Listen to Prince Charles
Country Life editor Clive Aslet eloquently argues that Prince Charles has every right to express himself to ministers, and they would do well to listen to him. Like Mr Aslet I cannot claim to agree with every one of HRH's opinions, but as he says, that is beside the point. The Prince of Wales is a thoughtful and dedicated man whose wide range of experiences have given him appreciation of perspectives likely to be ignored by the contemporary political class, and modern Britain needs his insights more than ever.
