I too think Charles has made more significant contributions to the world than most other royals.

I mean think about it. Losing your mother is huge right of passage in everyone's lives, add that job on top of it.

What a nice story for a change. Bet that made the day of everyone in the pub.
One of the reasons I like Prince Charles so much - he is a good sport.

We mentioned on a variety of threads, most notably in recent days the Beatrice and Eugenie trip, about Prince Charles wanting a slim line monarchy. And I've asked where is the evidence.

I found the following today on the Royal Reporter Twitter account of Richard Palmer of the Express.

Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter
@jennyg2k The idea of Charles wanting a slimmer monarchy seems based on a 1990s briefing by one spin doctor trying to big him up at the time

2:18 AM - 22 Jan 13 · Details

Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter@jennyg2k It may be true Charles wants a slimmed down monarchy but I know of nobody inside the Royal Household who is briefing that.


The evidence is rather thin IMO

Not sure if this is the right thread - mods please move if necessary.

The Prince of Wales has received Vietnamese General Secretary of the Communist Party Nguyen Phu Trong at Clarence House today, January 23, 2013. Trong arrived in London on January 22 for a two-day visit that marked 40 years of diplomatic relations between the UK and Vietnam.

Charles is keeping an eye on the construction work given he is the owner of the famous Oval Cricket Ground, or rather, the Duchy of Cornwall is.

He certainly seemed to enjoy himself. I'm sure he had a good night's sleep last night when a certain young man stepped back on British soil for the first time in over 5 months.

Here is new news - a taste test of Duchy Origianls products - and I think the Daily Mail did a far better job than the usual hatchet piece: Charles' scones and Stilton cost a King's ransom - so are they really worth it? We put them to the taste test | Mail Online

Oh man, that article made my mouth water. I wish Duchy Originals products were available in America, but I doubt they'd be able to up their distribution that much and maintain the same quality.

I'm so impressed with what Prince Charles pulled off there. So many people thought he was mad to even try, and it's just been an enormously successful venture that's done so much good.

He's a very under appreciated man.

Just remember, Charles has people working for him that turn out these products. They deserve the credit for the excellent taste. He deserves the credit for giving them the freedom to excel. He seems a good boss at this end of his business.
