PRINCE Charles came unstuck over his green credentials yesterday as he showcased his organic food to showbusiness and sports stars at a Highgrove party.

Daily Express | UK News :: 'Somerset' jam Charles? Yours is from Norfolk

Prince Charles's struggling Duchy Originals food company is expected to avert the threat of humiliating financial collapse by announcing a rescue deal led by the supermarket group Waitrose

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/se...inals-waitrose

Prince Charles's struggling Duchy Originals business will today be rescued from a humiliating financial collapse by Waitrose.

Profits at his luxury foods company have slumped from £1.53million two years ago to £57,400 as many consumers shun their highly-priced products in the recession.

PRINCE Charles also visited Dartmoor to officially open the new Princetown Village Centre and visit the Duchy Square Centre for Creativity.
Charles has strong links to Princetown – his Duchy of Cornwall estate owns much of the land in the area including Dartmoor Prison, which it rents to the Ministry of Justice

Residents of a sleepy Somerset village have accused Prince Charles of undermining his credibility as the guardian of rural Britain by planning to build 2,000 homes on rolling pasture and an environmentally friendly beef farm.

Prince Charles: Duchy plan to concrete over green fields leads to outcry | UK news | The Guardian

and the Mail


Residents in an idyllic village have accused Prince Charles of 'damaging the environment' with plans to create 2,000 homes on their doorsteps.
The proposals include concreting over a large amount of rolling pastures and knocking down an environmentally friendly beef farm.
The Prince's investment portfolio, the Duchy of Cornwall, is considering the massive development on its land to meet government housing targets.

Not really.

The taxpayers pay for his security and that of Camilla and William and Harry.

Whenever any of them do an official duty e.g. William and Harry's recent tour to SA and Charles and Camilla's tour to Poland earlier this year are official tours and so the government foots the bill - just as they would if it was a politician or diplomat doing something.

The Duchy provides his private income to cover his personal expenses and the salaries for his staff and the expenses on a day to day basis for Camilla and probably something for William and Harry, although they are both independently wealthy due to Diana's divorce settlement.

Why is Prince Charles still paying for his sons staff and expenses. I thought they received their money from Diana's estate.

They recieved an inheritance from Diana, she has no estate.
That money has been invested in Charities or safely locked away somewhere.
Charles pays for them, because they are his sons.
Just like Prince Andrew pays for his daughters.

I am still not understanding this set up. His sons are over 25 and out of school. If they have income from whatever the source then shouldn't they pay for their own personal expenses and staff.

It just seems that if his sons paid for their own staff it would reduce some of the POW overhead-staff salaries, office expenses etc.
Maybe they do pay for their own personal needs and these expenses listed for Harry and William have to do with their official duties and charity roles.
The article is confusing.

Maybe the POW is paying to help his sons out. I do that all the time for my boys though they have plenty of money for their own things.

But the money that the boys use with undoubtedly come from the royals anyway.
They pay for everyday things like living arrangements, food etc.
But when it comes to things to do with the state. Like official engagements or the wages of there staff, that is paid by POW because they just can't afford everything.

I think that "estate" might have been used in the sense that it's used in Canada; it means whatever is left when a person dies. It a person is homeless and has only $5.00 in his pocket, that's his "estate."

Diana's estate has been invested, but not in charites as such.
They can only access the interest at the moment but when they turn 30 they will be able to access the capital.
They are independently wealthy from Charles but he pays for their official needs, when not paid for by the government, because that is expected.
Everyone has an estate - it is the legal term to cover all of your net worth - your home, jewels, paintings, investments, personal goods - everything you own is your estate in a legal sense. It's origins as a word came from the great estates but as other people started to leave things and particularly leave wills they used that same term and so it came to have a broader meaning than simple land.

Charles accused of cronyism for handing £900,000 of decorating work to Camilla's designer sister | Mail Online

Prince Charles faces accusations of 'cronyism' after paying his sister-in-law almost £900,000 to refurbish his holiday cottages.

Interior designer Annabel Elliot was employed to overhaul 19 properties owned by the heir to the throne through his Duchy of Cornwall estate, which are now rented out to holidaymakers.

I had to look up what "cronyism" is.
How about she was employed because she is an incredible good interior designer.

But she can't be good at anything - she is Camilla's sister and Charles employed her so that is proof positive that she is hopeless.

I don't see anything wrong with this, he must like Camilla's sister and her work.
