What everyone is forgetting, is that if Charles had gone (with or without Camilla), The security would have been overwhelming for everyone.

He wanted his son's to shine on this, for them, very important occasion and that takes a big man.

CasiraghiTrio, i would understand that you are disappointed and sad when Charles ( and Camilla ) wouldn´t attend the memorial service for Diana. I think that is the event the Royal Family and first of them Charles will remember her.
The concert was from the beginning a plan and a wish of Diana´s boys. I think the decision that Charles and Camilla didn´t visit it was right.

You stated the essence of the matter very concisely. I don't (and won't) forget this. Coming down to reason, I am now feeling that both of them made the decision to stay away for deeply personal and emotional reasons, and I totally trust that their decision was not reached lightly. Whether they are right or wrong for their decision is neither here nor there. What is undisputed is that it was their personal right to stay away and I do empathize with the difficulty of reaching their decision. Whether it was because of security or concerns about upstaging the purpose, I do not care why, and am satisfied that they did what they believe was the right thing do, for all concerned. As long as they believe it was right, that is all that matters. Thank you, everyone who replied to these ponderings of mine, for helping me find my way back to reason.

And thanks of course for the news and the pics.

Prince Charles the only winner on a gloomy day
- Eco-friendly heir to the throne takes overnight train from London

Thanks to the elements, not one ball could be bowled in the one-off ODI between India and Pakistan for the Future Friendship Cup, on Tuesday, but it’s not that the rather dour Clydesdale Cricket Club didn’t see any action

I would say that as well, especially since I'm not a cricket fan.

A couple of articles about the Prince's visit to the flooded areas (thanks a lot milla Ca for posting the articles! ).

Charles wades in on tour of rain-lashed Yorkshire village

Impeccably dressed in a double-breasted grey suit and with a flower in his buttonhole, Prince Charles didn't exactly look the part for a visit to flood-devastated areas. But that didn't stop the concerned royal from jumping right in when he toured a South Yorkshire village left under five feet of water after a week of torrential downpours.


Charles takes to boat to view flood nightmare

Prince Charles has returned to Yorkshire this morning to visit one of the worst affected flooded areas.
The Prince of Wales visited South Yorkshire just days ago when he saw for himself the devastation in the flood-hit village of Catcliffe near Rotherham.
Today Charles returned to South Yorkshire, visiting Toll Bar, near Doncaster, where the waters are yet to recede than a week after torrential downpours battered the county.


Where were the prince's wellies?


It is not the most important question facing the flood-hit Yorkshire folk in Toll Bar, but it is the one causing the most bemusement. The prince knew that the village had been under water for nine days, so why did he arrive wearing a grey pin-striped suit with a flower in his buttonhole, and shiny brown shoes?

And a Gallery of Pictures from the visit

HRH visits the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The Prince of Wales visited the Foreign and Commonwealth Office today and took the opportunity to welcome the release of kidnapped BBC journalist Alan Johnson.
His Royal Highness praised staff at the Government department for their behind-the-scenes work. Johnston was freed on Wednesday after 114 days in captivity in Gaza City.
The Prince was joined by new Foreign Secretary David Miliband on his tour to meet civil servants.
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are among the United Kingdom's most important ambassadors.


I whole-hearedly agree with the last sentense.

What's the deal with those little kids at the Foreign Office? Was he visiting their in-house day care center or something?
Or did the Foreign Office lower their recruiting age considerably? ;-)

I assume those were the children of employers, who brought their little ones for the important event

They were invited to take their children along to the event, day care is not provided at most government offices.

Although sometimes I think the youngsters could probably do a better job than some of the older CS's!

Also, wellies would not have fit so conveniently inside those fancy little covers he got to put on his shoes at the sports centre! Though he did not seem to like that very much.

TRH are indeed excellent ambassadors for Britain. They are among a handful of the best Britain can offer up as examples to follow. I hope one day at their age in life I can consider myself half as well educated as them.
