Prince Charles thought he was “living dangerously” when he admitted to adultery in a TV interview in 1994, a letter has revealed.

Charles admitted to being unfaithful to Princess Diana with Camilla, who is now the Duchess of Cornwall, in an interview with Jonathan Dimbleby, two years after the couple had separated.

In a letter which is being sold at auction next week in Derby, he thanked a friend for writing to him after she had seen the programme.

He wrote: “I was enormously grateful for your very kind letter following that television programme the other day. I suspect it was what is called ‘living dangerously’, but it seems difficult to avoid nowadays! Anyway, I’m glad you enjoyed it and managed to remain fully awake for two and a half hours!”

Metro selects Hitachi Rail to build its next-generation rail car

Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld informed board members of the decision in a letter, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post.

Terms of the contract have not been finalized, and Metro declined to comment further because the two sides are in negotiations.

“The 8000-series rail car procurement process remains active, and we are unable to comment at this stage of the process,” Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said. “We are excited to share information with Metro riders as soon as a contract is awarded.”

Metro plans to order 256 cars, with an option to purchase up to 800. The transit agency told bidders that it will incentivize the building of a local assembly plant for the project, which could potentially last beyond the transit agency’s contract and become a source of new rail cars and jobs for years.

Hitachi Global is a more than 100-year-old Japan-based corporation

Fewer festive discounts on automobiles this year

Chennai: With the festival season just round the corner, car companies are offering between Rs 25,000-Rs 75,000 in cash and other benefits on mass market cars and SUVs. However car dealers and car marketers say the discounts are 10%-20% lower (depending on the model and market) than last festival season. Also the benefit packages are higher on small cars and sedans whereas best-selling and/or just-launched SUVs are not offering any cash benefits at all.
Car dealers say the reason for the lower discounts is because of lower stock build up this year.
M&M dealer Nikunj Sanghi of JS 4Wheel Motor said that the packages this time round are lower because demand was poor or yet to kick in. In 2019 there were many more unsold cars waiting in dealerships. “Last year, the industry was making a transition from BS4 to BS6 and discounts were in line for liquidation of BS4

10 cars that cost the least over 5 years

It would be easy to put together a list of the cheapest cars of 2020 just based on the base MSRP. However, what about the cost of the car after you drive it off the dealer lot? We’ve put together a list of the cheapest new cars you can buy based on the total 5-year cost of ownership for the base model according to our friends at Kelley Blue Book. This ownership cost estimation goes beyond just the sticker price of the car and factors in things like depreciation, maintenance costs, and fuel economy.

At this moment, I think the cheapest new car you can buy in America is the Chevrolet Spark, which in its manual shift, LS trim level starts at $14,395. By U.S. market standards, it’s a hell of a deal. But I just drove a car that sells for about $10,000 less than that new, and in comparison to what you get with the Spark at more than three times the cost, this incredibly cheap little machine seems pretty damn amazing. The car is a Renault Kwid, and like it or not, I’m going to tell you about it.

Normally, you can’t find these in America. But recently I happened to be in a place where most of the normal automotive rules of America don’t always apply: Detroit, specifically at Munro & Associates, the company
