The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla were visiting the town of "Poundbury". If that sounds like a made-up place, that's because it is: by Charles himself, who decided to create an urban development on his land in the early 1990s to his own exacting town planning standards.

The pictures of the monarch cruising the aisles of Britain's beloved posh supermarket are surprisingly relatable.
