Prince Charles Joins Race to Save the Albatross

LONDON, UK, November 7, 2006 (ENS) - On the eve of a TV movie premiere highlighting the plight of the albatross, Britain's Prince Charles said failure to save the Earth's largest flying sea birds from extinction would be "an appalling commentary on the way we treat the world." The Prince called upon food retailers to take the lead.

Charles demands help for a lost generation

The Prince of Wales will today highlight the plight of 1.2 million unemployed and under-educated young people facing a grim future because they have been abandoned "on the margins of society".

Before anyone reads this, can I be boring and point out the original article was from the News of the World!

Prince Charles dozes off at Armistice Day tribute

London, Nov 12 : Britain's Prince Charles drew disapproving glares from the Queen when he seemed to drop off to sleep at an Armistice Day tribute.

http://www.newkerala.com/news4.php?a...lnews&id=49620

How 'stern glances' from the Queen would have woken him I don't know and as he stood throughout the ceremony, I wonder how he managed to fall asleep at all!

Well I watched the whole thing and Charles didn't doze off once. Has anyone considered that he might have been praying?

Prince Charles 'nodded off' during PM's speech - report

Did Prince Charles fall asleep during Prime Minister Helen Clark's speech at the dedication of the New Zealand memorial in London at the weekend?

"I was surprised when I saw the prince, he looked asleep during New Zealand premier Helen Clark's speech," press photographer Simon Jones was quoted by the News of the World as saying.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,3859664a10,00.html

Lets take a guess, does Simon Jones work for tnow by any chance?:whistling

According to observers the prince's eyes closed and his head slumped onto his chest before he roused himself to look at his programme.
However, a spokeswoman for Clarence House denied Prince Charles fell asleep although one source admitted he might have had "a quiet moment of contemplation", the Sunday Times reported.

Nameless observers, nameless royal source, in this day and age, you'd think they could do better than that!

I thought dedication and remembrance ceremonies were supposed to include quiet contemplation, someone had better tell Charles to jump up and down clapping at the next one he attends!

Does anybody have seen a pic of that moment?
The photogragher Simon Jones tells the story that Charles did fall asleep, but why didn´t he make a pic to demonstrate it??
Every celebrity photogragher would like to have a photo like this....or would we then see only a praying Prince??

Exactly, why no money spinning photograph, it is supposed to be his job.

Clearly the notw are not as 'demanding' as TRF or most of us on here. They don't feel the need for evidence.

Thanks for the photo. I am sure about whether Prince Charles fell in sleep or not, but I don't think Queen looked straight to her son because her husband sat between them. It is an impossible situation. Is Charles too tired or the speech is too boring? We shall read PM Helen Clack's speech and find out then.

I almost forget HRH's birthday! It is alread Nov 14 in Australia. I did record his birthday in my reminder. Happy Birthday, Sir!

In the midst of the robust debate over the contemplative (or is he?) Prince of Wales, it's time to move to a new thread,
where other pressing issues of the moment can be discussed with equal vigour.

The Prince of Wales current events thread part 3: November 2006 can be found here.
