Asked if he hoped Prince Harry would wed his Las Vegas belle next year, following the retailer’s success during the royal wedding and Diamond Jubilee over the past two years, Price replied: “We’ve got the hot tubs at the ready.”

Let’s hope Waitrose is well stocked with Duchy Originals ginger nuts.
