Alex James to make cheese for the Prince of Wales
Blur's Alex James is to start making cheese for the Prince of Wales.
The 40-year-old had signed a deal to produce a cheese using half a million litres of organic milk from a pedigree Ayrshire herd. The cheese will be sold through the Duchy of Cornwall estate.
"It will be the poshest cheese in the world but it's only going to cost £3 - I think everyone should be able to afford royal cheese," James told The Times.
A spokesman for the Prince said, "Duchy Originals is delighted to be working with Alex James, one of Britain's most exciting and passionate new cheese makers, to produce a cheese using the milk form the herd of Ayrshire cows on the Duchy Home Farm."
The musician-turned-farmer lives on a cheese farm in Oxfordshire.
His first goat's cheese, Little Wallop, won silver at the Cheese of the Year Awards in 2008.
