Sorry if these were posted already. I just like these pics a lot. I haven't seen Prince Charles riding a horse in a long time. He looks very good. It looks like he was going at a nice gallop for awhile.
The caption says he went riding at Sandringham on 29 December.

2007 will go down in the history books as one of the most difficult that agriculture in this country has ever faced.
It is true that, at last, milk prices are climbing and certainly many arable farmers have had a good year, but floods followed by foot-and-mouth, then the arrival of bluetongue and huge rises in feed prices have presented many farmers with unprecedented challenges.

Where was Camilla? Or had she decided to spend Boxing Day onwards with her own family & 3-month old Lola? No wonder Prince Charles was so grumpy with the press - no wife or sons to keep him company. He should h ave stuck to his usual Boxing Day to New Years practice of the last 10 years i.e. spent it with Camilla.

articles about "King Charles III or King George VII" which I am not very willing to share them because the articles are hopeless.

The Prince of Wales has made his first appearance as a hologram in a bid to reduce the royal carbon footprint, and silence critics who accuse him of failing to live by his green principles.


Environmental enthusiast Prince Charles has delivered a speech to a green energy conference in Abu Dhabi - as a hologram. He may not be known as the most modern of men, but the Prince of Wales' concern for the planet has catapulted him straight into the 21st Century.

Thank you iceflower and milla Ca.
I don't eat meat and when I smelt and then saw a Mutton dish being served up a short time ago, I was sooo glad that I am a vegetarian! But to each his own!

But there is a definite difference between mutton and lamb - while I love lamb, I turned vegetarian, too, for that course when I was offered a mutton dish in Scotland as part of a dinner. But I really enjoy a good haggis (this is a classical starter dish at the dinners on media trips organised for journalists to get a "glimpse of Scotland" or visits to Malt destilleries). I'm close to know the "Ode to a haggis" by heart by now.

The worst thing that I had in Scotland was the lamb kidneys one morning at Culloden House Hotel which close to Inverness, because they had not been watered, so featured a certain "haut gout"... Brrr.... But the rest of the food there was lovely.

That's interesting as we have such initiatives here in Bavaria as well. In one case about 30 gastronomers have formed a group which employs a shepheard to walk with his sheep the hills in a natural preservation area. In autumn, some sheep are butchered and the meat goes to the restaurants as part of their local speciality programme. I could sample several dishes and really, the taste of the meat was better than most lamb I had had before. So for gourmets meat like this surely is interesting and the prices the producers need will be payed if the quality is good.

Thanks milla Ca. Watching that video I was struck by how happy and well Charles looked. The strain of the previous years seem to be going. So pleased

Thank you for the articles milla Ca. I'm sure he is relieved that he is still reasonably free to work for the many causes that are close to his heart.

It sounds wonderful, lets hope this one, when built will not be filled in the evening by yobs, hanging about.
