Stephen Fry and Prince Charles.
Fry, 57, says, "It’s fair to say that he knows I am naughty. He is not a judgmental, mean, prissy sort of man."
Fry, who is bipolar and suffers from depression, says the drugs helped him cope with his mood swings before his condition was diagnosed. "If you have a condition when your moods are victim to some strange illness inside your mind and brain but you don’t know you have got an actual illness with a name, alcohol and street drugs change your mood in a way that nothing else will." No doubt with an eye on having his collar felt by the boys in blue he adds, "It is, of course, a bad idea and it exacerbates the problem." Not that having Prince Charles as a pal in any way influences the issue.
At Buckingham Palace there is a long and noble tradition of 'drug-taking'. The Beatles famously smoked cannabis when they attended the palace to be presented with their MBEs.
