I think that Charles wearing a black tie is so great. Even if he can not be with his wife, he is showing how much he does care.

Prince gets a taste of the West

Hundreds of people greeted the Prince of Wales as he visited a Cornish town fair highlighting farmers' produce.

Holocaust survivor Leon Greenman, 95, points to his late wife Else's wedding dress, which was died brown so she could re-wear later, as he shares his memories with Britain's Prince Charles at the Jewish Museum in Finchley, in London, 22 June 2006.
Greenman, who was kept in six different concentration camps, lost his wife and baby son to the Nazis, shortly after they arrived at the Birkenau camp. He has dedicated his life to educating people about the Holocaust and he spends every Sunday at the museum showing youngsters round and taking questions. AFP Photo

Is Prince Charles still wearing a black tie? You must admit that he is truly standing byside his wife.

Thanks for posting the article, AgnesK. It's really a very worthy and good thing to do. Prince Charles has his heart in the right place.

Prince Charles's private income rises to 14m

The Prince of Wales's private income rose to more than 14million last year, Clarence House accounts showed today.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...=1766&ito=1490

This article gives a breakdown of the accounts and as far as I can see it is money well spent!

Really a great spending of money. The Governments (including mine) could take a leaf out of Prince Charles's book!
And Camilla 'cost' only 2000 !!!! Wow!
Sorry, I might have memorized but what were the 4 solo engagements of the Duchess abroad? Were the solo engagements she was doing while on tour with Prince Charles in Saudi Arabia, India and Egypt meant?

I think so and didn't she do a solo in America?

3.5p from every person in the UK, much less than Tony Blair and his family them!

How long for the MPs to start circling? It won't help Charles income is even better then last year. Sigh ... groan.

There is a part of me that wonders if Charles pays above and beyond or the accounting is arranged so that Camilla herself barely cost the taxpayer anything. He is notoriously protective of her.

I hope not. Charles has a lots of accountants around him. His treasure helps him manage his money but Sir Michael Peat is an expert about how to make money and how to save money and how to make book keeping. I too also wonder how Camilla can only spend 2000 pounds public money in the last year, but Charles is always willing to use his money on her and that counts.He has not revealed his personal expenditure yet and it is ok for me.

Camilla does seem to rely on Charles more than I thought. That's a good balance. Charles leads the way and Camilla follows him and support him,

Love C_C

I totally agree with you about Sir Michael Peat. He is extremely good with money. And whatever they do to make it that Camilla is extremely cheap to the taxpayer is fine by me. I wasn't suggesting otherwise, more curiosity then anything.
Whatever is necessary...

MPs seek inquiry after Prince Charles makes record 14m

The Prince of Wales's private income should be fully investigated by Parliament, a senior member of the Commons Public Accounts Committee (PAC) said yesterday after the Prince was revealed to have received a record 14m last year.

http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/pol...cle1099178.ece

Yet another misleading headline - it is one MP!

Sir Michael is his personal secretary, not his accountant, financial or tax advisor. :) I am certain, from what we have seen over the years, that Charles does have very astute business advisors plus his own business acumen.
I don't think the figures are 'fixed' for Camilla, as Sir Michael explains, the house was already there etc. Charles seems more than happy to pay for Camilla out of his own pocket, much like any devoted husband.

I am not hinting that Prince Charles is cheating on the public money. I trust him as a very honest man who probably is not capable to say a white lie.Charles has his auditor to review his finance review as well. People in his office knew the MPs targeting Charles and Camilla. To avoid any controversy and sensitivity, Charles may just use his personal money to fund Camilla's life like what he did in the past. He is such a loving and doting husband who will do everything to please his wife. I will rank Prince Charles as Top1 loving and doting husband before Beckham and Tony Blair.
The sun joked that Prince Charles was the meanest husband in the country becaus he cut his personal expenditure while he makes more money.Such a laugh and I thought one second then what the paper meant. Charles is a doting brother and a doting father and I am not surprised to see him as a very doting husband. As long as his loved ones are happy, he will be happy. He will be that good. :p
