^Yeah, MT was chosen for the peace prize, right? But she refused to accept it, I think?

Mother Teresa was awarded many honours during her lifetime, among them the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 which she accepted. She did decline the traditional laureates banquet.

That being true they obviously weren´t required to read Saramago´s books before giving him the Nobel Prize for literature.

Initially, my thought was "No" why would he? But politics always figure into prestigious awards and if a perons befriends or pleases the right people, an award is given.

I think he has done quite a lot to promote tolerance between the faiths, albeit in a low key way. Commednable as his efforts are, I think he does have plenty more to do in this area to truely make a difference, and consequently be recognised for it.

I think they have already kept one for him. He will get it when he ascends to the throne.

I don't think he deserves one , but I could see him getting one for his enviromental/conservation efforts. After all, didn't they give one to Al Gore for the same thing?

I think he has done more for world peace and understanding over both conservation/climate change and interfaith dialogue than say President Obama, who to my mind has done nothing for world peace but he has one.

When people like Obama, whom I otherwise respect, get one, what is the worth of this price?

It is unlikely the PoW will get the Nobel. In recent years, it has been nothing but a popularity contest amongst liberal nominees.

Obama got his for what he "might" do in the future. What schlock. Prince Charles is far more deserving than Barack Obama.

I agree. I do think as time goes on and Charles speaks out more and more for global warming and protecting the environment, it is bound to gain more attention and perhaps even spur some actions on a global scale. To me that is definitely worth a Nobel prize.

This is an interesting question.

I don't really think that Queen Elizabeth II would even think of accepting a Nobel Peace Prize in her own right as I think she would see herself with being monarch, the embodiment of her realm and her people.

The big question is what about the PoW? He is part of the royal family that, like his mother, represents all of the people of the realm. We all know he's outspoken and passionate about things that are dear to him. As he represents his people, would he even consider accepting such an award in his own right?

I think he could in good conscious. He probably would donate the money that comes with the Noble Prize.

The man is full of good intentions, but no heavyweight in these matters. As to him possibly donating his prize money; well why wouldn't he?

Don't underestimate just how important his support is - he is always going to be there while many of the politicians etc will be voted out or retire e.g. to the meeting last year we sent our PM but he is already out of office but Charles is still there to support the cause.

Royals should not under any circumstances accept such an honour.
They are there to hand out honours, not to accept them.

If the royal has actually done more than a politician you say that the royal shouldn't be recognised for their work?

Strange.

Of course royals get lots of honours for simply being royal but this is one that Charles would have earned because of the work that he has done.
