Sarah Goodall the Palace Diary Book Review
Interesting book, very funny to read obviously. But maybe she wasn't fired because of jealousy on Camilla's part, but because someone realised that she had copied the prince's diaries not only for his friends to read but for hers as well... She was the one who leaked them to the press, wasn't she? In a position like hers discretion is the most important thing...

Prince Charles, Government of Jamaica to fund Trench Town housing

The Prince of Wales, in partnership with the Government of Jamaica, is set to unveil a massive housing development plan for Trench Town, a British newspaper reported yesterday. According to the Sunday Times, Prince Charles through his architectural charity, The Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment, has drawn up plans to redevelop the community by replacing concrete high-rise buildings with traditional lime-washed single-storey houses surrounded by palm trees

The interesting bits:

• Last year Charles's Duchy of Cornwall income increased by £1m to over £14 million (US$26.3m, Australian $35.3m);
• His expenditure, at £2.181m (US$4.1m, A$5.5m), was less than the previous year;
• He paid tax of £3.3m (US$6.2m, $A8.3m);
• The Prince of Wales, Camilla, William and Harry cost every man, woman and child in the country 3.5 pence a year (US 6½ cents, A 9 cents).

I thought they don't coast anything to British citizens. Aren't all their (Prince Charles, Camilla, William & Harry's) expences covered by the Duchy of Conrwall?

The cost to the UK public covers the running of Clarence House, some entertaining, things like that. I think 3.5 pence is very reasonable and that we all get value for money.

All their private costs are met by Charles, goodness, clothing the boys must cost him a fortune!

Will Prince Charles find peace in his new home in Transylvania?

The dusty, rutted track that leads to the remote village of Viscri in deepest Transylvania is an obstacle course of knee-deep pot-holes.

Interesting. I can understand and sympathise with both sides of the argument. I hope Charles can think up something that will strike a reasonable balance and doesn't end up responsible for spoiling that which he wants to preserve.

That's a beautiful rose, Jo. My father had quite the green thumb with roses. He always claimed that clay soil worked best and when he moved to the beach, he had a terrible time growing them.

Thanks, Skydragon!
I thought (and thanks again for correcting me) that all expences, including the running of the Clarence House, are paid from the Duchy.

3.5 pence seems very reasonable to me as well. You get the high quality for basically no money at all!

Prince Charles samples a jug of Yorkshire Wine. After New World producers Australia and Chile, French winegrowers could soon face new competition from Britain, as global warming helps grapes take root in milder cross-Channel climes, scientists say.
