yep I see that Bob , but no, A BIG BUT ! don't do as I do but as I say, this is the guy who will be the head of the church of England, holding himself up as the model for all his subjects to follow, he is an adulterer, he favours fox hunting, and wants the ban on hunting mammals with packs of dogs repealed, this from someone who purports to love the countryside, its flora and fauna, the man is a hypocrite of the first water, he will never get my vote or respect, unlike his mother, Philip his father is supposed to be gaffe prone, he is like marmite you either like it or hate it, Charles is not fit to lace up his fathers boots.

Oops, opened up a can of worms there Bob R !! Personally I'd prefer William but "rules is rules" and the hierarchy to the throne is set at birth, therefore your vote won't count Bob L ! In fairness, Charles has worked a very long apprenticeship, obviously learned loads from HM The Queen along the way, and although his (not so) private life has a darker side ( how could ANYONE prefer Camilla to Princess Diana !?!) & his views  not to everyone's tastes, he has done enough IMO to warrant becoming King when it's due.

For what it's worth I don't personally give a rats arse who ascends the throne after our current monarch, it won't affect me or my family one iota. I also very much doubt Charles will care a fig who supports him! He has an almost God given right to become King on the death of his mother. I think none of us know the unadulterated truth about the whole Camillagate affair. From my time in Public Relations in HQ 1BR Corps where I was privy to the details of the murkiest of goings on, events and happenings that were judiciously kept out of the public realm,  I do know things are never as black or white as they seem. Charles has done a huge amount of good, his Prince's Trust is testimony to that. His Duchy of Cornwall business keeps many hundreds of people in employment. Is he a patch on his mother? Absolutely not and I am not entirely sure our beloved Queen's passing won't herald the beginning of the end of the monarchy. He WILL ascend the throne though, all things being equal and I doubt William would even contemplate leapfrogging his father in the ascendancy stakes even if it were constitutionally possible. Not sure his passion for fox hunting makes him unfit either, my wife and daughter both hunted and and many other really good people did as well. Bob L, nothing in my post is in anyway a criticism of yours, you are entirely within your rights to express your opinion, which I respect but don't share. At the end of the day life is simply too short to get upset about things over which we have no control and can never impact on.

It's nice to read your comments,I did it as a wake up call. We all know Charles has been naughty ,yes he will be head of the Church of England,for what's that's worth with the multiculturalism of today . ( most probably with attendance down and Mohammed the most popular name in the U.K. will the Christian religion go the way of the do-do)He like his father have done more good than bad ,okay he talks to trees and doesn't have a clue about woman ,that's not what he's going to be employed for . Victoria and Elizabeth have both led the country with dignity and duty and by the looks are going to very tough act to follow ,Edward only lasted 9 years and Charles is approaching 70 and men don't live much longer. BUT for the record ,tradition of this monarchy has been up and down , we've had divorced,catholic,and foreign imports in the past now we have a guy who on the whole has served us well and deserves his chance .

Isn't it good to enjoy a healthy exchange of different viewpoints. It's not often we disagree about things but it would be a dull, dreary world if we didn't differ in our opinions occasionally.
