Charles is longest monarch-in-waiting in british history
Prince Charles seems to be making a habit out of sneaking surprisingly candid announcements out on his new website.
Is it just a ploy to drive traffic?
Having previously revealed on his website that Camilla would never be Queen, in the latest video uploaded to the site he has hinted that he feared his legacy as king would be cut short.
During a visit to Dumfries House, the stately home in East Ayrshire which the Prince helped save for the nation, Charles says in a piece to camera: “Impatient? Me? What a thing to suggest! Yes of course I am.” He added: “I’ll run out of time soon. I shall have snuffed it if I’m not careful.”

British press baron Richard Desmond has apparently agreed not to demand the closure of newspaper the Irish Daily Star, which a parent company controlled by him partly bankrolls, after editor Michael O'Kane fell on his sword and resigned over the weekend.
O'Kane had been suspended since he published photographs of Kate Middleton topless in the paper.
At the time of their publication, Mr Desmond announced: "I'm very angry at the decision to publish these photographs...Northern & Shell is profoundly dismayed at the decision made by the Irish Daily Star, which would never have been made by any of the newspapers or magazines under our editorial control.”

Savvy Shopper Kate Fights For a Bargain
She's famed for her thrifty style when it comes to recycling outfits for official enagements, yet it still comes as some surprise to hear that Kate Middleton is not above haggling for a bargain when she sees something she likes.

For among the visitors to a recent antiques fair at a showground in Wales, not far from where Kate and William live, was the Duchess of Cambridge, and upon spotting a pair of antique vases that took her fancy, ruthless Kate she beat the stall holder down from £180 to £160.
Nick Bayliss, owner of Ludlow-based Continuity Fairs, who chatted with the duchess, said: "We had sent out complimentary tickets to Prince William and the duchess for our May fair and again in October, and to my absolute delight in she comes with her party on the Sunday morning and had her hand stamped with the green dragon by my daughter, who didn't recognise her."
Just 21 percent of the population say they like Prince Charles in latest poll.
Poor Prince Charles. 2012 wasn’t supposed to be like this.
It was meant to be a glorious year of royal pageantry, the year of the Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, and the year in which the reins of power began to be handed over to Charles at last. A chance to make his mark.

The year was looking distinctly dicey for Prince Philip after he was twice admitted to hospital this summer – but the old goat pulled through, and now, as he and his wife celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary, he has become the Royal family’s most surprising star, with soaring popularity ratings.
Maybe it was nearly losing him that made us finally realize how cool he is.
But one of the big surprises of a wide ranging Mori poll undertaken this week to gauge attitudes to the Royal family was the surge in Prince Philip’s popularity – a decade ago just 5% of the population named him as one of their favorite members of the Firm, today, it’s 11%.
William's grandfather is famoulsy outspoken - what's he saying in this picture?
The palace got into a dreadful panic yesterday after pictures of Prince William at his RAF base were released showing details of his co-workers logon IDs on computer screens in the background.
This prompted the Royalist to study the backgrounds a little more closely. And look what we found! This picture of the Queen and Philip pinned up on the noticeboard behind William as he has a mug of tea, next to a container of roach killer.

And, upon enlargement by the Daily Beast's photo team, we can even see that a SPEECH BUBBLE has been stuck into Philip's mouth! What is William's famously outspoken grandfather saying? I do hope the workmates of the heir to the throne are not MOCKING the MONARCH!!
Released as part of PR drive for new website
Well, there are no topless shots, but what did you expect?
As part of its PR drive to launch their new website - which has already informed us that Prince Charles does not demand seven eggs be boiled for his breakfast and just eat one, that Camilla will never be queen and accidentally disclosed the passwords of William's RAF pals - the palace today released these pictures taken by Kate during the royal tour in Borneo.
"This is a tree we saw in Borneo which I thought was really beautiful"
And what do we think?
Royal screw-up to launch new website
Earlier today Prince William’s press team published a series of ten photos showing Prince William’s working day as a search and rescue pilot at RAF Valley. The pictures showed him engaged in tasks such as making the single bed he sleeps in at the base when he is on duty, chatting to his mates and sucking a Biro as he peered intently at a computer.
The pictures were published as part of a PR drive by William’s team to promote the young royals new website – but alas the exercise has now ended in farce after the Ministry of Defence was forced to reset user names and passwords used by its staff on computer systems which were visible in the background of the shots.
St James’s Palace has now said that, amazingly, an "administrative oversight" led to the series of 10 candid shots published before they had been cleared by the MoD.

New poll will reopen debate on succession
Prince Charles recently stated on his new website that his wife Camilla will never be Queen, taking the title of Princess consort instead on his accession to the throne.
But now the inevitability of Charles's coronation is being called into question once again, as a new poll shows that public support in the UK for Prince Charles is still declining, despite his intensive efforts to rebrand himself as a modern monarch in waiting, with just 21% of people now naming him among their two or three favorite members of the royal family in a new national poll. To make matters worse, his rating has actually slumped from 38% in 2001, suggesting that the Charles’s decade-long PR offensive has actually been counter-productive.
In a further blow for the monarch-in-waiting, just 2% of the public named his wife, Camilla as one of their favorite royals, shattering dreams that she may be taken to the hearts of the British people in the way Diana was. The rock-bottom rating may also go some way to explaining why Charles recently publicly stated on his website that Camilla will never be Queen.

Source previously dismissed as 'fantasist'.
An Australian gossip mag is reporting that Kate Middleton is pregnant, citing as their source one of Kate’s ‘oldest friends’, Jessica Hay, who tells New Idea that her old school pal Kate has ‘wonderful, happy news’ to share, ‘with next month tipped as the deadline for the revelation’ that she is pregnant.
But don’t get too excited, as Miss Hay may not be the most well-informed of sources.
She is the ‘best pal’ who claimed that Kate had posters of William on her bedroom wall at boarding school – a story categorically denied by Kate on air in her engagement interview, and Hay was also behind a bizarre story, subsequently withdrawn, that Kate had faeces smeared on her bedsheets as part of a bullying campaign.

Prince Charles has agreed a secret out-of-court settlement with a former butler who claimed he was unfairly dismissed, reports the Daily Mail.
Under-butler Grant Harrold claimed he was forced to quit his £24,000-a-year job looking after Charles and Camilla last year. He refused to go to work for them at Clarence House, their official residence in London, after claiming he suffered panic was said, caused him to suffer panic attacks when he was in a big city.
Mr Harrold told the Mail that while he could not discuss details of the case, he wanted to make clear that he had the highest regard for Charles and Camilla personally.
Since the conclusion of his action against the royal household he has started his own business, Nicholas Veitch, which organises fine dining events, etiquette dinners and butlering tuition.
New movie does not yet have release date
Naomi Watts, the star of a new film about the last years of the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, has said she hopes the new movie, which does not yet have a release date, will not upset Princes William and Harry.
"Is it going to open it all up again? We’re certainly not trying to upset the boys, though they’re men now," she told the Daily Mail referring to Princes William and Harry. "I hope they’re OK with it."

"Diana" - the film was originally title 'Caught in Flight' - focuses not he last two years of the Princesses life, and, in particular, her affair with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan. In many ways they were the most 'showbiz' years of her life, as, freed from royal protocol by her divorce to Charles, she went out of her way to promote herself in the service of her charitable endeavors, particularly the anti-landmine campaign.
