I do maintain that the fanny pack is the rest of the world trying to steal our sporran. And I look great in a kilt.
You should know better than to call it a fanny pack, that's considered rude.
Sir Terry is totally Ankh Morpork aristocracy he was far above those who got titles for landing grabbing, slept with the monarch, fought and schemes for the monarch etc. We do tend here to call everyone with a title an aristocrat, it's more of a class thing than a technicality. It's not usually done with respect apart from a few special people.
Charles is actually a warm man who feels more than most but has never been allowed to show emotions. His uncle Lord Mountbatten was a tyrant, look up what he did in India, Phillip was no better. If you meet Charles in a small group he doesn't appear the same as he does on big occasions. I was at RAF Cranwell the same time as him for a few months. He's done a tremendous amount of charity work, the Prince's Trust is fantastic, I say work because has really thrown himself into many causes. I like him, it seems that his approval ratings have gone up here as people realise he's more than they thought.
