BTW, if I don't say thanks for all this info. THANKS!
Now, do the other Princes, Edward and Andrew wear kilts that are indicitive to their titles? (Such as York, Inverness, Killyleagh, Wessex and Severn respectively?)

I will try to pm you with the information!

HE'S seen service all over the world from the heat of Belize to the frozen wastes of the Arctic Circle.

A Falklands' veteran who spent the whole of the time in South Atlantic during the conflict … he's now a senior recruitment officer for the Army

Lowestoft Journal - Lowestoft man honoured by Prince Charles

Britain's Prince Charles "didn't believe in" the monarchy until 1977, a new book has claimed.
In his new book, 'Me: The Authorised Biography', Byron Rogers claims the royal couldn't see a future for his family until he saw how the public embraced his mother Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee.

The book is not prince Charles' biography but the authors!

Should we believe Byron Rogers?

It does make you wonder if Charles, or any royal in the world, wondered if monarchy was worth keeping.

One would have to have boundless self-confidence to look at the traditions of a dynasty and the example set by The Queen as Reigning Monarch and say "Oh yeah, I can do that easily!" Every Crown Prince or Crown Princess has suffered from self-doubt at some stage; the expectation is both enormous and unrelenting, and there's no (easy) way out.

IMO, every right minded person, at some point, questions their role in life and unlike Charles, many of us are able to walk away or change our destiny.

Enjoying the view, Charles? Prince of Wales smiles as highland dancer's skirt blows up

Quote:
First David Beckham was caught out eyeing up a group of pretty cheerleaders during a basketball game, then US President Barack Obama was picturing apparently admiring the rear of a young woman.

And now Princes Charles has been spotted enjoying the view as a Highland dancer revealed a little more than intended during the Mey Highland Games in northern Scotland.
In the first picture, Prince Charles is looking in a different direction. In the second one, the skirts look fine. In both cases, the skirts were disturbed in places that would make it extremely unlikely for Charles to see anything, even if he were looking.
The photographer did get an eyeful though.

Nevertheless I guess that he laughed about something else

Here are a few additional pics:

Britain's Prince Charles holds onto a rope as he prepares to start
the tug o'war competition during the Mey Highland Games in Caithness,
northern Scotland August 8, 2009. Prince Charles,who holds the title
of 'Chieftan' for the games, attends the annual event which takes place
near to the Castle of Mey which was the Queen Mother's official home
in Caithness.

They may have been private engagements or details might be released later.

“What do you say to the Prince of Wales?” asked Hurd, who works for the Dalton-based Carpet and Rug Institute. “What are we going to talk about? But he was so gracious. He puts you at ease immediately and makes the conversation very pleasant. I think he’s been doing this long enough that he understands that he can do that, and has worked very hard to make sure that people are at ease when they talk to him so they can carry on a conversation

The picture of the prince, with a stick and trying to play Tug of War is priceless. I agree with you Marsel, the pictures so nothing incrimnating. I just love the smirk on Sarkozy's face in the last picture of the article.

Prince Charles got a first hand account of the problems facing Hastings' fishing fleet at a royal reception.
Paul Joy, chairman of the Hastings' Fishermen's Protection Society and Stephen Potter of Hastings Borough Council, met the prince at an event at Clarence House in London - and made sure they left his royal highness in no doubt about the fishermen's plight.

Hastings fishermen take their plight to Prince Charles - Hastings Observer

Should we Unionists and monarchists be perturbed by the ever-closer relationship between the Royal house of Windsor and the man whose aim in life is to smash their United Kingdom? Not necessarily. At least that's what we're told. As befits his status as Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond – together with his wife, Moira – is accorded an overnight stay every August at Balmoral and has got to know the Queen very well since winning the Scottish elections in May 2007.

Has the heir to the British throne gone cuckoo and turned on his class, like a scorpion poisoning itself, or is he shining a bright light into the future?
To mention the Prince of Wales, Charles Windsor, is to stir up many things, especially in progressive, populist, socialist circles. Of course he is the beneficiary of an old, anti-democratic class system. He is a wealthy, large landowner, but hasn't done the sort of work you and I have to do to earn our way, pay our bills. His passport lists his occupation as: Prince of the United Kingdom of Great Britain.


Radical Prince?

I agree with a lot of what the author said about Prince Charles, especially the alternative medicine and farming-- except the author's take on Terrorists. They are terrorists and there is no other word to use except that.

Inspired, perhaps, by Hollywood's Walk of Fame, the Prince of Wales has created an eccentric tribute to the stars of his own universe.
