Charles, I salute you
Credit where credit’s due, it was a great effort by the Prince of Wales in Afghanistan.
He could easily have met a few politicians in Kabul and shaken hands with British troops at the main base in Helmand province.
But no, he donned the full combat gear, jumped into a helicopter and flew off to the front line. He’s taken a lot of flak over the years but thankfully none on this trip! He was right to go and should be applauded for it.
