Prince Charles is a prime example of why royalty in-breeding is a bad idea.

There is no doubt that he is eccentric and I wonder what sort of king he will make.

But on the other hand, he was successful in stopping an appalling bit of modern architecure being inflicted on a barracks originally built by Wren which he did by getting on the phone to the Qatari royal family who were backing it. See http://www.nybooks.com/blogs/nyrblog/2010/jul/23/deconstructing-prince-charles/ for more detail. Anyone who does anything to stop modern architecture must have some good points.

cac: Agree with you on the architectural points. There are some upsides to being a backward looking anachronism. OTOH, still waiting for Elizabeth to name William as her heir.
