Probably ministers of trade?

Andrew has recently set up a charitable foundation to promote craft and trade qualifications as an alternative to university. Fact finding with ministers seems appropriate, especially if he wanted to avoid duplication of government funded work.

Tempest in a teapot as usual.
The POW obviously cares about the life of his future subjects. I presume it's the least he can do as the future head of state....
In some circles this man just can't do anything rignt. Stop the meetings and he will be labeled "cold" and "out of touch", maintain them and he will be "polical".

Slow news period when it comes the royals. Meetings with ministers by any member of the BRF get recorded in the CC so it has not been a great secret that these meetings are happening. It comes with the territory. The same with the minor uproar over the story about Charles approving legislation that impacts the Duchy of Cornwall...it is part of his rights as Duke, it was never a secret, he has never refused approval, and his approval is always announced in Parliament by a Minister so again it has never been a secret. I really do think reporters who claim to report on political matters really should have a better education on our history and how our government functions.

I like that Charles has a very active interest in certain issues. I think he will be a good and very active King someday. I don't think he will get political though.

It is your laws, meaning Britain. What he does or doesn't is up to your government.

The fact that The Queen has the same rights with regard to the Duchy of Lancaster is always overlooked in regard to the approving of legislation that impacts the Duchy of Lancaster.

It is the summer in the UK, the royals and politicians are effectively on holidays, so the media has to find non-stories to make into stories to fill the pages of their rags and to justify the salaries of their reporters.
