An obscene piece of graffiti by a workman at Kensington Palace has been uncovered after more than a century.
A £12 million restoration project of the royal residence has discovered the culprit's handiwork in pristine order, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The message is neatly dated 1/2/1902 and reads: "Peter Jackson, The Champion F***er!"
Either a proud boast by the author or an insult about a colleague, the piece of graffiti adorns a post supporting the ceiling beside the palace's front door.
"When this was written he must have thought he was perfectly safe, that nobody in the world would ever lay eyes on it again," said Lee Prosser, Buildings Curator at Historic Royal Palaces.
"Sadly, we don't know very much about Peter Jackson, but evidently he, like many others throughout history, could not resist the temptation to leave his mark on a royal palace."
