Ever since he became self aware Prince Charles has struggled to find something to give him that sense of relevance that he craved. Mummy was queen, Dada was consort, and young Chilla had little to do other than navel gazing.
For some time back in the 60s and 70s, he took an interest, or at least a disdain for British architecture, becoming the constant critic of everything new; sort of an English version of Ellsworth Toohey. After becoming involved in alternative agriculture, he finally found something in common with his old dad; reincarnation.
Prince Phil decided that he would like to come back as a virus that would wipe out most of humanity, especially the lower classes. Chilla had more modest, or perhaps Modess aims to return as Camilla’s tampon, although given the ladies age, this would probably result in him being tossed into the bottom drawer and forgotten about.
Now he has a new cause, preventing global warming induced wars:
The Prince of Wales used his keynote speech at the 9th World Islamic Economic Forum in London this evening to warn of the political and economic dangers of climate change, and used Syria as a "terrifyingly graphic" example of the adverse effects of climate change on vulnerable populations.
Opening the forum, Prince Charles said drought, poor food security and rapid urbanisation contributed to the social tension that ignited into the 2011 uprising.
"The tragic conflict in Syria provides a terrifyingly graphic example, where a severe drought for the last seven years has decimated Syria's rural economy. Driving many farmers off their fields and into cities where, already, food was in short supply.
"This depletion of natural capital, inexplicably, little reported in the media, was a significant contributor to the social tension that exploded with such desperate results.”
So, apparently all of that stuff we believe about an authoritarian hereditary dictatorship being challenged by global jihad is wrong, and the real problem is GW.
The good news is, that since they stopped marrying their cousins, the latest generation of royals appears to be relatively normal.
