  1. Your report is so excellent! It has so many pictures of the royals present, pictures I haven’t seen in other sites. I’m so glad so many people showed up for his party. I think Prince Charles deserves a lot of credit for his unwavering support of young people and the conservation of our environment. Thirty years ago he was promoting practices that were derided then and common practice today- such as organic planting and recycling. Too many people define him by his failed marriage to the late Princess of Wales and I, for one, think it’s not fair. He is human, and like all of us, he’s bound to make mistakes. But the sum total of his endeavors is very positive and I’m glad to see so many people support him. My only quibble is that we have to content ourselves with pictures of the guests arriving in their cars. I would have loved to be able to see everyone’s outfit!

  2. Yes, it is unfortunate that the Prince is still and always will be ridiculed for his mismanagement of his marriage with Princess Diana because of his long time affair with Mrs. Parker Bowles that caused Princess Diana great unhappiness and pain, they say it should be in the past, but can it ever be, I’m not sure it can or will unfortunately the older folks that were around watching it happen have shared it will the younger generation and they don’t take to kindly to the brake down and destruction of Princess Diana’s marriage by a woman that was much older and suppose to be wiser but obviously not nicer!
