A sewage tunnel? Must have been so boring, and more than a little gross... Not the way I'd choose to spend my day...

Following the birth of Prince George, the Prince of Wales described the experience of becoming a first-time grandfather as ‘a unique moment in anyone’s life’.

And now, a never-before-seen photograph of the royal and his one-year-old grandson proves just how proud he is of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's son.

The framed image of the 66-year-old and Prince George took pride of place on a table in the background of a newly released video clip, which the Prince released to support the world's biggest environmental event, Earth Hour.

The Prince of Wales has visited Tetbury Hospital to open the newly upgraded X-ray unit. It's the first unit upgrade in over a decade and more than £100,000 has been spent improving the facilities-

Looks like Charles had injured his thumb that resulted in his nail hanging off, or something along those lines.

Thank you Victoria for sharing something with us that hits our emotions beyond words. Even after having to take a pause and go get something to drink and ponder on what I've read, I'm still choked up emotionally by the incredible life of Haley and how much she accomplished and all the people she's affected in just a short life of 17 years.

Its my opinion that the letter that Charles wrote to the family is one of his "spider" letters (definitely see the scrawl and the underlining) that has a bonus being released to the public after serving its purpose first honoring Haley. The letter came from Charles the man. No HRH anywhere, no Prince of Wales feathers on the stationery and simply signed Charles. Words reveal who a person is and one can definitely see a man with a strong, caring heart whose sentiments were not only sincere but very heartfelt.

Thank you again Victoria. This will stay with quite a while.

Same here Osipi- had the same reaction. And I am one whose benefited from the bonus. I have a hard time seeing Charles as anything but the grand and eccentric Prince of Wales whose interested in things I find dull. I just could not relate. But now I saw the human being- and I liked what I saw. The next time I go to make a quick judgement about Charles I will think of Hailey. The letter and the pic of the 2 of them had me in tears. And I also now acknowledge that William and Harry get their compassion from both parents not just one. While I still can't say I'm an all out Charles fan- by no means do I wish him harm though- I can say this helps me see the man differently.

I remember seeing Hailey on TV years ago, and what's stuck with me- is she was talking to her hospice nurse about " going to heaven, and God lives in a pink castle, and all my friends and I will live with him, and not go to hospital anymore." I mix all these documentaries up , but 99% sure it was Hailey. And now she's there. So I'm a mix of sad and happy.
Well done Charles! Thanks Victoria!

I have a question to ask of Charles and Camilla watchers. Is it usual for Charles and his wife to spend time at Birkhall in late April? Did Charles attend his mother's 89th birthday celebrations at Windsor, quiet as they were, nevertheless? (I know Charles is going to the 100th Galipolli commemorations, so will be in Turkey, but that's a one-off, really.)Is Charles usually in Scotland at this time of year? It seems strange, with Kate's baby due.

They usually spend Easter in Scotland. I can't imagine HM's 89th birthday was a particularly overt affair. Plus the babies going to be born whether Charles is there are not. All he has to do is hop on a plane or train, or even wait until she's out of hospital if necessary.

Thanks for the answer, Lumutqueen. I expect you're right. Charles will be making his way down to London (or Norfolk) soon enough!

I remember that in 2011 there were even complaints a couple of days before the wedding because Charles was still in Scotland on the Tuesday before Friday's wedding but he saw no reason to be anywhere else until needed.

I think Charles loves Scotland and Birkhall and when his time comes it may be a bit of a wrench to move to Balmoral.

Excuse me for a moment here and forgive what's about to appear....

WHAT!?! Our Regiment was honoured in such an incredible manner by the City and I MISSED IT!?! Arrrrrggghhhh!!!

Okay...I *think* I've got that out of my system. My Uncle served in The Irish Regiment of Canada, and while he missed WW II by a few years, he served in West Germany and a few other Countries as a Peacekeeper. He wore his Irish Regiment dress jacket, green w/the Regimental Insignia embroidered on the front pocket, to my Aunt's/his wife's Funeral a couple of weeks ago. When asked why he was wearing it instead of what you'd usually expect, Uncle Rodney explained if it wasn't for his time in the Regiment he never would have gone to Alberta for a time and he never would have met Aunt Robbie.

So my Family has some special links w/our Hometown Regiment and place in our hearts too. I am stunned to learn it didn't have an Honourary Colonel-in-Chief until now though. I just always assumed it did. It is too bad in a way William wasn't named the HCiC of the Canadian "branch" of The Irish Regiment, just because as he is the HCiC of The Irish Regiment in the UK, it would have been a nice form of...symmetry IMO. I have no problem w/Charles being named the HCiC however and it truly is a great honour for the Regiment to have HRH The Prince of Wales as their Honourary Colonel in Chief.

Now...I wonder when the new HCiC will visit the Regiment?

I think it's nice news, but I think it would've been even better if William or Catherine took on the role. It would be nice to hand down such roles to the younger royals. Just pointing out that Charles already have of long list of regimental roles, let someone else take on the role.
