He’s keeping the traditions of his parents where he can, I feel he wants to do this for them. But he’s also bringing latest ways of the right way to run the country.”
“He’s been making modern changes here and there, but that’s a great thing. He won’t ever be a alternative for the Queen — they’re hard shoes to fill. But he’s doing it in his own way and persons are supportive of that.”
“It’s been a natural transition from what we’ve seen up to now,” Harrold added.
