Charles is a meddler and far too political IMO.

He is already infamous for his correspondence with ministers, interjecting himself in discussions he shouldn't and amending policy. I see that getting worse when he is eventually king.

I'm not surprised he's been this way.  He's had far too many years of hanging around having to find something useful and worthwhile to fill in his time while not having a prescribed set of duties for his position.   IMO he has done a lot of very good things and has filled his time well, but he is a man with opinions and he has expressed them.  

However, I think that once he finally becomes king he will settle into that role and toe the line and be a good king, as Edward VII did.

Except he isn't just expressing opinions. He has private meetings with ministers, has influenced and changed policy and refuses to be transparent about it.

I think it's a huge leap to think he will toe the line in yhe future when he has jumped over it already.

I see Charles as a hard-working and dedicated man who truly wants to make a positive difference for his country, the people and the environment. He is conscientious, assiduous, sedulous and comes from a place of caring albeit sometimes his delivery and tendency to meddle over-shadow his intentions.
I believe Charles is the most prepared future monarch the UK has ever had and that he truly wants to make a positive difference. If his track record as the Prince of Wales is any indication he will be a good monarch.
However, the public has a long memory and his past personal life casts a long dark shadow over his duties and dedication to the monarchy.

Just back from trip to France for the 100 years commemoration of the battle of Villers Bretonneux and have to say that our meeting with Prince Charles was an absolute highlight.
 We were chosen among a few other families/descendants of the soldiers and had been told to meet at a certain point  after the ceremony. After a long wait he appeared and spoke to every family group. He was really lovely- shook our hands, really listened and looked at the photos we had of our grandfathers and spoke with much feeling about the horrors of World War One.
We couldn't take a photo while we were speaking to him but may be sent one by the organisers.
 I feel as if I really see his point for the first time.

How lovely for you! It must have been so special for your family to be able to  be at the commemoration.

I'm really sorry if it is the wrong place to ask this but I just could not find a thread about Charles' fashion, so I'll ask here. He has worn many different kilts. Is there any reason as to which one to wear for a certain occasion? Does each kilt represent a different clan and he then honours this clan by wearing their kilt? Excuse my ignorance but I know nothing of this but would like to learn  Smiley

I think Charles wears kilts from areas in Scotland where he holds a title (Rothesay, Renfrew, etc), as well as areas the queen has title or ownership, such as Balmoral.

He can't just wear other clans' kilts (i.e. tartans), he can only wear those related to him - by descent or title, i.e. those that are personal to him. I'm not sure how many he wears though, might be that he just sticks with his own (i.e. one of his own), and if he does rotate through them (i.e. all tartans he has a right to wear) then maybe based on location (& occasion) and things like that.

Some clans also have more than one tartan - that is a formal dress tartan along with another pattern. This would add to the number of kilts he could wear.

Here's some interesting reading: http://www.tartansauthori...-of-tartan/royal-tartans/

"The Prince of Wales, HRH Prince Charles, has been a staunch supporter of the Kilt and wears a number of tartans linked with titles he holds."
