I read in another forum that K. Charles could not attend K. Constantine's funeral (nor the Margrave of Baden's), both closely related, because his first time outside the UK should be for an official visit.
Is this true ?
Found it odd .
Sounds like a really feeble excuse. State visits and private visits are two entirely different things and should never be confused.
I strongly suspect that the real reason is that King Charles is simply following the late Queen's example in this and in other things. He is not going to be the innovator many people think he is going to be. He is 74 and as conservative as his mother. After all, he never voluntarily attended funerals taking place abroad all the time he was Prince of Wales except when asked to be his mother's representative at such an occasion. He's not going to start now and it looks as if the new Prince of Wales will continue to follow his parent's example in this respect.
