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!

None of this has been confirmed. Today (14/9) the British Foreign Secretary has strongly condemned actions in Myanmar.

It is for the British Gov to decide - Charles is a servant of the Government.

MY own view is that what is happening is despicable but that perhaps words from someone considered a friend can assist.

I would be surprised if it happened considering todays statement.
I don't disagree with you but, to my knowledge, the trip is still on. Even if it is cancelled, the question remains why it was announced in the first place. These types of trips are usually very well choreographed.

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!

I'll be interested to see how the British Govt. reacts to the further unrest and flow of refugees to Bangladesh. As we know Royal visits to other states are planned and scheduled a year or two in advance. If the crisis remains ongoing or worsens the Govt. may cancel, but we can only wait and see.

Actually, the trip to Myanmar has not been "cancelled" because it was never a confirmed trip.

Speculation, nothing more.

And the DM always personalise it, esp with Prince Charles - it is C&FO decision but wouldn't get the clicks

The RF don't do political (well Charles may waver every so often, but nothing too major!), so no surprise there!

Its a good picture of Charles and Camilla but I have to say I'm not a fan of this year's card. I liked the ones where they used a candid picture of themselves doing something during the year rather than a portrait.

The photograph was taken by Hugo Burnand at Highgrove in July during the private 70th Birthday party of The Duchess of Cornwall.

Some of you may have seen those ridiculous videos on Youtube claiming that the Queen has decreed that William will succeed her on the throne rather than Charles. Anyone with the least bit of common sense knows that the Queen has no authority to do this, but one woman has posted comments stating that Charles has stated "on many occasions" that he doesn't want to become King and says he has issued an edict stating that William will be the next King. Has anyone came across any statement from Charles saying he doesn't want to be King?
