All I have to console myself is one of those indestructible flavourless modern things that masquerade as apples roday. I think they are actually manufactured in supermarkets and aren't real apples at all.

This is the silliest thing I ever heard of. Home gardeners have different needs than big commercial farms.

A regular home gardener with a small backyard and average size family doesn't need a plant that can withstand all weather conditions and produce bumper crops.

The majority of plants available to the home gardener today were designed for big commercial operations and produce too many vegetables than can be comfortably eaten by the average family. A lot of the vegetables go to waste.

Not according to Europe! Some people would rather mock Charles, than realise the want's and needs of the 'little people'. Years ago Charles was telling us all about the dangers of climate change, the benefits of organic foods, complementary medicines and only now are a lot more people understanding the truth of what he says.

Many people love the old architecture in our towns, it is only the 'experts' that love the modernistic buildings that rob the towns and cities of their identity, or admire the junk exhibited for the Turner prize. grrrrrrrr

Because some people only read the headline, they never know the substance of what Charles is saying.

I was in Frankfurt Germany years ago and my sister felt the same way. While walking along the river next to the 500 year old buildings, she turned to me and said that they needed to knock all those buildings done and build new ones. I almost died! She didn't have much to say about it again when visiting Switzerland later in the year because I gave her an earful. I love those beautiful villages from the British Isles to Germany and on to Italy and Czech Republic, etc etc., I would hate to see them go. I especially enjoyed sleeping in the old buildings that were turned into hotels.

I appreciate Charles in championing in to the saving of European classical architecture. I love the modern too, but they can be built outside a radius like what has been done in Paris keeping the inner city of Paris void of glass towers.

All of this is so true. The "big commerical" excuse is just corporate hogwash translated as "We don't want to invest the money in change."
They mock Charles as way of avoiding their own responsibility to listen to him.

My subject was 'completely inspiring', says young artist who painted Prince Charles

Prince Charles has suffered at the hands of artists in the past.
David Hockney famously accentuated his ears and a Ukrainian artist once depicted him as a kind of Blues Brothers character.

You're most welcome.
This is indeed a nice article that reviews all the years of fight and indeed, ridicule Prince Charles had to go through, before his work was acknowledge.
It's amusing that the man described as 'old-fashioned' has long been voicing opinions and pushing forward projects now called 'progressive'.


Larry King's regret
"Prince Charles has turned down all of my requests. I keep trying, though." Larry King Live host LARRY KING regrets he can't name the heir to the British throne among the 40,000 people he has interviewed during his 50 years as a broadcaster.

I've heard that his attention to detail is impeccable, and that's why he is a fabulous host, making people feel charmed and cared for. I think, on the flipside, he can be a nightmare of a guest though! Imagine the pressure on the host who has to receive him! I've heard that even though loads of people love him, no one wants him as a house guest, too much WORK! To say nothing of the royal protection squad patrolling the host's corridors, checking for bombs and stuff.... I bet he's as charming as everyone says, including his sons, but the "royal" bit (I could use another word that rhymns) must be a pain in the rear for all the "lucky" souls in the Highgrove Set.

Once Camilla is around him, everything will be fine. So just let the host invites both Charles and Camilla, everyone will be happier. Camilla certainly can make people happier in parties.

A special ability of the Prince seems to be that when he talks to you, he focuses his whole attention on you. He gives somebody the feeling that he/she is (for a moment) the most important person for him.
That makes him very special and when he looks at you with his really beautiful eyes, you melted away...

Everyone has friends with extra demands that they have to cater for and I am sure his real friends don't mind going the extra mile to ensure his stay is a pleasure for everyone.

It doesn't say a lot that these (to name a couple) are in front of Charles! Paul Dacre, Simon Cowell, Sir Richard Branson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Kate Moss.

Could someone explain how Kate Moss is an "influential person"?
Apart from notoriety and a dubious boyfriend, what exactly has she contributed to the public debate?
