180px-Badge_of_the_Prince_of_Wales.svg.pngThis is my final post on the subject of Wales for a period, three in two days is, I think, enough. However I was indignant to discover one Charles Windsor has claimed personal ownership of the three feathers than adorn the shirts of all sporting teams in Wales and is seeking to clamp down on their use. I am in agreement with the former South Wales Borderers soldier, who after receiving a letter from the agents of the said Charles Windsor said “Prince Charles has inherited the symbol. It’s more than 600 years old and he’s allowed to use it by the people of Wales, not the other way around.” I now await my own letter requiring the removal of the image from this blog. For the record, the last true Prince of Wales, Llywelyn ap Gruffydd died in 1282 in battle.
