HRH Prince Charles Edward Lately Seen

The Prince Remains Unmoved in Derby

‘Tis good to report that the Prince was neither eventually unseated or removed in Derby from the excellent location he has on Derby’s Cathedral Square – looking south but with his horse heading north.

Two other Princely images have lately come to eye at the 14th century Sheep Heid Inn at Duddingston and at Glenfinnan which perhaps do less justice to the Prince, as depicted below. It is surely time for the National Trust for Scotland to contemplate sprucing him up atop his column on the shore where he first raised the standard we are proud to fly on the battle bing in Prestonpans these days.

The Sheep Heid Inn at Duddingston, to which the Prince and his party adjourned from their Council meeting at the Cottage to take luncheon as their discussions continued, will see the Prince’s 1745 Council meeting fully re-enacted including that luncheon – on precisely its 263rd anniversary, September 19th. The Agenda was whether to attack Cope as he lay camped at Prestonpans and if so, how and when.

  1. Covered in shame, the statue at Glenfinnan is NOT of the Prince at all but an Unknown Highland Chief …. that page at the Battle website has now been amended …
