As you say, a good summary. Why should Charles pander to the media, they seem incapable of telling the absolute truth about anything. Even so called 'respected' channels like the BBC are guilty of jumping the gun or getting hold of the wrong end of the stick! The breaking news story where they give everyone the facts and then it has to be altered but, still differs wildly from Sky, ITV and all the other news sources. The newspaper headlines that with the absence of a vital word or the insertion of one gives a different slant on the true story! They make me !

Paragraph #6 - very interesting that Prince Charles visited Nepal with his late wife in 2001. Proof reading seems to be a lost art!

Don't know what they meant but I had a fit when I first read it. I mean they could check (if not know) a little and unknown fact like that!

Prince's slap to Scottish salmon with Alaskan order for Highland smokery

THE Prince of Wales was yesterday accused of snubbing Scottish salmon after it was revealed he has ordered Alaskan fish to sell through his food company.

Knowing what goes into Salmon on the fishfarms and seeing how they are kept, I don't blame him at all.

PETA Vows to Hound the Prince Until the Use of Bearskin Hats Is Ended

Prince Charles is in for a bear of a time: A PETA member dressed in a bear costume has vowed to follow Prince Charles to all his upcoming public engagements. Waving a sign reading, “Save My Skin”, PETA’s “bear” will greet Prince Charles on Tuesday during his visit to the Warwickshire County Cricket Ground. The “bear” will continue to be present at every upcoming royal engagement until Prince Charles convinces Queen Elizabeth II to switch to faux fur for the Buckingham Palace Guards’ ceremonial bearskin hats.

Now I love animals but seriously, does PETA not have anything better to do? They are more bloodthirsty than some of the hunters they stalk.

I am sure the guardsmen will also give a hearty cheer when these ridiculous, heavy, hot and smelly hats are replaced!

At our 2006 Diocesan Synod in the Diocese of Christchurch NZ it was noted by one Parish Representative that we could begin our morning services with the Book of Common Prayer and that the same power and majesty was repeated around the world for the following 24 hours. Pretty amazing.

Prince Charles over-eggs the royal prerogative

THE list of the Prince of Wales’s idiosyncracies has grown longer. Alongside the squeezing of toothpaste on to his brush by footmen and the one-sided conversations with plants can be added his fussiness about boiled eggs.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...371689,00.html

New book reveals Charles's seven egg habit

With power comes the obligation to reach agonising decisions: completely runny, just set, soft-boiled or as hard-boiled as the rock of ages?


http://www.guardian.co.uk/monarchy/s...rc=rss&feed=11

http://www.guardian.co.uk/monarchy/s...src=rss&feed=1

I would think that by only writing memo's to Burrell (if indeed it was true), Charles shows he judged the man correctly.
As for the eggs, I'm fussy too and I talk to my animals, don't we all?

This article has to be one of the most stupid, I have ever read: what does it matter how PoW prefers the eggs boiled?
I have my own preferences and like when eggs are prepared exactly as I like it. Apparanntely is called over-fussing now.

Skydragon, I am joining, anyone, who has an animal, is definitely talking to them. I talk to my horses and no one can change my mind that they understand me.

Prince Charles' aides dip into boiled egg story

(Reuters) - In an unusual move, aides to Prince Charles denied a report on Saturday that the heir-to-the-throne's staff have to cook him seven boiled eggs to allow him to choose one with the perfect consistency.
