Gaze, simple folk of the Earth, upon true regal grace. And look, that's Prince Charles as well! Ho-ho.

For those of you who aren't as familiar with the inner world of Greenpeace as, er, me, that bloke on the left is our executive director, John. That chap in the middle is our future king, probably, and the two fellas on his right are minders - probably fighting quite hard to stop themselves rugby tackling everyone to the ground and bundling HRH into a waiting Chinook.

2009 was an epic year at Worthy Farm. Many festival-goers declared it the "best ever" Glastonbury. But with 2010 being the festival's 40th anniversary, we're doing all we can to make the next one even more special...
