Two flaps in Britain involving Prince Charles:
First, he has commissioned a building in Poundbury, a fire station, lovely, now completed and reaping the sort of outrage from the modernists that you'd expect.
Second, he has intervened in a housing project designed by "Sir" Richard Rogers, ugly of course, and proposed instead a beautiful design by Quinlan Terry, and the modernists are going nuts. They resist his intervention in a project they want to ram down the throats of the public, and accuse him of being anti-democratic in his effort to block their tyranny in favor of something people will like!
Wish we had an equivalent to Prince Charles in America.
