(Newser) – Prince Charles is turning to an unusual source to supply cheese for the royal table, the Times of London reports: Alex James, bassist for rock band Blur. James has won awards for cheese he’s made on his farm outside London. “It will be the poshest fucking cheese in the world,” he says, “but it’s only going to cost £3,” or about $4.90.

“I think everyone should be able to afford royal cheese,” James, 40, adds of the stuff, which will be made from organic milk of a pedigree herd, and which will be sold through Prince Charles’ Duchy Originals, a line of organic, sustainable products.
