The Prince of Wales says he believes he has been placed on Earth as future King ‘for a purpose’ – to save the world.
Giving a fascinating insight into his view of his inherited wealth and influence, he said: ‘I can only somehow imagine that I find myself being born into this position for a purpose.
‘I don’t want my grandchildren or yours to come along and say to me, “Why the hell didn’t you come and do something about this? You knew what the problem was”. That is what motivates me.
‘I wanted to express something in the outer world that I feel inside… We seem to have lost that understanding of the whole of nature and the universe as a living entity.’
And I thought he’d just been placed on this goodly Earth to ponce off the tax-payer, produce mediocre watercolours, wear a double-breasted jacket and desire to be a tampon. Not exactly Henry V at Agincourt territory is it?
His impassioned comments come during a film about his belief that unbridled commerce has led to the destruction of farmland and countryside.
The documentary, called Harmony, is due to be aired on the U.S. network NBC in November to coincide with the launch of a book of the same name by the prince.
I honestly couldn’t make this up. Personally I’ll be waiting for the 3D IMAX version. God almighty that sounds like it shall make “An Unconvenient Truth” look fun. And “unbridled commerce”? Oh, Jebus wept blood! It’s all those grubby little Northern industrialists making stuff in Dark Satanic Mills in Manchester is it not? Well, Chuckles we are not serfs any more. We don’t tug our forelocks to you and are very grateful for a jar of “Duchy Originals” chutney of a Christmastide. It’s fucking easy pal to despise commerce and industry when you own half of Cornwall and get money off the civil list to spend on organic jam and double-breasted jackets.
But the Prince has previously come under fire for hypocrisy over his eco-values.
Last year he commandeered a jet belonging to the Queen’s Flight to attend the Copenhagen climate change summit, generating an estimated 6.4 tons of carbon dioxide – 5.2 tons more than if he had used a commercial plane.
But you see Charles believes in the divine right of kings. He is on a mission from God just like the Blues Brothers or something. If you and me jet out to Majorca or Florida we are evil and getting above our station but Charles is not one of us. He is an agent of God or what the Russians would call a holy fool and what this blogger would call an epically well-chiselled twatter. We have had a King Charles who believed in the divine right of kings before. It didn’t work out well. And I swear on Maxwell’s Equations that if this profound cunt ever takes the throne I will be more than happy to swing the axe. It would be a mercy, really.
Critics condemned his words as ‘delusional’.
Graham Smith, of the anti-monarchy group Republic, said: ‘He is under the impression he has been sent to save the world and deliver us from our sins. It’s quite delusional.
I think Mr Smith demonstrates another great British tradition – understatement. It is in truth not “quite delusional” it is three stops from Dagenham. It is insane. What does Chuckles think he is? Some form of Avatar of Krishna? He certainly don’t look it. He looks like a thick upper class twat in a double-breasted jacket. Christ almighty he really doesn’t look like Neo from the Matrix trilogy does he! I’m kinda reminded of David Icke who believed himself the re-incarnation of Buddha, Socrates and Christ and was put on this planet to save it from reptilian aliens whilst wearing a turquoise shell-suit. Well as some wag put it at the time, “Icke [a former goal-keeper] saved fuck-all for Coventry City”. If I want a hero I want Clint Eastwood in a poncho or Bruce Willis in a dirty vest or Jackie Chan twatting people with a step ladder. If I’m on a budget I could go as low as Jean-Claude Van Damme but that would be pushing things.
‘He will have to be impartial and keep his mouth shut when he’s king. If he really believes this is his mission and he disagrees with Government in future, he risks plunging us into a constitutional crisis.’
Except he won’t. He can’t. He believes. He is absolutely not going to shut-up, live in a palace, kill critters up at Balmoral and open the odd factory and say, “So you’re an electrician, what do you do?” to the proles. He is a dyed in the wool cunt. He ain’t about to change. Because he knows he is right.
Senior royal aides denied the prince was attempting to mould his public image and pave the way to ensure a positive legacy.
They stressed Charles also cared passionately about his other royal duties, such as defence.
One said: ‘In private he has dismissed talk of legacies – that’s not for him to say because it’s for others to judge. But hopefully his charities will carry on for many years to come.
‘He has said there is a reason why he’s in a position to raise these issues – that there is some higher power. But there is more to his role than just green problems.
‘It’s true that outside royal duties, the environment is the thing he cares most passionately about.’
In a trailer to the film, the prince spoke passionately about his decades-long quest for what he described in a statement as ‘a sacred duty of stewardship of the natural order of things’.
Fucking Hell! The natural order of things. Wow!
Read the whole thing here. It is awesome. It is exhibition Chuckles. It is in the context of this century (or the 20th, 19th, 18th…) breath-taking. Charles will have a legacy. It will be the British Federal Republic. I am not a republican but there is no fucking way I shall put up with that utter cunt on the throne.
I have made Charles out here to be a risible figure. I have done that because mockery is remarkably effective against such arses but make no mistake – the man is also evil. He is against everything of The Enlightenment. He would be a medieval despot if he could get away with it (and he will try) and he would reduce the nation that invented the industrial revolution to feudalism. That’s a legacy all right and whilst I have breath in my body or fingers on this keyboard he shall never be king.
He can fuck off to Dorset and live in a yurt and talk to organic vegetables for all I fucking care but king? I’d rather put my penis through a mangle than see that.
PS. Yes, there is a UK-based business that sells yurts via the internet. They claim to be the largest yurt supplier in the UK. Fair play to them but…
US readers: I’m beginning to think you had the right idea.
