Prince Charles has also made a donation to the Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund, Clarence House said. He previously visited Carlisle in 2005 after the city was hit by severe floodin, meeting with householders, emergency services and council leaders and offering his support.

Meanwhile, Conservative leader David Cameron arrived at Carlisle railway station just before noon today (Tuesday) on a fact-finding visit to the area.
He was due to travel to Cockermouth Fire Station to meet emergency service workers and people affected by the floods.

visit in order to see how the Community is coping after the

after the floods cut off parts of the town.

I love the pictures of Prince Charles during investitures at Buckingham Palace, especially the way the reciepients look up at him. He is really looking every bit a "king" these days, IMO.

PRINCE Charles praised the quality of Ulverston Victoria High School’s (UVHS) English curriculum during a special reception at Clarence House.
Pupils and teachers were invited to the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s personal residence in London to celebrate the school’s Programme Mark accreditation, awarded by the Prince’s Teaching Institute.

Prince Charles taps police for loan - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Britain's Prince Charles borrowed 3,000 pounds ($5,380) from his protection officers after the royal found himself short of cash and needing to fork out for "travel expenses", reports say.

The heir to the throne repaid the loan to his officers after they stumped up the money, thought to be for flights abroad.

This sounds like extremely poor organisation to me. Can't the minders simply be issued with a credit card on an account in Charles' name to pay for things for him if he can't be trained to carry one himself? It seems absurd for there to have to be an accounting between the departments.

I read on another forum that the story about the prince borrowing the money is incorrect, so I looked on the Prince of Wales website, and it says the story about him borrowing the money is incorrect.

When he becomes King isn't he supposed to advise and warn the Government of the day? I know he is not the monarch yet, but I don't see why there should be a problem. As a Privy Counsellor as well, doesn't he have a right to talk to members of one of it's (technical) subcommittees?

ALL citizens have the right to write to, or otherwise contact, a MP but some would like to suggest that the Prince of Wales is doing something illegal when he is doing something totally within the rights of any citizen.

There is a piece in the Telegraph today saying the same thing, adding as a member of the privy council it is part of the job!

Why we must listen to Prince Charles - Telegraph

Prince Charles's track record for prescience is good, he has valuable things to say and he is often more in tune with the public than ministers are.

Excerpts:

What a to-do there has been about the Prince of Wales's letters. According to reports in a Left-wing newspaper this week, he has been meddling in Government policy, expressing strong opinions on subjects from culture to pensions. Defra, the Department for International Development, the Foreign Office and the Treasury are among the honoured recipients of his missives. And frankly I am aghast. There were eight letters in all. My reaction is: what? Only eight?

His views have been formed by a lifetime spent travelling the world, founding charities, consulting with the most eminent men and women in their fields, and meeting ordinary people. It's a range of experience far beyond that of any politician – and his opinions, so often derided when first made public, have a habit of turning into received wisdom with time. In this lies the Prince's value. He has done things. Sometimes his experience lies in areas that are poorly represented in politics. The House of Commons has become a largely urban institution, whose failure to understand the countryside has been particularly manifest under Labour. It would be surprising, however, if the Prince of Wales did not know about the countryside because he owns quite a bit of it.

Listening to Radio 4's PM programme in the car on Thursday afternoon, I nearly drove into a milk lorry when Lord Haskins chirped up, criticising the Prince's access to ministers. The millionaire former chairman of the agribusiness Northern Foods, Haskins has access aplenty. He was made a peer; he writes Government reports. Don't tell me that chief executives of multinational companies can't speak to ministers when they want to. It would be rum if they couldn't.

The Prince of Wales deserves the same privilege. Which is healthier: the Prince, as privy councillor, getting out his fountain pen, or a billionaire lushing up Peter Mandelson on a yacht? I know which I'd choose.

Isn't great to read a positive article about the Prince of Wales for a change.
