I thought it was great! Nuanced and didn't take an obvious position, although I imagine it will be too negative fo his fans and too sympathetic for his haters. I was just coming here to share it.

Quote
Over the years, Charles has set up some twenty charities reflecting the range of his Bouvard-and-P?cuchet-like investigations. He has written several books, including ?Harmony,? a treatise arguing that ?the Westernized world has become far too firmly framed by a mechanistic approach to science.? He has sent thousands of letters to government ministers?known as the ?black spider memos,? for the urgent scrawl of his handwriting?on matters ranging from school meals and alternative medicine to the brand of helicopters used by British soldiers in Iraq and the plight of the Patagonian toothfish. He has given countless speeches: to British businessmen, on their poor business practices; to educators, on the folly of omitting Shakespeare from the national curriculum; to architects, on the horridness of tall modern buildings; and so on.

You beat me to it.

I think this is an excellent piece! It can be transferred to other Crown Princes' and the fog of delusion they are raised under.

I think this is why I like Victoria so much, I think her brother was continued to be raised under the "you can do no wrong, and you are the best" delusion, even after he was moved down a notch while Victoria sought a more authentic life and surrounds herself with people she trusts.

Good gracious, he certainly seems like a know-it-all! Also funny how he seems to be criticizing everyone (at least in these examples provided from the article): Criticizing business people, teachers, architects, and also telling politicians what to do. Remind me...when did he get advanced degrees in business, education, architecture, and political science?!

Dial it down, old man. Why does he feel the need to tell everyone else what to do? Oh yeah, he won the vagina lottery...he must know more than the experts  Roll Eyes

A TV adaptation of the play "King Charles III" is on TV in the U.K. next week:

The late Tim Pigott-Smith, who sadly died recently, plays the title role.

Charles and Camilla are in Northern Ireland for today and tomorrow and in the Republic of Ireland on May 11th and 12th.
The visit was embargoed due to security concerns.

My initial thought on the article was how outdated the protocols were for the monarchy which viewed itself much like the kings and queens did centuries before. In the end the sensitive boy has proved to be wiser than anyone thought, bold in expressing his opinions, and determined to make a difference in the world, embracing many cultures. Most importantly the man who was lampooned for talking to plants turned out to be a Renaissance man, ahead of his time on environmental issues. Perhaps having to wait to be king allowed him to become authentic and true to himself. JMO.

I used to think alternative medicine was hocus pocus until my daughter got Lyme disease with co-infections and western medicine failed. I found myself in the hands of a very good alternative medicine man who helped my daughter immensely. After that I've looked at things with an open mind. Charles has always been ahead of the curve on this kind of stuff so homeopathic water is just coming into it's own because different types of water contain different types of minerals so depending on your medical problems it could actually help. Western medicine eventually catches up. It's the same when Charles was lampooned about environmental concerns 40 years ago. JMO.

Personally, I'm not convinced of the effects of homeopathic remedies. That is not to say that I disapprove of herbs and the like. Several herbs have proved being beneficial

To me homoepathics are usually 100% shaken water  where something has ever flown over or walked by.
