Royal fans snap up swings fit for future king presented to Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall at Chatham Historic Dockyard
Royal fans have been snapping up their own swings fit for a prince.
After Chatham's Historic Dockyard presented Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall with a swing for their grandchildren – including future king of England, Prince George of Cambridge – members of the public have been buying their own replicas.
The dockyard has been selling the swings – crafted from a piece of timber salvaged from HMS Gannet – for £400 each.

A spokesman from The Master Ropemakers, which produces the product, said: "The replica swings are made to order, making each swing unique.
"So far there has been great interest in them."
Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall spent time at the Dockyard in July after visiting the Whitstable Oyster Festival.
