But you still wouldn't expect Jeremy Corbyn and Prince Charles to have much to talk about.

So it may be a surprise to learn that the odd couple have just held two meetings in the past two days.

And they seem to get on like a house on fire – smiling and chatting away as they greeted each other this afternoon.

Mr Corbyn, 68, and the 69-year-old prince were seen talking at a service to dedicate the National Memorial to British Victims of Overseas Terrorism in Staffordshire.

The service was also attended by senior Tories including Boris Johnson and Sajid Javid.

It came 24 hours after Charles and Jez met in London for talks behind closed doors.

The Prince of Wales has held regular meetings with the Leader of the Opposition over the years.

But yesterday was the first time he has hosted Mr Corbyn.

The current Labour boss is a fierce republican who wants to see the monarchy abolished.
