Oprah Winfrey (@oprahwinfry)

Will makes time to tweet his 44,763 subjects/Twitter followers in between trying on crowns and having afternoon tea with Granny. Here's whats recently been on the Prince's mind:
"Why do women feel compelled to 'flash' one whilst I peacefully ride the Royal Harley?" "Dear USA, yes we do have a 'monopoly' on the English language. Yours, Future King of ENGLAND."

Edgar Allan Poe (@Edgar_Allan_Poe)
