Nobody told me the defence cuts were THIS bad! Prince Charles looks at home while trying his hand at the paintball range

Quote:
Whilst the Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge all marked St.David's Day with a spot of tea in London, Prince Charles was out trying his hand at paintballing. And he proved an excellent marksman, hitting the target repeatedly with just one hand.
Prince Charles looks positively fierce in this picture!

That's very funny. I hope he enjoyed himself.

I think he'd do just fine :wink:. He could learn from Robert Hardy, who's an expert .

Oh, what a treat that would be. I'd love to see that actually happen.

I think.... no I know, ( due to the humor of the people involved) that it would be priceless!

I agree the photos are hilarious.

What annoys me, though, is that Charles said that he'd already been paintballing with William and Harry. Why do we never hear about those sorts of things? I suppose the media is just more interested in him talking to tress etc. etc.

I agree Daria, but the press paint Charles as this old curmudgeon totally out of touch with the modern world. Well, people like that don't go paint balling with their sons!

Here's another gallery of pics from yesterday:


The Prince of Wales presented leeks to mark St David's Day to the 1st Battalion The Welsh Guards,
Cavalry Barracks, London when those funny pics were made.

Oh my Goodness, Your Royal Highness, what are you doing?!

As the saying goes, 'it is the quiet ones you have to worry about'. I think His Highness has a wicked sense of fun and humor. However, there's a time and a place for it, and he may feel a bit on the self-conscious side too. When he was driving the train last week, he really did look like a little boy on Christmas morning. He really hasn't lost the sense of wonder that is usually possessed by either young children, or people who appreciate the little things. I do think he is/was a very good and fun-loving Dad to his sons. His smile in certain instances says it all .

That's a good caption for that picture.

I personally think that the picture of Charles, that is painted by the press, is way off base. There is a lot more to him than reported. He was refused permission to marry his first love, Camilla, and he tried his best to do his duty for the country by marrying and having an heir. Now that he is finally happy, his good side is coming out.

The palace's official Flickr account has more pictures of Charles visiting the Welsh Guards. Personally, I adore this picture. Was the little girl showing Charles the bear or actually giving it to him as a gift?

What a lovely picture!
I think she's giving it to the Prince; the bear is very appropriately dressed for the occasion!

Because these are the sorts of things he, and they, enjoy/ed doing in private without having the press around them. They are entitled to do things in private without having the public told about their every move and we should respect them for that. I actually have more respect for the royals who keep their private time, particularly with their children, private and enjoy these sorts of times together without telling the press that they are doing them and expecting the press to cover their every move.

That is a very sweet picture. The little girl is so enthusiastic about giving the bear to His Highness.
