Charles backs fathers

PRINCE Charles yesterday showed his support for dads who lose out in the divorce courts.

He said he felt judges favour mums when deciding custody of kids — even when many fathers were not to blame for the split.

The prince spoke out while chatting to a newly-divorced Navy officer on HMS Belfast in London.

Chief Petty Officer Neil Smith, 42, said: “He said that things don’t seem very fair at the moment — and that things seem to be weighted towards mothers.”

Divorced dad-of-two Charles’s comments are a boost for the “Fathers 4 Justice” campaign.
