Two matters connected with this may be of some amusement. For several years our chaplains had been referring to the Prince of Wales as 'Principem Galliae' - which could only mean 'Prince of France'; one suspects 'a little learning' on the part of some former chaplain or dean, misled by the French 'Prince de Galles'. The correct 'Walliae' has now been restored. And a few years ago, one of our chaplains, for a 'dare', inserted 'the Royal Corgis' into the list on one occasion - which apparently went unnoticed except by those in the know.
