The Prince of Wales has recorded two of his favourite Robert Burns' poems for a BBC Scotland audio project.

This has 'My Hearts in the Highlands' recording on the site.

The Prince of Wales is moving his Duchy Originals brand into complementary medicines, selling "herbal tinctures" in Boots from this weekend.

"As fair thou art, my bonnie lass,
so deep in love am I,
And I will love thee still, my dear,
till a' the seas gang dry.

"Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
and the rocks melt wi' the sun!
And I will love thee still, my dear,
while the sands of life shall run."

The words send shivers down my spine. I can't help thinking Charles is not just reciting the words of a favourite poem.

I think both his choices are very telling.

A Red, Red Rose

This one is a true Scots poem and so poignant for anyone who cannot stay, IMO.

My Hearts in the Highlands

This was funny, I wonder what Charles thinks about it.

A Scots Guard sentry on duty at Prince Charles' home has won support of his fellow soldiers after he lost his cool with a cheeky student mimicking his march.

Queen's guardsman wins pals' support following 'student attack' episode .:. NewKerala - India 's Top Online Newspaper

A guardsman on duty outside St James's Palace lashes out at a Colombian student mimicking his march.

Thank you for sending the two poems, Skydragon!
They are really nice and i´m sure they are both very special to HRH!

It had to be something good, he looks like he's splitting his sides.

Charles at 60 passionate person

Saw on CBC Canada a 2 hour special expounding the fact that he was years ahead on expounding global warming and indicating natural ways of farming instead of gm. It was very informative and really gave more info on his Prince Trust projects which I had not seen before and especially projects in Africa, etc.

Unhappy

It's unlikely he'll ever see the video but Prince Charles makes a fleeting and somewhat bizarre appearance in Oasis's latest offering.

Nice tie Prince Charles is wearing. Different from his usual diagonal striped & rather traditional ones.
