“People of loving service are rare in any walk of life. Leaders of loving service are still rarer”

I believe that King Charles will indeed be a radically reforming King, acting on his first spoken part of the ceremony, that he has come to “serve, not to be served.” These are my thoughts on what he and Queen Camilla will focus on – I share these not with any great insight, rather based on King Charles’ record as Prince:

In no particular order:

Reform of The Monarchy – slimming it down, ensuring it more than pays for itself always, and continuing its modernisation

Climate Change – Action over talk

Women, LGBTQ+ and minority groups having equal hope, respect and opportunities in society

The Empire – Apologising for past wrongs and seeking reconciliations

The Commonwealth – Giving countries the choice of staying or leaving in an amicable way

Indigenous Peoples – Recognising their value, importance and contributions from the past and in the future

Young people – Helping them find and take their place in the world – in particular, the importance of mental wellbeing

Having the honour of being The Business Ambassador for The Prince’s Trust since 2006, I have discovered that many people don’t realise that the charity relies totally on donations in money, expertise and time – it receives no money from the monarchy.

If any of you as leaders and companies would like to support The Trust, please email me – we are particularly looking for companies to host workshops for young people, facilitators to deliver those workshops and companies to give opportunities to young people who are facing big challenges in their lives.

With my love and best wishes to you all
