Apparently: Charles has been successfully lobbying the government on policy for years. The Guardian have sought access to correspondence detailing some of his influence over the years. The Attorney general has seen fit to veto any access to the correspondence as it will compromise Charles's position of neutrality as king. Basically, we now know that Charles is over stepping the mark and seeking to influence government policy, only we are not allowed to know the specific details. http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/oct/16/attorney-general-blocks-prince-charles-letters What does all this say of our 'democracy'?
