The Prince and the Putin

I was listening to the news tonight and discussion over Prince Charles' comments comparing Putin to Hitler.  Now I'm not going to get into the Hitler comment, but I can see the parallels Prince Charles is seeing.  More interesting to me is that conventional wisdom is that the Prince should not actually comment on anything as he will be a future Monarch and is not an elected leader.  I have to say, personally I don't have any problem with Prince Charles or any member of the royal family making comment.    My main reasoning for this is that he has spent a lifetime preparing to lead and he is making informed comment on what he is observing.  I don't see the issue here.  

Putin is clearly dangerous, the question is, what are we going to do about it.....
