Prince Charles has not been without his controversies over the years – and he is still renowned for his often outspoken commentary on any number of subjects. But as he celebrates his 70th birthday this week, we find a future king who is as happy and productive as ever. As well as looking back over some of the major events in his life, we highlight his role in the Duchy of Cornwall, sharing some of the recipes created from products sourced in the large private estate he oversees. I hope you enjoy them, and indeed the whole magazine!

“Cancel Christmas, I’ve got no room!” Can you relate? Fear not, Sue Hayward applies her practical knowledge to the problem. She will even help you make a few pounds as you shed all those un-needed possessions. Just in time to buy and receive a fresh batch (hopefully more useful!).
The Remembrance theme continues with a poignant story of a box of WWI mementoes found in a secret compartment under a stair carpet. Plus there’s family fun in The Invisible Dog and What Jack Heard. Also a head of steam is building up for Annie in The Daisy Chain Line, our Christmassy serial about a couple who own a heritage railway…
