The Ford brothers will meet Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, at Ashbridge’s Bay Park Monday night.

Mayor Rob Ford talked about the coming meeting on his radio show on NEWSTALK 1010 on Sunday and seemed pretty pumped about the prospect of meeting the future king.

Apparently both Fords are big fans of the British monarchy.

“I can’t wait to meet Prince Charles and the Duchess,” Mayor Ford told listeners.

Councillor Doug Ford – whose candid comments often land him in hot water and on the front page – vowed he’ll be keeping quiet around the royals in a bid to avoid controversy.

“I always seem to say something and that’s it, so I’m keeping my mouth shut,” Ford said on-air.

The Fords ended their Victoria Day weekend show with a nod to Prince Charles’ mom, Queen Elizabeth II.

“God bless the Queen and Canada,” Councillor Ford said just before signing off.
