That His Royal Highness should have chosen to make this information public is an important fact. This shows that the Prince of Wales has a commitment to openness and truth. It indicates that he would provide the country with an open monarchy, no longer hidden behind the walls of protocol and secrecy.
This is the type of monarchy that Britain will need if it is going to survive into the 21st century. We need a monarch for the people, and Prince Charles can provide that.
Is it not about time that we gave him the opportunity to do the job at which he would be good? To be a monarch for the people.
