Who knows. Charles certainly knows how to indulge himself, doesn't he?

^He's an expert at it and accustomed to nothing less.  Yuck. 

All I know is, I'm quite tired of seeing this thread pop up.  Enough already.  Vent over.

Charles is allegedly pleased at his new PR image of the doting grandfather.   He is clueless to the reactions of the public ie their being tired of him being rammed down their throats.   They know the truth ie that he rarely sees them and keeps his distance for reasons known.   Sadly for him he will never be popular as there is too much history.  His over indulgent 70th celebrations (whilst others starve) and desperately trying to make him happen (also displacing the Brexit negotiations front pages on front pages) just reeks of desperation and turned people off even more.

Supposedly Charles marketed himself as being "of the times" and concerned about "current" issues. Yet with this over the top self congratulatory tour with events and birthdays and even a giant poster of his face, in Africa and the stamps, it seems to be overindulgence that would make Louis XIV appear modest. He is so out of touch and if he kept the birthday more low key and not thrust images of himself and Camilla on the public, there would be better feelings about his being the next king. If his 70th birthday became this epic event imagine what the Coronation will be!

His only hope is to go quietly about his business and try and gain respect.  He has tried every PR stunt from the ridiculous weatherman, to the village idiot and now the doting grandfather (which everyone knows he is definitely not for reasons known).  The PR team must be young and very naive not to realise the public see through all of this and turn off even more.

You know, twenty years ago, if he had celebrated like this no one would have thought any less of him, but at this point, the only people who are in awe of him are the others who went, members of reigning dynasties in Europe that are just like each other. Over paid, over extravagant, and are certainly milking the taxpayer all they can.

It is overkill especially the gun salute and the stamps, the giant poster of his face in Africa, endless celebrations, and the photos of him as the 'lovable' codger.
