'Prince Charles And The Homeopathy Pill' - The Next Harry Potter Instalment?

Do you ever feel when Prince Charles's name comes up, that you must be going slightly mad?

Surely not, I thought. Surely not. Why would Prince Charles have anything to do with lobbying the NHS to stop criticising homeopathy? Homeopathy - the 'alternative medicine' that time and time again has proven to have effects literally NO BETTER THAN A PLACEBO. (Disclaimer - I'm not being close minded here - please google it for yourself and see. It even says as much on the NHS website, but I don't think Prince Charles read that bit).
