It's further evidence that the House of Windsor appears to be very much on its game as another sensitive and important element of the transition is successfully carried out. It will boost the confidence of team C&C and once again confirm to HM and her senior courtiers that C&C are up to the task.

We are witness to the latter stage of the reign of Elizabeth II. It should be reassuring to the supporters and well-wishers of the Monarchy and House of Windsor that each carefully planned stage of the transition has so far been smoothly implemented.

In King Charles III, Anthony Holden wrote:

To Charles the remnants of what was his grandfather's empire, and will one day be his own global kingdom, are of paramount importance. He shares his mother's deep-seated belief that it is among the contemporary monarch's primary duties to preserve the Commonwealth and promote its interests.

Prince Charles warned he would make New Zealanders "laugh out the other side of their faces" for repeatedly making fun of him falling off a horse, a letter set to be sold at auction has revealed.

The handwritten note, sent by the first in line to the throne to a friend in April 1981, has been published by British newspaper the Daily Mail.

It reveals that the Prince of Wales was so aggrieved by comments from New Zealanders about footage of him falling off his polo horse that he was determined to seek revenge.

In Christchurch he wrote: "kindless, fallacious remarks and references about falling off horses are beginning to get through to me.

"It seems as though the main thing they know about me out here! It all increases my determination to make them laugh out the other side of their faces one day!"

The Prince - who was only three months away from marrying Diana at the time - also used the written correspondence to bemoan his royal duties, describing them as 'nonsensical rubbish', the Daily Mail reported.

"The real problem is keeping up my enthusiasm on each new day because I am beginning to get fed up with the amount of nonsensical rubbish I take all day and every day!"

I guess it's one of the reasons why Charles has worked tirelessly over the years to make his voice heard, show his passions and shape his role into what it is today. It's hard to be taken serious.

Keating said retaining Prince Charles as head of state would be 'deeply sick'

As Australia prepares to greet Prince Charles next month, former outspoken Labour Prime Minister Paul Keating has pleaded for the future king to be dumped as the nation's next head of state.

He has urged Malcolm Turnbull, elected as the new Prime Minister following a party room coup against Tony Abbott last month to do all he can to remove Charles as head of state, because to retain him would be 'deeply sick'.

Insisting that Australia should make moves to becoming a republic, Mr Keating - no stranger to speaking his mind during his reign as a Labour Prime Minister - said that 'no great country has a monarch...of another country as their head of state.'

I don't think Paul Keating is listened to much by anyone nowadays. He's a 'yesterday's figure'. Even in his prime Keating was quite anti-British in his pronouncements.

Nothing new really. The fact remains that , as of today, only 39 % of the Australian public support an Australian republic, with about 19 % undecided.

I suspect it is not a difficult topic to raise for politicians seeking attention. Fact is, if the Aussies want a republic, they should get one. They seem to spend more time talking about it than actually doing anything about it.
