Bauer argues that the monarch attracted flamboyant and controversial personalities.
“These were people he shouldn’t have been with, much less take money from them,” he said.

“There will be more and more stories of him taking money under suspicious circumstances.”
When asked where he got the information from, Bauer replied that he traced the prince’s money back to the late 1990s.

“All this, of course, is on the back, you remember the story just a couple of months ago, about a million euros that they gave him in a suitcase in 500 euro bills, the guy clearly has no judgment.
“In this case, it’s even worse because the press reports that haven’t been refuted are that people told Charles, for heaven’s sake, don’t take money from the bin Ladens, and he acted dumb and stupid.
“He just causes so much harm to the royal family month after month.”
Sir Ian Cheshire, chairman of the Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation, stated this. Sunday Times that the donation was agreed “in its entirety” by the organization’s five trustees.
“Sheikh Bakr bin Laden’s donation in 2013 was carefully considered by the PWCF trustees at the time. Due diligence was carried out with information obtained from a wide range of sources, including the government. The decision to accept a donation was made entirely by the trustees. Any attempt to suggest otherwise is misleading and untrue,” Chesire told the newspaper.
A spokeswoman for Clarence House told the publication that the charity “assured us that a thorough review was undertaken in accepting this donation. The decision to accept was made only by the trustees of the charity, and any attempt to characterize it otherwise is false.”
