I think you have too much faith in Prince Charles being our future monarch anyway. Twelve Foot Lizard Mumsie is never gonna die. I also think you may be right in noting that Real Ale needs a breakthrough product, but complletely wring in thinking it could be a Duchy Original. For it to have the heritage and ethical sourcing issues as a forefront it would have to be an old(ish) producer, or an exciting new brewery. Neither of which Prince Charles operation really musters. The closest we've had is Timothy Taylor's Landlord, which unfortunately is a bit pale and wan in the bottle.

Their Winter Ale isn't up to much, either. It's not horrible by any means, but compared to e.g. Brakspear's Triple, or St. Peters' Winter it's just sticky, brown and bland.
