(Newser) – Is Prince William living a secret double life? Probably not. But he drew laughs at a London gallery by “confessing” that he is Banksy, the mysterious and controversial graffiti artist. Banksy’s art can be found throughout the UK and beyond, but the reclusive artist refuses to be photographed and hasn’t confirmed his real name. The BBC has reported his actual identity to be Robert Banks, a 35-year-old from Bristol.
