He has done something the Queen never ever did. Talked directly to the media and news people and expressed opinions - which he is entitled to have. The royals are in an odd position in that area. Politically speaking they aren't allowed to have them. Your opinion is based on this area.King Charles the idiot's reign.
HRH did express an opinion once that ended his public speaking. CBI meeting where he said that their is nothing wrong with the british workman, get your fingers out. Given what was going on in a number of countries at the time in many ways he was perfectly correct.
The Queen was a brilliant figure head and did a good job of it also obvious why the so called firm approach is needed. A different sort of politics.
I view the passing of the Queen in a slightly different way. The end of a UK era from where we have been to where we are now. I hope the trend ends with her. There has been a number of "interesting" changes during her reign that have indirectly had an effect on society. Just one eg - reported crime increasing and rather related to the increase in the number of people who could afford to have a land line. I wont go on. There are others.
It seems Charles will be downsizing some areas.
