Lady Adelaide, thank you very much for posting the Youtube link  Hug   I thoroughly enjoyed that doco.  

I have always liked Charles, for all his foibles.  None of us is perfect.  He and I share a passion for the environment, and for gardening, and preserving the natural history.  I have always liked the way he has tried to preserve historical crops and breeds.   As for the environment, he did address the inconsistencies/hyprocisy to some extent.  Within the world in which he lives, there is a limit to what can be done as far as environmentally sound fuel is concerned.  His job requires him to fly around, and so he flies around.  In his world as he sees and understand it, there is not an option for him to not do the job to which he was born, so he does it, and does his bit, within his power, to draw attention to global warming and does what he can about it. Maybe not as much as we would like, but he does what he can, and by being who he is and making as much fuss as he has, perhaps he has in fact done more than he otherwise had the skills and capacity to do to help the environment.  When Prince Charles talks about the effects of global warming on the Great Barrier Reef, quite a few people listen.  As a young man he had a car's engine redesigned so it was fuelled by wine and something else - I've forgotten the other component, but the result was the vapours smelt nice - and a train fuelled by cooking oil.  I believe he is genuinely concerned about the environment, and I think he does what he can, in his own way, and I admire him for it.

I loved seeing Camilla giving her views.   I thought Harry and William were, erm, interesting.  They both came across to me as rather... myopic.

From the documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKtTsViKtW8

At about 36:50, Harry on the effect of Charles' time in the military: "being with real people and living those fantastic experiences and actually fending for yourself, eating jam sandwiches, living in pretty harsh conditions, all of that stuff that I think is pretty crucial."

Eating jam sandwichesLaughing

It was at that point that I stopped taking the documentary seriously at all.

Myopic is the perfect word for both William and Harry.

I need to watch the full documentary. I've seen some clips. Gosh, I adore Camilla. I agree Charles does what he can and isn't quite as hypocritical as many celebrities who sit there, yelling about stuff, living their luxury lives; Charles at least tries to use the position and leverage he can to actually do stuff, which I think one can appreciate. It is what royalty should do with their unearned privilege and fame. Use it properly. They have an obligation to do so and I think Camilla nailed it saying that duty comes first before everything else. Anything. And that's as it should be.

I mean, I agree with Harry about the military. Excepting jam sandwiches. Where did that come from?

Doesn't eating jam sandwiches just mean you cobble together whatever you can to eat? Like mustard sandwiches when you just have condiments and bread and no meat or cheese. I'm so glad Charles has Camilla that picture of them in the stamp is just great they are a real team and a real love match. William's looks are just horrible he had about five minutes ten years ago when he was super cute then downhill no wonder he got Kate back and married her.

I'll follow Chuck's advice that this is a crisis when he lives like it's a crisis.

There is a cute little piece of technology called Skype that means you don't have to jet all over the world.  Maybe someone should tell Chuck about it.  Given his apparent commitment I'm sure he will embrace it.  He can also move into smaller quarters.  Not use helicopters and large vehicles.  Not have massive estates.

The only thing bigger than Chuck's ecological footprint is his mouth and his belief that he's entitled to use it to scold.

Eventually yes - but HM did make her own youngers sons wait until well into their 40s.

I suspect she is leaving that for Charles who will give it to Camilla and Harry shortly after becoming King. It is traditional now (since Edward VII did it) for the wife of the King to be amongst the first Garters given in the new reign. Harry will still probably be in his late 30s when he gets it - so still younger than his uncles but I doubt that he will get it in the present reign - another sign of the clear difference between the future King and the future also ran royal.

William only got it when he did because HM wanted him to be the 1000th knight.

Apparently Freddles and Mary have confirmed their attendance...

They did. No confirmation for other royal houses yet.

But WA and Maxima have a Austria state visit on that date.
Same for the Swedes ( from Italy).
Felipe and Letizia will be on an official visit to Peru.

They work much more that the Danish princes, but they are kings and queens, and Victoria works a lot too, Gustav since his scandals, let her work more and more, I think.
