Earlier someone suggested Edward would possibly take over the running of Sandringham. Which I don't think very likely.

These articles I think were provided as 'evidence' Charles is running the show.

Interesting. I was thinking that Charles and in future William will have control of Sandringham and Balmoral as, after all, one day they will own it.

Edward could help out by becoming Ranger of Windsor Great Park. after all it's on his doorstep!

Not sure where this should go but it is of interest. It's all in the way it's worded, really hope Charles wasn't the royal who helped him

Prince Charles DENIES intervening to help bishop Peter Ball accused of sex offences | Daily Mail Online

This doesn't belong on this thread. This is speculative gossip, unsubstantiated and therefore not meeting this forums rules, IMO.

Moderators may, of course, not agree.

Well there is this part

A spokesman for Charles insisted: 'The Prince of Wales made no intervention in the judicial process on behalf of Peter Ball.'

However he failed to deny there had been a letter in support of Ball.

I will leave to the mods

I think we have a few issues here.

Ball was sentenced, and the sentencing judge noted in his sentencing remarks that he had received testimonials "from some 17 individuals, from widely differing walks of life, each of whom provides a picture of you at various stages of your long life, including currently, and each of whom has, in detail, described your immense positive qualities: a charismatic, empathetic, humble, holy man. Each of them urges me to show you the kindness and mercy which you, in their experience, had shown to them and others, often in the most extreme of circumstances." The names of those 17 testimonial-makers were not stated. The official record of the sentencing remarks is available here: https://www.judiciary.gov.uk/wp-cont...sentencing.pdf

This is standard procedure in the case of sentencing. If the procedure there is the same as it is here, these testimonials would each have stated the maker was aware of the crimes Ball had committed and, typically, would say it was out of character for the man they knew. The judge goes on to mention that he has to achieve justice not just for his victims but also for Ball: a man who had done a lot of good, often at the same time he had done a lot of harm.

It also appears to be the case that back in the 1990s, there were numerous phone calls and "two thousand letters of support...including letters from cabinet ministers and Royal Family". This was said in court at the Old Bailey by prosecutor Bobbie Cheema-Grubb QC, who went on to say that those persons might not have known of the full facts of the case.

The member of the Royal Family was not named in court, and a spokesman for Charles has stated, "The Prince of Wales made no intervention in the judicial process on behalf of Peter Ball."

This is not idle gossip, they are statements made by judicial and legal officers in Court, and I think the circumstances go well beyond speculative, unsubstantiated, gossip. Charles is known to have been a supporter of Ball, and I would like to know what his spokesmen meant by "intervention" and "judicial process". I think the fact that Charles may have made a submission on sentencing, or in the past during the initial investigations, is a valid subject for discussion on this forum, though not, perhaps, in this particular thread.

With what's coming out with our Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (Aus ) it seems so much was brushed aside and people stood with the abuser. It appears a lot really thought it wasn't that bad. Now 40 years later the victims are coming forward and telling their story. So I don't automatically say oh no such and such would not have done that or stood by someone who did these things. I'm not saying Prince Charles did support him but I'm not saying he didn't because he's royal or seems to be a good and kind person. Good men did protect the abusers and thought they were doing the right thing for everyone.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt
Prince Charles is losing one of his key aides, Kristina Kyriacou who was his Communications Secretary.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt
No explanation has been provided as to why after what's been described as "loyal" service, Kristina Kyriacou is leaving.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt
In an unusual (unique?) move, the news of Kristina Kyriacou's departure came from Prince Charles' Private Secretary.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt
Kristina Kyriacou was the press officer who had an "encounter" with @MichaelLCrick 's microphone.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt
With Kristina Kyriacou's departure, it'll be interesting to see if there's a return in 2016 to a unified press office .

She's a hard working senior royal, she is a great consort for Charles and she's very nice. I think she will do well as HRH The Princess Consort or even Queen.

I really like how Camilla make sure to smile for the media.nshe take her time to pose and give them a great picture. Her step-daughter in law would do the same thing if she didn't take on William's attitude towards the media.

When the time does come, one thing I think we can be assured of is that no matter what Camilla is "known" as be it Queen or Princess Consort, Camilla will be the last in line to make waves or throw a temper tantrum. She will be more concerned about supporting her King and acting positively in her role no matter what she is called.

Well, we are now getting closer to this issue than ever before. I just hope whatever title she takes on, the decision will be respected. The job will be the same.

I agree. Camilla has shown real class and support of her husband since their marriage. She has done a great job at his side. I see nothing changing when he becomes king.

I for one would like her to be queen consort. I respect her decision to not be referred to as Princess of Wales. There were too many shadows to step on, and respect for her stepsons. But Diana was never queen consort. Camilla is Charles' wife, has served faithfully for over 10 years as his support/wife, and she will continue to do so when he is king. If she does go by princess consort I hope it truly is her choice and not because she feels any pressure.

Nicely said, Countessmeout. I agree. If princess consort is really what Camilla wants (and I could see where it might be, she is so beyond pretension) then let it be.
