A new book claims that Prince Charles was a 'vociferous supporter' of Scottish nationalism who would chant 'freedom for the Scots' as a student.

Royal author Ingrid Seward, the editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, says her late husband, journalist Ross Benson, who was a classmate of Charles, revealed how the young heir to the throne passionately took the side of Scottish nationalists in a mock debate.

However, Clarence House has denied that the Prince, who, as heir to the throne, is forbidden from interfering in the world of party politics was involved in anything more than a fictional debate.

Together with his other political supporters, he held aloft a banner saying, "Vote for the Scottish Nationalists".'

'And through what Charles was as doing at Dumfries House, he saw that he really did love Scotland.

'But Charles has never had the he same relationship with Nicola Sturgeon. It is polite and civil but more professional. Maybe if she knew Charles once campaigned for independence the relationship would be warmer - and he'd be more embraced by his "fellow Nationalists".

'When Charles spoke in a debate all traces of shyness left him and he was one of the best debaters although Ross thought his views were a bit illogical but always clearly put.

'The subject of the monarchy was strictly taboo. But Charles prepared his speeches with notes and spoke convincingly.

'He made lots of speeches supporting his party, the SNP, and a Tory supporter reminded him he was Prince of Wales not Scotland! "Freedom for Wales too" he said in the next election.

'He loved Scotland loved wearing his kilt and on last day of school, the Queen came to see him and he wore his Hunting Stewart kilt in her honour.

'He also loved Scottish poetry and Robbie Burns was one of his favourites and had a book of Scottish ballads he would carry around with him and learnt them by heart."

Charles was a pupil at Gordonstoun from 1962 and it is believed his campaigning for the SNP took place at the school's mock elections ahead of the real General Election in 1964, won by Labour's Harold Wilson. The SNP's leader at the time was journalist Arthur Donaldson.

It was during his term that the party began to grow and make its presence felt in Scottish politics.

It followed reports that the Queen was growing increasingly concerned about the vote.

Royal officials insisted her remark did not breach her 'constitutional impartiality, adding that 'the monarch is above politics'.

Although Charles has reportedly described Gordonstoun as 'Colditz in kilts', he has also praised the school, stating it taught him 'a great deal about myself and my own abilities and disabilities.

'It taught me to accept challenges and to take the initiative'.

He became Guardian, or Head Boy, and left in 1967 with six GCE O-levels and two A-levels.
