Prince of Wales shows the way to lead wool back into the fashion fold - Times Online

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the sweater along comes a man with a plan, in doublebreasted wool.

The Prince of Wales is attempting to rebrand a material favoured by the nation’s grandmothers — and Val Doonican — as a fashionable and eco-friendly fabric that consumers will choose for clothes and home furnishings. The scheme, to be launched tomorrow, aims to help sheep farmers by boosting the price of wool worldwide. In Britain the average price for a kilogram in 1997 was 93p. Last year it fell to 66p.

Hopefully this will also be a chance for Charles to do something for the Commonwealth countries wool exporters, as stated in the article.

I doubt very much that the prince's decision not to go skiing this year has anything to do with Mr. Brown. It's just the Tory Telegraph having a go at him via anonymous 'sources'. Besides which if it was so why hasn't Brown laid down the law over Prince Harry's frequent expensive holidays in sunny Mauritius and South Africa - much more likely to cause annoyance amongst the British public than holidaying in freezing Switzerland! Prince Charles hasn't been to Klosters since about 2007 and then he went on his own & I don't think Camilla has ever been. If you don't ski (and Camilla doesn't) & you're not interested in the apres-ski partying then a skiing holiday is rather boring! As a couple they obviously seem to prefer spending January in Scotland.

Perhaps he simply doesn't feel like going skiing this year and the Telegraph is just trying to make a big deal out of it.

Today, Prince Charles met with the President of Afghanistan Hamid
Karzai again (yesterday there was a reception - see the family's
current events thread):

Prince Charles greets Hamid Karzai at Clarence House, London
Thursday Jan. 28, 2010. World leaders meeting in London on
Thursday agreed on a timetable for the handover of security
duties in Afghan provinces starting in late 2010 or early 2011.

And Charles met with pupils at Surrey Square Junior School in London,
Thursday, Jan. 28, 2010, as he led a group of business leaders on
a Seeing is Believing visit as President of Business in the Community.

As a reminder: "Seeing is Believing" is a program, in which business
leaders are invited to visit different parts of the country and spend
time in inner city schools, homeless hostels, prisons, or tough housing
estates to see where the problems are and what can be done against
