How would you feel if he took Easyjet but arrived needing time to recover, and even to change his clothes as he would be crumpled? That would be a bad impression for a representative of the British people (and he has been asked to do this visit by the government so he is representing both the government and the people.

Please note that there is no need to put the word "Prince" in inverted commas. It is his title given to him by Letters Patent in 1948 by his grandfather George VI.

He is a wonderful Prince of Wales and the best prepared future king in history. His son, William on the other hand, has done nothing to indicate that he is even interested in the job.

Hopefully William won't become King until he is married and has been able to be a father without the pressure of Kingship (i.e. in at least 30 years time).

Prince William is still an immature boy who has a lot of growing up to do, yes he is personable, handsome (in a way), and intime I think he will make a great King, it's time that is needed. Prince Charles on the other hand has shown over and over again his dedication to the job, many of his views are now no longer on the outer and while it is neccessary to criticize, when it is needed, this is not one of those times. Prince Charles has a job to do that requires certain standards, that we demand, and he cannot do that while travelling in a cheap airline. He is an easy target for those people who don't think.

I couldn't agree more.

I will always take the proven commodity (Charles) over the green and untried (William).

I'm sorry that you consider yourself a 'lesser person'. Charles has done more than most for environmental issues, most wouldn't even have heard of of them if not for people like Charles and Al Gore! Far from being behind the times, Charles was trying to tell the world about the environment and global warming many, many years ago!

Obviously you don't understand the laws of the land with regard to who becomes the next monarch and like many, I want nothing more than for Charles to take his rightful place as our next monarch.

For those who are interested, you can see Prince Charles speaking at a Conference on the Environment at the Italian Parliament right now:
Camera dei Deputati - XVI legislatura - Servizi ai cittadini

I have just found out that unfortunately it is dubbed in Italian!

Those who live in solar houses shouldn't throw stones, and yet an increasing number of celebrities are jumping on the green bandwagon before taking a look into their own public records ...

Tina Brown's The Daily Beast is probably on a par with the Daily Mail, I wonder if they have the same 'source'?

Prince Charles, who is touring the world campaigning to save the rainforests, is selling products containing an ingredient blamed for wrecking them

Quote:
A spokesman for the company yesterday defended the practice, saying: "Currently less than five of our products – in a range of over 200 – contain palm oil.
Solution, stop selling the products that contain Palm Oil.

The Prince of Wales is not known for his love of technology - he refers to the radio as the wireless - but he will break new ground today when he becomes the first senior member of the Royal Family to utilise a social networking site in their official duties.

Prince Charles goes on MySpace for the first time - Telegraph

Princes and frogs are usually something of fairy tales, but there is nothing fictional or magical about the Royal family's latest campaign which features both figures.

Charles, and sons William and Harry, appear alongside an animated frog in a star-studded YouTube film for the Prince of Wales's latest environmental crusade

The frog is cute, but a real princess would have to have second thoughts about kissing it

What an interesting event. I like to see Prince Charles taking his passion for the environment further than words, I realise he has done alot to change our minds over the years.

Hesitation over tackling climate change could be catastrophic, Prince Charles has told global warming experts.

BBC NEWS | UK | Prince urges action over climate

Any strategy to fight climate change that does not prioritise the preservation of the world’s rainforests is doomed to fail, the Prince of Wales warned today

The Prince of Wales has warned the world is in the "last chance saloon" in its attempts to prevent catastrophic climate change, with most people failing to appreciate the urgency.
