Earlier they introduced Camilla as "Her Grace, the Duchess of Cornwall"

It was nice of you to let me know that my comments amused you. Subjects of the Commonwealth realms have amusing views/perceptions as well.

The negotiations ongoing with Putin and the west dont need C stirring the pot. It will be interesting what happens when C meets Putin again next month.

Already mentioned that they are not expected to meet (source UK media)

EDIT: The articles are quoting the DM - the BBC are saying otherwise. But frankly its hardly earth shattering stuff.

You dont think that it's a problem when he equates a sitting head of state with Adolph Hitler? Really?

I think he could be cautious. He's old enough to know better. In one sense it is more important for the Prince of Wales to keep his personal views about other countries' leaders to himself. I recall another Prince of Wales in the 1930s expressed his regard for the Nazis. If the situation in Germany had subsequently taken a different course those remarks might not have even made a footnote in the history books, but Charles should be mindful of that example.

What Putin is doing right now is similar to what Hitler was doing back then before the war. I have no problem with that.

The Prince of Wales said nothing but the truth. He showed he understand what's happening in the world and it's possible consequences. I think that's a good quality in a Head of State.

Putin is a crazy man with no limits. He should be stopped now, before he really become like Hitler.

I have no problem with him thinking that, and I share that view, but it is controversial, and I think Prince Charles, the future King of England, should not express his opinions about such matters within the hearing of a journalist.

In an elected Head of State, maybe, but not in someone who is really only a figurehead and whose only qualification for his position is the fact he was born to the right parents.

Because, when a guest, it never hurts to show good manners. It's the keep calm and carry on mentality.

And today - Rebecca psost about The Prince of Wales being chuffed. Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail 1h Prince Charles looked chuffed to bits with the Mountie hat he was given in Canada today...#royaltour #princecharles pic.twitter.com/mSOviEtDjV

I don't think she will ease herself out of yesterday's tweet all that easily.

Yes, he did say something to that effect. I'm trying to find an exact quote.

Any pics from today? I'm really quite busy here and didn't get a chance to check. I can't muster up any sympathy for Putin,the man is an idiot and the whole world knows it.

I applaud his comment. Time to put dictators in the right perspective.

I think it is time to move on and leave political opinions and use a bit more diplomacy when discussing the various differences in heads of state, princes or regimes and governments. It really gets us no where real fast and makes our moderators grumble under their breath as they clean up the thread.

I cannot see how my words can [remotely] be interpreted as critical of all Canadian comedians !

Since you obviously have good ones, why on Earth was this rubbish one chosen ? As i said it is extremely disrespectful to embarrass a guest !
