One-time New York Times architecture critic Paul Goldberger seems to have been given an open brief to cover Tony Blair's 'Cool Britannia' now he has moved to the New Yorker magazine, edited by Tina Brown (Mrs Harold Evans, once tipped as Blair's first choice for British Ambassador in Washington). After writing an upbeat piece on Peter Mandelson and the Dome last month, Goldberger's latest brief is 'whatever happened to the Prince of Wales', which should make for an interesting expose and myriad revelations. It was Tina Brown who was responsible, a decade ago, for publishing stories in Vanity Fair about how the prince was 'pussy-whipped' by his wife, the late Diana, and the crumbling state of their marriage. No doubt the shenanigans at the Prince's Institute will loom large in what Goldberger writes. I gather it has stopped pretending that it can take on the whole design and development agenda, and will in future restrict its ambitions to housing, housing and more housing. Leon must be furious.
