EXCLUSIVE: Does the Pope Wear Tartan 'Knickers'?
NO! He does not. But the lady who leads the Scottish Conservatives might. Or at least that is what The Duke of Edinburgh implied, during a reception for Mr. Pope Benedict:
According to Ms Goldie, the Duke made the remark after meeting Iain Gray, the Scottish Labour leader, who was wearing a tartan tie.
He then turned to her to ask if she had a "pair of knickers made out of this?"
Ms Goldie replied: "I couldn't possibly comment - and even if I did, I couldn't possibly exhibit them."
She totally does.
