From BBC NEWS: Prince Charles wrote the comments during the 1997 Hong Kong handover.
In the journal he described Chinese diplomats at a ceremony as “appalling old waxworks”, the paper reported.
He also allegedly called a speech by then-Chinese president Jiang Zemin as propaganda, and slated the function as an “awful Soviet-style” performance.
The newspaper reported that the Prince wrote: “After my speech, the President detached himself from the group of appalling old waxworks who accompanied him and took his place at the lectern.
“He then gave a kind of “propaganda” speech which was loudly cheered by the bussed-in party faithful at the suitable moment in the text.”
