Seeing the architectural feats of Britain was amazing, HRH has taste that is to contemporary for my liking.
Have you been to Poundbury? This awful manifesto should have been a warning to the good people of Dorchester. Accident of birth doesn't make you fit to be head of state and neither does it grant you taste in architecture.
