Quote
The field was often walked by author and poet Hardy and can be seen from Max Gate, the stone house (now owned by the National Trust) that the author built as his home. It is where he wrote Tess Of The d’Urbervilles, Jude The Obscure and The Mayor Of Casterbridge, as well as much poetry, until his death in 1928.

No wonder Downton Abbey creator Lord (Julian) Fellowes, who lives nearby and is president of the Thomas Hardy Society, is outraged about this threat to what he describes as ‘a most beautiful swooping field’ — though he says he’s ‘absolutely sure’ that the Prince is unaware of the plan.

Were it to go ahead, this would be a classic case of concreting over the countryside.

I think Charles does know but when it comes to him living by the standards that he tells others to live by he just never can seem to manage it. This is why so many think of Charles as an arrogant hypocrite.

One crucial point missing from this story is the author should have emphasised that the Duchy is not the private possession of the Prince Charles - he only has access to the profits in his role as Prince of Wales. It goes to the first born son of the reigning monarch.

For this reason the Queen never recieved the income when her father was king and the income reverted to the Treasury. If the monarchy was to be abolished this estate would revert to the Treasury i.e. the public purse.

So Charles is a custodian of this vast empire very much like the National Trust is and, as such, he should be utilising it for the good of everyone and not just lining his pocket.

I am sure the DM has a closet republican agenda - trashing the young royals and PC at any opportunity and I also suspect PC knows the game could possibly be up for him which is probably why he instructed Michael Peat to make as much money from the estate as possible.

Jesus God, when it enough enough?

The royals get public funds, private income from the land, income from investments, income from business deals, yet it is never enough.
