Prince Charles expressed his “personal sorrow” over “slavery’s enduring impact” in a speech to Commonwealth leaders in Rwanda on Friday. "
“I want to acknowledge that the roots of our contemporary association run deep into the most painful period of our history,” the Prince of Wales said at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting opening ceremony in Kigali.
“I cannot describe the depths of my personal sorrow at the suffering of so many, as I continue to deepen my own understanding of slavery’s enduring impact,” said Charles, heir to the throne.
“If we are to forge a common future that benefits all our citizens, we too must find ways ― new ways ― to acknowledge our past,” he added. “Quite simply, this is a conversation whose time has come.”

He did have, once, Holly.
Yes but the quote was '' that Catherine was unlike her Mother-in-law''.... William no longer has a mother, and having died before William and Catherine were even an item.. Catherine has never had Diana as a Mother-in-law ...so saying she's a fine lady unlike her m-i-l makes no sense... because she's never had a M-I-L

True that, Holly, but in essence, while Diana is deceased it still does not rule her out as Catherine's mother in law. It simply means her mother in law passed before she ever met her. Such was the case with my Mom and my Dad's mother. However, who knows who he meant as he seems to despise everything about the Royals?

"Prince Charles is reportedly working to ‘rebrand’ the Royal Family in an effort to try and ensure its survival in the modern world, reported Express UK."

"Speaking about Charles’ ultimate role as the monarch once his mother, Queen Elizabeth’s, reign ends, royal commentator Shon Faye said that he would ‘reinvent’ the monarchy under his rule."

"The comments came as Faye talked to hosts Katie Nicholl and Erin Vanderhoof on the Vanity Fair podcast Dynasty."

Vanderhoof first said: “I think questions that were truly never asked of the Queen will be asked of Charles.”

Nicholl then added: “The affection towards the House of Windsor is principally down to people's respect for the Queen. Her steadfast commitment and devotion to her people and her ability to reinvent the monarchy over the decades, which has been crucial for its survival. So, the big question is, can Charles do the same?”

Faye then responded saying: “I think there will be an attempt to rebrand… Once Charles is king a lot of the old guard at the palaces will be, you know, he'll bring in his own people and he was a bit of a modernizer.”

She added: “I think they will continue to try and push for their own survival. The monarchy, particularly the Windsors, they will do anything to survive… that is ultimately what they will, they will change, if it means survival.”

Faye further shared: “I think they will try and adapt themselves to fit in as best as they can with the modern world and I think the media will allow them to do that.”

Is that his chosen hairstyle or does it just get mussed up with wind etc ??
Looks like he just fell outa bed.
Maybe some good hairspray would help,
no. that's how he wears his hair... always a mess... . His sister Racheal Johnson a well known Journalist and tv personality was once asked in an interview about why Boris keep his hair in such a mess, and she was astonished at the question.. she really didn't see it...

such a mess ...beyond my comprehension.:rolleyes:
yes and it's not just his hair, he's often as in the picture above photographed with dogs hair over his clothing.. or his shirt hanging out... and that's when he's addressing the nation.

In the mornings he's seen taking exercise in the park near where he lives.. and he looks like a clown crossed with a tramp.... He clearly doesn't care about his appearance

The Prince of Wales and Prime Minister Boris Johnson host a Commonwealth Leaders' Reception during the Cop26 summit at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow. Picture date: Tuesday November 2, 2021.

The PM and Prince Charles share a laugh at the Commonwealth Leaders' Reception in November last year, though their relationship is reportedly strained. (PA)

"Boris Johnson's relationship with the Prince of Wales deteriorated to such an extent that the prime minister struggled to praise Charles when asked to film a personal tribute to him, it has been claimed."

"According to the Times, the prime minister was asked in the autumn of 2020 to contribute to a planned eulogy to Charles in the event of his death."

"The newspaper claims that Johnson struggled to find anything positive to say about the heir to the throne and instead told aides that he did not like Charles and made jokes.
He apparently described Charles as the 'king of biscuits', in reference to his Duchy Organic brand and said he was worried Charles would take his recipe to the grave."

"The claims come amid a growing number of reports that the two men do not see eye to eye.
The relationship between the pair is said to have deteriorated after a trip to Scotland in which the prime minister was branded 'shambolic'."

"Johnson was invited to Prince Charles' Scottish home, Birkhall in Aberdeenshire. (Getty)
The prime minister travelled to Birkhall, Charles' home in the Scottish Highlands, at the end of the Queen's summer break in 2019."

"Sources have claimed the heir to the throne was less than impressed after Johnson arrived in a "shambolic state", and was "distracted" and “clearly not focused” on the meeting. According to the Mail on Sunday, Charles remained "Sphynx-like" throughout their meeting. However, he is believed to have come to the conclusion that the PM - who at that point had only been power for a few weeks - had shown "disrespectful" behaviour."
