Letter: Prince's good works unsung

The Independent Online
Sir: Your leading article on 22 April "A manifesto for the monarchy" suggest that the Prince of Wales should follow the example of the Princess Royal's "impressive, determined charity work".

Surely he is doing this already, through the Prince's Trust and a host of other concerns to which he gives his unstinting support. Last year Prince Charles carried out over 600 engagements, many of them relating to charitable causes. The Prince's good work both at home and aboard receives very little publicity, while every opportunity is taken to show him in a bad light.
