The future Edward VIII would be in second place having been Prince of Wales from his birth in 1841 and held the title until his accession in 1901.

You have an extra number with your King Edwards. Edward VIII is the one that abdicated. Edward VII, his grandfather, is the one you mean, Queen Victoria's heir.

George IV also spent a long time as Prince of Wales from 1762 to 1820. It's not surprising since QEII, Victoria and George III are the longest reigning British monarchs.

Edward VII wasn't Prince of Wales from his birth. He was created it a month later. Charles was created PoW when he was almost 10.

Regardless of numbers(!) how well did they serve out their apprentienceship?

Completely different era now of course, so you can't really compare.

Charles will be King in the next decade and I expext Camilla will be Queen (apologies if going off topic there).

If I had to put it into words, when comparing Charles to previous Princes of Wales, I would have to say that Charles rewrote, remodeled and redefined the role of The Prince of Wales. David (Edward VIII) really didn't put the heart and soul into the role that Charles has and those that preceded David lived in a totally different kind of a world.

Queen's top aide 'is ousted in power struggle' | Daily Mail Online


If it's true that Andrew is backing Charles on this, I wonder if he'll expect something in return?

Such as- official roles for his daughters?
Or- a title for their husbands?

Somehow I don't think Andrew is motivated by brotherly love.
Although- he might be acting out of a personal grudge.

I dobut if he will get anything. I don't see Charles handing out titles to husbands.. and even less is he going to use B and Eug as Royal workers.

Apparently Andrew didn't like the fact Sir Christopher was a key figure behind his Trade Envoy role being taken off him and that Sir Christopher was the one who would veto Andrew using private jets and helicopters as often as he would like. So says the Times and I can't see Charles needing Andrew's support in this that much enough to give out titles or promises about future roles.

To be fair to david, he too lived in a very different world to Charles. Charles was able to have a career in the Navy, while David was never Allowed as far as I recall to have more than a completely ceremonial role in the mitliary. And Charles was able to then set up the PRinces Trust and make it a special job of his own, when he left the Navy, whereas that sort of Initiaitve was only in its infancy in the 1930s. David DID do a lot of boring tours, and he was involved in charity work, but I agree he didn't really have his heart in it, as Charles did. He got more an more bored iwht the ceremonial duties _ "princing" .. but I think he didn't really have the dedication to try and find something more "useful" to do. As he grew older as POW he foud solace in gardening and Fort Belvedere, but these were hobbies..
and when he and Wallis settled in Paris after the war, he could have tried to find a more meaningful life, there, set up a charity, or as a patron of the arts.. but he didn't seem to really want to do that although eh was bored.

So personal grudge it is. Pretty much what I figured. Thanks tommy100!

Oh come on guys, this is the Daily Mail, you know, the one with the made up stories and magic photos.

That you should pluck Andrew out of the story and bash him is beyond comprehension.

Regarding the personnel changes, it looks like there has been a 'shake-up', but the reasons could be multi-layered imo. What is being spun and what is actually taking place could be vastly divergent realities.

It occurs to me that Andrew is being being mentioned so that it becomes 'Charles and Andrew', rather than just Charles on his own. Perhaps between the lines, something is needing to happen and staff unwilling to bend to a new regime were getting in the way of it. Maybe Charles is monarch in all but name?

According to tommy100's comment it was the times that reported this, not the DM.

And just above mirabel posted this:

Interestingly, this departure was announced in July and all the tabloids, etc. seem to think we have the attention span of the average gnat!
