In the run-up to his 70th birthday, Prince Charles has been enjoying an unusually benign period of press coverage, with a series of fluffy interviews highlighting everything from his popularity with his grandchildren (they call him Grandpa Wales, which is cute) to his culinary inventiveness (he devised a recipe for grouse moussaka, or 'groussaka', which is disgusting).

The overall impression is of a slightly eccentric but well-intentioned heir to the British throne, whose concern for the environment and sustainability is as prevalent as ever.
