Swords do quiet well with royal icing, but there is a knack to it.

Would I be wrong in surmising that Charles has had more than a little experience leading to expertise?

Yes, I think you could say he has had plenty of practise.

I am quite puzzled with the term "kirking" of Holyrood. What does that term mean? Does it mean attending the openingof the Scottish Parliament?

I believe it is a church service held before the opening of the Parliament (which I believe is on 30 June).

Thanks for clarifying that for me. I know that "kirk" relates to church, but I didn't know what "kirking" was.

You are right it is an ecumenical service of blessing, but the Scottish parliament was sworn in today but delayed the opening until the 14th May 2007.

An article by The Prince of Wales for the Newspaper Society's Local Newspaper Week (7th – 13th May 2007)

I could not be more pleased that this year’s Local Newspaper Week will have an environmental theme. Local newspapers are at the very heart of the communities they serve and play an extraordinarily important role in shaping local agendas and priorities.

Princely sum for trust would be money well spent

THERE are plenty of groups out there claiming to help small companies, but few can claim to work harder than the Prince's Scottish Youth Business Trust. This Glasgow-based charity, which was set up by Prince Charles in 1989, helps aspiring entrepreneurs aged 26 or under throughout most of Scotland.

When i read that the Prince does not join Camilla on the cruise and that he will not spent, like every year, some days at the monastery in Greece, and then today i´ve heard that Harry will not serve in Iraq, i can now imagine that Charles cancelled the trip because of that.
Maybe Harry needs his father now, and Charles doesn´t want to spent some holidays when his son has such a hard time.
But this are only speculations without any source....

milla Ca, why don´t you posture as a "royal aid" and sell the story to Daily Mail.I´m pretty sure it will work.
