Letter to the Editor
TO THE AUSTRALIAN
Greg Craven's judgement is awry ('Fear, loathing, lost mojos', 26/9) when he describes HRH Prince Charles as 'eccentric'. No one has ever served as long as Prince of Wales and no one in that role has done more for the public good.
He has wisely promoted religious unity, beauty in architecture and the protection of ecological systems (as especially documented in his book 'Harmony').
His contribution to charities has been immense. His loyalty to Her Majesty the Queen has been exemplary.
No 'directly elected president' in Australia would be able to match that achievement and the dignity with which the Prince has carried out his formidable range of duties.
