Prince Albert

Posted by Parthian on October 14, 2007

I am happy to post, does anyone know why "Prince Albert" as a piercing is called that? It was in an Anthony Burgess book; Wikipedia describes it well, but origins I don't know. I can only guess it is a ref to the Prince Regent? Does anyone know why?
