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..!

The Queen's "persuasive speech" to accept Charles was something I found cringeworthy. There was no question that he would get it IMO. I wonder if he will continue to whine about his "bad upbringing," after the Queen practically begged, Probably.

Couldn't someone more tactful have been found for this role?

Right but she appeared to be almost pleading. Which I found odd.

^I found it odd too, Sandy. I also found it a tad inappropriate to even mention it in her speech.

Perhaps it was a deliberate ploy to force their hand into picking Charles..

Odd but approved by at least the British government as the only speech she ever gives that isn't approved it the Christmas Address.

I suspect it was an attempt by Britain to keep the image of the 'British' Commonwealth alive even though the term 'British' was removed years ago. Her speech smacked of appealing to the Commonwealth to return to trading with Britain as we did before they chose the EEC over us but now, with Brexit, they won't back what they had. The sop was that she could then appeal to make Charles Head afterwards - but I notice they didn't go so far as to make in hereditary so William isn't guaranteed this position. Therefore in 20 or so years no doubt Charles will have to make the same appeal on behalf of his son.
