http://www.thedailybeast....mile-helicopter-trip.html

Prince Charles is facing charges of being a green hypocrite once again, after he used a total of 200 gallons of aviation fuel, as opposed to four gallons of gasoline, to make an 80-mile journey by helicopter, just days after urging people to save energy by turning off their lights.

and after all the pretty talk during their visit  Wink
Second verse, same as the first. Charles is all do as I say not as I do when it comes to the environment. I mean seriosly, who takes a private jet to pick up an environmental award for being green?

This is what I have come to learn about Charles. He always gives the public something small to complain about while he hides when he does something else that would be considered unethical or nefarious. That's something the Queen Mother taught him--show your left hand, hide your right.

Thank you Getafix! Beer

It is duplicitous, but it has helped the Windsors survive the past century. The Queen Mother was an excellent tutor in public relations for Charles and I remember reading at one point, she took Charles on a walk during one of his Balmoral vacations during the breakdown of his first marriage and told him not to underestimate his first wife. It was at this point that their relationship slightly cooled because she berated him for 1) embarrassing the position 2)cavorting publicly with Camilla (she hated airing dirty laundry) and 3) for going against her advice. Her and Louis Mountbatten were constantly at passive-aggressive odds with one another over Charles. Charles did not take kindly to that and then a month later, the infamous interviews from both sides aired.  

While the QM, in private, hated the scandals that were being dragged out publicly, she ALWAYS supported Charles publicly and that is something that Charles does with his own sons. HM for the longest time stuck her head in the sand and did not support anyone in public, until the last couple of years. Charles may hate what goes down in private, but he will always back up his sons in public. However, unlike HM, Charles has taken a page out of the Queen Mother's book: he will give the public scraps to complain about, because having a Stepford-like approach to their lifestyle raises more eyebrows and causes more tongue-lashings in the longer run.

For example, when the QM wanted to hide from the press how much money her household was getting from the government via personal expensive compared to the Queen (who was much more frugal), she would go to the poorest sections of London in decent wear, but would always wear fur, pearls, and white gloves. That alone would dominate the papers and only a few sentences would be put in about her budget. Charles does the same--he advocates one thing, and then shows a little glamour to offset it, but not enough to really raise eyebrows about what he does as a cumulative effect.

Great post Hazeleyes Thumb up

But you know, there is so much you can entertain with bread and circus mentality.

It worked time immemorial, for sure...but that was before the info-age we're in now.

Plus me-me generation doesn't have the same tolerance that someone should always be above them becuase...they bring in x amount of $

It jarres when there are lot more hunger and poor and rising prices....

The disfranchised don't rally around the royals as their saviour as they used to.

The ones did and do..are getting old and are the ones suffering for their support.

This is why Upchuck is trying to change to save the Firm.

Diana knew this way back when and tried to include more plebs in their visits.

Billy the Plumber ignores this lesson; Harry upholds it.

Right. End of rant.

You make excellent points Getafix. What worked in the past does not always work time and time again due to the technological changes around us. The War of the Wales was momentous b/c of its leaking and intrusive press, but now, due to forums such as this one, anyone can read up and see who predicted what, who wrote who, which articles were quoted or which posts were copied by press and we can sift through the pr and the lies to get to the real truth.

Yes but very few do go on forums like this.Just look at the latest opinion poll the Daily Mail had last week-Willaim and Kate way out ahead on the popularity front etc.Most are simply not bothered enough to delve deep

YouGov polls and others from reputable polling companies, not the Daily Fail, have conducted regular surveys since the 1990's about the popularity of the royal family in Britain. It is usually between 70% and 80% popularity and has never dropped below 70% ever! Not even at the height of the War of the Wales's.

The Internet has been going for many years now (hasn't made a perceptible difference in people's views) and as has been pointed out, very few people follow royal forums in the general population.

Every survey I've seen in the past decade has William, Kate and Harry in front by miles in popularity except for the Queen, with people like Andrew, Edward and Camilla languishing in the 7%s or below and Charles not that much better.
