An extraordinary collection of correspondence from the man who would be King. Prince Charles penchant for writing to politicians to voice his concerns over the horrors of contemporary architecture and threats to the environment is well known. Now, thanks to one of the most extraordinary leaks of modern times, this book reveals the hitherto unknown and remarkably wide range of Charless communications, from his attempt to get a Coronation Street wedding moved to avoid a clash with his own televised nuptials to his advice for Tracy Emin on giving up the adolescent fad that is modern art (Get up and make that bed!).Spanning over forty years, from the Princes investiture in 1969 to the present day, these letters provide a fascinating glimpse into the mind of the man who would be King. They reveal someone who is much more in touch with the modern world than people might think, and whose keen sense of duty has given him the firm conviction that, hang it all, something of some sort needs to be done . . .
