Paper round

Prince Harry stunned an award winner at a charity lunch by asking her for counselling because he gets bullied for his ginger hair.

According to The Sun, Maxine Broadfoot won the Diana Award for counselling and was at a lunch organised by the charity of the same name at which Princes Harry and William were the guests of honour. She said: "Prince Harry asked if he could get some counselling as he gets bullied for being ginger. I didn't know what to say and just laughed."

The Wallace and Gromit Children's Foundation attracted the attention of the Pendennis column in The Observer. Thousands of people recently donated £1 to wear "silly clothes" on Wrong Trousers Day, but Pendennis quoted the Intelligent Giving website, which pointed out that all the foundations's expenditure last year was on fundraising.

"The cynical might suggest it's simply great branding for Wallace and Gromit, but I'd prefer to believe it's motivated by the best intentions and is just a little slow," says the column.

The Daily Mirror reported that Conservative leader David Cameron appeared to reveal he knew more about smoking pot than a man of his position should, during a visit to a Kids Company project.

He told them: "Before the bag was even open, the smell was unbelievably strong. Grown in greenhouses, this skunk is unbelievably powerful. And it's completely different to ..." Then he stopped awkwardly and said: "I think I'll stop there."

Although Cameron has always refused to comment on whether he has smoked cannabis, a biography claimed that he was grounded after being caught doing so when he was at Eton.
