I feel he HAS much to offer in these areas.I've always admired these interests,as they are mine as well.Advanced Farming,Gardening, and organic methods are so  essential.I really admire his charitable contributions overall,which are many.-D

His opinions are always interesting, although one might wish that they were sometimes better expressed.

For instance, after William's press conference in realtion to his new role with the Football Association, both he and his father then went on to an engagement which involved the Prince's Trust, one the the POW's most successful and meritorious charitable organisations.

The Prince was reported as stating that he believed that the Organisation was extremely underrated, and perhaps would only achieve the recognition that it deserves when he was dead......

The sentiment is understandable, but reveals some of the bitterness that he obviously feels in connection with his projects and public profile.

I feel that is so very sad,that he feels his death may bring merit to his efforts.Perhaps if he sheds the hair shirt of the martyr, that makes him itch with discomfort .Puts on a regular shirt and lowers himself to consistently be seen  working side by side with the classes of people he sees as beneath him,his future would be brighter.Just my opinion....

Good for him!! He deserves a pat on the back as most of what he said is important, relevant and needs to be said!!!  :) :)

what are his opinions anyway? [I'm not from the UK]

I mean I know about what he thinks on architecture [what I do] and about organic farming, alternative health treatments [like homeopathy] and landscape preservation... but what else?

I suspect it has to do with something like promoting “quality” over “quantity”… am I right?

I’m interested in what he is doing/saying since 1998 [when he visited my country and I saw him "live"]… I think he is a sort of “christian existentialist”, like Kierkegaard or Dostoievsky [this is where his dislike of the current use of “efficiency” comes from]… and that he wants to make sustainable development the “job” of royalty… if this is so I’m with him all the way

Sorry Tampa, I liked it... maybe I'm just excited that he seems to have my own intelectual views... I'm less interested in the family issues


but you are right in the fact that it didn't "flow"

1. family relations
2. comparison with other family members
[he may not be as lovable as Diana or William, but this doesn't make me see him in a bad light]

I'm more interested in what he thinks... and from what I hear I tend to agree with him

The interview was so bad I had to say it twice.  

If Prince Charles wants to bring attention to his causes and view, he needs to master the teniques of how to do a proper interview.

because he gives so little interviews his choice of words and attitude tend to have a much greater impact than they should, the meaning behind is too much dependent on “looks”

what a pity he is honest and not shrewd like politicians are

Oh come on, he has a whole PR machine behind him.

Either he doesn't listen to their advice, ot the advice that they do give is poor.

A mixture of the two I suspect.....

Charles is Scorpion.Being one myself,I do understand alot about his personality.Shrewd,and single-minded,and tenacious.More often than not ,ignoring sound advice and tradition to go his own way,whatever the consequences may be.He may be looking for sympathy,but believe me if he doesn't get it,it really does not matter to him.Self-contained and sufficient he will survive,clinging to his ideology and his dreams of Utopia.Don't worry about this guy,he has more than nine lives. ;)
