As previously announced, Rudolf Hart’s winner for Caption Competition #422 was Whinge Commander for his following two captions:

Flt Lt Burns was highly amused by Charles panda impression.

and

Charles demonstrated his knowledge of the internet when he was asked if knew how to use Google.

I would be grateful therefore if Whinge Commander could select the winner of this competition when it ceases to be a 'Sticky' and would appreciate it if his winner does the same the following week.Ta.

This week’s picture apparently features Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cambridge (context unknown).
