Charles Philip Arthur George


From AP: Prince Charles, Camilla wrap up US tour.

Britain's Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, began wrapping up their official visit to the United States with a visit to a school near here after a giddy social weekend. ...

After touring the school and chatting with students, Charles and Camilla will be ushered to the San Francisco Ferry Building where the prince will give a speech on the environment.

From Mark Steyn: Confrontation is a good thing.

According to The Sunday Telegraph, on this week's whirlwind tour of the Great Satan, the Prince of Wales "will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam…because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11". His Royal Highness apparently finds the Bush approach to Islam "too confrontational". ...

It's true that Mr Bush does not have the Prince's bulging Rolodex of bin Laden siblings and doesn't seem to get the same kick out of climbing into the old Lawrence-of-Arabia get-up for dinner with them: for His Highness, the excitement is in tents. But Bush has liberated 50 million Muslims from tyrannous regimes in Afghanistan and Iraq and, if he was in the mood to be really confrontational, he'd tell Charles to stick it up his djellaba.
