Prince Charles' letters reveal he didn't take a back seat in fundraising

Prince Charles’ letters, written to the former head of his American charity, revealed he meddled in fundraising activities.

According to the charity watchdog probe, the Prince of Wales was eyeing donations from wealthy donors, against the official assertions from Clarence House that he remained away from such decisions.

As Daily Mail reported, the 19 letters reveal that the prince showed great interest in the fundraising, and even looked into the matter on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.

In one of the letters, Prince Charles expressed dissatisfaction with the decision to hold a Clarence House dinner for the potential donors before they actually donated any money.

“I fear I was not amused as, of course, it was a total waste of my time!,” he reportedly wrote.

This came after the prince’s statements that his charities ‘operate independently of the Prince himself in relation to all decisions around fundraising’ adding that the trustees ‘are responsible for all operational and governance duties’.
