The Mail has to find something to fill it's pages, they seem to forget that Camilla and Charles can only request the use of RAF Lyneham and if it had been considered frivolous by any senior aides, it would not have happened.

They don't have a clue what Charles said to Camilla, or Camilla said to Charles, unless their reporter has been bugging CH, oh no, that was the News of the World!

Camilla would probably laugh, since she's so fond of horses. (And why won't this man go away??)

Carbon footprint

Can I just say all this carbon footprint crap is a very clever spin by Paddy Hareveson at Clarence House. The papers are more focused on green issues and seem to forget about the costings of these trips which I assume is funded by the tax payer. Its a good spin that works.

Prince Charles's official duties are funded mostly from the Duchy of Cornwall income, not by taxpayers' money. Some of his official duties are funded by Parliamentary Grants-in-Aid, as is the case for other senior royals. According to the Royal Family website, the Prince uses Duchy of Cornwall income to pay for some of the expenses of his official duties as well as his private and charitable expenses.

I offset any flights I make, we know that Charles and Camilla do the same.

The taxpayer does not pay for private visits.

Controversy? Where? We haven't heard a thing about it on the BBC etc. As usual 'The Royalist' finds another excuse to have a Camilla-bash and claim it as a national protest when the nation really couldn't care less whether HRH goes for a paddle in the Med or not.

Go to the bottom.
CH.4 is doing a piece on Camilla. If Ch.4's piece on Charles was any example, Oh God :(

I sometimes wish the life styles of the media personnel could be looked into. Do you tell me that journalists/subs/editors/photographers never use cars, trains, planes, ferries, etc. Do they all walk and cycle and only go on holiday to the next door village.

Excuse me venting my annoyance - but they are really all sooooo petty!

I don't think you are doing anything wrong and you are certainly not being a pill. When they calculate for a scheduled flight, they take into account the 'normal' plane used and the amount of people it carries, if it's full. If you are using scheduled flights, it can be quite a reasonable cost. (they normally use the money to plant tree's).

The whole reason they are trying to make a big deal out of Camilla's flight and cruise, is that it leaves a bigger 'footprint' than if she had used a scheduled flight. I would imagine that Camilla and Charles (their staff at least) give them the details of the plane, the amount of people being carried, the amount of expected fuel usage and all the details, so that the scheme they use can calculate the cost. That is certainly what we do if we are not using a scheduled flight.

Now I see. Thanks for the information. If they are using the money to plant trees,I assume for the co to o, I guess one could bypass a step and just plant x number of trees on one's own?

Paul Burrell used to be Diana's rock,now he's turned into a disaster!Ever since he was fired from his job with the Diana project(keeping her charities public,the memorials,et c.) he's been trying to make as much money as possible off of the Royal Family!Diana had gotten over her animosity against Camilla at the time of her death...why is Burrell fanning the fires---money! Can someone please stop this man?It's terrible watching someone self-destruct in public like this!
