MEDIA: Prince Charles must despair of ever rebuilding his image
Prince Charles has every right to feel miffed. In the run-up to his
50th birthday next month, his popularity rating at last seemed to be
creeping up. The anniversary of Princess Diana’s death in August had not
provoked the predicted renewal of last year’s hysteria. Better still,
the Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph both ran series last week that not
only recorded his acts of kindness but also shifted the balance of blame
for his failed marriage.
