The doting grandfather: Heartwarming picture shows Charles playing with young Prince Louis

Proudly laughing at his new grandson, Prince Louis, this is the image that shatters the belief Prince Charles is anything but a doting grandparent.

The never seen before photograph was featured last night in a fascinating BBC documentary marking the heir to the thrones 70th birthday next week.

Speaking about the moment he met Meghan, his mum Rowan said that her son "woke up with a cough" and wanted the day off from school before making the necklace for "the princess and the prince". Gavin has gone on to sell every single one of his 400 pasta necklaces, and has raised $8,000 Australian dollars, which is around £4000. The money went to research into stillborn deaths after Gavin's sister Clara died a few years before he was born. Speaking about the charity on his website, Gavin wrote: "I want to be like the Prince and Princess and support charities. I'd love to start my own charity in honour of my sister."

Taken in September in the gardens at Clarence House, the princes official London residence, it shows the Duchess of Cambridge, wearing a spotted blue dress, holding up little Louis, who was born in April, to see his grandfather.

What we learnt from Las Vegas was that one form of architecture could be a decorated shed, and we certainly got that with the National Gallery extension. Whether the decoration is appropriate or not is a question, in my opinion not.But the internal planning is neither classical nor modern, but one of the least controlled interior spaces I know by so-called Starchitects.Certainly no lesson had been learnt from either Aalto or Scharoun about how to plan large public buildings.It does not help to say that the public say the prefer traditional architecture “whatever that means”. For example on Open City weekend, all the best modern buildings have long queues or are booked out. Show people fine modern buildings, and they may prefer them.Prince Charles is less in touch with public perception of architecture than the opinions of his cronies and those who hang on in the hopes of picking up a nice project by the back door.

Prince Charles says he will not meddle in architecture once king

Well, there are clearly lots of issues here, but Prince Charles clearly understood the sensitive and historic context of an extension to the National Gallery, and the need for a humble extension rather than a statement piece.In a YouGov survey in 2009, 77% of respondees preferred traditional architecture over contemporary designs.Its interesting that the author only gives Richard Rogers viewpoint:RHSPs works have by-and-large been for large wealthy corporate clients, and so by only presenting this elitist viewpoint, the author of this article would appear to be dis-interested in the views of ordinary people.But then, if the author had presented a balanced view, it would have shown that, actually, Prince Charles is more in-touch with the public perception of architecture than many in the profession itself, and, in the inimitable words of The Fat Controller, “That would never do.”

The little prince, who would have been aged around five months at the time, reaches out and grabs his grandfathers hands with his fingers, leaving Charles chuckling with delight.

A second unseen image shows the Prince playing with the Duchess of Cornwalls grandchildren in a garden, swinging around a little girl thought to be Lola Parker Bowles, daughter of Camillas son, Tom.

King Charles III wont rule like the Queen

The prince, dressed in a beige suit, open-necked shirt and tasseled loafers, appears to be having as much fun as the giggling youngster.

If I sound like a republican, its because I grew up in half a terraced house with an outside toilet – but my working class parents worshipped the Royal family – they provided a beacon of stability, and a sign that Britain was returning to normal after the horrors of World War 2. Even though my dad was a staunch left-winger, he would not have disbanded the Royals.

The Prince of Wales has promised not to meddle as sovereign but he should take the chance to reform the monarchy

The Pidgin language is the widely spoken lingua franca of much of west and central Africa, a way of communicating meant to overcome the barriers of Africas many different dialects that first began in the late 17th and 18th centuries.

God don butter my bread said the Prince of Wales, making as much sense as usual. He was speaking on Wednesday in Nigeria and the translation from the Pidgin is simply God has blessed me. Next week, Prince Charles turns 70 still waiting to inherit the role for which his whole life has been a prelude. It has been an absurd way to treat a thoughtful man whose life has been less blessed than it looks.

The Prince of Wales said it was particularly special to be there after nearly 30 years, and that the only words to describe it were God don butter my bread, a term in Pidgin meaning God has blessed me. 

It has been, in some ways, a gilded one. No heart can bleed too long for someone cocooned in castles and palaces. Yet Charless mother has turned monarchy into a baroque prison. The Queen has done, as every pundit with nothing to say always says, a great job. She…

When the Prince of Wales was asked whether when he became king he would carry on making the same sort of public interventions for which is known, he sounded almost exasperated. No, he said. Im not that stupid.
