I realise that the poppy can be worn at any time bu I just thought that it was odd for him to wear it a whole month in Advance.
I think the pic in the D.... Mail isn´t made this year ( it could be from 2004)
Here is the pic with the Queen, Prince Charles and all recipients of the Order of Merit made in October 2007:

If i´m right, Charles doesn´t wear a poppy yet.

Sorry for my ignorance but what is the significance of a poppy in the Prince of Wales' lapel.

The Daily Mail picture is old-Nelson Mandela is on it.

Thanks for confirming this, the picture is old, though Nelson Mandela is still a member of the Order.

Also the Poppy is worn in the UK and other commonwealth Realms to remember the dead from conflict since the 1st World War, it is usually worn from c. 1st Nov. until Remembrance Day or Remembrance Sunday, depending on which is later.

Thank You milla Ca, I hadn't seen the picture RoyalProtocol was talking about and I did find it a little strange because, as I said he didn't have one on at the memorial dedication last week.

The Poppies will go on sale this year (14 days before RS) on 28.10.07, so I believe.

The poppies are worn because in World War One the Western Front contained in the soil thousands of poppy seeds, all lying dormant. They would have lain there for years more, but the battles being fought there churned up the soil so much that the poppies bloomed like never before. The most famous bloom of poppies in the war was in Ypres, a town in Flanders, Belgium, which was crucial to the Allied defence. There were three battles there, but it was the second, which was calamitous to the allies since it heralded the first use of the new chlorine gas the Germans were experimenting with, which brought forth the poppies in greatest abundance, and inspired the Canadian soldier, Major John McCrae, to write his most famous poem. This, in turn, inspired the British Legion to adopt the poppy as their emblem.

Taken from the following site as they explain it better than I could hope to.

BBC - h2g2 - Remembrance Day - Poppy Day - A653924

Thank you love_cc, for all the articles!

Hurrah for Charles on all these issues, but especially for 'wading in' over the treatment of British troops!

Charles points the way again!
First with his invitation of the soldiers to Birkhall to honour the troops and to demonstrate against their treatment.
Second with his constantly work for the environment.

Well done Charles !

David Lloyd George is at last getting the proper commemoration his leadership deserved

Our most radical PM | Comment | Guardian Unlimited Politics

PRINCE Charles was last night praised for personally honouring Iraq veterans at his private Scottish residence, but questions were asked as to why the task had fallen to him rather than political and military leaders

http://news.scotsman.com/scotland.cfm?id=1682032007
From the article -

Captain Susan Duthie, 37, a bank worker from Perth, was one of six women who served in Iraq with the company. She described it as "a nice surprise".
"Charles certainly takes an interest in what we are doing as he sent us messages and telegrams of good wishes when we were away," she said. "It is a good feeling to know there is someone so important backing you."

Pics 26.10.2007

Avalon, I totally agree with you about that, and milla Ca, you've
perfectly chosen the best pics from today again

Charles had another official event today:

The Prince of Wales meets parachutists during a demostration at the
Training School inside RAF Brize Norton. October 26, 2007. He was
reunited today with the man who taught him to parachute-jump 28
years ago. Charles returned to the Royal Air Force's Parachute Training
School at the Brize Norton base in Oxfordshire for the first time since 1978.
