THE PRINCE OF WALES is now viewed as the ‘nation’s favourite’ and is finally respected by the masses, columnist claims.
It seems that after decades of criticism following his divorce from Princess Diana in 1996, Prince Charles seems to have finally won back the respect of the British public. The observations have been made by royal columnist and author Victoria Arbiter when speaking to Australian website 9Honey.
The next in line to the throne was encumbered in controversy when his relationship with Princess Diana ended in 1996. However, according to Victoria Arbiter, Prince Charles has since managed to reconnect with public opinion.
The claims come following Prince Andrew’s sacking from royal duties.
We, at Euro Weekly News ask, does Prince Charles benefit from the controversy surrounding his younger brother?
Perhaps, and while Andrew’s statement said he was stepping back from public duties for the ‘foreseeable future’, it is understood, as stated in the Daily Mail, that Charles has every intention of making his expulsion permanent.
But while these claims about a new royal favourite have come out recently, the turn in favour isn’t as recent. Prince Charles has won the respect of the British public over the past few years thanks to his charity work and quirky personality, according to the leading royal expert.
Victoria remarked during her interview with 9Honey: ‘Call it rebranding, a happy marriage or simply the wisdom of his years, the trifecta combined have led to Charles now being viewed as the nation’s favourite, a charming and affable granddad as opposed to an eccentric and out-of-touch meddler.’
The royal columnist also suggests that it is the prince’s charity work and environmentalist views – which were recently highlighted in a ITV documentary – that have won him favour in the past few years.
Ms Arbiter also hints that Prince Charles became far happier in his own skin after marrying Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.
Writing for Australian website 9Honey Ms Arbiter commented: “Charles has undertaken every stop, every engagement and every country with a gusto and enthusiasm that could put the energiser bunny to shame.”
It seems the tide is finally changing for Prince Charles who is the longest serving heir apparent and Prince of Wales in British history.
