    Hi PG,

    We have corrected the name of the Prince of Wales.

    Thanks for that.

    Seemingly it used to be Prince of Wales, changed to Princess (can we suppose in/after 1997?), and is now reverting to former Title.

    It's been the Prince of Wales most of the life of the pub (indeed, the postcard I found on ebay from 1929 was the Prince), it was a knee jerk reaction by the late John Young to rename the pub on the passing of Princess Diana - apparently he had a soft spot for her, and was hit by her death.

    Its' got to be one of the only transgenered entities to lose it's manhood, and have it fully re-attached 13 years down the line!
