A Stakeholder's Guide to The Prince of Wales

Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, has published an annual review.

The Annual Review is intended to give an overview of The Prince's official and charitable activities, and to provide information about his income and expenditure for the year to 31st March 2004.
The 'mission statement' of Prince Charles plc. is defined something like
While there is no established constitutional role for the heir to the throne, the Prince of Wales seeks to do all he can to use his unique position to make a difference for the better in the United Kingdom and internationally.
"For the past 15 years I have been entirely motivated by a desperate desire to put the 'Great' back in Great Britain. Everything I have tried to do - all the projects, speeches, schemes etc. - have been with this end in mind."
He apparently manages to spend 4,237,000 on tax and personal expenditure (not charitable or costs incurred in supporting the Queen) in a year, though the report states that the larger part of this sum is the tax. Makes interesting reading.
