princecharles_hurleyElizabeth Hurley and Prince Charles, together at last!

The unlikely pair have announced that they’re joining forces to launch a new range of “modern, healthy organic food”. Hurley will supply organic meat from her 400-acre farm for the Prince’s sustainable food brand Duchy Originals. The 43-year-old actress-turned-farmer has already found success selling her humanely-raised beef, pork, and lamb to leading chefs and farmers markets around the UK. Her association with the Royals will do even more to expand her fledgling empire.

“His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is an inspiration to me because of his passionate belief in organic food and farming and his unwavering commitment to help protect and sustain the countryside,” Hurley said. “I feel honoured to be working with Duchy Originals and am extremely excited about the products we are developing together.”

As one would expect, Hurley has come under fire from animal rights groups for promoting the meat scene. Last July, PETA sent her a letter urging her “to allow the piglets, calves and lambs on your land to live out their natural lives in comfort and safety” and join the organization in “promoting a healthy vegetarian diet.” Guess we know what her answer to that request is.

Look for the new food range to launch shortly.

    There is no such think as humane meat. I sincerely hope the “humanely-raised” is a quote from her (considering the unnecessary hyphen) and not your words. I am currently trying to get “less cruelly raised” into the lexicon so people know that no matter how you slice it, meat is an inherently cruel product.
