Lead should be longer[edit]

the article's lead is too short, i just added important things which he has done over the course of the years, which has been much publicised and its impact, you can't just remove it because you don't like it or better you feel its not important, discuss it first, all i wrote was important, i see no reason why it shouldn't be in the lead, discuss before making your unnecessary edit, i don't want to start another edit conflict with you, as an administrator, you should know better, perhaps we need another one to solve this discussion for us. (Monkelese (talk)

Call him what?!?[edit]

In today's world of 24-hour royal baby name news, it's hard to find any stupid thing particularly absurd, but November 1948 was a different time. During nameless Charles' hoopla, a reader from Chicago answered an Evening Times poll with such an unbelievably outlandish suggestion that it wound up back across the pond, via AP, where Ottawa Citizen readers shared a hearty "What will those crazy Yankees think up next?"

If you're sitting down with your monocle secured, get ready to hold on to your hat, because it's a doozie!

Is this still what we'd call notably ludicrous, or has that ship sailed? InedibleHulk (talk) 15:15, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

If not, maybe those three consensus "most likely" names could be useful, in a boring trivia way. I think they were the same three favourites for Charlotte's brother, sixty-odd years later. InedibleHulk (talk) 15:20, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

South west England[edit]

So this line in the first paragraph stuck out: "Known alternatively in South West England as Duke of Cornwall" Is this true in Somerset or Devon, or really just in Cornwall? It seems like a reactionary opposition to Cornish Nationalism to ascribe this opinion to the whole of the Southwest. Any thoughts? 73.11.81.111 (talk) 06:12, 22 June 2017 (UTC)

The largest bit of the Duchy of Cornwall is actually in Devon. MilborneOne (talk) 15:47, 22 June 2017 (UTC)
