That's not what he said….
Prince Charles’ beliefs on class standing are about as ancient as his royal lineage, say his critics. Servants should not aim above their station, according to the heir to the throne…
Here’s what he actually wrote:
“People think they can all be pop stars, high court judges, brilliant TV personalities or infinitely more competent heads of state without ever putting in the necessary work or having natural ability,”.
“Without ever putting the necessary work…” Being born into a high class is not “necessary work.” If Charles wrote that servants shouldn’t get above their station or that people’s place in society should be determined by the circumstance of birth he would be wrong. What he wrote is that work and talent should determine people’s place and he is right.
Nice to see that America’s not the only country with a lunatic liberal press.
