As Prince Charles turns 60, we get an exclusive insight into the man who would be king (if he lives long enough) | Mail Online
Quote:
Life is short. There's so much more to do, says Prince Charles as he enters his sixth decade. BBC One has spend a year with him making a remarkable film, and the Mail's Robert Hardman was there.
Wandering around the walled garden of his Gloucestershire home in a battered old gardening jacket, rattling off the names of favourite plants, Prince Charles rummages around in a pocket and plucks out yet another 'to do' list. ...
The article has got nice photos of Prince Charles.

Thank you Al bina, great article. It's a shame he was nearly sixty before I realised that he is a great man

A KENTON school choir held one of their last rehearsals before performing at Prince Charles' birthday yesterday.
Pupils from Preistmead Middle School, in Hartford Avenue, will join a choir of 200 to perform for the Prince of Wales' 60th birthday at the Royal Opera House, next Friday November 14.

November 10

A Daily Telegraph/YouGov poll commissioned to mark the 60th birthday of the Prince this Friday showed that only 17 per cent wanted the Duchess to become Queen. When the same question was asked on her 60th birthday in July 2007, the number in favour was 28 per cent.

Although I am a member of YouGov select and frequently take part in a variety of their polls, the way the question was worded made answering quite difficult. Do I answer that my opinion has changed (when it hasn't, I always supported her becoming Queen consort) or do I say my opinion has not changed, which is then read as not supporting her in the past or now. There is also, as you say, no mention of how many were invited to take part and how many actually did.

This poll result doesn't seem to fit with her current popularity. Has somebody been playing with the numbers

Plans for Italian conductor Riccardo Muti to perform at Buckingham Palace on Thursday for Prince Charles' 60th birthday party have collapsed. Muti had been expected to conduct the London-based Philharmonia Orchestra at the gala party hosted by Queen Elizabeth II the day before Charles, her eldest son, turns 60.

I read the new conductor will be Christopher Warren-Green - not a bad choice, i think. I remember ´his´ nice music at the wedding of Charles & Camilla.

I have to say I thouroughly enjoyed the programme on the Prince of Wales. What a lovely man. I have to say i was surprised by how down to earth he was. I especially liked the comments about Princes William and Harry, his father reading him stories as a child etc.

However my favourite part was when he talked about the Queen Mother. Truly very touching

The Queen has given a rare tribute to Prince Charles and spoken of her enormous pride in her son as he nears his 60th birthday.She heaped praise on her oldest son - who will celebrate his birthday this Friday - noting his 'vision and conviction' at a reception for his charity, the Prince's Trust.

Fantastic programme, it reminded me of just how proud I am that he will be our future King!

IMHO, this is the best birthday present that Prince Charles could have received from his parents. Well done.

I agree and I wish many more people had been able to see it. Charles is so much about quality and enthusiasm and it's a shame that in public he is often presented as the misjudged maverick or wacko who only speaks to his plants, instead of recognizing his fantastic achievements over the last decades. I was impressed by his statement towards the end where he said that if people think that he's a useless idiot he prefers to be seen as such for doing things and not for not doing things. I am sure he will be a great King and bring the monarchy forward, at least if he can keep up with speed during the years to come, and even if it's not meant to be (in case HM will top her mother's age) his legacy as PoW will be remarkable and hard to beat.

Charles is a good mixture of his parents, I can see characteristics or gestures of both of them (he speaks a lot like his father). When looking at Camilla I thought that she is really trying hard and doing well despite not "being born" for her job. It must be difficult for her to adapt to the spotlight at her age and with her discreet attitude. The only worry I have is the generation after Charles. When looking at the countless organisations or good causes that are lead by The Duke or Charles alone, who will be able to step in when the Duke is dead and Charles is King? I am always shuddering when people say "Charles should step down and pass on to William" - a nightmare, those people simply don't know what they are talking about. William & Harry will have to step up not only several but many gears if they ever aim to fill their father's or grandfather's boots - I don't see either much intelligence or dedication for service in them. But hope dies last.

I am not so sure about that but in yesterday's programme it became obvious that Charles doesn't watch the GMTV breakfast show (he had no clue what the hosts of his Prince's Trust awards show, Jenni Falconer & Ben Shepard are famous for), he apologized that is was "too early" for him, and lateron he confessed having watched neither "Shrek 1" nor "Shrek 2". Time for some grandkids to bring him up to date I'd say!
