Prince Charles on 60 Minutes Tonight
“What I’ve tried to do is to put my money where my mouth is as much as I can. … by actually creating models on the ground," he says, gesturing to the buildings of Poundbury, a village he has developed that is built of native or recycled materials where people of all income levels live side by side.
Poundbury is just one project of dozens the prince oversees in his many functions that also include being a philanthropist, ambassador, an advocate for minorities and the underprivileged, as well as a spokesman — indeed, a symbol — of tradition. It all comes with the territory says Prince Charles, a duty to his country that he describes for Kroft: “I would list it as worrying about this country and its inhabitants. That’s my particular duty. And I find myself born into this particular position. I am determined to make the most of it.”

Hello! What a lovely site. I am thinking of attending the meeting for Realtors on Growth in and aroiund Charleston and considering heckling lifetime Mayor Joe Riley. I am wondering what notables - Price Charles would be fine - have said about the human scaled city of Charleston. I would like to use that quote and then ask what the prince would think today after a 4 year proliferation of high-rise luxury condo complexes choking out the city's distinctive light of day. Meanwhile the crime statistics are cooked and the streets are potholed and someone is getting very rich as they destroy this town. Does anyone know of any? This distinguished group could just create them right now! Oh; I am a Realtor and a renovator of houses. Wendy
