In a politically partisan move the Highways Agency has renamed The Second Severn Crossing bridge that links Wales and England as The Prince of Wales Bridge.

The “prince” after whom the bridge is now named is Charlie Windsor, who was recently described by the Daily Mail as “pampered, petulant, self-pitying.”

The change of name is intended to mark Windsor’s sixty years as Prince of Wales and his seventieth birthday in November.

Leanne Wood, leader of Plaid Cymru, asked whether the decision was an April Fools day joke.

Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns said that there had been no publication about the new name because there was never consultation on decisions related to the Windsor family.

This snub to republicans follows the renaming of the London Crossrail train line as the Elizabeth Line after Charlie’s mother.
