The role of the sovereign is changing. Prince Charles realizes that he can contribute to many aspects of British public life. Kings and Queens since the reign of King George V gradually became stronger constitutional monarchs who were above politics; however, they retained the right to advise and to be advised. Prince Charles has no intention of backing away from that perogative. I have difficulty understanding why the government (or is it the public?) finds it offensive to be advised by the best prepared and informed Prince of Wales in British history. I have watched the Prince of Wales and his projects over the past 40 years, and I am with him all the way. He acts, without guile, for charities, organic farming, English farming, on and on. He stands for improvements and British values. Those who complain? They attack and resist him in the strongest terms, but remember A DOG DOES NOT BARK AT A PARKED CAR. This article warmed my heart. The critics of the Prince have a formidable foe! As I have said often, I am a great fan and will march in his parade any time.
