It's not like he made a public speech; it was supposed to be a private conversation.

I hope he won't be badgered into apologizing, because he said what so many are thinking!

Privately intended or not, it is a mess that now needs to be cleaned up. I'm sure he understands that, even as he knows he has a right to private opinions.

It's always good to see Charles driving his famous Aston Martin.

Video:
Prince Charles has made his first public appearance since allegedly comparing President Putin the Adolf Hitler. Arriving at the Church of St Peter and St Paul in Gloucestershire this evening, the future King refused to be drawn on his alleged comments, despite a dressing down from President Putin in Moscow this evening. The pair are due to meet each other next month, when they attend a commemorative service to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day landings in Normandy-

Come now, "alleged" comments. A little bit of Prince Philip coming through. Good idea to drive the Aston!

Prince Charles won't be king-in-waiting and job share with Queen so he can remain outspoken - Mirror Online
Quote:
Outspoken Prince Charles has ditched a “kingmaker” hired to help him take over more duties from the Queen, fearing such a job share would stop him voicing his views.

Charles, who this week compared *President Putin to Hitler, is no longer paying Sally Osman, who in January became head of a Buckingham Palace team set up to make him king in waiting.

But Charles, 65, has sidelined ex-BBC public relations chief Ms Osman, leaving the shadow king masterplan “in tatters” and causing “chaos” at the Palace.

Things like this are why many think C wont be able to keep his opinions to himself should be one day become king. Just because something is in one's head does not mean it needs to come out of ones mouth!

Is the Prince of Wales sounding off to outdo Prince William?

Hasn't Prince Charles always been outspoken? At least that's what the press have been telling us for the past forty years. So how has it got anything to do with William?

This just seems like the DM stirring the pot again.

Like many of us that care, the POW has had opinions. In general, they have been confined to private letters to people of influence.
The last public and audible goof I remember was when the boys were teens were skiing with him (at Klosters?) and there was a photo op and Charles said of one of the reporters something along the lines of "I can't stand that man."
Most of us did not disagree with him.

However, on this occasion, Charles compared a sitting Head of State to Adolph Hitler. Given that multiple members of Charles' family either married SS members or those whose father's are, he should hve steered clear.

Why would the marriages of Charles' relatives have anything to do with whether he is entitled to speak his mind about President Putin's actions?

Surely you are not suggesting Charles is somehow responsible for opinions held by relatives some 10 or so years before he was even born. Would you suggest Americans who are descended from slaveholders should not comment on slavery because of their family associations?

Whether Prince Charles should or should not have made the comment is a valid discussion to have but in the context of his position as Prince of Wales not because of some historical family opinions.

It's not as if C didnt know the nazi relatives would come up. Remember the kerfuffle when Harry wore the nazi uniform to a costume party?

Maybe its just me but I didn't see the remark in any way comparing Putin to the atrocities and horrors that the Nazi party and the SS engaged in. I just took it as comparing military/political strategy as being similar.

I do, however, think that when the name Adolf Hitler crops up, there's never has been nor will there ever will be any kind of positive image evoked.

Does that mean that Marianne Ferguson, a venerable Jewish survivor of the World War II, told lies? or perhaps, a Daily Mail reporter reported untruth?
The Russians should not have reacted to this hearsay drama though.

It's not just you. I, too, thought he was referring to the strategy being similar to what Hitler did in the Sudetenland, and I think Hillary Clinton thought that, too, and the experts are also referring to it in those terms: Expert likens possible Putin action on Ukraine to Hitler's 1938 move on Czechoslovakia | World | News | Daily Express
