"We must rely rely on blind faith that Charles' birth justifies his succession without any quibble"

That is a fact Paul, his birth does "justify" his succession, that's how hereditary monarchy works, so we are using a particularly "given" value for "justify" here.
Surely as long as he actually remains powerless then expressing his opinions can't do any great harm unless people start making the intended to be private communications public.

Perhaps concentrating instead on ensuring that the laws are fixed to ensure that the royals have no special privileges (no more consent to legislation) with government would be a better use of time, nobody seems particularly keen on having an elected non executive head of state.
