Prince Charles attacked for talking sense

Prince Charles rebuked for 'old fashioned' views

"People think they can all be pop stars, high court judges, brilliant TV personalities or infinitely more competent heads of state without ever putting in the necessary work or having natural ability,'' he wrote in a memo to an unnamed member of staff, after another employee inquired about promotion opportunities.

How controversial!

This sensible statement is characterized by the article as "Servants should not aim above their station, according to the heir to the throne."

Dismayingly, "Prince Charles was not even spared attack from the conservative British media."
