LONDON — The trustees of Britain's National Art Gallery said today they are scrapping a design for an extension that Prince Charles described as a "monstrous carbuncle."

The $21.6-million scheme included building a glass tower topped by aluminum flagpoles facing Trafalgar Square. A gallery spokesman said six architects will be invited to submit a new design for the extension.
