Private houses, if they have a mortgage on them, will have buildings insurance but contents insurance is optional.

Thanks Sky! I know things operate a bit differently than here. Info. is much appreciated!

I do love Oliver Creed: Royal Water is quite amazing.
Isis and Hermes 24 Faubourg, also preferred by Diana, are among my top favourite fragrances as well.


Charity Commission investigation

Quote:
The Charity Commission is investigating the relationship between Prince Charles and his charity the Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment.
The move follows a complaint made by anti-monarchy group Republic, which questioned the independence of the charity and whether it acts for the public good or is pursuing the prince's own personal agenda.
I'm not sure I entirely follow the logic: if it's Prince Charles' charity, doesn't it follow that it must pursue the goals and 'personal' agenda' set by the Prince?

The Prince of Wales has been criticised by some vetrans of the Parachute Regiemnt of which he is honory Colonel in Chief after he didnt attend the 65th Anniversary of the Battle of Arnhem.
Arnhem remembered: Veteran heroes return to battlefield on 65th anniversary | Mail Online

Personally i am surprised by this given that Charles seemed to push for an invitation to the D Day anniversary. I know the two events are different but the sentiments invloved are similar. If Charles saw it as necessary to attend the D-Day commemorations i would have expected him to want to attend this.

I noticed in the article that the invitation wasn't sent until June and yet we do know that the royals calendars are done six months or more in advance so he was only give three months notice.

The article also says that he declined due to 'other commitments' and then notices that he had no engagements on that day. Engagements don't necessarily equate to commitments as the commitments could have been private ones that don't make it into the official engagements category.

I just love the way The Mail (and other press) play with words to make the royals (except for their darling late Diana, Princess of Wales) look bad and so many of the British public fall for it hook, line and sinker.

I wonder who The Mail will turn on when they have successfully turned Britain into a Republic and it doesn't have the royals to pick on - and I do see that as the agenda of much of the British Press.

As Charles has never been know to shirk his duty to the armed forces, whatever the regiment, I would imagine it would have been impossible to cancel any engagements at short notice, (yes it was short notice), the fault lies with Shaw!

The two events are different, the D Day celebrations commemorates the end of the conflict, The Arnhem anniversary commemorates one event that took place during the war.
----------------------------
The spectacle on Saturday was watched by around 100 former paratroopers, veterans of the battle who attended the memorial service in the southern Dutch city where troops landed in September 1944.
However, there was one notable absence at the commemorations, the Parachute Regiment's Colonel-in-Chief, the Prince of Wales.

The Prince of Wales today called for public transport to be put at the heart of new developments as a way of achieving low carbon communities.

Charles's comments were made in a new report entitled Building for the Future, where the royal also highlighted how green building materials could help tackle the problem of climate change

Trowbridge department store HJ Knee Ltd has received a letter of support from Prince Charles on reaching its 130th birthday.
The family-run business in Fore Street received the letter of congratulations last week and general manager Jonathan Knee says staff are 'over the moon'

The Court Circular for 22nd September states that the Scottish 1st Minister Alec Sammond MP has just departed Balmoral having stayed for the weekend. This would esplain the 'private engagement' that had to take precedence over the Arnhem celebrations, as the Prince always helps the Queen entertain him when he stays on the Scottish estate. No doubt if Prince Charles had opted to visit Arnhem instead of staying at Balmoral the Scottish edition of the Daily Mail would have given him a kicking!!

Prince Charles is at the centre of a row for axeing his personal florist just weeks after her husband died in an apparent suicide.

Sarah Champier-Lowe has been made redundant from her post at Highgrove following what Royal sources have described as a ‘staffing review

The intensive courting of the House of Windsor by the Scottish National Party’s leadership - or perhaps it is the other way around - continues apace.
Following the First Minister’s overnight stay with the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh at Balmoral last week, Alex Salmond has now had a high-level tęte-ŕ-tęte with Prince Charles, or the Duke of Rothesay, to give him his Scottish courtesy title.

Oh that looks lovely! You know, HRH could ask them to put a hamper together for a fund raiser for his trust. I would bid!

The Duke of Rothesay will retrace the steps of his grandmother this weekend when he travels to Dundee for a service marking the restoration of a famous memorial to the Black Watch.
Prince Charles will attend the rededication ceremony for the bronze statue of a Black Watch soldier at Powrie Brae on Sunday – 50 years after the Queen Mother unveiled the original memorial.

The clattering sound of a tumbling drinks tray pierced the friendly hubbub.

A woman guest had accidentally knocked it from the waitress's hands while standing up suddenly from her chair.
As staff at Highgrove, where Prince Charles was holding a seminar on the environment, scrabbled to collect the glasses which were rolling around the floor, the embarrassed guest offered her profuse apologies to elderly waitress Peggy Archer

The Prince of Wales attends the re-dedication service of one of The
Black Watch's most iconic memorials exactly 50 years after the Queen
Mother, unveiled the statue on the outskirts of the city of Dundee,
18 October, 2009.
The larger than life size bronze of a Black Watch soldier stands at
Powrie Brae against the backdrop of the Angus countryside and
commemorates the sacrifice of over 440 soldiers of the 4th and
5th Battalion Black Watch who died in the Second World War.
