Princes, like Popes on certain occasions, are meant to be infallible: they never make mistakes but are only 'badly advised'. This goes some way to explaining the high turnover of private secretaries, directors of the Prince's Institute, etc. So who claims credit for coming up with the idea for the competition to design mobile telephone masts for the Orange network, launched by the Prince of Wales in the full splendour of St James's Palace last week? I know the public is meant to have a short memory, but wasn't the mobile phone, an easily intercepted device, the reason for salacious interest in the Dianagate Tapes and the painfully embarrassing exchanges on the Camillagate Tapes? Judging will take place so that the competition winners can be announced more or less simultaneously with the fanfare of publicity that is planned to surround the Prince's 50th birthday, on 14 November, when Camilla is relaunched on to the public stage at a huge party to celebrate the event. Peachy.
