I didn't see any pictures or hear of Anne, Andrew, or Edward at these events. Are they out of the country?

Interesting documentary on the Prince of Wales at 60, being charming and jovial. With scenes from Prince William's investiture to the Order of the Garter (available for a limited time only. posted 17/11/08)

Given that Prince Charles likes to speak out on a number of issues now, it would not surprise me at all (but it would dismay me) if he continued to do so even more vocally after he becomes King...then again this IS from the Daily Mail...

I don't believe it for a moment, he will have different duties and responsibilities then, and I'm sure he will adapt to them. Fundamentally he is a traditionalist, so he doesn't strike me as being the kind of person who would want to try to make any significant alteration to the role of the monarchy.

He had done more than Edward VIII for the role of Prince of Wales. Being soverign would be harder...

Nicolas Windsor and Duke of Kent arrives at Buckingham Palace


That's not Lord Nicholas but his brother the earl of Saint-Andrews

Someone remarked to me that Prince Charles is already older than Edward VII was when he ascended to the throne. The example of the two Edwards shows that you can never tell what kind of a job a Prince of Wales is going to make of being a king until he becomes one.

Indeed. I think Charles will be a competent king.

I wonder how the British public viewed Charles & Canilla these days.
