An unfortunate reaction has turned Prince Charles into a right royal meme.

After being photographed flinching as a Bald Eagle flew past him during a visit to the Sandringham Flower Show this week, the image took on a new life once the internet got hold of it.

The resulting hashtag, #princecharlesbeingattackedbythings, has seen the royal attacked by variety of threats - including Sharknado, Borat and even James Blunt.

It's unknown whether Charles is at all amused by the images, but the hilarious pictures are becoming more and more imaginative as the meme gathers steam.
