science side of things to the homeopathic doctors, who are definitely real doctors and not people who did a Homeopathy e-learning course before printing off a certificate.
Announcing the “enormous honour” of having Prince Charles on board, the group said they were looking forward to working him, especially as they are currently celebrating their 175th anniversary.
Meaning that they have been having no positive effect on people only slightly longer than the Prince of Wales hasn’t.
