Interesting. Thanks for posting. I know very little of Welsh history, but I always wonder how they must feel about Prince Charles being the Prince of Wales. Is it a kick in the balls or has everyone become resigned to their Windsor overlords?

Here's an interesting wiki about the history of the Prince of Wales title which has been granted to the heir apparent of the British throne since 1301. There is, of course, a long standing Welsh nationalist movement, and all connections to the British throne are frowned upon. Charles himself has little connection to Wales, the title being purely symbolic. His major landholdings are in Cornwall where he wears the title of 'Duke'. Charles is far and away the least popular member of the Royal Family, aside from his wife who is often referred to as "the Rottweiler". I have little doubt that, concerned as she is with the continued survival of the British monarchy, the Queen has devoted more than a little thought to whether there is a constitutional way of bypassing Charles in favor of one of his sons as the next King.
