Not that I would suggest doing such a thing, but it's probably available to download somewhere, or watch on YouTube.

Commonwealth duty in Sri Lanka a big moment for Prince Charles:

When Prince Charles goes to the Commonwealth meeting in Sri Lanka (instead of the Queen) it's expected he'll be joined by Camilla.

Iluvbertie 05-07-2013 07:06 PM

As he has already met most, if not all of them personally, his profile hardly needs raising.

As for raising his profile on the world stage - already quite high - has been since his birth as 2nd in line to the British throne.

CHOGM doesn't mean a great deal to most people - even in the Commonwealth. It might make a segment on our news for instance but that isn't a given (and Australia can't confirm who will be attending, if anyone, until after 14th September as we have a Federal election that day and it could be decided on that day or take a week or so like last time).

I'm not sure Bosco but I don't think the Queen (or Prince Charles) chairs CHOGM, I think it is simply opened by her. I would imagine the Secretary General actually chairs the meeting.

Bertie does have a lot of knowledge, as do many of the contributors to the board but don't sell yourself short. Simply because someone doesn't have as many posts under their belt doesn't mean they don't have a vast amount of knowledge to contribute to the discussions.

Does anyone know which sash the POW is wearing today at the Opening of Parliament? The chain is the Order of the Garter, I think and the matching sash should be blue. In the pics I have seen, the sash looks forest or bottle green and worn on the left shoulder. Thanks. :flowers:

Now I know that TSOOP cannot be the most thrilling thing, but one wonders if it took place when the POW usually has a nap.Did they give him a sleeping pill or something? Is he ill?

If I have to listen to something that is detailed and intense, such as this speech, I find that if I close my eyes I can concentrate on what is being said far easier than if there are all sorts of distractions around me.

I'd imagine that closing one's eyes might help one concentrate a little better, and I bet there are a lot of things to distract oneself with (visually that is) during this particular event. I know that if I had no vision issues and were present at the ceremony, I'd be looking all over the place, and not paying attention to a word that was being said. Perhaps His Highness can be easily distracted?

Makes sense.When I was distracted in school, my aide would take me for a walk, or let me read a book, but Charles cannot get up and leave, or pull out a book can he? I bet that's exactly what he was doing.

I do that with my kids too. I bet His Highness may wish at moments like this that he were indeed in a situation where leaving for a little bit to get one's thoughts together was allowed and acceptable.

Know I would!

AdmirerUS 05-08-2013 08:18 PM

This is just my opinion - but he needs to notice and learn his mum's facial expressions. She has this look that says "I'm in charge, and this may be too droll but I am sucking it up because I am tough as heck and I won't let them see me being less than THE QUEEN"

Do you know the look I mean? She doesn't look happy, but she does look like she is listening, though her thoughts may be a bit dark or skeptical. But she never shows that she is bored. He needs to learn that look.

We all do this in out jobs - slap on a face because it all goes better when we do. He needs to as well, IMHO.

Iluvbertie 05-08-2013 08:52 PM

No - don't know the look you mean. She often looks bored when listening to speeches and always has done so.

I totally know what you mean. I personally love the look that she seems to often get when people sing "God Save the Queen." It's very... "Damn right, I am the Queen and you will sing!"

Absolutely true. I watched the State Opening of Parliament steaming live last night and whilst Charles looked pensive (which he often does during speeches) I didn't think he looked "bored" at any stage.

When it comes to photos we have to remember the shutter speed of cameras and that the picture we see was an expression that lasted a fraction of a second and, for the most part, The Queen is almost alway shown in a good light, the same cannot be said of Charles. It is like they go out of the way to show him in a poor light.

Prince Charles: Harry

Prince Charles has been at Watisham today, presenting medals to Harry's unit for their service in Afghanistan. What he has to say about the Air Corps, eir families and the insight into his relationship with Harry is worth reading.

It also mentions other info about BRF but that is just repeat info. The stuff about today's visit is new - which is why it's on this thread.

The DM on the POW at Wattisham today. There are nice photos and the piece is less snarky than usual.

Photos of the Prince show him to be very animated today. It must make a difference to know that these are Harry's comrades in arms. As much as the POW always looks engaged when visiting troops, I am sure this is a bit more meaningful for him.

I loved seeing just how engaged he was! I have a feeling music (and the arts in general) just happens to be one of his passions. I remember reading he played the cello when he was younger, so I'm sure it's a pleasure for him to go and see other young people take part in this he enjoyed when their age.

Fantastic combo - Charles, York and the Mallard - green with envy

What is the Mallard?

AdmirerUS 07-08-2013 12:22 PM

It's a speed demon of a historic train. It is its 75th anniversary. Do a search on #mallard75 to read all about it.

Got the chance to say Hello to a excited Prince Charles this morning at the Museum. I got some beautiful pictures but I didn't ask him about "how he felt" I heard other people ask him though.

I just saw a video on BBC World News Today of Prince Charles in York. A little boy gave him a gift for the new baby, which was very nice. I wonder if Lumutqueen appeared on the video. It looked like a lot of fun. Prince Charles must have been distracted but he didn't show it.
