Prince of Wales says he hopes UK will ‘stop bickering’ after Jubilee
The Prince of Wales has said that he hopes the UK does not return to “bickering” after the feeling of “togetherness” over the Platinum Jubilee weekend.
The comments were reported by guests at the Big Jubilee Lunch in The Oval, south London, where Charles and wife Camilla attended as part of the final day of celebrations to mark the Queen’s 70-year.
Sarah Friar, CEO of neighbourhood app Nextdoor, was among those to meet Charles when he sat opposite her at her table.
“He said at the end how great it was that everyone comes together this weekend,” she said.
Ms Friar, who lives close to San Francisco but is originally from Sion Mills in Co Tyrone, said that Charles commented: “When it comes to Monday are we going to go back to all the bickering again? Let’s hope we don’t do that.”
Ms Friar said it was “a wonderful thought” for all of us.
Gemma Snow, from the Eden Project, was sitting next to Charles and said he talked about “keeping that togetherness going”.
Prince Charles has been more politically outspoken than the Queen in the past, campaigning on issues such as climate change and architecture.
This tendency has however landed him in hot water at times, with campaigners expressing concern over letters sent to British government ministers and politicians over the years.

What a cheek, obviously he doesn’t understand what politics is
I don’t think he understands anything really.The man’s a total dimwit
this Charlie fella got a 2:2 in his MA, obviously with the money that was spent on his education he is well worth ignoring. #IndyWales #IndyRef2 #UnifiedIreland #abolishthemonarchy
Yes telling people to stop bickering. That’ll work.
Great to see such fine leadership awaits “us “ after mummy passes away.
The struggle for self-determination and freedom, the destruction of shackles and oppression the pursuit of which is described by many many philosophers as the ultimate in human endeavours: Bickering.
But what else can you expect from a man who has lived in obscene luxury his whole miserable life?
The Republic of Cymru, has a certain ring to it, doesn’t it?
RoC for short?
Yeah, RoC on!
Said the man who talks to plants. Do us all a favour and get lost in some isolate Scottish glen where you belong. #TheGreatPretender 🏴 #PrinceOfWalesNot 🇩🇪
Hey come on, we need to be partners with our Scottish cousins, we can’t go dumping unwanted Royalty in their glens, at the very least we could get fined and at the very worst it could start a diplomatic incident…..
He could step down from his office and see it dissolved. Don’t know what it’d do for the “bickering” but still…
Bicker ; argue about petty and trivial matters.
Nothing trivial about the Divided Kingdom, we’re quite serious about leaving
Nation Cymru, why are you reporting the puerile words of this intellectually challenged nonentity?
This dude is so out of touch with reality it is frightening. The contrast between the passion and emotion of the football and the mundane London pageantry was stunning. The Windsors are the ancien regime.
Expect a LOT MORE political meddling and disdain for anything that they cannot comprehend when the Queen passes.
Remember what happened to one of your namesakes Charles, when he tried to interfere with politics.
Did he add any further explanation at all? Or is he really saying that the UK is at it’s best when people on top get 4 days of champagne and poor people’s complaints drop off the news?
Queen Elizabeth is a remarkable individual to be respected, but I can see why “Queen Elizabeth the last” strikes a chord.
This is a revealing insight into the mind of this Prince. Anyone who “complains” about the cost of living crisis or expresses the desire for self-sovereignty, is deemed to be “bickering”. This reveals just how out of touch, privileged and entitled the so-called “modern” royals really are. It seems that unlike his mother, this man may not have the good sense to avoid meddling in politics. William and Kate were also said to have met with senior politicians regarding the Scottish independence referendum. This does not bode well for the future. Charles should be aware that his namesakes also chose… Read more »
I hadn’t even noticed this “jubilee” nonsense was going on. Probably for the best as it would likely not have made me LESS inclined to “bicker” about anything.
Oh well, I’m sure the serfs will become more compliant once you ascend to god-king status Carlo… 🤣
On the bright side, this pillock will not be synonymous with our country. He never was our prince except in the minds of them over there but it’ll be good when they finally stop claiming it
It may well be worth Regent Charles focusing closser to the family home on ‘ bikering ‘ issues.
Bloody bickering..more like just sit down and do as your told
