I think Camilla should be known as Queen when Charles becomes King,but if it isn't going to happen (which looks quite possible) then i don't think it would really make too much difference.We all know the truth anyway...CHARLES LOVES CAMILLA....CAMILLA LOVES CHARLES! We know she is always going to be there for him,supporting him like she has for the past year,so therefore i really don't think it matters like that!

I do believe the author needs a proofreader/fact checker. Prince Charles is 58, not 57 years old. His grandfather (King George VI) was not POW in 1926 - the year that The POW Secondary School was founded.
But my favorite sentence is this one: "A British standby "Over the Horizon Force" is positioned in London, ready to fly to Freetown within 24 hours in response to security threats, according to diplomatic sources." Not what I would call a rapid response from a team that's on standby!

Physicians link to prince's home

A legendary family of healers may have prompted Prince Charles to choose the Carmarthenshire hamlet of Myddfai as the location of his first Welsh home.

'Charles effect' reopens village pub

IT MAY only be three days since it was revealed that Prince Charles has bought a home in Wales, but the news is already having a knock-on effect on local business.

You are most welcome, Avalon
Me, I do not only like the hat, but also his whole outfit, in my eyes Charles does look best in that kind of clothes. Looking at these pics you can easily imagine him leading a private life in the countryside..

Prince Charles prepares for West African trip

Last minute preparations were under way today for a visit by the Prince of Wales to Sierra Leone. Charles' short trip to the West African country is seen as a stir to its reconstruction after a decade-long civil war left the economy and infrastructure in tatters.

The battle over the publication of the Prince of Wales´s personal diaries goes to the Court of Appeal tomorrow.
In the article, it said "The journal was one of eight handed over to the newspaper by a disaffected former secretary in the prince's office."

Who was that person and didn't that person commit a crime for stealing the journals only to give them to a newspaper? I have read some of the passages of the diaries and I rather like hearing the honest opinions of the prince regarding those current affairs he was involved in. Especially what he thought about the Chinese.

I especially took notice in the parts about the yacht and its last journey. A somewhat sad eptitath of the state of affairs of England and the British Monarchy.

The little witch was called Sarah Goodall, who by all accounts forgot she was an employee and not a 'friend'. It is a great pity that she has not, as yet, been prosecuted for theft!

Here is the link to the previous discussions.

The new website looks wonderful. I'm glad to see Prince Charles embracing the internet by realizing its potential to be a small way of reinvigorating the monarchy for the internet generation. The old website of HRH was very, very dated (kind of like some of the other websites from certain royal families - Belgium, Norway, Monaco, even Spain) and the new one is very much in tune with the beautiful and elegant websites of some of the other royal families (including the British main monarchy site, as well as Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands). I'm going to enjoy going through all the new stuff on the site today.

Thanks for the BBC article, milla Ca, I really enjoyed the video!

Prince Charles visits Sierra Leone

Thousands of people flocked to see Britain's Prince Charles when he arrived in Sierra Leone today on his first ever visit to the west African country.
The heir to the British throne is making the trip, according to diplomatic sources, to help cement ties between Britain and its former colony after the west African state emerged from a brutal 10-year-long civil war.
