Dear Tony, one is concerned....

So, Charles has been putting pressure on Government.......

Dominic Grieve said the Prince’s letters were “particularly frank” and would “potentially have undermined his position of political neutrality” if published.
Attorney General blocks release of Prince Charles letters to avoid 'serious damage' to his future as king - Telegraph

Much as I detest Blair/Brown and the Labour party, HRH has no right to interfere with the executive, and he is not yet the Monarch FFS!

This bodes badly for the time when he does eventually sit on the throne, we all know that her Majesty offers words of "advice", but outright meddling should not be tolerated. Mummy should give him a cuff round the ear with the Royal Mace.

I suspect some, or all of the letters will emerge due to the leakiness of government, either maliciously or by design. Something I look forward to.

That is such a double twist as one could imagine... or maybe not. So, there are letters and even though
Mr Grieve said there was “nothing improper” in the content of the letters, but said there was an overwhelming argument against disclosing them, “centred upon the Prince of Wales’s preparation for kingship and the importance of not undermining his future role as Sovereign”.
meaning if they were disclosed, he might not become King, and now he will, even though such letters exist.
Would it be improper to say it's kind of funny?

HRH has paid a heavy price through the years for the unforgivable crime of being more intelligent than most politicians and journalists. How dare he think out of the box?

If I was king, I'd bloody well say what I wanted. The govenmint has the right to take no notice, but that's all.

A king with an opinion. I'm all for it. Not that I'm in a hurry to see mummy depart I hasten to add.

I couldn't help but conjur up the image of liz whacking chas round the ears with a couple of white rodents held by their tails Monty Python style

Such information makes one wonder just what influence members of the Royal Family actually have on industry and business. From evidence around the corporations just do what they want almost with little fear of suffering like the rest, yet.....

Even if he was, which I seriously doubt, that is not a particularly high recommendation is it?

“centred upon the Prince of Wales’s preparation for kingship and the importance of not undermining his future role as Sovereign”.
Not intelligent enough to look after his own status as future king. Typical of the modern age, does what he likes and then expects the State to bail him out. I am afraid that he is one of the few people in public life who make me very angry.

A friend has had considerable contact with the person in question.When I asked about him intelligence wasn't one of the qualities mentioned.King George III was however.

Seems to be the fate of the eldest son of Queens that they do not get the throne until they are in their dotage.
I for one like Charlie,he is of my generation.
The King can only wag his finger under the noses of politicians now,we were at our best when they wagged a axe.

The man is a supporter of 'alternative medical therapies' such as homeopathy. Let him stay hermetically sealed in the deluded box.

He can do all his crackpot plant talking etc until the cows come home as far as I'm concerned.

But when he starts -- even ever so slightly -- to try to impose his will upoon elected politicians then we're on very dangerous constitutional ground.

The price for the letters not being published should be that he is told to keep his privileged gob shut. He is paid handsomely by taxpayers to do that.

Spelling again. Sigh.

Removed and replaced by their clones, so nothing changes, if the only choice you have choice is betwixt two turds you always end up with shite.

Not an auspicious name for a king...

Ah Tony, not all politicians are turds (and not all princes are shite) but I really believe that giving Charles the ability to meddle without public review is likely to hurt the monarchy as well as our precious democracy in the end.

Perhaps history could be repeated.

That is political double speak if ever I heard it, just by being sent and therefore read by the intended recipient they have undermined his position of political neutrality, whether they are published or not is totally irrelevant.

I believe all the chaps shown standing on that platform were eventually denoggined Mr C.
Even if they had to dig em up to do the deed.
