Most definitely including members of the royal family - most of whom are also eligible to vote (Camilla, Kate, Harry, Beatrice, Eugenie, Sophie, Anne, Birgitte, Katherine, Michael and Marie-Christine are all HRHs but all have the right to vote as they are commoners).

The Queen makes her views known and it was reported in the late 1990s that she told Mr Blair that she wouldn't sign legislation that removed some of her powers - so the legislation wasn't even brought before the parliament. She interferes a lot more than we are told and Charles does nothing more than he is allowed to do - as do his sons and siblings as well.

They have the same rights as any other citizen with regard to contacting ministers of the government and expressing their points of view.

The RF are not supposed to meddle in politics and the fact the ER does too doesn't make what PC does right.  He is only interfering for his own advantage, as does ER.  His meddling probably wouldn't be seen as a problem if he was doing so with the best interests of his future subjects in  mind.  We can all vote and write to MP's etc but none of us have the clout PC and ER do - they should butt out.  

In cases like this I wish for a real left-leaning PM like Corbyn

^Correct, they are not meant to meddle in politics, that is what we are always told, hence all the trouble gone to to release chucky´s letters, and we can see now why he did not want us to see them.  He probably gets a say in  many things but we just don´t get to hear about them, but now we know it is happening, confirmed as well.  If they were allowed to meddle in politics and it was confirmed public knowledge then there is the little question of why was it kept secret.  If things are legitimate and above board you have no need to them.  A lot of their little secrets coming out now, and long over due.

Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt

The BBC has learnt that the Duke of Cambridge does receive Cabinet papers. He is given them occasionally.
Cabinet Office: "The Duke of Cambridge is a senior member of the royal family and future heir to the throne and therefore of course ...
Prince William is given the gov documents to help him understand the workings of Whitehall and to prepare him for when he is King



I wonder if i want to be  Normal William understands what he's reading .I'm sure Charles does . It is more scary that William gets a hold of them then Charles

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

It's normal that Charles gets info. He's the heir and the Queen is 90. Anything can happen in a day.

But there's a difference between getting privileged knowledge and using it and his position to influence elected politicians.

Ministers rapped for keeping Prince Charles' letters secret

SCOTLAND’S information watchdog has found the Scottish Government guilty of breaching freedom of information law by keeping ‘black spider’ letters from Prince Charles secret.

Why didn't the idiot just write the notes on self igniting paper?
or send highly encrypted e-mails through a dummy account.
He should have watched more Bond movies, smuck!

It's such a no-brainer really
If you want do something naughty/ risky that anyone might use against you at some point you:
A think very hard on whether it's worth the risk
B get rid of potential evidence afterwards
C make sure you have plausible deniability, a potential scapegoat to take the fall and get a solid alibi

Really Charles, 60+ years in the RF and you still don't know the basic's....color me disappointed!
Tsk tsk tks!  bignono

Just to be clear my last post was pure snark and sarcasm.
He is an idiot to write and stick his nose where it doesn't belong.
