GREAT SCOTT: Actor Dougray Scott rattled the royals over dinner last week, after golfing for team Pringle at Scotland’s Roxburghe Hotel. “I can’t wait to talk to Prince Charles about my new film ‘To Kill A King,’” Scott said before the Pringle-sponsored fund-raiser for The Prince’s Trust Scotland. “It’s about Oliver Cromwell beheading Charles I!” Scott and his wife, Sarah Travis, joined Prince Charles and Pringle chief Kim Winser at a dinner held on the grounds of Floors Castle, the home of hosts the Duke and Duchess of Roxburghe.
But Scott didn’t ruffle any princely feathers. After the meal, Prince Charles made a speech, singing Pringle’s praises. “I trust you were all kitted in well-knitted Pringle on the golf course today,” said the Prince. “Sadly, my kilt has not been knitted by Pringle like others here tonight.”
GOING GLOBAL: With the Concorde grounded, Bombardier, the aviation company behind Learjet, is hoping to lure jet-setters with its new Global 5000, a corporate jet with intercontinental range that’s quicker than the rest. The plane can be bought for $33 million or chartered for around $5,500 an hour, and can accommodate between eight and 19 passengers. While it’s not supersonic, execs say the Global 5000 makes the New York-to-Paris run in six hours flat — 41 minutes ahead of the Gulfstream’s G4.
