Britain's Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, are in Philadelphia this weekend. They started their tour of the city at Independence Hall, the place where America severed its ties to Britain in 1776. It's also where, a few years later, the United States soundly rejected a monarchy in favor of a constitutional republic. And yet, there's nothing like a visit from a prince to bring out the latent royal devotees. Independent Producer Peter Crimmins has found the city of cheese steaks may have a hidden weakness for crumpets, after all.
