Prince Charles the 30m furniture wrecker, by furious Antiques Roadshow expert | Mail Online

Quote:
A BBC Antiques Roadshow expert claims a 30million collection of furniture in a house that Prince Charles bought for the nation is at risk of being seriously damaged.
John Bly, the show’s furniture expert, says unique items at Dumfries House in Ayrshire have started cracking and shrinking because managers there may have failed to look after the collection properly

Hummmm...Charles at fault??? Some of the furniture dates back to the mid-1700s. There's been quite a lot of time to "abuse" the furnishings before PoW bought the place. If Mr. Bly is so concerned, perhaps he could volunteer to oversee the project.

Thank you both for the photos and updates! Too bad P Charles wasn't accompanied by the DOC during the re-opening of the Savoy hotel. Amira looked stunning and quite tall, almost as tall as the POW! Nice pictures!

According to this article, it was "for his services to British drama through his continued efforts to revive London's historic Old Vic Theater."

Warren, did you expect the Aga Khan could be mistaken for the spiritual teacher in pic 1?

Today, the Prince of Wales had two engagements, first an investiture ceremony at Buckingham
Palace and then he visited Lostwithiel in Cornwall following the recent floods.

** Prince praises resilience of flood victims **

And for everyone who does not know the Prince of Wales yet, the AP caption kindly helps out:

Quote:
Store owner Sue Read shows Britain's Prince Charles, whose son Prince William announced his engagement earlier this week, flood damaged wedding dresses
Of course it's not meant that way, but it's somehow inappropriate..

Prince Charles breaks royal protocol and signs autograph for Cornwall flood-hit family | Mail Online

This is the moment Prince Charles took pity on a flood-hit family and broke with Royal protocol - to sign an autograph.

The Prince of Wales whipped out his Royal Parker pen and scribbled 'Charles 2010' on a scrap of paper for the victims.

That story is truely lovely, but the DM has still managed to, IMO, put a sarcastic spin on it.
