Always amazes me how you Russians can do that! My ex used to pick chantrelles off the mountain. We had morels in Eastern Oregon. Always a treat. And not long in season so I would imagine Prince Charles thought he could ALWAYs go grouse hunting but had a finite amount of time for the mushrooms.

Perhaps PoW no longer enjoys the noise of shooting. Mushroom picking is a good alternative.

Those are nice memories, Daria, and I'd definitely choose mushroom picking over grouse hunting any day, too, as long as I knew how to identify the edible mushrooms! That seems unusual that Prince Charles chose to do that rather than hunting; seems like his interests are changing or perhaps his eyesight is getting less keen. I wonder if he cooks up his own mushrooms or hands them over to the cook. By the way, all he needed was a red cape and hood to accompany that huge basket!

Identifying edible mushrooms is not easy. I remember always spotting the poisonous ones .

The image of His Highness is a red cape and hood is too funny . 'Little Red Riding Hood' will now make me laugh no matter what.

Obviously the DM is not familiar with Duchy laws and is looking to make headlines.

An article from The Telegraph which deals with the issue of ministers seeking the Prince's permission before approving bills. Apparently this is only when the bills could effect the Duchy of Cornwall and his interests there.

I didn't know he was going. I though he was going to Africa with the Duchess of Cornwall. Any idea what is in the agenda or him in Kuwait?

He attended the funeral of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, which is why Catherine stood in for her father in law at an engagement last week. But neither Clarence House nor BP list any engagements for Charles.

Anyone knows news about his trip to Africa? Wasn't it suppose to start today? I'm totally confused...
I read somewhere that he and Camilla were going to Africa from 02/11 to 09/11? I might be wrong...
