Royal Riddle Resolved

It’s All Gone Terribly Thingy ...

The Prince Of Wales is famous for, among other things, using the word “carbuncle” about a proposed building extension. But where does this term come from? How has it passed into common usage?

All is made clear with a visit to the Northumberland Park area of North London. Here one can observe and traverse the place where it all happened: Carbuncle Passage.
