Former Prime Minister Sir John Major supported Prince Charles' policy interventions, BBC documentary revealed.
I think it is encouraging that the Prince of Wales is entirely free from his unique perspective to write to ministers or the prime minister in a way that is invariably intended to be helpful, and I think to cut that off, or to make sure those letters are much more bland than they otherwise might be, would be a loss.
The BBC documentary, The Royal Activist, revealed how Prince Charles tried to persuade Tony Blair's government to expand grammar schools in one of his bids to change the government's policies.
