The Prince of Wales toured 'Highbury Gardens' (a residential development completed with the help of The Prince's Foundation for Building Community) and met residents at Highbury Gardens, Islington, London today, February 12, 2013.

The pics with the girl are cute and funny, especially number 2 and 5:

I love the sight of His Highness in a little girl's room. He seems so at ease, and comfortable. The girl seems quite happy to show off her room as well. Absolutely delightful.

He broke the knob on that bed! Too funny. That little girl is quite plucky. I love Pic 7, where the two of them are having such a thoughtful conversation, both equally serious.

People on ths forum have blasted me for saying this before - but Charles is way less serious now than in the past. He has grown. There are photos from the Di years where he is staring daggers at the object of the press' devotion. He was not happy and it showed.
These days he has come into his own; he appears to enjoy the company of others. He is not looking over his shoulder in any way. I like seeing his happiness.

GREAT ESTATES SCOTLAND
Dumfries

Tour the interior of the fabulous Dumfries House, an architectural gem that boasts one of the largest collections of Chippendale furniture in the world. This once-neglected mansion was dramatically brought back to life and saved for the nation by HRH The Prince of Wales-

I watched this Dman and I found it interesting. The coverage inside was spectacular. The history was fascinating.

I also thought the Prince of Wales was a bit whaffle-y. His point of view seemed to be "do something and invite people in and something good will happen." When I listened to him, I thought it all a bit vague. I'm American and we are all about results - setting a goal and hitting the goal. It is our weakness.

Has unemployment in the area declined in a statistically measurable way? Are tax revenues up? Has crime decreased? Is there any reporting on this sort of thing?

And I will admit, that I cringe every time the POW uses "literally." Yes, the trucks stopped LITERALLY in the middle of the night and turned around. But that's just because a truck cannot stop metaphorically and turn around in the middle of the night.
