Here, we see the Prince of Wales at the Boy Scouts’ World Jamboree. Somehow, I never really imagined the Prince of Wales, the future briefly-reigning King Edward VIII and, subsequently, the frivolous Duke of Windsor, at a Boy Scouts’ meeting, let alone a “Jamboree,” or even being remotely aware that Boy Scouts existed. Perhaps he enjoyed the uniforms and the opportunity to earn badges. The Royal Family has always had a weakness for badges.
It’s just plain odd. The text tries to justify this.
The back of the card reads:
THE PRINCE OF WALES AT THE BOY SCOUTS’ WORLD JAMBOREE
*Here, I feel it’s only right to point out that I don’t care for the Duke of Windsor as a person. As an historical figure, yes, I think he's interesting, but otherwise view him as loathesome. Of course, I never knew him and base it solely on what I know historically. However, I do know that he caused a lot of trouble and grief for his family and his nation and find him rather a detestable figure—if not entirely interesting for just those very reasons. True, most people don’t have strong feelings for deceased former monarchs, but since I spend so much of my life surrounded by these personalities, it’s inevitable that I should develop opinions. I suppose if I judge him too harshly...well, that’s too bad.
