Inter-marriages and ducks
Charles is an avid proponent of organic farming, which is easy to do when you live on huge tracts of public housing in jolly old England and have large staffs at your disposal to spread the sheep manure. He also styles himself as an ecologist, but last year he commandeered a jet to attend the Copenhagen climate change summit, generating an estimated 6.4 tons of carbon dioxide - 5.2 tons more than if he had used a commercial plane. Last summer, he and his wife Camilla visited Brunei in Asia. For the trip, he hired a private jet, leading to accusations of 'green hypocrisy' as the visit was designed to highlight environmental issues. Hmmm … ecologist you say … must have great relationships with BP officials.
Anyway, this is the lad who’s going to save the world. I can only hope his mother lives to be 110!
