(Newser) – Prince William will soon be visiting Southern California—and what better place to get a little "work" done? The prince will indeed have a plastic surgeon at the ready during his visit, but only in case of emergency, the Los Angeles Times reports. The Beverly Hills doctor will be on standby during the charity polo match Wills is playing in, and will quickly take care of the prince should he be injured.

While he was happy to get the gig, the doc notes that “with the prince around, I think most people will be on their best behavior,” and speculates the most likely injury would be a minor laceration.
