Isn't it annoying that everyones headline makes it sound as if it was Charles 'personally or with knowledge', when he undoubtedly wasn't involved in the decision or emails.

Particularly as Prince Charles only ever goes on official visits abroad at the request of either British gocernment's Foreign Office or the Queen. What must be more worrying for Prince Charles is that there seems to be someone in his office who is prepared to leak internal emails to the press to embarrass the Prince and senior staff on the very day that prince Charles was hosting a dinner for the World Jewish Relief Council of which he is patron. I find it rather difficult to believe that his Deputy Private Secretary would have added the Israeli ambassador to an internal email discussing how to deal with the said ambassador's request.

Well... Prince Charles and the Clarence house are quite "lucky" to employ individuals that tend to unintentionally leak information and cause international controversies.

Sorry, i can´t remember ´international controversies´who were caused by the Prince or his aides.
And i would be ´lucky´ if you couldn´t talk of individuals but of human beings or of persons when you write about the Princes´ staff.

It's interesting as both milla Ca and Al Bina are no native speakers of English. Alas, I'm none either. Still, for me, the expression "individual" has a certain degrading if not detractive ring to it. Maybe a native speaker is able to explain the finer meanings of the words Al Bina considers to be synonyms while milla and I object? Thank you very much in advance.

To me the word "individuals" used in that context rather than, for example, "people", is unusual but not disparaging in any way.

I am confused by what you mean as 'lucky' in this context.

I find it extremely unlucky and worrying, that any member of staff could or would release any information, intentional or not, that should have remained confidential. As for an 'international controversy', I have not heard of any plans to withdraw ambassadors!

I do apologize for creating the word controversy. Sharing the views of Roslyn, I have the following to note. I attend an American University, where the words “individual”, “human being”, “person”, “member”, and “employee” are used as synonyms without any negative meaning. By using the words “individuals” in my post, I wanted to point out at the members of Prince Charles’ staff that made a mistake. Nothing else really…

Usually any word placed in inverted commas takes on an opposite meaning (“lucky”= very unlucky). The inverted commas are used to enhance this opposite meaning.
Well, let us rephrase … not create international controversies, but “put the Clarence house and Prince Charles in a slightly awkward situation”. I assume it sounds more diplomatic.

Unfortunately, it just came across as a belief that it was done deliberately by Charles and/or his staff, to me.

I use inverted commas for many reasons when I am writing, but to my knowledge, have never used them to convey the opposite of the word I am using.

I can confidently predict the United Kingdom will never become a republic having been present the other day when Prince Charles celebrated his 59th Birthday at Jesus House, Cricklewood.
