King Charles is a vampire

New Idea magazine once hinted that the then Prince Charles might be a vampire. In fact, the theory refers to his supposed kinship with Vlad the Impaler, who suffered from porphyria. Rumour aside, the truth is that the condition does not make one a vampire, but simply makes the skin more sensitive to the sun. Charles has confirmed that he is related to lad the Impaler, whom author Bram Stoker based his literary vampire Dracula on.
