Brilliant, he will probably be out in 1 month, but it should come as quite a shock to his system!
The PI got 6 months.

I never heard about David Rattray before. Was he really a good friend of the Prince or only somebody he knows slightly for many years?

Apparently, they were very good friends.

Prince Charles' shock as best friend is murdered


The Prince of Wales was shocked and stunned, after hearing that one of his best friends had been gunned down and killed by robbers at his home in the South African bush. Historian and hotelier David Rattray and his wife Nicky were attacked in their farmhouse when six men burst in demanding money.

Prince Charles was told about Mr Rattray's death as he commenced a two-day visit to New York and Philadelphia with the Duchess of Cornwall.
A Clarence House spokesman, who is accompanying the Royal couple, said: The Prince of Wales just heard about it and, needless to say, he is shocked and stunned.
"They knew each other very well and had met on a number of occasions in South Africa and the UK." Later, the Prince personally telephoned Mr Rattray's wife from America to offer his condolences.

CHARLES GETS GO AHEAD FOR MINI MANSION

Since Prince Charles bought the run-down 900-acre Harewood Park estate in Herefordshire seven years ago, speculation has been rife he is planning to build a first home for Prince William and his future wife in its grounds. Now the Prince has been given the go-ahead to start work on a six-bedroom mansion in the spring, which would no doubt suit rural-loving Wills and his girlfriend Kate Middleton down to the ground.

In the article milla Ca has posted, all the 'worthies' are saying IF he doesn't change when he becomes monarch..... Charles has already said he knows he will be unable to comment on anything when that happens.
Charles has never said he is not taking sides, just that he does not side with one political party or another!
As for getting a disgruntled ex employee to comment, well, she is hardly going to say anything favourable is she. Ex employees who have lost a claim for unfair dismissal tend to seize every opportunity to 'get at' the person who sacked them, for not being able to do her job!:rolleyes:
Then the author 'exposes' common and successful business practise, what do they want The Duchy to do, run at a massive loss, so they can point out that Charles has not appointed very good managers to look after it? Let the tenants live there free of charge... It's a business, not a charity! :wacko:

I´m glad that i can´t watch Channel 4. My blood pressure is far to high only when i read this article, but i coudn´t bear to hear more rubbish things from Simon Barnes on TV.
Channel 4 is the channel which has just allowed some maverick producer to produce a programme debunking global warming and calling it science; the same guy has been doing hatchet jobs on environmental issues for years and Channel 4 has been airing them, even after one of them was turned down by the BBC for being no better than propaganda. Since Prince Charles is a known environmentalist, no the wonder Channel 4 nabobs don't have much time for him.

Angry Charles attacks Channel 4 claims that he is unfit to be King

The Prince of Wales yesterday launched an unprecedented and pre-emptive assault on claims in a TV documentary suggesting he is 'unfit to rule' as his aides stressed he would carry out his role as King in a completely different way to his role as heir-in-waiting.

Honestly, such a long, detailed refutation only serves to show that the Prince is taking this stuff seriously. A comment along the lines that the allegations are too ridiculous to take seriously might have been a better response.

Charles

I actually watched the programme and was not surprised at the way 'facts' were distorted or omitted by the reporter. The calibre of the people against Charles was laughable, Elaine Day, sacked for not doing her job properly as I recall, ex(?) MP Hattersley, 2 declared republican MP's. A professor who it seems decided against telling anyone in authority of his disagreement with what everyone else in the report had said, but contacted a paper and was rebuked for his breach of a confidentiality agreement. Even the way they presented the replies from Clarence House to their questions was a hatchet job on Charles.
:bang: :bang:

I agree with his views on architecture, agriculture, with his business sense, that complimentary medicines can save the NHS money and be used together for the benefit of the patient. Even the 'story' of the family that gave up a house on the Scilly Isles that was then decorated and let for holidays was not the full story.

Britain's Prince Charles is building a love nest to enjoy with his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, in the remote Scottish Highlands.

Remote, are they joking? It is a short drive to Aberdeen airport! :rolleyes: Oh and it's not in the Highlands!
