That is a very beautiful (and appropriate) little piece for someone who appreciates frogs (and all things nature) as much as His Highness does. Faberge never fails to make masterpieces out of things that others would find ordinary, or unpleasant (and I know plenty of people who dislike frogs [no, I'm not one of them]).

I love that Faberge frog. Just think how fitting it would be for him to use it as his royal seal. We had Richard the Lionheart, Edward the Confessor and William the Conqueror and now perhaps Charles the Green.
I love your idea of His Highness having a stuffed, singing Kermit the Frog . The song definitely fits too. Hmmmm...wonder if anyone close to His Highness ever thought of giving that to him as a Birthday or Christmas present. I bet he would appreciate it and find it very amusing.

Given that the family tend to go for the silly type of gifts I can see one or both of his sons giving him something like that - or even his sister or baby brother (strange but I can't see it coming from Andrew - and yet I can remember in the 70s reading that Andrew was the joker of the family and would be likely to put a whoopee cushion on Charles coronation throne)

I could also see one of his neices giving him something like that - but again not Peter.

Interesting how I perceive the royals and their sense of humour.

The other person I could see him giving him something like that is Philip actually considering their different approaches to aspects of the environment and yet both are environmentalists - Philip not as opposed to GM foods as Charles.

Now when we hear that he has been given one for Christmas this year we can take the credit for giving them the idea.

Interesting observations. I don't know much about Andrew, but I can definitely see Prince Philip giving his son something like a singing Kermit . It would be precious if the gift came from one of the kids, like Lady Louise perhaps. It would be such a sweet little gesture. I guess now we'll have to wait until Christmas and keep an eye out for an article that talks about possible funny gifts that were exchanged at Sandringham .

Fortnam&Mason are developing the Highgrove range, all profits go to charity.

I like this:

Sometimes the Prince initiates the development of a new Highgrove product himself. ‘The Prince of Wales has a small estate in Transylvania and we are making an apricot preserve from there, and also the most wonderful early summer honey that is about to be launched,’ Miller says. It is the first time that a Highgrove product has been made outside Britain. Local ingredients, as far as possible from the Prince’s Romanian estate in the Transylvanian village Viscri, will be taken for production to the manufacturing unit of the Transylvanian Food Company, which the Prince visited in June and approved. Next to the Orchard Room at Highgrove, the Prince is cultivating a Transylvanian wildflower meadow, rather like the landscape of Saschiz, south-east Transylvania, a Unesco World Heritage site to which he makes regular visits.

Its rare these days to see pictures of Charles without a laugh or a smile. He has definitely come into his own these days.

She pays more attention to her hairstyle these days. Before her marriage, her hair was so shabby and was just a hot mess but now I think she is a nice looking lady. You know, she tries.
