Prince Charles Launches Web Site
Nov. 10, 1998
LONDON (AP) _ There's further proof that Britain's monarchy is modernizing: Prince Charles has launched his own Internet web site.
Spread across 354 pages, it contains biographical information about the heir to the throne, who turns 50 on Saturday. The page will be updated regularly with news and pictures, his office announced Tuesday.
The site is divided into sections covering Charles' life, his work and a forum highlighting issues of particular interest to Queen Elizabeth II's eldest son. His speeches and a schedule of upcoming appearances will also be included.
``This site provides us with a powerful way of getting across _ in an unfiltered way _ information about the prince,'' said Stephen Lamport, Charles' private secretary.
``We hope it will help people to understand the Prince of Wales' work,'' he said.
The new site is at www.princeofwales.gov.uk.
