After thousands of articles showing Charles in bad light (as a philanderer, meddling prince, man-child, aloof, bad father, bad husband ...) is it possible to enjoy a nice article about him without screaming PR campaign ?
This man can't win. We know it, and he certainely knows it.

As we've already been told off this is something not to be discussed in this thread.
It's known that Princess Victoria was one of the first to know about Prince Albert's engagement as he brought Charlene with him to the wedding. The engagement announcement was deliberately postponed not to steal Victoria's thunder. I think that's a different case from Kate whose engagement was announced at least 4 months after Victoria's wedding.

On a different note, William and Kate were invited to the princely wedding but they couldn't attend because of their Canadian tour.

I don't see how a documentary to celebrate his 70th birthday is going to mention his faults and weaker side...

I agree. Plus: the documentary was more about him as The Prince of Wales, than about the life of Charles Mountbatten-Windsor. It was just the chosen approach by the makers. It became clear that Charles has totally redefined the role of the Prince of Wales, to such acclaim that he will be a hard act to follow for his son.

I just had time to watch the documentary and he comes across as a lovely man. As any human being, he has his flaws, but undoubtedly any conversation with him is absolutely worth having and very interesting.

IMO, at best you will see the following:

1) A picture of the core family at the party
2) Pictures of arrivals

Sofia has no event on the agenda, strange if she is not going. I am sure the invitation has been extended to her, with the Kings being in Peru, since another of the retired Queens is going (Beatrix).

I'm sure Sophia must be going and some of the Greek royal family. Perhaps they've just not made an announcement.

I suspect they all are: Andrew, the Wessex', Anne & Tim, Gloucesters, all the Kents of that generation, Margaret 's children and their spouses. ..

I have this crazy thought that Charles knows this will be his last major birthday where he is not HM. And that, knowing that, he chose congeniality over statesmanship for his party. And I am OK with it.

And I think it is black tie - so no tiaras.
