Prince Charles' frustration over Afghanistan trip revealed in leaked Whitehall memo - Telegraph

A frank, high-level memo which lays bare the "frustration" felt over the Prince of Wales's trip to Afghanistan has been leaked in Whitehall, causing embarrassment to senior figures in the Foreign Office.

Written in florid, diplomatic prose by Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, Britain's special representative to Afghanistan, the email criticises the "all too credible incompetence" by Afghan officials which saw Hamid Karzai, the country's president, absent for the entirety of Prince Charles's two-day visit.

I had hoped that the Queen would attend, but this is wonderful for Charles.

Prince Charles signs the book of condolence for the Polish President
Lech Kaczynski, at the Polish Social and Cultural Association, in London,
April 21, 2010.

Prince Charles was unable to attend the state funeral of the Polish President
on April 18 as all UK flights were grounded due to ash from Iceland's volcano
covering most of Europe. The photos in the background are of Polish President
Lech Kaczynski, right, and former President of Poland Ryszard Kaczorowski.

Hardly a Prince of Maths!:The 1963 exercise book that reveals Charles¿s struggle with the subject ...but how would today¿s GCSE pupils compare? | Mail Online

The words and numbers are neatly written in fountain pen, the diagrams painstakingly drawn with ruler and pencil.

But the answers in this 1963 mathematics book suggest that while this schoolboy may have been conscientious, he was no budding Einstein.

What I, as a teacher, found interesting was the idea that today that standard would get an A at GCSE level but when he did his O levels a year or so later he failed it. And they tell us standards haven't dropped!!!

Sydney Sunday Telegraph - 25 April 2010

Royal visit [to Australia] next year

"Prince Charles is likely to fly to Australia next year for the 2011 Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting. He will attend with the Queen, or act in her place at the high-level talks. More than 50 world leaders and their partners will be in Perth for the 10-day event.

A Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman yesterday said talks had begun with Buckingham Palace about arrangements...On previous occasions [the CHOGM visit] has included a wider visit to other locations in the host nation or the region."

Well this is a bit of a milestone for Charles. Good on him!

Why do you say it is a milestone? To me a milestone is when something is done for the first time or a particularly stage/age in life is reached and I don't see that here.

He has attended before with the Queen. He has been to Australia before both with his parents and alone.

It was the 'Act in her place at high level talks' with 50 world leaders I believe Opal was refering to. Not just visit as her secondary person while QEII conducts meeting with equal Heads of State.

I would be surprised if Charles was to 'Act in her place at high level talks'. HM will no doubt be assisted by Charles, but I would be surprised if Charles was to act on her behalf.

Prince Charles, Prince of Wales attends a medal ceremony and
reception for sailors and their families of 857 Naval Air Squadron
for operational services in Afghanistan at Clarence House on April
30, 2010 in London, England.

I wonder what he was doing with his feet The lady in green seems
to react to it.
