“Many of his views on architecture and gardening are interesting, and I’d always be willing to listen to them privately. But that’s very different from him doing public speaking as king. The genius of the queen is that most of us have no idea what she’s thinking.
Other ministers were more outspoken, with one telling the paper: ‘Although this type of interference will be tolerated when he is Prince of Wales, it will not be the same when he becomes King.”
“The problem with Charles is that he thinks he has to be interesting and he thinks people are interested in what he thinks. He seems to have misunderstood the role,” said another.
