CHARLES’ CHECK: Burberry’s newly minted global headquarters in London will get the royal seal of approval this week. Today, Prince Charles is set to make a visit to Horseferry House, the company’s 160,000-square-foot base near London’s River Thames, to officially open the sleek building. Angela Ahrendts, Burberry’s chief executive officer, and Christopher Bailey, the label’s creative director, will greet the prince, who will then view Burberry’s archives and meet members of the company’s 850 staff — who have been based at the building since January — during a tour of Burberry’s design studio and offices. And since Burberry has held one of the Prince of Wales’ royal warrants since 1990, it’s likely Charles will be well enough acquainted with the 153-year-old label to happily talk trench coats with Ahrendts and Bailey.
