You can never go wrong when you listen to the spirit and the spirit speaks for many reasons, sometimes it can simply to test our faith, and sometimes something greater than we can comprehend and in the Lord's due time. Bless you Alex, for listening to the still small voice and obeying. You are a faithful and choice brother. Your story started my day off great. Bless You!

The inspiration does not have to be for Prince Charles. It may be for someone who heard the discussion that was taught. No doubt in my mind that someone was or will be touched by that message.

Red Corvette,

Actually several leaders and dignitaries of this world (both today and in the past) have read the Book of Mormon. I know that a sitting U.S. president has read it (with good things to say) and several other leaders. Many people don't convert to the church but still have read it with favor (some of which even believed it contained truthful accounts while not converting). It may not mean anything to you or other critics but it means something to us and that isn't a bad thing.

LDS members are happy to share beliefs and what is believed to be good. I would expect nothing less from all my fellow human beings. If a book inspired you to help others and have faith in what has proven good in your life- why would you not share it with others? Why doubt whether the man will read it? Is he above reading it? He is as human and curious or not curious as everyone else. If he likes its message, great. If not, at least he had the opportunity to choose for himself what he thinks.

Isn't sharing good things great? I think so.


Way to go, Alex! I seem to recall another young man telling a king about the Gospel. Almost an entire nation was converted. The Spirit whispered and you listened and acted. Whatever happens now, you've chosen well.

I'm sure Prince Charles has probably read The Book of Mormon before.

The Osmonds Mother, Olive, gave a Book Of Mormon to Queen Elizabeth, (Charles mother) in the 1970's at a Royal Command Performance in London. So thats now 2 in the Royal Family who have one now. Lets hope they do read it.

Excuse me. I was wondering if anyone could provide a link to the footage of Alex Boye teaching the "first discussion" on national television in England. That really must be something to see. I searched for it on YouTube and could not find a single thing. Anyone have a link? It must be someplace seeing as this would be such a unique event. Anyone? Also could anyone help me find any article whatsoever dealing with this in the British press? There must be at least one. I searched and could not find a thing. Can anyone help? Anyone?

Well, my best guess is that this event probably happened about 1992, or even earlier. So I would be surprised if it would be easy to find more information on.

Brigham Young provided a copy of the Book of Mormon as a gift to Queen Victoria, but if I remember right, he wasn't able to present it directly to her Majesty.
