Is there a media frenzy going on in Great Britain concerning Prince Charles and the published pages of his diary? Good Morning America raised the question, "Should the prince or the royal family have any privacy?" How ridiculous! A former butler made copies of Prince Charles' personal diary and sold them to a newspaper. The thoughts were personal and no crime was committed by the prince. There is no difference if you and I kept a journal but we aren't famous nor heir to the British throne either. Has anyone heard about this?

Yes I have heard it on the news here in Australia for a couple of weeks now I think. Its a shame when you can't trust your own staff, and the person who did it was meant to be his frined apparently.

Bolland is basically extremely bitter because he got the chop. Surely he signed a confidentiality agreement - can't they act on that?

The whole case is about confidentiality and it is pretty naive to trust employees completely.

Am not surprised or shocked by his relevation, sounds pretty much like the truth, most jobs are not for life anymore so I do not think he is too bitter

I think that because he worked so hard to raise Camilla's profile, he feels as if he's been shipped out just when he'd succeded in doing what was thought to be impossible. But his confidentiality agreement should state that he musn't reveal anything that he saw or heard in the course of his work.

We have two that should be in the Tower.

Sara Goodall, secretary to Mark Bolland who SOLD the diaries to The Mail and who has collaborated on a book based on the diaries.
She was sacked but, Prince Charles has been kind enough not to damage her employment prospects still further, by releasing the real reasons for her dismissal. She of course blames Camilla.

Mark Bolland, who in my opinion misread everything Prince Charles wanted to do and say and has chosen this dispicable route to 'get even'. He jumped before he was finally pushed. Goodall was one of his secretaries, mmmm, makes you wonder.

I think the Royal Family needs to look more carefully in who they hire. Between Paul Burrell and a couple of Charles' former employees, the word 'sleazy' seems somehow inadequate to describe them.

It's very difficult nowadays to demote or even fire someone, you have to have good, provable reasons, we are not getting on or I think she is stealing from me are not good enough.
When you are hiring, a lot of the hopefuls will say anything to get the job. It is almost impossible to give a bad reference. The best bet is just to say you would rather not give one.

Charles' diary lays thoughts bare


The diary which sparked Prince Charles' court fight with the Mail on Sunday has been released by his lawyers amid claims it was not a "private" journal.

Okay, I'm lost and I would apprieciate if you guys could help me out. Weren't the journals or diaries (copies) taken without the consent of the prince? Isn't that stealing? This newspaper came by these articles via dishonest means and they shouldn't be liable? These papers weren't found on the street but taken from a residence. People should be arrested for this!

Charles sent a few copies to close friends. Mark Bolland had a copy and gave it to the press.

The secretary was Sara Goodall, Mark Bollands crime was to make a statement on behalf of The Mail on Sunday.

Ex-royal secretary suspected of leaking diaries
(Filed: 14/01/2006)

A former secretary who was sacked from the Prince of Wales's office was named in the High Court yesterday as the person suspected of passing copies of private journals written by the Prince to a Sunday tabloid newspaper.

A lot of people do not see Charles as a dissident, they see him as voicing their own concerns.

A rebellious teenage is totally different from someone who is not in agreement with the way things are being handled.:)

Does anyone know why Charlest sent copies of his private diaries to others? Shouldn't these things be kept private, and not shared with others? Please enlighten me, I don't really understand that.

Well, I've known a few people who write accounts of a visit etc and circulate them to friends. Of course, Charles knows who he can trust. But Bolland got a copy and did the dirty.

Bolland didn't receive a copy. As long as I understood, he made copies of the diary, without the permission or the knowledge of the Prince. A very dishonest thing to do .
We all have our private opinions and among them those, we woudln't like to be voiced all over the country.
