EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: It’s the King of rock ‘n’ roll! Amazing image shows Charles sporting stubble as he met Johnny Cash in 1970s

King Charles has been letting his hair grow longer. Perhaps he could cultivate a beard as well?

Music legend Johnny Cash’s daughter has shared this photo of the hirsute monarch when he met her father in 1976, en route to watch Princess Anne in the Olympics at Montreal.

Musician Roseanne Cash says: ‘I’ve been debating all day whether or not to post this photo, but it’s just too good to keep under wraps.’

C4 forced to shelve ‘foul’ Frankie Boyle show on royals

Asking Frankie Boyle to make a documentary about the Royal Family was always likely to cause upset.

Broadcasting the programme after the death of the beloved Queen would provoke revulsion.

And now, I hear, Channel 4 has shelved plans to screen the show.

‘You won’t be seeing that programme for a long time, if at all,’ an insider tells me. A Channel 4 spokesman says: ‘We’re reviewing our schedules closely in light of events and any changes will be publicised.’

Former Mock The Week panellist Boyle has expressed his frustration, saying: ‘Let’s spare a thought for everyone who was just putting the finishing touches to a humorous documentary about the monarchy.’

Last month, I reported that the public service network had commissioned the controversial comedian to make the programme, Frankie Boyle: Monarchy.

It said he ‘turns his wry eye to the state of the British monarchy and its future’, adding: ‘He wonders, ‘Will the monarchy soon be put out of its misery as it slips gently away under the soft pillow of our collective apathy? Do the Royal Family have any place in the modern world?’ ‘

Boyle, 50, has previously made ‘jokes’ about the Queen that were so offensive a Conservative MP described them as ‘disgracefully foul’.

David Davis said: ‘Just because the Queen is the Queen, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t have feelings, and she should not be subjected to that kind of comment on a national TV programme.’

The BBC was forced to cut a line from its Comic Relief coverage in 2013 after Boyle, commenting on the Queen having been admitted to hospital, said: ‘I wished she’d died.’

In July, performing at Latitude Festival, he said he wished people would stop speculating about the Queen dying as ‘that’s going rob my enjoyment of the event when it happens’.

After the Queen’s death, he ‘joked’ of the King: ‘Charles seems emotional because he’s thinking about how much less fuss there’ll be when he dies, later in the year.

‘If he goes in the middle of the World Cup, he might not even make the news.’

The spectacle of the Queen’s funeral was undermined for the gentlemen of the Turf Club by an edict banning them from a first-floor terrace with an enviable view of The Mall, from which members have watched the Golden, Diamond and Platinum Jubilee processions, and Prince William’s wedding. 

‘It seems that the order came from the Metropolitan Police,’ I’m told. ‘Very disappointing.’

Kirsty’s pride at wedding

Kirsty Wark was at Balmoral last week reporting on the Queen’s death, but the Newsnight presenter had a joyful event to attend before Her Majesty’s funeral.

Her daughter, journalist Caitlin Clements, 32, got married at Kinkell Byre in St Andrews at the weekend to civil servant Callum Galloway, 31 (below).

When comedian Frank Skinner visited King Charles at Clarence House, the then prince had only one thing on his mind: video-sharing website YouTube.

‘He said to me: ‘Are you on, um, YouTube? I’ve got my own channel now, just this week. I was reading some of the comments.’ ‘

Skinner was alarmed at what the King might face, as online comments can be downright rude.

‘I said: ‘Really? Don’t read the comments. No, honestly.’ You can imagine some of the horrors that would be there. He said: ‘Maybe I’ll get my assistant to vet them.’ ‘

My advice to His Majesty: watch the Mail+ talk show Palace Confidential instead.

Is pop star Harry Styles taking style tips from King Charles? 

The As It Was singer, 28, turned up for the New York premiere of his film Don’t Worry Darling wearing a double-breasted jacket that wouldn’t have looked out of place on our new monarch. 

It was part of a Gucci suit designed by the former One Direction singer’s friend and collaborator, Alessandro Michele.

The Queen was head of the Church of England but treasured a Mormon ‘bible’ given to her by Olive Osmond, mother of The Osmonds, after a Royal Command Performance in 1972. 

Olive handed Her Majesty a copy of the Book of Mormon, saying: ‘I want to give you my most treasured possession.’ 

The Osmonds sang again for the Queen in 2003 and she stopped to talk with Jimmy Osmond, telling him: ‘I remember your mother, and I still have your Mormon bible.’
