Charles: world should follow Edinburgh's lead


Edinburgh's status as a beacon of architectural excellence is facing pressure from modern-day commercial pressures, the Prince of Wales warned yesterday

http://www.theherald.co.uk/news/63149.html

Edinburgh at risk of being 'clone city', says Charles

THE Prince of Wales has warned that the Scottish capital is at risk from becoming a "clone" city and losing its status as a beacon of excellence if it does not seek to address "shortsighted commercialism".

Two different headlines, same speech!

The flat waste ground at the end of a once grand driveway may not look much now. But it will soon boast a mansion fit for a King - or even a future King and his bride. According to locals in this small corner of Herefordshire, the neo-Georgian manor house planned for this site is to be Prince William's new home after he marries.

I have put this in here because it is about restoration work being done for Charles, the headline they have used is the normal GOSSIP.

Charles accused of wasting police time with no-show at Crathie Kirk.

• Twenty police officers assigned to Royal protection left standing
• No reason given why the Royal couple cancelled their visit

They did, it is all about a politician trying to keep himself in the news, IMO, opening his mouth before he had the facts.

Poor Camilla and Charles, condemned for not attending a church service that nobody knew officially, they were going to attend in the first place. I'm sure that the last thing on their minds at such a time, was who to notify. There would only have been a limited staff at Birkhall, most of whom would not have been working on a Sunday anyway.

Most people who have received this sort of news, can attest to the fact that normal reactions and thoughts go right out of the window.

Observation about Charles and Camilla

I was just thinking about this today, when I saw that Camilla's father died. I've noticed that Charles never seems to make the news by himself in America; he only seems to hit the headlines in conjunction with a woman, be it Diana, the Queen or now, Camilla. I noticed on this forum today, that the Camilla current event thread is 12 pages long, but Charles' is only 8 pages. For those in the UK, do you see this trend in the papers and on the news there? If so, I wonder if it bothers him as much now as it did when he and Diana were married...

I imagine this politician is eating crow right now that it was announced that Camilla's father was dying.

That´s only natural. Women always draw more attention, because clothes, hairdo, jewelry...And with Camilla its also because of her "past". You want to see her behaviour in public. But the difference to Diana is: Camilla is always trying to let get Charles first. He hasn´t to be jealous. Diana wanted to steal him the show. And he want the public to be in love with Camilla.

Maybe Diana didn't mean to steal the show from Prince Charles but she certainly did (because she was young, fresh, beautiful, Cinderella...). And I have the impression she ejoyed it, at least at first.
Camilla definetely doesn't want to steal the show but for the reasons, given by Hornsen, sometimes it's inevitable. Women do get more attention.

The newspapers/media are at fault. Charles does a lot of unreported work and when they do a joint event, they focus on Camilla.

I don't think Charles is at all bothered by Camilla getting the press attention, she doesn't seek it and he is proud to 'display' his darling wife.

Prince is given rooftop welcome



The Prince of Wales has met workers at an affordable housing scheme as part of a two-day visit to Cornwall.

After flying in, Prince Charles, who is the Duke of Cornwall, was greeted by builders who lined the rooftops of the Belvedere housing development in Truro.

Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales during a visit to Fentongollan Farm, June 13, 2006 in Truro, England.
The Prince is spending two days on official visits in Cornwall and Devon but he was not joined by his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, after the death of her father Major Bruce Shand on Sunday.

CHARLES BOWLS OVER ROYAL FANS IN CORNWALL

Having given up the strenuous sport of polo, Prince Charles tried his hand at an altogether gentler game as he went bowling on Tuesday.
