The Nature of Royalty

Highgrove is where Prince Charles cultivates his organic worldview.

He calls it Sanctuary but it´s his sanctuary, a quirky small retreat of stone and plaster, blessed by the bishop of London and laid out as four semicircles attached to the cube in adherence to sacred geometric principles. The bowed wooden door has on lock but four wooden knobs.

I believe that Prince Charles was doing what most husbands do: making a little joke. I thought it was sweet--shows that they have a good relationship with each other.

I was on the Prince of Wales' website and found a wonderful link to a summary of the past year:
The Prince of Wales - Focus
In particular, I enjoyed reading about the month of September when the Prince spoke of the need for children to understand where their food comes from as he launched the Year of Food and Farming at Home Farm on the Highgrove estate in Tetbury, Gloucestershire. I think that Charles is a wonderful role model for good nutrition in world filled with obesity. It is alarming to me how many overweight children are out there who chug soda and eat candy bars daily!

Also, while on the site I went to the children's section and I have to say that I enjoyed it a great deal. My son also enjoyed it--he is 7 and has Autism and he loved, loved, LOVED the slider puzzles. He had a wonderful time with those! I think it is so thoughful of the Prince to include a children's section on his website. I would love to write him and the Duchess and tell him how much my son enjoyed the puzzles--but I confess I do not know how to properly address the envelope! Would it be:
HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall
Clarence House, London
SW1A 1BA

Is that correct?
Thanks to all!

Prince Charles' garden at his Highgrove estate has won acclaim for its overall sustainability. Jeffrey Stann, a landscape designer in Chevy Chase, Md., finds inspiration in a more specific feature of the green prince's garden.

Thank you very much for the article, Gisela, I really enjoyed reading it - and how I look forward to my next trip to England...

Quote from this article:

Now it has English and Welsh oak floors, with reclaimed terracotta tiles in the courtyard, where many of the plants the prince reputedly engages in conversation will be on sale.

End of quote.

I have to have such a plant - just imagine: owning a plant that has talked to HRH.

Getting dug in at Highgrove for the Prince of Wales
April 25
(...) Goodenough, 47, has just been awarded one of the most demanding jobs in horticulture. Highgrove is the Prince of Wales's sanctuary, and its garden the place where he gives free expression to his interests and beliefs.

I guess this means it's off the reading list for the TRF Book Club.

Here's an article on Highgrove from the Telegraph that highlights Charles' emphasis on environmental sustainability in design. I think he has some really great ideas here, and he should be much more well-known for this sort of design. (If this is better suited to another thread, go ahead and move it. I'm still figuring out the thread order here.)

In farming, Prince Charles knows that the old ways are the new ways

Quote:
The magnificent, somewhat eccentric, gardens include intricate topiary (which dates back to classical times), Victorian stumperies, willow beds supplying withies, and reed beds to treat the sewage. They receive no chemical fertilisers or pesticides, or even peat, relying instead on homemade compost. And the estate farm has famously been organic for a quarter of a century, practising an age-old rotation, powered by clover, which is grown with grass on each field for three years, to provide grazing and build up nitrogen in the soil for subsequent crops.
