Prince Charles

I was reading an article the other day about the sterling work Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have been doing in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. In one short visit they have done far more than all the woffling of all the politicians to improve relations with the Muslim world -merely by being dignified, good-humoured and showing respect for other cultures while being prepared to appeal to their better traditions against current extremism. Once again we see the advantages of having a constitutional monarchy that can stand apart from party politics and short-term thinking.
