IMO a senior royal should be getting As and Bs and not C grades, especially in French because he would have been surrounded by French speakers his entire life (HM, PP and QEQM all spoke French... not as fluent as an advanced speaker but enough to help Charles get more than a C).  How can you get a C when you don't have to work part time, and you can afford the best tutors money can buy.

Because he refused to man up and take control of his education; it's the same reason William apparently decided not to learn anything practical and useful towards his future role. It was just for the 'experience' and the 'fun' and the 'normalcy.' Not about being practical.

Such a shame since in the past monarchs and royals were often heavily educated.

Although we can moan about Charles's interference and unsuitability as a future monarch, he's got a far better grasp of the history and responsibilities of his position than Wills has. He has shown concern for the youth of the country (Princes Trust) and cares about the fabric of everyday life (interest in environmental issues, housing, architecture etc.). One difference between father and son is that Charlie has benefitted from several mentors - e.g. Mountbatten (Uncle Dickie), the Queen Mother (Cookie) and  Laurens Van der Post. All of these individuals have murky aspects to them and Diana even said Jimmy Savile was a sort of mentor to Charles  nervous  But, setting aside the disturbing ways in which Charles may have been influenced or moulded by these people, he undoubtedly gained a lot of guidance from them and was encouraged to think about his role. All Wills has got is his granny (who he seems to disrespect) and Carole or maybe Uncle Gary?!

I think Charles was taught how to act Princely the way they did centuries ago. I don't think he is a big intellectual but hires intellectuals to help where he is lacking.

I think he mostly passes on info that he is told about the environment etc. because he doesn't live his life in the way he preaches.

The Prince's Trust is a good idea and has done some good works but when you really look at it well it looks different then.

Richard Kay: Charles kicks up stink over fish shop ban

Saviour: Prince Charleshas stepped in to save family-run fishmonger's Walter Purkis and Sons which is facing closure after a complaint about the smell



Against a backdrop of Britain’s worst food crisis since mad cow disease, Prince Charles has stepped in to save a family-run fishmongers which specialises in traditional methods of smoking its own haddock and salmon.

Walter Purkis and Sons 133-year-old Victorian smokehouse survived a Luftwaffe bomb during the Blitz,  and has seen off competition from Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer.

But it is now threatened with closure by the local council following a single complaint about smell from  a member of the public.

I think if you look into it Chuck makes his son look bad at least he is passionate about things like youth and the environment and seems to care about his people ...while Willy only cares about vacationing!!! And when he gets bored of that influenced by his good for nothing hanger on hangs with celebs and watches sport!!!

Tea for two as Camilla enjoys a cup of tea with Prince Charles

IT might not have been the most romantic setting, but Prince Charles and Camilla celebrated Valentine’s Day yesterday with a cuppa at the market.


With no butler or bone china to hand, Charles, 64, and his wife helped themselves to sugar with their £1 mugs of tea. “That’s what I like to see, someone doing a bit of work,” Maria Moruzzi – who will have been in the family business at London’s Borough Market for 50 years next year – told them.

I think that's why they are going tehe.

Have they been to Saudi Arabia yet? Or do they still punish adulteresses?

Charles is so in touch with the people he acts like a clown with children, he goes to a pub and he has tea with everyone else.   laugh  Did you see all the gifts they got?

I think that is why Charles says nothing about William & Kate because he thinks the worse they look the better he looks.

I think you have a point there. Charles has always wanted the public to accept Camilla and has spent a fortune on PR etc. This has not really done the trick but along comes Kate and the clingons and Camilla is started to look better by the minute. Charles had no need to spend all that money on PR.

(Having said that I will never warm to her but I can see how her image is improving in the light of Kate's behaviour.)

Camilla is who she is as far as I'm concerned. I have had the same dislike of her before and after Kate. I see William and Kate having their own flaws but it doesn't change my feelings about Camilla.

Do you guys think that Carole might end up trying to make a move and take Charles from Camilla?

When you consider the women Charles is eating alive with his eyes I would say not a chance. If Charles is going to risk an affair it would not be with Carole IMO. One ugly woman in a lifetime should be enough and he has Camilla, one of the ugliest. They don't call her old horse face for nothing.

No; Charles doesn't think Camilla is ugly and it's not looks, it's the ability of Camilla to pamper Charles and make him feel important. I bet Charles is possibly eying an affair and Carole does look like a sharper, younger version of Camilla and being undesired by the rest of the world is possibly part of the attraction. Carole is not hot hot hot by our standards, but that isn't what Charles is looking for. I don't think Camilla is as desirable to Charles now that Camilla has refined herself and I don't think Camilla is tending to Charles as often as we might think. She still retires to Raymill and she is abdicating her position the same way Diana did over time.

Carole vs Camilla, Carole would win because Carole has so much more to gain through a marriage and teh press would LOVE the idea of Carole becoming Princess of Wales and then seeing Camilla tossed off would please the Diana fans.

Camilla is due some pretty vicious karma and I believe that she would end up being replaced if Carole were so inclined.

 Camilla would resort to poison before she let her win.  eating cookies spy

It was reported Camilla had a good laugh when she read that Carole had been to her old Manor home wanting to buy it.

Interesting that Carole was even looking at it?  huh

Carole would have to be deranged to want to bed Charles when she has a nice husband who would be more of a " catch" for any woman than Charles could ever be Prince or no Prince. Charles IMO is a mess.

Camilla probably turns a blind eye if Charles has side affairs. She has it made--the perks, people kow towing to her, and all the privileges for doing the very minimum work.

I believe Carole would bed Chucky if she thought it would get titles for her and Mike and titled spouses for Pippy and Creepy James.

If Carole were to bed Charles then it would destroy the family image that they have worked so hard to present to William. Carole is not that stupid especially since they can get a title without it. After all they hand out titles now as one would bottles of water at a sporting event in the heat.
