I don't know for how long it's been planned, but it looks like it popped up on the calendar today. Cepe was the first to report the news, now RRs are getting wind and reporting.

If it's a recent addition, the timing is certainly interesting. In that case, the messaging doesn't seem in the least ambiguous: Business as usual, the work of the BRF is in good hands, time to get back to what's important....and so on.

I love seeing Charles and William together, even better when Camilla and Kate are there. I wonder why try so rarely do joint engagements.....

Thanks for posting that video! I'm all for more of these for doing joint engagements, but I admit it's mostly for the personal interactions....

At one point the Duke of Cambridge, 37, joked that it was bad enough when there were just two of them. “When there’s four of us it’s a nightmare,” he said.
Charles, 71, chimed in, “There’s too many of us!”

It’s interesting how the media can portray someone in a certain way and how it sticks. Charles still hasn’t completely shaken off the cold and sour image he had, or was given by the press, during his marriage and divorce. Which is odd because Charles seems quite witty to me, with the occasional goofy Dad joke thrown in.

I have to respectfully disagree with you on this. Ever since Charles married his Camilla, his public and private life seem to have fallen into place and its rare these days to not see Charles smiling and laughing and cracking a joke here or there. Life is definitely agreeing with him.

I think he also has a good rapport with both of his sons and their wives and of course, the grandchildren. He's even turned part of his Highgrove gardens into a veritable child's dream playground for them to enjoy.

I agree... The media seems to actually really enjoy Charles and Camilla, surprisingly (to them). He’s got a sense of humor which he didn’t ever seem to show - naturally- until he was truly happy and she’s just a fantastic lady.

I would also add that his relationship with his parents is much improved from decades ago. There’s nothing I love more (*)than to see Charles and his mum laughing hysterically at the Highland Games, lol. Whatever wounds were between them (HM and Philip) have been repaired, and that’s significant. So, his being just overall much happier has also made him more relaxed, able to be himself, and that’s what the media is seeing.

*Except seeing Charles with his sons and grandchildren

This could probably go in the “Relationships” thread, but we’ve been discussing William and a Charles here and the article does focus on this last engagement, so....

The headline is a bit dramatic as I’m sure the BRF will be fine, but I understand the point. It’s been a rough patch for the Royals, and I think this was a lovely moment for them. It’s wonderful to see Charles and William bonding more closely as Charles mentors him. Some people are worried about the monarchy after the Queen passes away, but as her father taught her the ropes, so she has taught her son, and he her grandson.


Quote:
Much has been made of the relaxed body language between the duke and his father on the engagement. Royal insiders are talking of further joint engagements and collaborations in the pipeline as the monarchy, down three senior members, adapts to a more streamlined working model.

.....


One sensed a spontaneous warmth between them,” she told Vanity Fair. “Apart from the very visible bond, there’s plenty of evidence indicating a closer alignment between Charles and William. During the crisis over Prince Andrew’s scandals last year, both the Queen and Prince Charles ensured that Prince William played an active role in the decision-making. That cooperation was also apparent in hammering out an agreement with Harry and Meghan to leave their official duties with the royal family.”
