William did get called out on the hunting weekend about the time he was going around as the great conservationist giving speeches and all that.

And who's picture went along with the William hunting in Spain article? Harry?

No mention of William's shooting tripS at balmoral and sandringham this fall.

^Keeping them well hidden, but you can bet your last penny he has been killing as usual.  With his clenched jaw and anger issues it probably gives him a huge kick to kill poor, innocent, defencless animals, birds whatever.  I bet he is a real so and so to live with, and I bet the staff are treated like dirt.  He really is a nasty piece of work, and it shows in his face these days too.

We risk a return to the dark ages of public executions warns Prince Charles as he condemns graphic images of murder by terror groups while addressing service for Iraqi Christians

The Prince of Wales said today he is worried the world may be returning to 'the dark ages of public executions' and urged people not to share gruesome films made by extremist groups like Islamic State.

Prince Charles also said that society has a 'duty of care' towards the families of those who are being executed on camera by terrorist groups in the Middle East in a speech to Iraqi Christians.

Islamic State has beheaded 27 people on film this year, including three Americans, two Britons and 22 Syrians, and the royal called their killers blasphemers.

Prince Charles spoke about the gruesome films at a Catholic church service in Acton, west London as he also spoke about the persecution of Christians worldwide.

He said: 'It seems to me that all faiths to some extent shine a light on the divine image in every human life.

'If that is so then surely to destroy another human being is to desecrate the image of the divine and to do so in the name of faith is nothing less than a blasphemy.

'We hear much at present about the duty of care,' he said.

'Then, ladies and gentlemen, I am bound to ask whether there is not a duty of care towards the victims of violence and their families who, like you, are daily distraught by the graphic transmission of violent images of their loved ones.'

The church service at at the Holy Family Catholic Church in Acton was for Chaldean Christians, a denomination of the Catholic Church that includes many Iraqis and Syrians.

The kindhearted Duchess! Camilla throws a 'magical' party for terminally ill children at Clarence House... and serves up the bangers and mash herself
The Duchess of Cornwall served up sausages and mash at a tea party for children with terminal illnesses today.

Camilla refused to stand on ceremony as she rolled up her sleeves and handed round plates to the youngsters, who were visiting her official London home, Clarence House.

Each year the Duchess invites 12 young people and their families from the Helen & Douglas House, of which she has been patron since 2007, to help her decorate the royal Christmas tree.

camilla is not a kind hearted person. No matter how she's spun. This sort of PR does not change my mind about her and I'm not going to "warm" to her. She got where she is by being very unkind and I have no respect for her. Charles PR would be better served keeping a low profile for her and not trying to promote her as the next Mother Teresa. She was not kind to Diana and saw to it the marriage would not work. Charles was a weak fool who could not let go of the nanny/mistress and she is living the good life with the bling and perks. But pushing her as this Saint is just nauseating.

Prince Charles spends $333,500 on Christmas gifts for staff

Prince Charles has proved he is no scrooge after splashing out a whopping $333,500 on luxury bespoke Christmas gifts for his staff and friends.

His Royal Kindness has reportedly bought 350 hand-crafted and personalised holdalls, costing approximately £500 - or $951AUD - each for his employees.

Prince Charles's Special Holiday Card Pays Tribute to His Son Harry

Clapping proudly at Prince Harry's great achievement of the year, Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, smile happily in the photo they chose for their holiday card.

They picked a shot that was taken at the opening ceremony of Harry's groundbreaking and successful Invictus Games, which allowed injured and wounded servicemen and women to compete against each other in a Paralympics-style contest.

It disgusts me to say this - but I fear it will go away.  The committee that is supposed to be looking into all this does not even have a chairperson anymore and nothing is moving forward even though the government promised to get to the bottom of it.  The Scotland Yard investigation is supposed to be ongoing but they have been saying that for years and there has been nothing.  The only people who get caught are either dead or entertainers from TV who they must feel they can throw out as expendables to shut the public up.

It is nauseating and people must put lots of pressure on Cameron and Parliament to thoroughly investigate the whole nauseating mess.  They need to stop protecting MP's and PC must answer questions about his relationship with Saville and what he knew.  But it won't happen unless pressure is applied to Cameron and the rest.

^It's too bad that Charles is so insistent on making a mess, one after another that the government has to distract itself from actual problems to sort out the mess that the Prince of Wales is yet again making. He needs to stop pushing people to accept his wife and he needs to get over trying to make people forget his wife.

The reinvention of Camilla: How a dash of charm and a LOT of charity work have turned the Duchess of Cornwall into one of Britain's favourite royals
Serving bangers and mash and smiling happily, the Duchess of Cornwall couldn't have looked more relaxed as she welcomed a group of terminally ill children to Clarence House for a Christmas party.

It was a far cry from the nervousness that characterised her first public appearance with Prince Charles, a photo opportunity outside the Ritz in January 1999.

Now, almost a decade after marrying Prince Charles in April 2005, Camilla is not only an essential part of the Royal Family, she is increasingly popular to boot.

The man is tearing down the monarchy to raise his mistress to new heights.

Charles probably had a hissy fit over the BBC then summoned in his PR minions in an "I'll show them" gesture of defiance and named Camilla a "popular royal" with the people.  Maybe someone needs to be a Regent for Charlie now to keep him under control. He is in la la land.

Hands up if you love Camilla! Duchess of Cornwall meets excited schoolchildren and reveals she's encouraging 'my step-grandson called George' to read

The Duchess of Cornwall has revealed that she regularly cuddles up with her grandchildren to tell them bedtime stories - and also wants to encourage 17-month-old Prince George to read.

Launching a creative writing contest with Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans yesterday, Camilla recalled how her own passion for reading and writing was inspired by her late father.

He, said the Duchess, would perch on the end of her bed at night telling 'fabulous' tales that would leave her imagination reeling.

Sandy, it is possible the kids do love her - not as in family love, but different.  I was one of those type of kids that loved older ladies- I don't know why, but I did and I still like them.  It's kind of funny really, then again I was raised by my grandmother for the first six years of life - lots of children spend lots of time with grandmothers nowadays as both parents work - hence their affinity for oldies.

Post by: Rebecca on January 22, 2015, 03:09:20 pm
^AnaBolena that is very true. My son always seems to form a closer bond with his teacher at school if she is older. I have no idea why that is, maybe children have some subconscious knowledge that older women are more interested in them; while often younger women are more interested in themselves. I don't know if that would be true with Camilla, but I do think that, in general, children frequently bond easier with older women.



Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: AnaBolena on January 22, 2015, 03:28:20 pm

I'm laughing at myself here.  I had an after school job for a couple of years and when the oldies came in for sliced meat I'd give them twice the meat than what they paid for. lol

It is unpredictable what each felt. But I doubt each knows oh she is their future Queen Consort and all the nuances of who she is about. She is an elderly woman coming to visit the class. There is really nothing wrong with that perception and she's not a teacher or principal so it is a one time thing for their classroom experience.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III

Sandy, it is possible the kids do love her - not as in family love, but different.  I was one of those type of kids that loved older ladies- I don't know why, but I did and I still like them.  It's kind of funny really, then again I was raised by my grandmother for the first six years of life - lots of children spend lots of time with grandmothers nowadays as both parents work - hence their affinity for oldies.

It is unusual based on one visit to small children to claim the visitor is "loved" by the children. It's not as if Camilla is their teacher or something and they will ever see her in person again.. This was a random visit. How can it be claimed that they loved Camilla? Or they can "love" older women they have seen for a relatively short time. Unless the children are all friends already with Camilla or related to her IMO how can they have this instant love for a stranger? Children are also warned not to get close to people they meet on the street. They can't instantly "love" an old woman they see walking past. That is not possible.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: AnaBolena on January 23, 2015, 06:36:12 pm
Sandy, I said I felt that as a kid.  Therefore why wouldn't other children love older people?  They often do.  It's not romantic love or anything like it.  It's like loving candy.  Understand?


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on January 24, 2015, 01:05:35 am
That's not the point I was making. Of course children can love older people. But it is IMO a big stretch for kids to "love" Camilla based on a short time with her. How can they bond with her in that short time. She is not their teacher. If she were their teacher it would be a different story. This is apples and oranges. Camilla visited the class she is not in the lives of these kids except for a brief visit where some got their photographs in the paper.  The children have their parents, grandparents, and other relatives that of course they "love." So if they "love" Camilla based on a very short time with her would they not have abandonment issues if they never see her again or she does not visit them. This is a stretch to say that they "love" Camilla after a short time with her. That is just press spin.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: AnaBolena on January 24, 2015, 04:46:20 pm
Sandy, forget the name Camilla and it might make sense.  People love chocolate - sweet things - all manner of things on first taste,  why can't a child love oldies?  Kids don't know about time per se, and they sure don't know anything about Camillas history - so all they would interpret is a loving elder lady.  Loving as in caring, warm, fun etc etc.  Kids are far kinder than adults.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on January 24, 2015, 07:00:27 pm
I would not use the word "love" maybe interested in or but "love" that is a stretch.  And that includes any celebrity. A child loves his or her relatives, friends and maybe teachers but a random celebrity that they only see one time (and no matter what age the celebrity) saying they "love" them (in every sense of the word love)  is a stretch. And this also applies to Kate. The kids can be interested but "loving" Kate is hyperbole IMO. Kate, Camilla, Sophie or anybody can be interesting to a child, some may be impressed some may quickly forget they met them. Kate, Sophie, Camilla etc will never be a permanent part of the child's life like a teacher. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

You mean they all adored her? How can that be determined? And young kids move on to the next excitement rather quickly. Some kids like to get out of class work and it is a break for them like getting a field trip or something. I think that's what they like the most when someone visits the classroom.

I would venture to say not all kids are excited by and adore royalty. I would not say all kids that get a visit by Kate, Camilla, Sophie, et al instantly adore them.

Not sure if this is elsewhere but extremely interesting and I gather from comments that questions are being asked and newspapers being approached.  The RF cannot really afford this to be everywhere, what with so much else coming out about them now.

Part of an article from another forum.

'I often send letters to the royal family i never say anything i dont believe is true in them,On the 20th of january i noticed police at the back and front of my house i went out to ask why they were there for they said im sorry we cant tell you, I got ready and left my property as soon as i locked my door a plain clothed police officer said can we go back in and chat please this is a sensitive matter, I agreed we went back in and i asked what is this all about?He said i believe youve sent some letters to the royal family? I said yes i have he said well i am sorry there is a member of the royal family visiting the area today witch means you cannot leave your property until 1 oclock, I was eventually allowed to leave my home at 1 oclock the police officer sat with me has a coffee and said in his 18 years of being in the police force he had never come across a case like this and it was very unique, But he was given orders by his boss to do this so he had too,What do you make of this?Im not happy that i was a prisioner in my own home just because ponce charlie was visiting nissan in washington im thinking of seeking legal advice,The royals are protected from us so called commoners so to speak but we arent from them its all wrong!!!

Various answers saying call the local newspapers, seek legal advice etc. Shows how scared and desperate the rf are, and also, more to the point, the fact that the letters sent to actually get read.'

AnaBolena - what a sweet and kind thing to do!
I agree - kids can be more responsive to an older woman and it is likely that they enjoyed time with Camilla - sometimes we use the word "love" in different meanings as in "I love Bradley Cooper" or "I love cheeseburgers" so perhaps this is how love was being used - they loved the visit just like one would "love" a nice co-worker or a great meal etc.

A lot of the antagonism people feel towards Camilla is about her past - that is understandable but not everyone is old enough to know that past so what they see is a fun older lady.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: Rebecca on January 27, 2015, 06:04:17 pm
^Agree, we often say 'love' when we just mean that we like something. I don't think that the statement 'the kids love her' was meant to be taken quite so literally as some have. I guess that is still a sensitive subject for many Di fans. But I think it is possible to like Camilla while also realizing that she behaved wrongly to Diana.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on January 27, 2015, 06:25:44 pm
It has nothing to do with "Di fans."  A famous person visiting a school does not become  an instant love object of the kids in every meaning of the word. I said I would say the same if it were Kate or Sophie.

^I said that most likely the statement that they 'love' her was probably just an exaggeration, no one would really think that they deeply love her as a result of spending time with her. I do think that those who dislike Camilla as a result of Di's treatment or for whatever other reason must be easily offended by statements like 'kids love her'. Not trying to attack or offend you at all, but you seem to be upset about it. I don't really think its that big of a deal....

Prince Charles laughs with Bollywood beauties at star-studded gala for British Asian Trust... as Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, sparkles in diamonds and velvet

with celebrities, Bollywood stars and X Factor judges at a gala dinner for the British Asian Trust tonight.
The Prince of Wales, 66, was dapper in black tie and a natty patterned pocket square while Camilla,  67, looked resplendent in a floor-length plum velvet gown lined with matching silk.
The royal pair hosted the event at the Banqueting House, Whitehall, along with singer Ella Henderson, Simon Cowell and Holly Valance, to raise money for the charity Charles founded in 2007.
During the evening, Prince Charles was also pictured talking to X Factor judge Louis Walsh and Chelsea footballer Cesc Fabregas.

Charles tells UK Muslims to abide by our values: Prince says if you come to live in Britain you must respect us

Prince Charles risked provoking a new political and religious storm yesterday when he said Muslims living in the UK should follow British values.

In a staunch defence of Britain's 'Christian standpoint,' he denounced the radicalisation of young Britons by Islamic fanatics and said they should show more respect to 'the values we hold dear'.

People who had 'come here, were born here or go to school here' should 'abide by our values,' he said. His comments were made as he started a six-day tour of the Middle East, seen as another stage in assuming more of the Queen's international duties.

He used his time in Jordan to speak out about the plight of Christians and meet refugees fleeing the war in Syria.

Today, however, saw Prince Charles see a very different side of the Middle East as he flew into Kuwait to be met by pair of adorable flower girls.

Charles, who is on a six-day tour to the Gulf states, was all smiles as they handed him a posy at the private Amiri Terminal alongside the Gulf state's Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf.

The diamond duchess! Camilla dazzles in intricate necklace studded with rubies at The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel premiere with a dapper Prince Charles

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, sparkled in a four-strand diamond necklace studded with rubies, at a London film premiere tonight.

The duchess cut a glamorous figure in the stunning jewellery that featured a link design similar to chainmail and came with matching drop earrings and a bracelet.

Compared with his wife, the Prince of Wales looked rather more low key in black tie enlivened by his signature silk pocket square

A new fan for Camilla! Duchess of Cornwall leaves London Fan Museum with shopping bags in hand... but not before inspecting new Waterloo exhibition
It might be one of London's smallest galleries but the Fan Museum in Greenwich does have a very good shop as the Duchess of Cornwall discovered today.

Camilla was making her fourth visit to the museum, which opened in 1991, when one of the pieces on sale in the attached boutique caught her eye.

Shopping, however, was not the reason for the Duchess' visit. Instead, she was there to inspect a new exhibition called Waterloo: Life and Times.

Camilla has that rather moist, dewy look going again. I suppose she's been having another round of the bee-sting treatments. She certainly has a lot of jewellery, much of it the Queen Mother's, though not that particular ruby necklace.

Charles has so many faults, but he deserves the respect due to any father from a son, to a Prince, to his subject, who William is. William is his father and grandmother's subject, just as Kate is. Fact is, Charles likely did warn William, but William's lack of respect for his father is disgusting.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: Miss Hathaway on March 05, 2015, 11:22:52 pm
I think William loves and respects his father.  I also think he knows his father has used him.  And I think William does not have the warm feelings toward Camilla that Bolland tried to make us think he did.  Charles also set a precedent within the Royal Family of ignoring the rules and ignoring the Monarch's wishes and doing what one wants despite setting the Monarchy on its ear.  So, it isn't to be wondered that William ignored rules and advice and went his own way in marriage, as he was following in his father's footsteps.   

Regardless of all that, I seriously don't believe that Carole would try to go against the Prince of Wales. She has no power, and she would not make an enemy of her future king.    If Charles insisted on seeing George, this would happen.  I think this story is a bunch of hooey.

Charles can see George anytime he wants. If  he shows up on the doorstep or calls  no way would he  be barred from seeing George.  If this article did originate from a "rep" of Charles then it's more about his whingeing when he really is not prevented from visiting George.

I really think that this story is a load of rubbish. Nobody knows, (apart from the people involved and staff and RPO's) who sees who and when. When they are at home we see nothing of the royals' private lives. On TRF it was said (by a guide at Clarence House) that when Charles and Camilla are in London George and his parents visit them each Sunday.

I don't believe that Charles wouldn't say something to Kate and William if he wanted to see more of George. He isn't that bashful, IMO. The royals do make appointments to see each other. He may go to KP occasionally, who knows.

Charles set to buy 123-room Cornish pile for £10million



Before party-loving aristocrat Jago Eliot was found dead in the bath at the age of 40, he feared his father the Earl of St Germans was putting his inheritance at risk by selling a small farm on their Port Eliot estate in Cornwall to buy a London townhouse for his new wife.

So Jago would be turning in his grave if he knew that his bohemian father Peregrine is negotiating with Prince Charles about selling him the 123-room house, where the annual Port Eliot arts festival is held, for a rumoured £10 million.

For it will mean Jago and his widow Bianca’s son Albert, ten, will inherit the 74-year-old Earl’s title but not the ancestral home his family has lived in since the 16th century.

The story about Charles not seeing enough of George is being churned by a number of journalists so must have originated somewhere.

William and Kate seem to be spending more time in Norfolk and it appears that Carole has also been spending time with them. Comments have been made that the Middleton's have been looking for a property nearby.


The housekeeper and gardener have also left to go back to Sandringham for reasons unknown.


Question is whether Carole is trying to muscle her way in or whether Kate is not coping well and needs her mother? RF probably don't want to rock the boat as they don't want another Diana on their hands but Charles is not a happy bunny. :bouncy: He never was a happy bunny was he? :easter-sly:

who knows if any of this is true.  Complaining to the tabs hardly seems like a good strategy if you are trying to see your grandson more often.  I wonder if there is more to this.  It definitely does seem the Middletons see more of W&K&G than the RF does.
  The whole thing at Christmas seemed very unfair to me - in that - they appeared to spend hardly any time with the Queen and PC.

Will certainly has his "issues" and he probably does play them out with his father.  Constantly punishing him perhaps. But mostly it seems Will just does not like the royal life.  Maybe he is like his father - still going through an awkward stage and he will calm down as he gets older.

Prince Charles purchasing another property for £10 million

Earl's first wife rages over £10m castle sale to Prince Charles (but his third wife says it's terrific!)
By SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE FOR THE DAILY MAIL
PUBLISHED: 00:51 GMT, 7 March 2015 | UPDATED: 01:37 GMT, 7 March 2015

The Earl of St Germans’ decision to sell his ancestral seat, Port Eliot House, to the Prince of Wales looks set to spark the mother of all family disputes.
As I reported yesterday, (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2982026/SEBASTIAN-SHAKESPEARE-Charles-set-buy-123-room-Cornish-pile-10million.html) the curmudgeonly 10th Earl, Peregrine, who has suffered recent bouts of ill health, is in negotiations to sell the historic castle to Prince Charles for £10 million.
But while the 75-year-old Earl’s third wife, writer Cathy Wilson, some 30 years his junior, hailed the deal as ‘a terrific turn up for the estate’, her sentiments are not necessarily shared by the rest of the family.

Further down   -   Just last year, Charles’s Duchy of Cornwall estate bought more than 800 acres of land at Port Eliot for £4.7 million. Ironically, it was Jago who had introduced Cathy to his father during a visit to Cornwall.

There was a lot more than just Camilla at work.

I get the impression that Charles (and Camilla too) does not feel he did anything wrong. He heaps the blame on his parents and Diana using his friends and relatives. Maybe that is what irks WIlliam. Charles to me is the one who is digging up the past in a negative way, having his buddies slam Diana. Junor writes one poison pen per year about her. And even his cousin badmouthed Diana just last year. Charles probably thinks he is misunderstood and he did nothing wrong. 

I do think that William and Harry catered to Charles for years and went above and beyond.  This "friends saying" articles show that Charles really has not changed. I think he is very angry over the BBC documentary. Or maybe WIlliam does not want to play happy families anymore with Camilla.

Why Charles is not focusing on the real issue: a reluctant heir to the heir stalling doing royal duties full-time is beyond me.

Unfortunately, because of death duties and other taxes sometimes these country houses and fine old estates have to be sold off. It's a great shame IMO, especially if the place has been with the same family for centuries.

 This family dispute among the much-married Earl's relatives doesn't really have anything to do with Charles, though. I believe Charles wants to establish the place as a hub for the arts, as previously posted.

William is to old to even be upset by his mother's death and it's not right that the monarchy end up adjusting for Kate all the time.


Harry's wife is immaterial to the succession as George and the new baby will both come before him. He is increasingly irrelevant - the Andrew and before him the Margaret of his generation.

Even if William did decide he didn't want to be King it isn't as simply as some people here seem to think. It will take legislation, in the UK and the other realms - and that won't be easy to get through. The other thing - it can't be done without William's consent and almost request and he can't do that until he is actually King as the monarch is the only person who has an actual constitutional role to play.

William may not like the idea of being King but he has accepted it. He showed this last week that he is able to operate at the required level, particularly without Kate and I think it may well be that he takes on more duties and overseas trips but that she basically stays at home, in much the same way as the Crown Princess of Japan is rarely seen (though for different reasons).

Neither The Queen nor Charles will allow another divorce after the fall out from the Diana years. Kate will be allowed to be a stay-at-home mother and much will be made of that fact. I remember reading a few years ago that she didn't want her children to be sent to boarding school, at least not until high school so instead of at 8 more likely at 13, if at all. She can then use that as an excuse to have to stay in one place and thus only do a few local engagements e.g. send George to the local school nearest to Anmer and she only does engagements in Norfolk during the school year with some away from home in the school holidays.

 exactly - William will be King there is no - zero - chance of anything else.  And given that neither Will nor Kate seem to want a full time role for Kate - she will spend the next 15 or so years working at her current pace and being the stay at home Mom.  It is clear Kate is not interested in any greater role than what she currently has and Will appears to like this situation too.

Will is doing a George V thing here - recall George V lived in one of the estate houses at Sandringham with his family emulating a normal middle class family life.

If any of this is true, I do think there's a real chance that if Harry makes a good match, William and Kate will be cut out and ordered to cooperate in prepping for a life in exile. William is to old to even be upset by his mother's death and it's not right that the monarchy end up adjusting for Kate all the time.


Harry's wife is immaterial to the succession as George and the new baby will both come before him. He is increasingly irrelevant - the Andrew and before him the Margaret of his generation.

Even if William did decide he didn't want to be King it isn't as simply as some people here seem to think. It will take legislation, in the UK and the other realms - and that won't be easy to get through. The other thing - it can't be done without William's consent and almost request and he can't do that until he is actually King as the monarch is the only person who has an actual constitutional role to play.

William may not like the idea of being King but he has accepted it. He showed this last week that he is able to operate at the required level, particularly without Kate and I think it may well be that he takes on more duties and overseas trips but that she basically stays at home, in much the same way as the Crown Princess of Japan is rarely seen (though for different reasons).

Neither The Queen nor Charles will allow another divorce after the fall out from the Diana years. Kate will be allowed to be a stay-at-home mother and much will be made of that fact. I remember reading a few years ago that she didn't want her children to be sent to boarding school, at least not until high school so instead of at 8 more likely at 13, if at all. She can then use that as an excuse to have to stay in one place and thus only do a few local engagements e.g. send George to the local school nearest to Anmer and she only does engagements in Norfolk during the school year with some away from home in the school holidays.



As second son, Harry will be given a title as will his wife and he is part of the scaled down monarchy plan.

I don't think the public would like a senior royal consort who stays home and stays with the kiddies. She does have help and other women manage to be great mothers and work. The average woman would shake their heads at Kate's excusing herself from work because she minds the kids all day. The woman does manage to leave George for vacations and shopping so why would leaving for work corrupt the tyke? And nothing really much would be sacrificed if she took a few hours each week and worked steadily.  This is not Japan and the Crown Princess was ill for a few years. Plus her daughter can't be ruler and the royal family there is less advanced as far as women's rights are concerned.

I think George wil go to boarding school. Realistically Wlliam and Kate can't sit back and watching aging Charles and the Queen take on the majority of the duties. It would look bad for the able bodied young couple and they will lose popularity heavily.

Charles can't divorce again since he would lose credibility. If William wanted a divorce he would have the precedent of Dad getting one. So it would be difficult for the Queen to refuse since she allowed Charles to divorce and also marry the other woman in his first marriage. She would have  credibility issues to since she already had three of her children being allowed to divorce.

if both BG and the new baby are  not legitimate heirs, then technically William doesn't have heirs and Harry is back at #3. and if William abdicates in favor of a nice, tax-payer funded life, then it will be Harry on the throne. but I don't thing he will abdicate. they'll need to find a way to get him off the succession line. simply because he's proven that he is good for nothing. especially since Harry - the younger and less relevant brother is working more than him - the future king.

I do think Harry is still #3 behind closed doors. The BRF would NEVER allow anyone but anyone of the line to succeed and I do think they're plotting on how to sweep William and Kate out of the royal family with a minimum of mess. They did it with Edward VIII and could easily do it again.

If any of this is true, I do think there's a real chance that if Harry makes a good match, William and Kate will be cut out and ordered to cooperate in prepping for a life in exile.

Kate not working, William not working, is like how Obama is failing to RUN the country.

over here, Obama is crucified on a daily basis for partying and golfing while the country is in a mess and the US taxpayer does not pay him to have fun, they pay him to run the country and protect our interests, something that Obama has failed to do. When our politicos don't do their job, they put a HUGE burden on the taxpayer to deal with the fallout, something we're not paid or trained to do.

William and Kate are paid to represent charities, something that the average person doesn't have the money from the exchequer to do. Or time since they have to make a living, which is getting harder. People are sick of public figures acting like private figures, it messes up the social dynamics. If Kate keeps this up, then I'm sure that like it or not there will be William removed whether PEOPLE magazine likes it or not. Kate will have to leave with him.

To sum it up, Kate wanted to marry someone to have them take care of her, but since normal men and titled aristos could see right through her, she aimed for a complete *fool* and often, lately, princes are complete morons.

Charles is on his own side. He became obligated to her when he named her publicly. IF he had always been on her side he would not have relegated her to mistress for years and instead chose her to be wife and the mother of his heirs.

I read Charles authorized biography. Nowhere did he say he was "prevented from" marrying her back then. He could not even have been bothered telling her to wait for him. I think though that he deemed her unsuitable. Otherwise he would have emulated his great uncle and fought to marry her back then.

Prince Charles opens up about love and life
By Max Foster, CNN
Updated 11:15 AM ET, Thu March 12, 2015

Quote
Watch "Spotlight: Charles and Camilla" Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET to get an inside look at the royal couple as they prepare for their joint visit to the U.S.

Aberdeenshire, Scotland (CNN)In an exclusive interview ahead of his U.S. tour -- and ahead of his 10-year wedding anniversary -- Prince Charles paid tribute to the "brilliant" way his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has taken on the "real, real challenge" of defining her public role.

"It's always marvelous to have somebody who, you know, you feel understands and wants to encourage. Although she certainly pokes fun if I get too serious about things. And all that helps," Prince Charles told CNN.

The couple first visited the U.S. together as newlyweds in 2005, and Camilla was confronted by hardcore Princess Diana fans with abusive placards. Polls at the time found that between 57% and 73% of Brits opposed Charles' new wife being known as queen. If you go back even further, to 1997, the year Diana died, an Ipsos MORI poll put it at 86%.

But there's been a change in sentiment since they married. A new poll conducted by Comres for CNN found that only 35% now oppose Camilla being known as queen. Nearly one in four said they liked her more now than they did 10 years ago.

Quote
This coincides with a change in palace strategy -- away from the aggressive spin machine of the 1990s to simply allowing Camilla to be herself. When she appears in public, she's either seen supporting her husband or promoting a set of causes she has a genuine connection with.

Post by: Kuei Fei on March 12, 2015, 09:41:07 pm
Thing is, Charles LET himself be obligated to Camilla, he LET Camilla put herself on his hands. He set the example and yes, kids do what their parents do. Kate did the same, she made herself William's responsibility and so William repeated the pattern by obligating himself to Kate out of warped loyalty, although William didn't owe her anything at all. William didn't HAVE to stand up for Kate and he made Charles' mistake by not making his mistress just DEAL with the press attention and coverage. If Charles had told Camilla to deal with it as a royal, William would have told Kate to deal with the press or get out of his life.

If he hadn't married Camilla, Kate wouldn't be there, I'm sure of it. Too bad Charles blew his chances of staying single and respected, or perhaps remarried a different well respected woman who didn't require a nonstop PR campaign. Then his son would be married to someone nice and living a productive life.
I've always believed this. Cammie was the worse person for upchuck to marry after Diana. Her presence has been a menace from the very beginning.

If Charles had just kept Camilla as a mistress or sent her on her way, Charles would have been able to credibly tell William to kiss Kate off. He would have sent the message that no man is obligated to marry anyone in a long term relationship and that he didn't owe a woman he wasn't married to anything at all. THEN William would have been more of a man and would have ended up putting Kate in her place a long time ago, telling Kate that if she didn't like the press coverage she could kiss off and move on in life. Then the deranged idea of history repeating itself would have never been on the table.

Post by: sandy on March 13, 2015, 12:44:03 am
Charles thought people would sympathize with him when he named Camilla as his married mistress back in 1994. It backfired. Big Time. APB did not want to be an outed cuckold so he immediately called for a divorce. Camilla's father complained to Charles. Charles became obligated and since then he could not have chosen someone more suitable and acceptable. He was stuck with her. I think they lead separate lives but Charles has to push this woman to try to validate his bad behavior and her bad behavior. Charles does not seem to realize that the more of this he does the more people are reminded of his shortcomings. If he put her more in the background she may not be well liked but he would not be shoving her down the public's throats.  Charles needs to find more productive uses for his money. It's like throwing money down the toilet to keep up this overhyping. Charles needs to grow up. He is still the man child who needed the nanny mistress. He should really be preparing his own successor William for his future role not foisting his ex mistress on the public.

I'm NOT so sure he's/was this obligated to HER.
In 1997 when Diana died he definitely wasnt anymore obligated to Camilla, but yes she was a very bad PR (a big trouble) for him, 10x worse than when Diana was alive, re:War of Waleses.
If he dont wanted Camilla anymore in his life, the death of Diana was THE best help he could have had in his life, 'his deep guilty' would have been THE most perfect PR, all what he needs for get rid Camila of his life. But obviously, he DO not wanted her out of his life.
Charles is a spoiled, full of himself man, whos likes get what/when/how he wants. He believes deeply he's entitled to it because he was born future king.
I hardly thinks he's the type to get obligated to anything or anyone. Camilla can get married to him BECAUSE she knows plays his ego. He wanted that woman because she was always ready to pleased him without have him remember/ask of what he likes. Many men are into this type of women. That between 1970s & 1990s she was one of women he was in love with, I have none doubt about this.
THE TRUTH is she was always THE FAVORITE of his mistresses (the women whom Charles always had feelings). Even Lord Mountbatten (arguably the person had most influence on Charles) said he was 'too attached' to Camilla  & was worried about that. Even that man knew that Charles was in love with Camilla and he would brought her to his future marriage... When she get married he was (even) told be upset about that.
Now they're married alot seems have changed re:feelings (really the typical to men who got married to his mistresses)... after marriage yes I believe he's stuck with her. Before, no way. IMO she was there all of that years because he wanted she there. No doubt during many years she was his BFF female.

A property empire fit for a prince: How Charles has keys to nearly 1,000 bedrooms in houses worth a total of £763million

Prince Charles is considering adding to his already impressive portfolio
He has homes in Highgrove, Clarence House, Llwynywermod and Birkhall
Also has two ancient farmhouses in Transylvania and 25 holiday cottages
Oval cricket ground and half of Dartmoor are also included in his empire


Quote
And with the keys to nearly a thousand bedrooms and more than 250 bathrooms – not to mention acres of gardens, forest and moorland – you might think Prince Charles had quite enough property on his plate.

But now he is planning to acquire more – he is considering buying the 123-room, 16th Century Port Eliot House in Cornwall from the eccentric Earl of St Germans for a reported £10 million.

Charles’s official residences are Highgrove, Clarence House, Llwynywermod and Birkhall.

However, his property empire includes two ancient farmhouses in Transylvania – where his neighbours include wolves, lynxes and brown bears; more than 25 holiday cottages in the Scilly Isles, Wales and Cornwall; the 23,000-seat Oval cricket ground in London and half of Dartmoor, including its prison. And that, it seems, is just the tip of the iceberg.

One IS a grandfather: Prince Charles tenderly holds Prince George in a never-seen-before photograph that features in new royal video

Following the birth of Prince George, the Prince of Wales described the experience of becoming a first-time grandfather as ‘a unique moment in anyone’s life’.

And now, a never-before-seen photograph of the royal and his one-year-old grandson proves just how proud he is of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's son.

The framed image of the 66-year-old and Prince George took pride of place on a table in the background of a newly released video clip, which the Prince released to support the world's biggest environmental event, Earth Hour.

The pic of charles holding George, it doesn't look real, did he have someone photoshop a pic of george in there?

Post by: CarryingOn on March 28, 2015, 06:53:41 am
^ It does. That other one where he's supposedly holding George during that sham, shamble, and shame of a Christening, also looked photoshopped. It doesn't really look like George to me either but they could have done something to his face with photoshop. I think it most likely is though because his body composition is that of last summer and so is that ugly outfit of overalls and the white sunhat.

I just think this was a stupid move because it doesn't prove anything. One photo from last summer that is most likely photoshopped? :- okay then

Amazing how an underwear model suddenly becomes so entrepreneurial after marriage to a well connected young woman and is now getting government bucks. Now that branch is freeloading and how disgusting that Charles has no pride in himself.

Come heir for the beer! Prince Charles to name new pub in his Dorset designer village after Camilla - and it will be on Queen Mother Square

Prince Charles is to name a pub in his designer village Poundbury after the Duchess of Cornwall - it will be built on the centre-piece Queen Mother Square.

The inn, which will have 20 bedrooms, is being built in the prince's model village in Dorset as a joint development between the Duchy of Cornwall and brewery Hall & Woodhouse.

The estate, which is on his Duchy of Cornwall land near Dorchester, already has a Prince George House.

Camilla is hardly a 30, 40 something anymore, but she's somebody's mother, somebody's grandmother and somebody's wife.

None of us will stay 'forever young'.  IMO some of this constant digging at her is venom over her past - which they ALL had.

The "great love" left a great mess. The irony is I don't think Charles wanted to marry her way back when, not thinking her suitable and became obligated when he named her. I do think Harry is fleeing the country. I hope Wimpo does not pose for a "happy families" pic with Camilla and Papa.

Well, with someone like Camilla it's all about how SHE feels and how SHE needs to live life. She's going to go down as one of the central reasons that the monarchy collapsed and I wonder if she realizes this. Women like Camilla, they don't want to own up to their past so they are determined to make everyone else shoulder the blame and responsibility for what happened. No wonder Charles hasn't grown at all and both princes are collapsing. The minute Charles married Camilla he put a HUGE burden on his sons and that alone is just low of Charles.

it is shocking how the mistress get showered with so much respect, jewelry, and vacations.

Not really.

In France there was a role of "official mistress" and often mistresses got better treatment and respect than the Queen herself. Charles II was notorious for making his wife live a lot less grandly than his mistresses. It's only shocking now because in the recent past, being a mistress wasn't a public honor.

I do think Charles and Camilla believe their own spin and publicity. It is sad that their spin features the knocking down of Diana, who happens to be the mother of Charles heirs.  Diana may have fought with Charles in the media wars but early on Charles got jealous of her and she was barely out of her teens.

Camilla will be known as the woman who triumphed over a princess and how the princess ended up dead and the mistress with the wedding ring and title. Camilla's sexual history will be dragged out and scrutinized and her lovers listed. The palace won't be able to stop the deluge of history several decades down the road. History always pinpoints things at various places and I do believe that her status as Queen will be one where she will be known as a woman who married a prince after usurping a princess and of course, destroyed systematically thousands of history with her selfishness. The aristocrats likely *despise* her guts, particularly the women who *despise* how Camilla showed the world that wives are replaceable. Camilla started out as a mistress and also ended up crossing a HUGE line in society.

Her past will be brought up time and time and time again in biographies, her role will be debated, much like that of Anne Boleyn. Unlike Anne, Camilla didn't NEED a prince's largesse for her family to be able to survive, nor did Charles marry her to get more heirs from her. Camilla will be likely going down in history how her marriage to Charles took the entire monarchy to a new low that enabled the Middletons to get in because Charles didn't have any moral authority to deny William the 'right' to marry Kate.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Campon is cheating on Chuck.
When she was married she would call Chuck the minute APB left the house and since leopards don't change their spots the could be having affairs IMO.
As she and Chuck don't live together she wouldn't even have to call so that saves Chuck some cash for her telephone bill. :nervous:


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: Ariel on April 07, 2015, 11:29:42 am
^^ I think that Charles' selfishness started all these events too. Kate is holding William with the fake heirs just like Camz is holding Charles with the public announcement that she's the mistress, the one. Charles treated Diana - who gave him her youth and her love as a womb for the heirs while he's living his life with the love of his life and now his son is paying the price because - even if there's a woman he loves, even if there's a legitimate kid with his DNA - he is stuck with not one but two surrogate heirs who may not even be his kida biologically. so, Charles used Diana as an egg donor and now William is either used as a sperm donor or point blank as a surrogate father of kids which are not his. And just like Charles did not even bother to ask for permission or ask Diana if she'll accept 'the score', Kate did not even bother to tell her husband that she's fake pregnant again and he had to learn about it from the newspapers.

ke

Charles shamelessly used william in his Camilla promotion. I don't think William will ever really like Camilla. She didn't like his mother either to say the least. Charles always put Camilla first. Camilla is not the grandmother despite the spin. Charles is responsible for this mess he should expect some fallout. William is closer to the Middletons now.

Considering the trashing of William's mother, I would say C and C have not let go of the past.

A few comments:

I am wondering why Mark Shand's daughter did not attend or his girlfriend and his other sister. Quite Odd IMO.

I don't see this as a "new look" for Camilla. She had the hair trimmed but still has the "helmet hair" as I see it.

I am wondering why she carried that strange purse.

I think the PBs and Shands will continue to be honored through Charles' tenure. This memorial to Shand was dedicated very fast. It took more time to get a memorial for the Queen Mother. Another oddity IMO. Shand was an interesting person but dedicating a statue to him? !

No surprises at the expensive bling IMO. It is funny to me because Charles spin put out the "spending" of his first wife. It seems wife no. 2 is more expensive than wife no. 2.  ANd even funner since it seems to me Camilla's hair looks like the helmet style (with a blow out) that she always has worn.

No surprises at the expensive bling IMO. It is funny to me because Charles spin put out the "spending" of his first wife. It seems wife no. 2 is more expensive than wife no. 2.  ANd even funner since it seems to me Camilla's hair looks like the helmet style (with a blow out) that she always has worn.

From what I read Charles once had a dog that he adored but had to get rid of, so IMO I disagree that he can't be cuddly to animals. 

I actually agree with Yooper - the BRF seem very loving to their animals over people.

Unfortunately Charles will never be 'loveable,' he just hasn't got what it takes.  The best he can do is to be serious and stop trying to win the public's affection.  Most of us here in the UK want a
future King we can respect, not someone running around playing the village idiot and reading weather reports as he has done in the past.

^ I agree, Val.   He just needs to be himself.   I have serious issues with the man, but he does have good qualities as well.  I like his conservationism and his love of animals.  He's always been a dog lover, but mugging with them for the camera isn't doing him any favors.  I think he is seriously freaking out over the thought of taking over from his mother.

OF course he's intelligent (not an intellectual IMO) but with an interest in issues around him. But that said, I find is mugging and gurning for the cameras not a great way to "win" the public. Next he'll go stomping around in a clown suit to show he is "fun."  Camilla also makes faces for the cameras. If they think this is a way to "win" the public, or someone is advising them to do this, to me it's not working. Holding up a dog and mugging is really overdoing it IMO.

William needs to be seen doing more serious charity work not those that involve him watching sports.

What does one do with this? Baffled Camilla is handed Andy Murray's dirty sweatband after he hurls it into the Royal Box at Wimbledon following second round victory
Andy Murray has breezed through to the third round of Wimbledon, after beating Robin Haase of the Netherlands in a straight sets victory on Court 1.

But one person who didn't seem too pleased with his exuberant celebration was the Duchess of Cornwall, who was pictured playfully turning up her nose at his sodden sweatband as he tossed it into the crowd.

Murray, watched by his new wife Kim and his pregnant coach Amelie Mauresmo, won 6-1 6-1 6-4 against the Dutchman in the second round and tore off his band before launching it towards All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club chairman Philip Brook in victory.

Mr Brook looked delighted to have caught the band, and quickly showed off his prize to the Duchess - who seemed to wrinkle her nose as she fingered the material.

However a royal source said the Duchess was 'delighted' to receive Murray's sweat band, and met him after his win to 'pass on her congratulations'.

Well, the dog looks like he was in and had been handed the script of the expression he had to put on his face for the PR stunt.  We laughed that you Brits liked to watch him doing ridic things like reading the weather.
No offense, but this is not Obama being literally walked BY his dog or Putin practically making out with his labrador *female dog*.

I own the overly attached labrador girl, who hugs me a few times during walks and "kisses" my hand every minute or less ....  and people comment, smile, some women literally drool. I go like, I love you too, but we are taking a walk now, because I feel embrassed. I should be cashing in since I got one of the most  affectionate dog on this planet.

He may be freaking out, but let´s face it, most people his age are thinking about retirement and he will likely have to step up. My mum is a couple of months older. It would have been interesting if HM had invited foreign couples around the world celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary back then, because my grandparents would have been on the list. PFFFF. Now they both passed away on year and a half apart from each other.

I've been looking at the articles about the Wales tour and Charles mostly is looking goofy for the cameras and having "fun." Seriously, I think the man is either being ill-advised or thinks he is genuinely "cute" and "funny."  Mostly he points at things.

^Understand what you mean, but we don´t really expect our royals to be pulling pints and turning over pancakes or whatever they were with the locals.  Nice to see them human but there has to be a line drawn.  They lose their appeal, they are not meant to be "one of us".

Must say, the body language between them and the locals, the dog, the babies, is far warmer than anyhting we ever see when the lazy duo are around.  The body language between them so cold, and they all look utterly miserable,  At least, even if false at times, they are trying to be friendly and pleasant, and there is some warmth to them. We don´t get that when with bill and cath medd.

Tom is a fame seeker IMO and name dropper. He has the chronology rewritten.

Tom also does not appear to care about the damage the "great love" caused and seems to forget that Charles had other ladies in his life that he pursued and was serious about.

Don´t you just love hypocrites.  Chucky telling people planes cost fuel we need to go green, blah blah blah.  Helicopter to a polo match at Windsor Park on Sunday, and back.  Since when did royal flights take you to a polo match, why not a car like anyone else. 

The Prince, who declared in 2012 that ‘mankind must go green or die’, booked the Sikorsky chopper, which is based at RAF Odiham, Hampshire. It flew the 60-mile journey to Charles’s Gloucestershire retreat, Highgrove, picked him up and took him the 68 miles to Windsor Great Park. There he transferred to a Jaguar for the short hop to Guards Polo Club to watch England defeat South America in the Coronation Cup.

Plus, of course, the reverse journey

Independent running with the above story now as well.

The Prince of Wales has been branded a “serial hypocrite” after it emerged that the heir to the throne– who prides himself on his green credentials – used a helicopter to fly less than 70 miles in order to attend a polo match.

Nice little map of the route.  A helicopter to go 70 miles  -  took more time to get to Highgrove.  A 200% hypocrite of the highest order.

Now Charles uses royal helicopter to see flower show

Hard on the heels of my revelations yesterday about Prince Charles using the royal helicopter to attend a polo match, there is more evidence of his extravagant travel habits.

This week, Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall used the red Sikorsky helicopter to attend the Sandringham Flower Show in Norfolk — a trip involving four flights, as the crew had to travel from their base in Hampshire.

It came just four days after the ‘green’ Prince used it to attend a polo match in Windsor — an expedition that racked up 256 air miles and used about 200 gallons of aviation fuel.

The helicopter is funded by taxpayers, who have also had to stump up £1.2 million for a new hangar that opened at RAF Odiham this month.

By contrast, when the Queen visits Sandringham, she can usually be seen catching a scheduled train from King’s Cross to King’s Lynn — at a cost of £44.20 with a Senior Railcard.

No wonder her son and heir has started to be known as ‘Air Miles Charlie’.


So, chopper Highgrove or Windsor, then down to Norfolk, and the same return journey.  HM puts them to shame on that one.  Love the way us taxpayers fund it all, did he really need to attend a flower show in Norfolk we ask ourselves, a flower show, he needs to get a life, hardly vital to anyone´s well-being is it.

Not an attractive women even when young. IMO. I would not waste the time on that woman sending her cards. I would not be "thrilled" either. I guess this could be how Charles wants to prove how people have "warmed" to her.

I think Camilla benefitted because she like Charles wants to appear "loveable" and the public should know about it.  I think  The 24 year old has an odd choice of someone to admire--maybe she's a relative. Though it would to me be equally icky if the card went to Kate.

The pictures the young woman chose were rather ugly IMO. And all the whitewashing. Maybe this young woman is an avid reader of Penny Junor who knows?

I am suspicious that Charles PR team had something to do with it. The makeover of Charles to try to depict him as the loveable funny old codger and Camilla as the sweet little old lady who adores small children and animals. And the PR might be getting that desperate.

It creeps me out to contemplate this young woman making up this little card for Camilla or anyone taking the time to do this for any royal (Kate, et al) and being "thrilled" that an answer was received.

Utterly charming' Camilla wows Philip Schofield during her first appearance on live TV (but gets starstruck when introduced to the 'very famous' Lorraine Kelly and Susanna Reid)

The Duchess of Cornwall was declared 'a natural' at doing on live TV this morning by no less a person than veteran host Phillip Schofield.

He was introduced to Camilla as she paid a visit to the set of This Morning on London's South Bank to mark the 60th anniversary of broadcaster ITV.

During the tour, the Duchess, who was elegant in pink Bruce Oldfield, also met Holly Willoughby and other daytime TV stars including Susanna Reid and Lorraine Kelly.

This saddens me, to ignore the outstretched hand of a War Veteran being pushed along in a wheel chair.  He fought for his country for goodness sake, he is now confined to a wheel chair, advanced in years, and a hand shake from chucky, for him, would have not just made his day but delight him for the rest of his life.  One small gesture that would have meant the world to this man, and chucky could not be bothered.  In public as well.  Probably saying under his breath  -  move along old chap, my lunch will be ready soon,  don´t hang about.

Comments very scathing, this one in particular caught my eye

The Prince of Wales has shook hands with the Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams, IRA terrorist. Shame on him!

Say it isn't so, the royal family uses staged PR?!?!

Quote
His brief encounter with Jane Priest, a 26-year-old beauty, in November 1979 made headlines around the world and helped transform Charles's image from shy, young fogey into one of the world's most eligible bachelors.

It was only in 2005 that it emerged that the whole thing was a PR set-up though.

The DUchess of Compassion spent years maneuvering and manipulating so she got where she is today. The PR is a bit much making her look "saintly" based on photo ops at these centers. The woman does not work at these places nor is remotely a counselor but the PR goes overboard like she "discovered" the problem. Camillla was on a  mission to undermine another woman to get where she is today. I would not remotely see this person as any sort of an "advocate"--except for herself. Diana said she felt worthless after Charles ditched her for Camilla. So now Camilla is "helping" victims so they don't feel worthless. Very ironic IMO.

IMO I don't think because someone has done something wrong in their life precludes them from ever doing anything right or kind.   Every living person has a right and the ability to make good in their life.  That includes ppl like Willy and
Wasty.

If someone can never be given a chance then we are all guilty of claiming we ourselves or others are/were perfect.  We aren't. No one ever was.

Camilla will be queen; like it or *despise* it - even if she never uses the title. 

Do the RF use PR? Yes, of course, but it would have been used on all that have gone before as well.

Whatever I think about Charles' stance on this it doesn't make sense that the Prince of Wales has political reasons to not receive a head of state of another country. They may attend the welcoming but not going to the banquet is an awful decision.

I think she's worn three cream and two blue on the trip so far.  Arrival outfit was from the Jubilee Pageant (glad to see that one again). Another cream outfit was fine except for odd sparkly epaulettes.  She knows the silhouette that suits her and she sticks with it, but the colors are limiting I agree.

Funny bit about her playing around with a knife here

Camilla should have stayed away and given Charles and Diana a chance. I do believe that there was something between them that may have grown if she had kept away. Diana should have been the next Queen and would have been if she and Charles had not divorced.

There were three in the marriage. There may be three in the Cambridge's marriage but I don't think that it's a lover or mistress (not yet anyway).

I'm glad that Charles and Camilla are just relaxing casually by the pool, and they're not pitching a fit about things. It isn't a fashion show, it is a break during a busy tour.  They're visiting many places, packing in a lot over a few days, just as they usually do. There are crowds showing up, people are happy to see them, and C&C are having fun and engaging with their hosts. Another successful tour for these two.

The arrangement of questions pre interview is quite normal but the level of intrusion into the whole process is not.

But the media should think about not giving him the opportunity to appear on any media and I'm sure he would change his tune.

Also some people know that Charles is into climate change but I wouldn't say he is an icon of the cause at all.

Chucky does not have a clue.  If he makes it to the throne doubt he will last long.  He has not got a clue. Save fuel, oh yes, just get a helicopter to come from where t down to Highrove, take him half an hour down the road, wait to bring him back and the return to whence it came.  Definitely not worrying about the carbon foot print when it relates to anything he wants to do.

http://www.desmogblog.com/2015/11/30/prince-charles-demands-governments-scrap-fossil-fuel-subsidies

And this is a comment on the above story from a social media site

"Wink Wink, guess who is a major recipient of those subsidies, with Betty's major share holdings in Rio Tinto, B.P extra.
When Prince Charles can order some of his organic veggies to be pulled out of the garden at Windsor Castle and have them airlifted to Sandringham so they'll still be fresh for tea, I'd question if he had any credibility whatsoever on the environmental scene. Such a blinkered soul. Doesn't understand that it should apply to him too,"

Bit like his concern for the carbon foot print and asking the public to reduce their travel, and he takes as above, using a helicopter needlessly.  Again, don´t do as I do, do as I say (or want you to).

PRINCE Charles has been accused of "breathtaking hypocrisy" after writing about the need to protect "beautiful landscapes with hedgerows" as a 55-acre site in Truro owned by the Duchy of Cornwall is ripped up for housing and a supermarket.

He is, officially, His Royal Highness Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, Earl of Chester, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.

But to his sons he is just another embarrassing dad.

To empathise with people who have been through something dreadful you need to experience the same, or similar. As I highly doubt she has ever been a victim of domestic violence then IMO this is all part of the pr to make us all think they are kind and caring people  -  the image of the rf is very low these days, and all this ridiculous pr does not make it one whit better, in fact it just draws attention as to how outdated and ridiculous they are  They are desperately clawing the bottom of the barrel these days  -  probably gone hope, put her glad rags on, put her feet up and had lunch on a silver salva, put her favourite tv programme on and all forgotten about.

^ The "compassionate face" is probably how she thinks it is done  -  all very false.  She has no understanding of what these people went through, none at all, she can be sympathetic, yes, but she has no true idea of what they have been feeling.  Like the rest of the rf IMO  -  fake to the core.  They are all too arrogant to realise that people have brains and intelligence, they can see through all this fake stuff. About time they all woke up and realised the days of serfs believing everything they do and utter is the truth  -  sadly for them, nowadays we know differently and we know their pr is based on lies to make themselves look good.

Me neither.  Looking pretty good for her age, still quite a bit of met on her bones.  As my gran would have said, she looks the picture of health.  The old bird does look well for her age, she is mid to late sixties, and looks much better than she did pre-marriage to chucky.  It is alleged that she spends at a lot of time at Ray Mill  -   probably keeps her sanity intact from fussy chucky being around all the time.  Never thought I would ever say this, never been a camilla fan, but the old bird is looking good these days.

I don't think Charles wants to meddle with the succession; he's testy about that and I think this alleged love child should back off and not push the BRF around. Right now they have their hands full with the Cambridge ducal dimwits and I think Charles might lash out if he has to put up with this.

Anyway, right nqw chucky is too concerned about getting his shoelaces ironed.

Interesting comment I found on a FB thread.  Correct or not?  Who knows, but I have read, on several reputable sites, that HM has had Acts of Parliament pushed through fast and not released to the public.  I know some will doubt that, I don´t.  A lot goes on behind closed doors, and what HM wants HM gets, I firmly am of that belief.  There was quite a lot of talk at the time of the chucky/camzilla wedding about how he wangled it through, and this could well be the answer,. Strange also that the details etc of that marriage are locked away for 100 years.

I am a confirmed Republican and have been since I started history lessons aged 11. I still read and study monarchical history, it's like reading a horror story but it's real. I am puzzled how many friends and family I meet that are of the opinion that Charles will not be next King. Wishful thinking?? During Blair government Charles had eight articles of law changed by Privy Council. One to allow him to marry Camilla. And to permit her to become his Queen and not consort. He will King George Vlll and she will be Queen Mary.

There are two glaring errors (besides the fact that all laws are published in the Gazette and until Gazetted they aren't law). All the discussions in parliament are recorded and the sessions are open to the public.

One - Charles won't be George VIII as there have only been 6 so far. It has been discussed since November 1948 what his regnal name will be and George VII was suggested back then so nothing major there.

Camilla as Queen and not Consort would mean Charles is saying his wife will be in his mother's position - where would that leave Charles - as nothing and the line would be passing from Camilla to her children. Whatever title Camilla uses it will be as a Consort in the same way that the Queen Mother was the Queen Consort although usually the term consort wasn't used.

The Blair government stated at the time of the wedding that regardless of what title she used she would be the Princess of Wales and Queen Consort - nothing secret about that as it is in the Hansard records. No laws needed to give Camilla the same rights as every other women in the land - the right to take her husband's names and titles. The laws would be needed to strip her of those rights not to give them to her.

Found this whilst trawling for something else.  Interesting photo

(1)  Chucky stood by sprog I, totally disinterested, not even looking his way, and the body language is cold, easy to see they do not really know one another.  A cold photograph altogether.  All that drivel about sprog I and chucky being close is just that, pure drivel.

(2)  Cath medd "hugging" someone, I know not who, and obviously does not want to get too close, heaven forbid, might catch something.

Charles was trained to be a Prince, William was raised to be a spoiled brat first and foremost. Charles was not allowed to shirk his duties and was not allowed to mouth off to HM or mouth off about his family to the public (at least until the 90's when he and Diana were at each other's throats). Charles was always a realist and William has been nothing but naive. Charles had no problems pushing back against women who tried to push him around and William does not.

Charles isn't blind to human nature and William lies to himself. Charles thinks of his country and people, William thinks of himself and his addiction to drama.

Charles did get involved with a very nervy woman who helped damage his reputation. He's still not beloved by all. Charles wanted to do his work and I doubt wanted to shirk anything. He searched for a role for himself and did not wait for his mother to decide to give him more work (like William says about himself which is so whiny and pathetic).

Charles did mouth off about HM via his ill advised authorized biography.He himself has done some damage control and tried to mend fences since then. Even  being on a documentary where he saw himself as a child with his mother (via home movies).

Charles did listen to mentors who gave him bad advice (Mountbatten)

The trouble with William started when he was wrapped in cotton wool at University and pampered. He did have "brat" tendencies early on but these could have been addressed early on. Charles even apologized to someone for William's bad behavior. William should have apologized.  But at 33 going on 34 William is not a baby and this is all on him. If only the Queen would have read William the riot act before William started "crediting" her in public for his lack of work initiative.

This is a sad mess.

You know, when Charles was a kid, he was doing appearances and basically always deferring to his grandmother's guidance and works with the courtiers. He wrote that book bashing his mother, but that was the nadir of his behavior towards HM and frankly he's never done it again.

I think Charles is well past the point of trying with William.

One thing I admire about Charles, is that he doesn't like to coddle his family members. Charles gave William so much love and gave William so much more than he ever had, but William ended up throwing it back in his face so many times, even Charles has likely given up on his son.

I remember Charles saying that William and Kate had practiced long enough, not the cooing of a father happy with his son's choice. Despite his marital messes, Charles would have never considered a fait accompli engagement announcement behind HM's back and Camilla never has had a nude scandal.

I imagine that if William does not step down, Charles might act against William when he (Charles) becomes King. I don't think it'll be easy, but it will have to be done and will have to be settled one way or another. This can't go on forever and William is self destructing right in front of his face.

Even if William is forced to step down by Charles, Charles will protect him and will likely go after Kate so hard and so fast the actions against Diana will look benign by comparison. I don't believe Charles will hold back and I think he's quietly plotting how to 'fix' Kate and her rotten family once and for all.

Charles certainly practiced with Camilla so he's not one to talk--Charles showed lack of class making that remark, he should have made a comment about congratulations no matter how he really felt.. Charles cannot force William to step down, any more than the Queen could force Charles to step down. Charles own treatment of Diana would come back to bite him (the public don't have short memories) if he tried to "fix" Kate. William and Charles IMO both have issues. William's laziness and stubbornness about doing royal work is a huge problem. IT is part of William's nature and even if Kate is ousted, William would still select another enabler. He chose Kate because she is just as lazy. The Queen can fix the problem by telling William here is your plate of full time work if you and your wife slack off, no more perks and no vacations and even threaten to take away one of the lavish homes.

The problem with Charles dealing with Bill Middleton is that it has taken a long long time for Camilla to be (only just) accepted and not by all.  Charles has never really been popular despite his wish to be and he is terrified of the Diana backlash again.  Council Caro took full advantage of this, (it was her trump card) to worm her and her ghastly family in.  Camilla is proving to be warm, kind and genuine and receives much praise when she does meet the public and Charles is reluctant to rock the boat again.  If he doesn't however there will soon be no Monarchy.

What happened happened and no one can go back.

That said, I think the whole Diana card is played out and if Charles took action against WK, they could wave the Diana card, but it simply wouldn't work. As for stepping down, Charles could figure something out and frankly the Diana card won't protect him since Diana has been dead twenty years.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on May 12, 2016, 02:43:17 pm
I don't see Camilla as warm and genuine  and nice and never will (there are people who would not go anywhere near her so the ones who show up like her to begin with or don't care--little children don't know much about how she got to be Duchess of Cornwall)--she got what she wanted by causing pain to others and would probably do the same thing all over if she had the chance. People still remember Diana and Charles' treatment no matter how he spins it, not everyone is going to take his side. The signs of trouble were evident for years re: William, he was handed honors like the Order of the Garter when he  did nothing except be the heir to the heir, he got wrapped in cotton wool at Uni, Charles had to apologize on his behalf when William went speeding along in a car on someone's private estate, he then felt perhaps he could do as he pleased, the Queen handed him lavish homes approved needless renovations, Charles even attacked his own brother Edward because he left cameras at St. Andrews when William was there. He married someone who did not work for 10 years taking jobs only part time and leaving them on a whim or when William called. I think Kate is an enabler and if William divorced her he'd just go find another enabler, maybe a younger one. It may not be too late if the Queen demands he fulfill the royal duties or she will take away the perks and vacation time and insist he end playing normal at the Ambulance base. I think had the Queen Mum lived longer she'd have said Lilibet what are you THINKING? Charles can't force him to step down without losing credibility. I think William would be the one to shoot himself in the foot and he would be the one who would bring about his possibly stepping down. George V could not force his son Edward not to take the throne, Edward VIII did and his self destructive behavior did him in.

Post by: Rebecca on May 12, 2016, 03:57:16 pm
IMO, the ranks of people who still hold the Diana/Charles divorce against Camilla are shrinking. Specifically among the under 35 crowd who were children during the height of the drama and do not know/remember/care about exactly who did what. I am among that number and I like Camilla. I think what happened with Diana was unfortunate, but as others have said, it was 20+ years ago and people change.  I think the time to play the Diana card is long past. She wasn't a saint, just an imperfect person like everyone else, and I wish that the media/William/the public would just let her RIP. I imagine that if she were alive and knew what is going on with the RF, she would have more disappointment and anger towards W & K than C & C.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on May 12, 2016, 04:05:27 pm
Actually in a way, the Diana/Charles divorce is irrelevant to William's case. Even if people don't know about or have not read up on it, Charles has been trying IMO to cultivate the image of the "fun" loveable old codger who builds tree houses for and shares gardening chores with his adorable grandchildren. He has acted goofy and "fun" on some of his appearances, chortling and laughing. If he turns on William and Kate, that image would be eradicated and he would seem "mean" especially to the little ones who would be affected by his ousting their mother and father. Charles has been working on his image for years and I don't think he'd jeopardize it by being "mean." I do think at this point it is up to the Queen to put her foot down and give William and Kate full time duties she'd expect them to fulfill and if anyone causes his  downfall it would be William himself. I don't like Camilla but IMO she too is not relevant to William's case either. I don't think Camilla  and Charles have changed in the least. And the Diana generation certainly can fill in their children about what happened. I don't think all 35 and younger like Camilla. My take on it. I do think Diana would have been very disappointed in her son particularly during his cringeworthy "weight of duty" interview.

The only adorable children chucky plays with and had the tree house renovated for are Camzilla´s grandchildren.  Often seen in photos with them and has the most wonderful bond with them and appears to enjoy being step-grandad.  As for camzilla, I think she has earned her stripes these days, never thought I would say that, but when I see council cath and council caro and the rest of the vile medds, then IMO they make Camzilla look positively wonderful. 

Chucky does a lot of things behind the scenes, and @marion is correct, he has many, many influential friends, and many others who back him to the hilt.  If chucky wants something done, then from what I have read over the years it is done, all behind the scenes and quietly.  If he wants to sort bill medd and council cath out, then he will, that I believe to be 100% positive.

As we have never seen him "having fun" with the sprogs I find it difficult to believe he has anything to eradicate and in which case how can he look mean about something that never took place.   I do also think Camzilla is relevant to bill medd and council cath  -  she is his wife and will support chucky in whatever he decides to do, and like most wives, and we all do it, we lead our men the way we want things to go, human nature.

It is my opinion that many have let Diana go now, life and the world has moved on, in a big way.  The rf are no longer a fascination these days, and as much as I loved Diana, and am sorry at her early death, when I have grandchildren I will not be telling them about her, can´t think why I would.  She will be old history to them and also died nearly 20 years ago.  I recall thinking 20 years old was over the hill.  Children have a different time concept to adults.

It is my belief that to sideline bill medd and council cath will not affect the sprogs at all.  There will still be a large house, plenty of money, first class schools, university, holidays, etc etc.  They will not suffer at all, and will still live a luxurious lifestyle on the taxpayer.  As bill medd gives many the impression he does not want to be king, does not want to work, or do anything other than laze around on the taxpayer time, then it is my opinion that it would be a win-win situation.  Still a lot of the perks with no responsibilty  -  right up his street I would imagine.  If there was a divorce he might not even want to remarry, on the other hand he could already have someone in mind, none of us know whether that is the case or not. He might even find himself someone who will actually help him to grow up and behave in an adult fashion, he sure does not do that now.

Good on chucky if he wants to sort this out, about time bill medd got some home truths from him and a kick up the butt.

Yes, everyone knows that all of the RF have nothing to do with Prince Piglet and The Viperette. Especially Charles. The last thing he wants to set his eyes on is the little goblin's face who we think resembles gutter snipe Council Caro......but then we really don't know what she looks like because team viper is always photoshopping her. The Piglet just stares at Charles because he doesn't know who he is.

Charles allegedly does not like having small children underfoot even Camilla's grandchildren. Which is one reason she kept Raymill, to see her children and grandchildren. That said: he projects that he's the loveable granddad via PR where he had a photo of him holding George behind him when he gave a speech, articles appeared about the magical garden and treehouse at Highgrove, the maze, how George helps him plant flowers in the garden and how he is "over the moon" about having a granddaughter and so on. This is the image he wants of himself even if he does not see the children that much. If he appeared "mean" to George and Charlotte's parents that would undo years of PR which tries to paint him as "loveable."

A parent does not have to tell a child or grandchild about a historic figure. There are books and films. Those not knowing much about Henry VIII would see current miniseries and want to read up and be inspired. Young people are all interested in Alexander Hamilton since that musical came out. Mom and Dad did not have to tell them. Historical characters are always going to be of interest. The Duke and Duchess of Windsor still are of great interest and come from "ancient" times back in the 20th century. I would not generalize about Diana being forgotten by younger people. since Diana is going to be in the genealogy of future royals I doubt she will be "forgotten". More likely they will see Camilla as the footnote to royal history. I don't think Camilla has any real power, she is very fortunate to be where she is today, considering...

It is also unusual for a royal to give up place in line of succession which would effect his children's rights to the throne. In all likelihood Edward and Wallis were not going to have children anyway, but because he abdicated and she was a divorcee, their hypothetical children would have been bypassed. William and Kate married in the Church of England. I doubt George would be bypassed if William gave up his place.

As KF and others have mentioned elsewhere there are legal reasons why George and Charlotte cannot inherit the throne. It won't matter much anyway as the Republicans are certain there won't be a Monarchy in 16-21 years.  Most of the UK won't care by then anyway.

Maybe it will end with Elizabeth..or Charles. If George and Charlotte were declared illegitimate they could not inherit the throne.  But the wedding was legal. Re: European and Russian abdications: Nicholas II abdicated for himself and his son Alexis. Edward VIII's hypothetical children were not going to inherit.

I wouldn't call the situation of the French and Russian revolution entirely in the same context; Nicholas II was in fact forced/coerced and Louis XVI abdicated as well, but Nicolas/Imperial family were then butchered by the Bolshevik firing squads and Louis XVI was guillotined. I don't believe, unless thing go crazy in Britain it will get that bad, but realistically, I think Charles will have to oust his son William and have Harry instituted in his place.

If the monarchy ends, it will end after Charles.

I think William won't realize what he has done to himself until HM is gone and Charles summons him and his tart wife to his presence and orders William to sign the papers of renunciation or when Charles informs him that after meeting with the Prime Minister and a special closed session of Parliament, informs William that he has been stripped of his title and place in the succession and he (Charles) has given him (William) a month to vacate the palaces.

I think Charles will be particularly nasty, if only so he can get at Kate and the rest of the Middletons.

Good for chucky. At least he appears to have a good relationship with Camzillas grandchildren, quite a few photos on the internet showing him playing with them interacting and having fun  -  they appear to be very fond of step-grandad chucky, and why shouldn´t they be, they are not aware of past history.  Camzilla appears to spend a lot of time with her grandchildren when she can, and chucky had the tree house at Highgrove renovated for them to play in when visiting or staying overnight.

I think Charles finds it refreshing that he's not around children who hold the past over his head on a regular basis and he isn't drowning in power plays.

And that moment will be so delicious for Charles. I will rejoice.

As a father, Charles must feel grief that his own son has done this to him, but as a Prince, I'm sure Charles is loaded with wrath. He won't let William flout his authority like he (William) has with HM. I am more than sure that Charles sees what William has done to HM and Charles will 'fix' him and Kate decisively.

William and Kate are too dim to see that all they would have to do was work and take on more duties. It seems to be more of an effort to make excuses and give pathetic interviews IMO. I doubt Charles would force William to step down before he hands him duties as an order. Taking away perks and homes would be a major trauma for William.  

I think had the Queen Mum still been alive, William and Kate would not have gotten away with this for so long. The romantic talks of the Queen allegedly wanting him to have "family time" was just skewed by William so he could slack off.

I don't think Charles likes small children around him for long periods of time. I doubt he spends much time with Camilla's grandchildren though they have had photo ops together. They do have their own very much alive grandfather Andrew Parker Bowles who for obvious reasons spends more time with them than Charles. Charles seemed a bit uncomfortable picking up Camilla's granddaughter at WIlliam's wedding.

You know, sometimes people marry the wrong person, for one of a thousand different reasons.  It happens all the time.  It's very sad Diana still loved her husband even though he'd moved on emotionally.  Unless you've been through it, you cannot comprehend that pain.  But, she wasn't the first or the last person to lose their partner's love.   

I was such a Diana fan, adored her.  She was beautiful and her work ethic and sense of humour made her even more attractive.  And so her legions of devotees were very vocal about the divorce, which was unfair to Charles.   People change, they fall out of love.  It happens - that's life.  An unhappy partner is not required to be chained to their spouse forever.

So I wish people would give Camilla a break.  As far as I can tell, she and Charles are happy, very well suited, and devoted to each other.  She's an excellent partner for him, she knows his world, she supports him and their history is a long one.

Life is so very short.  To find love again after a divorce is a wonderful thing (I know).  I wish them well.

GAY PRINCE CHARLES CAUGHT WITH BOY TOY!


 Prince Charles’ secret gay life has been blown wide open by shocking photos of the love-sick royal in a sizzling lip-lock with his toy boy beau!

Now palace insiders say the explosive pictures — snapped by a mole in the monarchy — dash any chance Charles had to sit on Britain’s throne!

His mother, Queen Elizabeth, is stunned by the images and now more determined than ever to make her favorite grandchild, Prince William, her heir, sources say.

AHem, They found love while they were married to others. She undermined the first wife. I disagree. Still can't stand her and I remain a Diana fan. Camilla has to do these appearances because it is expected of her. I don't see her as having a great work ethic.

Camilla enjoys the perks and the life of a senior royal. She was working to get this for years and years. I see nothing warm about her and Charles. I hope George turns out OK because I have little hope for the next two monarchs and their wives. Camilla does get praise and criticism and people who meet her like her in the first place. THose who don't stay far far away.  Camilla is not kind considering how she got where she is today. She has to do the work, but she does the minimum. I am a Diana fan who does not like or admire Camilla.

I was and am a huge fan of Diana's. However, as hard as it is to wrap my head around all that was done, I admire Camilla reluctantly now. The past is done and cannot be changed. It doesn't matter how she got there.....she is there and will be Queen Consort. And she will do a good job at that.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on July 11, 2016, 02:37:02 pm
The past cannot be changed but I will never like or admire that woman. I think it does matter how she got there, she deliberately and systematically undermined the first wife it's not like she was a sweet little old lady who rekindled her relationship with Charles after he divorced Diana.  she was there all the time even before Diana, the courtship, the engagement, and the marriage.  Their marriage lowered the bar and theoretically future royals can do as Charles did and wives are very expendable depending on the whim of the prince or king. As far as her work,Camilla has had no choice but to do these appearances and was given several years of supervised training and appearances with PR consultant Mark Bolland. The UK is stuck with her and I think she and Charles richly deserve each other. I think they spend time apart more often considering that she kept on Raymill.

Charles idea of turning this woman into a crusader to help women is a bad joke. Camilla needs to stay with appearances like visiting pubs, feeding horses sugar cubes, adopting stray dogs,  sampling food and walkabouts. It just IMO is a turn off to have the woman depicted as Mother Teresa, considering Camilla's history. This I think will backfire, some of the DM comments are very critical.

You know, Charles is far more old-fashioned than I gave him credit for. In the past, the families of official mistresses did get perks like pensions, position, a good word that would enable the members to move up, and of course, titles. Camilla has done well for her family and her son Tom has benefited immensely. Her ex-husband also has the goodwill for being a good doormat for his future Sovereign and his ex-wife.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III

Why is it a good thing for Tom Parker Bowles to benefit? He is a shameless name dropper talking about "Mum" and "Sir" to promote his books.  I don't think what Camilla did was exactly admirable but her relatives did get on the gravy train. They benefitted before she and Charles got married and yes, even APB is still "in" with royal circles for his being "civilized." I give Charles no credit, he behaved like a creep. Other mistresses OTOH were not as nervy as Camilla and did not trash the wife nor take over hostessing in one of her homes. Camilla got the brass ring.  APB was a true doormat, however. When Camilla was going to be  a grandmother for the first, time the unfortunate first husband was not even mentioned, it implied that CHarles was the grandfather.

I am surprised at how Charles allowed his new wife's family to pull this stunt. It's as if eh's unable to resist rewarding them, as if he feels he owes them.

Prince Charles has paid his sister-in-law £1.5 million in ‘commissions’

Quote
Did you know that the Duchess of Cornwall is very close to her sister, Annabel Elliot? That’s Annabel standing in front of Prince Charles in the photo above. I think I knew at some point that Camilla has a sister, but I forgot it long ago because we rarely hear about Camilla’s family beyond the sometimes random articles about Camilla’s son Tom. Annabel is a lot less scandalous than most royal relatives, but the Daily Mail is still trying to make something out of the duchess’s sister and something about Prince Charles. By all accounts, Camilla, Annabel and Charles are very close. Annabel and Charles have known and adored each other for decades. Annabel is an interior designer, you see, and Charles has given Annabel endless commissions for various properties, which means Charles has been funding Annabel consistently for years. I think that’s supposed to be the scandal.

Quote
    Annabel’s commissons. Annabel’s latest commission is the design of a hotel and pub in the middle of Charles’ model village, Poundbury: “The pub-cum-hotel has risen majestically in the centre of Poundbury, Prince Charles’s model village on the outskirts of Dorchester, and will be named The Duchess Of Cornwall — after Annabel’s elder sister — when it opens in October.”

    How much has Annabel made off of Charles? “Inevitably there is renewed gossip about Mrs Elliot receiving more sustenance from her sister’s royal table — annual accounts of the Duchy, which provide Charles with his multi-millionaire lifestyle, reveal it has paid Annabel £1.5 million for goods and design services since Camilla, 69, married the Prince in 2005.”

    Annabel just copied the design for the Ritz Hotel in Mayfair. “Friends have noticed that the building, which Charles refers to as Poundbury’s new ‘pub’, bears a striking resemblance to Mayfair’s imposing Ritz Hotel, a place to which the Prince has a great sentimental attachment. It was at the Ritz in January 1999, at a party celebrating Annabel’s 50th birthday, that Camilla famously emerged from the shadows to be photographed with Charles in public for the first time. Some in his circle see the similarity in the neoclassical style of the two buildings as more than just a coincidence — since the new pub will perhaps always remind Charles of that key moment in his bid for public acceptance of Mrs Parker Bowles as his official consort.”

    Annabel is always around. “Annabel herself, of course, has been the most constant element of all in Charles and Camilla’s romance (she and businessman husband Simon Elliot even accompanied the couple on their honeymoon to Balmoral). Now she is busily designing the pub’s 20 spacious bedrooms, bestowing on them her traditional, rather chintzy country-house style. It’s the same comfortable decor she has installed in some 25 of the 700-year-old Duchy’s holiday-let cottages in the Scilly Isles, Cornwall and Wales.”

    Why does Charles keep hiring Annabel? “Wouldn’t it have been wiser for the Prince of Wales to ensure his Duchy employed someone other than his sister-in-law — perhaps someone Welsh — to do up at least a few of the cottages? Now comes the major Poundbury project. And once again, it is Mrs Elliot who gets the lucrative nod…The organisation has not put the interior design work out for tender. It says the Prince is ‘very happy with Mrs Elliot’s work’, adding that work doesn’t have to be put out for tender because the Duchy is a private estate. Some might think this description of the estate as ‘private’ — with its 135,000 acres across 23 counties, but mainly in Devon and Cornwall, and encompassing such national landmarks as South London’s Oval cricket ground — is stretching it just a bit.”

    Camilla isn’t getting her sister these jobs though: “But in fact, we understand it wasn’t the Duchess who suggested Annabel create the kind of stylish interiors in Duchy properties that would please the aesthetic tastes of her famously fastidious husband. It was Charles. ‘He adores artistic people,’ explains an aide. ‘In some ways, Annabel has more in common with him than Camilla does.’”

The prince's duties are a piece of cake! Charles and Camilla celebrate 500 years of the Royal Mail with an edible tribute at a reception in the capital

After a busy day of engagements Prince Charles seemed eager to tuck into a piece of cake at the reception celebrating 500 years of Royal Mail on Tuesday.
The Prince of Wales, 67, beamed as he wielded an impressive cake knife intended to cut a red and gold gateau made in tribute of the postal service celebrations.

I don´t like chucky, but I do think he comes off better than council cath (not difficult  though is it)  -  in fact I think he knocks spots off her big time.  He did not gurn much, and at least he tries to mix in and talk to people without looking vacant and coming across as brain dead.  I have to give him some credit where it is due.  Loved him scattering seeds with the kids.  Camzilla getting very plump these days, needs to cut back on whatever it is she is eating, would think she was pregnant if she was younger  lol

Prince Charles named 'Londoner of the Decade'
Prince Charles has been named "Londoner of the Decade" at the Evening Standard's Progress 1000 event honouring innovators in the capital.

The Prince of Wales was given the award to recognise his campaign work, and promoting the best of London and Britain.

Charles was also recognised for his charity work as part of the Prince's Trust, which he founded 40 years ago to help young people.

Over the past 10 years, The Prince's Charities has raised more than £1 billion.

No rest for the Duchess of Cornwall!

She may have been out late at dinner with her son last night but that didn't deter the Duchess of Cornwall from her royal duties this morning.

The 69-year-old royal was out and about bright and early on a visit to the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine in central London where she met with podiatrists and patients.

Dressed in a chic blue dress emblazoned with yellow flowers, the Duchess, who is Patron of the College of Podiatry, was treated to a guided tour of the hospital.

Look familiar? Prince Charles builds a house fit for a Queen Mother with a Buckingham Palace lookalike bricks and mortar tribute to his late grandmother

    The grand Strathmore House has been named in a nod to the Queen Mother's Scottish heritage
    It features the Royal Arms, a balcony and two large pillars making it appear similar to Buckingham Palace
    The palladian property contains eight luxury flats worth £650,000 each, which have all been snapped up
    Next to it is a five-storey building modelled on the Ritz Hotel, a favourite haunt of the Queen Mother
    The village of Poundbury is being constructed on Duchy of Cornwall land near Dorchester, in Dorset

They are to promote UK partnerships in areas including wildlife conservation and women in leadership.
Prince Charles was greeted at Muscat International Airport by Oman's culture minister. Camilla arrived privately.
The tour will begin officially on Saturday with the royal couple given a ceremonial welcome as guests of Oman's ruler, Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said.http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-37879658

Nervous Camilla befriends owl in Abu Dhabi trip as Prince Charles hunts for pearls

falcons and refused to hold one, although she did nervously allow a young owl called Baby to hop onto her hand.

The duchess, who is with Prince Charles on an official tour of the United Arab Emirates, looked nervously at the birds on a visit to Abu Dhabi’s world-class falconry hospital and said: “They’re rather large, aren’t they?”

When told that female falcons could kill much bigger animals, such as gazelles, by severing their spinal cord, she said, “Good lord” and looked even more rattled.

The Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital is the world’s largest avian hospital and treats around 9,000 birds a year. Falcons are a huge part of Bedouin culture and although they are no longer used for day-to-day hunting, they are revered.

It is estimated that more than 11,000 birds are owned in Abu Dhabi, with some costing more than £100,000.

Prince Charles in Birmingham Koran display in UAE visit

Prince Charles is to present a digital replica of the ancient Koran fragments discovered by the University of Birmingham, in a visit to the United Arab Emirates.
The copy of the manuscript will be a centrepiece of a year of cultural links between the UK and the Gulf state.
The original Koran fragment, possibly the oldest in the world, remains in the University of Birmingham.
The manuscript, at least 1,370 years old, was hailed as a major discovery.
The University of Birmingham's find came last year when a manuscript which it had held since the 1920s was radio-carbon dated and found to be much older than anyone had expected.

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, was recently in the UAE as part of a Middle Eastern tour, where her and Prince Charles spent three days visiting Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.

The British royals were here to promote religious tolerance and support women in leadership, among other things – but nothing sums it up better than this picture, released on Wednesday by Clarence House.

I think she cares for herself. She must do her job since this is what she signed up for and she had years of being prepared by Mark Bolland. Charles brought this all about when he thought he could have it all because of who he is. Royals are no longer placed on high pedestals because of the HRH.

Some people think that they have a right to get to where they want to be, even if it means doing horrendous damage to others. Catherine the Great go to the top by murdering her own husband (after overthrowing him), which is regicide and technically high treason. She then had Ivan VI (a true Romanov overthrown by Empress Elizabeth, the MIL of Catherine) kept under the conditions that if he was ill, he was to have a priest but no doctor and if someone tried to rescue him, he was to be murdered by the guards. As a result, Catherine never rested easy and she worked hard to reinforce her authority as much as she possibly could.

Camilla got to the top by being not just Charles' mistress, but the plaything of other men in society and she's someone who basically didn't have qualms after Diana died. After Diana's death, her own safety was her main focus, not the tragic death of a former wife/consort and mother of two boys. So really, I don't have any pity for someone like her who probably didn't THINK about her success paved the way for Kate. Kate got in because of her marriage to Charles and she didn't think of the broader consequences fo how it would affect her monarchy/sovereign and the dynasty/nation.

Like Kate, she doesn't think of the wider consequences of her actions. Why should she?

She's never been shunned for her bad/disgusting behavior and she's never been called to account for her actions. If a mistress of a politician tried to undermine the wife, the mistress would end up in a bad place one way or another. There is no way anyone like her would end up a political wife. If for once Charles actually THOUGHT like a politician, he would have dropped Camilla and kept her out for good once he first broke it off. I am so sick of this being painted as one big geezerly love story, when it's the exact opposite. It's not like Charles was married in the 1600's.

HM doesn't think like a Queen, she thinks like a middle class housewife. She doesn't seem to care at all about the reality that she's supposed to serve the nation, not the institution of monarchy. HM and Philip have made the fatal mistake to believe that the RF needs to be promoted, like some endless vaudeville act instead of working on behalf of the nation. If HM and Philip thought of the nation, they would have made sure it was Camilla in that car in Paris and not Diana. I am certain that if HM had demanded that Charles train in something more than art in school, he would be a much more seasoned, cosmopolitan royal and would be appreciative of his life outside of making speeches to plants and moping in the countryside. Camilla is of the same small, self centered viewpoint. Camilla is praised for thinking of her family and country homes, but that isn't the point of monarchy.

Camilla was a problem for years IMO. The Queen was alerted by a courtier about her son's behavior with his "friend's" wife she but did nothing. It just got worse from there and he added another married lover to the mix (Lady Kanga). Charles should have moved on when she married someone else but he IMO has a huge sense of entitlement (William takes after him in that) and felt he could have it all. Yes, the "geezerly love story" is quite sickening.  I think both love themselves the most in any case.

Charles should have been prosecuted for sleeping with a brother officer's wife; that might have put a permanent stop to it and saved a lot of misery. It would have damaged him and it might have scared him off of married women for good. HM for some reason takes the view that her adult children should be able to live their own lives and make their own mistakes, but HM isn't taking the nation into consideration. She never really has. She and Charles take their own wants into consideration and basically take a very small minded perspective. It's always about the institution, nto the nation. If they thought about the instituation and the nation, they would in fact end up better off. Instead they lead a country squire mindset with a cosmopolitan lifestyle. I wonder how different things would have been if in fact HM had ordered Charles to stop messing with Camilla and had ahd APB shipped off under some pretext and ordered Camilla to go with her husband.

The Queen just watched while Charles acquired Highgrove a short drive to Bolehyde Manor where the mistress lived with her husband. Just watched as he married Diana with Camilla watching the ceremony. Just watched while knowing Charles was keeping Camilla around as a "friend" and looked down her nose at Diana expecting her to "get on with it."  And then she welcomes Camilla into the family giving her an HRH and all the trimmings. She told Princess Margaret she could not marry Peter Townsend (who was not the guilty party in his divorce action).  She just watched the trainwreck of Charles and Camilla.

One thing I do know, is that the Duke of Windsor is owed an apology; he was a Nazi supporting jerkoff in some areas, but the way he and Wallis were blasted is in my view unforgivable. Wallis did what she had to do to survive and for some reason, she was crucified. The only supposedly evil thing that she did was get out of an abusive marriage and as for remarrying, how else was she supposed to end up living? Back then, society women were literally banned from working for a living and her next husband left her, which in my view (however much it went down) he left her easily enough. He could have held on and been the husband who stood up for his wife or at least prevented the abdication crisis, but things went differently. Both were driven out of Britain even though they did charity work in other countries and enjoyed life, which is no crime.

As for Margaret, don't get me started. HM is Head of the Church and could have easily blasted all those who disagreed back into their place by asserting herself as Sovereign and not tolerating any dissent. All that had to go down was HM making a speech about how after serving his country in a glorious manner and noting that Margaret had done as much as she could to the war effort, HM could have pushed it through. IT would have shown solidarity to her subjects and even had Peter Townsend do some kind of penance in a church ceremony and have a true fairytale. Then Margaret would have had a stable home life, passed the odious Snowdon, and lived a fulfilling royal career. Then there might not have been a major divorce and scandal. Instead, HM took the passive route and basically let her own sister get shafted and walked all over by a church that is supposed to be subordinate to the Sovereign.

It has been the busiest November for the BRF for two years. There were 536 public engagements performed, according to blogger Cepe Smith who's been collating the figures each month. Charles performed 92 of them.

Impossible to know what Charles and Camilla were going through without walking a mile in their shoes. I'm not condoning what they did, but many people make mistakes in life and go on to have a second chance. Should people who make a mistake be punished for the rest of their life for it? That is what I mean by not receiving the credit she deserves- being treated as a person who shouldn't be offered a second chance no matter what she does.

Post by: KatherineTheGreat on December 18, 2016, 12:58:14 pm
There were too many factors involved in Diana's death to point the finger at Camilla. Yes, she was involved in the breakup of Charles and Diana, though I suspect that Charles and Diana would have divorced anyway eventually due to personality differences. They seemed not well suited personality wise. It seems Charles had chosen her in part because she met traditional requirements and there is rumored to have been pressure from Prince Philip. Not a good foundation to start off a marriage. Diana dating Dodi, Diana going to France, choosing to get into a car with a driver who had been drinking and was driving very quickly, not wear a seatbelt, etc. Camilla was not there and couldn't have changed these things.

I think Camilla has behaved herself very well since marrying Charles. The way they came together is complicated and messy, but in life, you fall, you make mistakes, and it's how you persevere and pull through that that shows what you are made of. As Cate said, punishment for transgressions is not up to us and we are asked to forgive anyway. PR or not, if you can't pull yourself together, it just doesn't work. Look at the rest of them.

Why wouldn't she. She got what she worked for all those years. The first wife is gone. But I doubt she's the least bit sorry, she was ready to walk into Diana's Memorial SErvice until public opinion stopped her. I think she's the same greedy woman. She is hardly going to behave badly on appearances, she does the minimum in any case. She has no choice but to do the work. She did more than make mistakes, she deliberately hurt and undermined another woman. It was a lot more than "messy" their behavior was just plain nasty and sordid. Even with the HRH and the bling I don't care for her.

Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on December 19, 2016, 01:45:58 am
If they were "soul mates" Charles would have married her back then. I don't think he wanted to marry her and looked elsewhere for someone to marry and have his heirs.  It should be noted that they were "together" for years though married to other people. Charles was not exclusive with alleged "soul mate" he married another woman and he was involved with Janet Jenkins and Lady Kanga while he was "faithful" to Camilla. I think CHarles own soul mate is himself. I don't buy into the great love spin. Charles named Camilla publicly and became obligated to her after that.  Charles wanted to have his cake and eat it too. A decent man would walk away after the woman married someone else. And his bringing in a teenager he knew he did not love to marry and have his children was a disgrace. I think Charles is greedy and mean spirited. He deserves Camilla. Charles was always "together" with Camilla even though both were married to others. He is a selfish man who wanted it all and got it.

The thing is Charles told all to his biographer. He felt himself "not ready" to get married and moved on from Camilla until the time came (soon) to get involved with her again, although she was married. I see Charles as a very selfish man. Maybe he never found out "whatever love is."  Charles if he felt he preferred Camilla should not have married DIana. He just married her to get heirs. Why else would he have courted a teenage girl?  It was not as if Camilla was a sweetheart he had that he had not seen in years. And when his marriage to DIana was crumbling, he returned to Camilla. The thing is Camilla was always there even trying to befriend Lady DIana.

^^^^^You're entitle to your opinion Sandy, just like everyone. I truly feel sorry for Charles. I do not at all see greed. He is a man in a role that does not come easily to him. If he didn't feel ready to marry, who is to say that was wrong. He's probably not psychic and couldn't have predicted that Camilla would marry before he had a second chance. I think he is a good father to his sons and that says something, and bringing Camila into the Royal Family couldn't have been easy. Imagine how hard it is for Camilla to be in Diana's shadow. She can never live up. I really do not see people considering her a saint. Many people are aware of the past. In the end, though, people should probably follow their happiness and I think Charles and Camilla are happy together.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on December 19, 2016, 02:17:42 am
The thing is Charles was advised by Lord Mountbatten to sow his wild oats. Lord Mountbatten wanted Charles to marry Amanda, his granddaughter. While Amanda (who was not of age yet) grew up, Charles could get experience with Camilla and other ladies he would never marry and then come into a marriage with the inexperienced Amanda who would have had no experience. Mountbatten passed on and Charles proposed to Amanda who turned him down. But CHarles also knew Camilla was besotted with Andrew Parker Bowles, she was already an item with him when Charles met her. Andrew and Camilla had sort of a competition and cheated on each other, he got involved with Princess Anne shortly before she got involved with Prince Charles.  Charles would have had to be totally oblivious if he did not think Camilla would not marry Andrew Parker Bowles. Charles gave no indication that he saw Camilla as wife material and did not even tell her to wait for him.  Camilla certainly had contempt for Diana and I doubt felt in her shadow. She was playing hostess at Highgrove while Diana was still married to Charles. Charles named Camilla publicly which forced a divorce of the PBs. I do see people seeing her as a saint, Charles pays $$$ to spin doctors to promote her. And started the Camilla campaign while Diana was still alive. I still see Charles as egocentric and wanting to have it all. Plus there are other women that he considered marrying and Janet Jenkins said that she was involved with him while he was married to Diana with Camilla as his mistress. Charles caused much destruction. I think Diana was a good mother to her sons. Charles I think has a sense of entitlement which was a huge reason he felt it was OK for other men to share their wives with him. Lady Tryon was another married mistress. Wallis was Edward VIII's soul mate and Edward moved heaven and earth to marry her. Charles wanted to have it all, the wife, heirs, and mistress. That is not the stuff of great romance. IMO

I'll say this much.  As an experiment, I have given a small donation to all the major royal members' initiatives.  I have NEVER received a receipt or acknowledgement from any of Kate's nor William's nor Harry's.  The only individual who contacts me with updates that keep me involved/inspired and gives me a good feeling about my investment has been Camilla.  So, whether or not she's good/bad, she's got it right when it comes to what the BRF's main job is:  philanthropy and good will with donors.

The rest are subpar or not even close to being on target with how to hire proper staff for organized and positive/profitable stewardship.

And, for the record, I'm still waiting for a thank you acknowledgment for my wedding gift to Kate and William.

Camilla.  And it's constant!  Cheerful updates via email and in the mail, end-of-year clear to understand balance sheets, annual report, and they all mention the most important thing, "How thankful we are for your support".   So, I gave again this year. 

But, that's how you do it.  I even wrote to some of these other yahoos requesting a cold, easy-to-do emailed acknowledgment.  ZIPPO.

I'm glad to hear that Camilla (and Charles?) seems to be on top of things.

Maybe William thinks that because he likely won't be king for at least a couple decades, he doesn't have to care? But NOW is important... nobody knows how much time they have left. What if he gets in an accident and never gets to be king? Is this the legacy he wants to leave behind? All the people who are kids now and could use the help now? When he is king, people won't want to donate to his causes because he doesn't know how to manage a charity.

I wonder if there is someone we could write to about this? Charles? The Queen? They obviously need some help/don't know what they're doing.

^I already have.  Twice.  And I went to the top.  It's as if they don't care.  And it doesn't make sense.  I'll grant you that the support workers are probably more inclined to try and polish up Camilla's image perhaps but those same people then should also know that there's no resting on laurels in the fundraising game.  And they have, no doubt, seen that it works w/Camilla's patronages so I remain befuddled.

You can feel the arrogance thousands of miles away from that bunch.  I haven't given directly to any of PC's charities so can't speak to that but I should do that.  My guess would be that he'd be on top of that as well.  But, this isn't the thread for that.

What I can see, is that Camilla has actually taken time to craft the message; that's crystal clear.  She's been spending time sitting down with staff.  No one can convince me otherwise because included are pictures with comments by her and a cheerful "hello!".  It's Fundraising 101 but it's still effective.

William keeps disappointing. He was at the point of seemingly doing royal duties full time when the Queen had KP renovated but nothing came of it. Charles should start giving William additional duties as should the Queen. THere is no choice unless something happens, Charles and WIlliam are the next two rulers. I don't bother sending gifts to them.

^I absolutely agree.  The only reason I sent anything, and, trust me, it wasn't much, was a test to see how well-oiled their stewardship was and I was, unfortunately, very disappointed. 

Camilla's stuff, tho, guys, is super neat.  You get calendars, pamphlets with neat pictures, all kinds of stuff.  She, and her team, really goes at it and, most importantly, it works for the charities involved.

Where the others are not getting it, imho, is that it's not a display, it's not a chore, it's a privilege to serve.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on December 20, 2016, 02:33:20 am
The trouble is WIlliam had things handed to him, getting the ORder of the Garter, and other honors and did not have to work for them. His grandmother had mansions renovated for William and Kate but they did not have to work for this. Camilla had the training from the PR guru Mark Bolland. A pity that Charles did not put his sons through the rigorous training. WIlliam is the future of the monarchy and he just seems to sail through without even trying (even avoiding public speaking lessons which he sorely needs). WIlliam is not a teen anymore he's 34 with a wife and two children. A 'job' was created just for WIlliam so he could avoid full time duties. I don't get the pampering of him, he is a future King. The Bolland treatment should have been applied to WIll and Harry once  Bolland stopped working with Camilla.

Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on December 20, 2016, 02:53:21 am
I don't think Camilla is the right one to guide them considering their history. She needs to keep her own head above water and look out for herself. Bolland or someone really skilled at PR and etiquette should work with them. They could have a Lionel Logue type of mentor who works with them. Sometimes an outsider is needed rather than a relative. In this case, I think an outsider and a professional is sorely needed. WIlliam should start with speech training and maybe continuing education in various fields other than the geography he majored in after he dropped art history. I don't think quite honestly they will listen to Camilla considering her history with their mother. It would be like Anne Boleyn trying to mentor Mary Tudor, Henry's daughter.

Post by: YooperModerator on December 20, 2016, 03:09:56 am
^Good point.  Probably a lot of resentment and people tend to listen to "experts" vs family.  However, Camilla should be serving as an example of how it should be done and take 5 minutes to figure out how to do it better and get cracking with a PR firm that knows what they're doing because she's doing it right, they are not.

Who, for instance, would ever approve of any media stating that the Cambridges and Harry are looking forward to a vacation after working so hard?  It's laughable.  Say nothing instead.  Or else the DM is sticking it to them, which is more likely.

Charles paid more attention to Camilla's preparation than to William and Harry. He started the coaching of Camilla back in 1997, before Diana passed on. The Queen also seemed to just hand out honors to William without his having had to earn them. These two are now in their thirties, yes it is a shame that Charles and his mother did not make sure William and Harry had the best preparation. Camilla does not represent the future of the monarchy, she would most likely have a relatively short number of years as consort (and could very well retire). William and Harry are the future. Other than a 10 week farming course that William probably never completed, there has been seemingly little effort to get him ready.

If they were "soul mates" Charles would have married her back then.
Not true. Many peolpe marry just because money, loneliness, status and several other reasons. Charles himself married a woman who he didnt love and who he had no wish to have a 'real marriage' with, get 2 his heirs and led separate lives, was always his intention. Philip himself just married Liz becasue money. JFK just married Jackie because she was convenient to his political career. And many other cases out there. By all accounts, Camilla has always been madly in love with Andrew P-B.

I think Camilla has behaved herself very well since marrying Charles. The way they came together is complicated and messy, but in life, you fall, you make mistakes, and it's how you persevere and pull through that that shows what you are made of. As Cate said, punishment for transgressions is not up to us and we are asked to forgive anyway. PR or not, if you can't pull yourself together, it just doesn't work. Look at the rest of them.
I disagree. Their friendship with Penny Junor says nothing good of C-C. They obviously has no wish to let Diana rest in peace. To malign dead is big no no in my book.

I stand by my opinion on this--which is I don't think Charles and Camilla are "soulmates". But it does make Charles look reprehensible if this was his plan. Stephen Barry did report in his books that Diana said she  wanted "lots of children." Apparently Charles did not communicate with Diana on the number of children he wanted and expected. Maybe Camilla and APB were the soulmates but she I think  preferred the example of her great grandmother being a mistress of a Prince of Wales. I honestly don't think JFK even had a soulmate, he appreciated Jackie but he was basically a womanizer. But that's for another thread.

I agree with you about Junor who is said to be writing a biography of Camilla. I can only imagine what sort of awful things she will write about Diana. Recently there was a photo of Camilla and Penny giggling together at a party. Camilla must be having a field day.

Neither needed training, they needed to GROW UP and stop playing the dead mommy card. Both need to basically stop self indulging. Both should have been building their own foundation for their adult lives, just like everyone else. Harry and William should have been prepping for the future, not just skiving off at bars and clubs and basically indulging in every baggage creating gratification. Charles likely couldn't get through to them since it's obvious that they refuse to listen and see red flags and warning signs. The Diana issue aside, Charles did build a fabulous charitable organization for them to work on, but they refuse to step in and work on it and learn/grow, despite the reality that in their position, they still act like a bunch of spoiled teenagers. Charles is used to unquestioning obedience, obedience that was drilled into him and obedience that was something he grew up never challenging. He never went off during Christmas and 'did his own thing' and he NEVER was anything other than cooperative with the courtiers.

Post by: sandy on December 22, 2016, 03:17:48 pm
Charles appeared to be attempting to get William interested in the Duchy of Cornwall work which he would be inheriting. Aside from a photo op and a ten week course, which Will probably never completed, there has been little evidence of WIlliam training there. The problem was that WIlliam was treated with kid gloves so to speak when he went to Uni and did not have to work much as a royal and could do what he wanted except for photo ops here and there. The overcoddling did not do him any good. He should not have gotten the Order of the Garter until he earned it. Harry should have been given a slate of duties that he would be required to complete before he got vacations. It is sad now that the boys are in their thirties and many twenty somethings are more mature than they are. William even publicly whined about the big adjustment to marriage and children. That is so pathetic. The Queen should have done something early on and in cooperation with Charles TOLD not ASKED the boys to work.

I read in the paper this week, The Times or The Sunday Times, that the look this season is for colours to 'clash'. I think it means colours of the same basic undertones. There are two, blue toned clothes and yellow toned clothes. So I was taught.

Here Camilla has clashed colours in a way that is displeasing to the eye. As they, the coat and hat, do not have the same undertone and it looks horrendous. Really awful.

And she can't hide the fact that she smokes, nor probably liked to have a tan, which ages people. She does not look good or healthy, imo.

If she did not want this, she could have sent Charles home to his first wife. She has no remorse apparently for how she  behaved and is playing victim. I find her vile.

Charles spin just says that Camilla is "accepted" or "warmed up to" in the hope that some buy it. They both look rather ghoulish being so airbrushed in the Testino photo. He lost all his red color in his face and she has her wrinkles (or some) airbrushed out.

Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 21, 2017, 05:14:37 am
I get tired of the usual BS about a Crown being a burden; it is and to be honest, I sympathize, but modern royals need to stop whining about it and just understand that this is where God placed them. It's not just material advantages that they have, but the adoration of a nation. Love that kind of love is not given easily and yet they refuse to go where they can be a person, be who they really are. Lets face it, Charles didn't have heirs with Camilla since he thought Diana's lineage would bring him better connections and it did until each prince clearly decided to mess it all up. Camilla wouldn't have had him if he hadn't been a prince. In fact, neither would be with the other without status and clearly Charles didn't ever think Camilla was good enough to be a wife.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on July 21, 2017, 10:44:56 pm
Charles painted himself into a corner when he confessed he was involved with married Camilla. It forced a divorce and the father demanding that Charles "do something about it." I don't think he ever wanted to marry her. He just ponied up megabucks to weave the great love story, Junor (with most likely C and C's cooperation) raise Camilla to sainthood, she rescued him from mad bad wife. Laughably she castigates Diana for being "paranoic" about Camilla. then in her Camilla book she praises Camilla for "protecting Charles" from attentions of other women.

Ran across this today. Quite telling, indeed.  :bored: :laundry:

Quote
For an upcoming ITV and HBO documentary, William, 35, and his brother, Prince Harry, sat down to reflect on memories of their late mother, who died at the age of 36 in a car accident in Paris in August 1997. In the film, William explains that he's "constantly talking about Granny Diana" with his children, George, 4, and Charlotte, 2, whom he shares with Duchess Kate.

"We've got more photos up 'round the house now of her and we talk about her a bit and stuff," he explained. "It's hard because obviously Catherine didn't know her, so she cannot really provide that … level of detail. So, I do regularly, [when] putting George or Charlotte to bed, talk about her and just try to remind them that there are two grandmothers — there were two grandmothers — in their lives. It's important that they know who she was and that she existed."


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 24, 2017, 10:12:05 pm
According to Lady Colin Campbell, Camilla was just a friend with benefits and nothing more; I think this is the more accurate description and I do believe that Charles would have secretly wanted to remarry and have more suitable heirs that would bring better connections. Neither Laura or Tom have proven to be good or helpful and I'm certain that Charles would have probably dropped Camilla as Diana grew older if only certain things had been different. Charles should have learned from American politicians about the skills of first learning to live with a marriage of convenience and he could have also easily learned how to handle a pushy mistress.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on July 24, 2017, 11:00:39 pm
I think Charles is another wishy washy WIndsor male. I think Camilla had  and has manipulative skills that topped even Mrs Simpson. I think Charles could have married someone else had he not named Camilla as his married mistress. If he had kept his mouth shut, the PBs probably would have stayed in the marriage and divorced eventually but not because Charles publicly outed Camilla. William  and Harry would still have been senior heirs but his other children with a second wife might have provided royal connections with the daughters perhaps marrying princes from other European countries or well connected businessmen. The sons could have married well also. Charles should have not ditched Diana in the bedroom for the sake of satisfying his mistress. Camilla should not have been calling the shots, putting down the wife, and even cooperating with buddies like Penny Junor--I think Camilla really believes the hype


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 26, 2017, 02:21:28 am
I do think Charles should have waited until his sons were married and then married Camilla. Camilla was never going to leave him and it's not like Camilla was vital to the State; if in fact Charles had had more children with Diana there might be one last heir with the chance to pull the monarchy through. I can't get over how Charles clearly thinks so small believing that nothing would go wrong in his life that only two children would be needed.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: leogirl on July 26, 2017, 07:37:24 am
I don't think he should have married Camilla. Marrying a mistress is in poor taste, especially one who publicly destroyed his first marriage. It makes the monarchy look bad.

And not only that, Charles is not content just to have been able to marry her, he must "try" to have "everybody" adore her with his pals Junor and others raising Camilla to sainthood. So pathetic. He should not have married Camilla-he did say at first he would not remarry.

They only mention charles meddling in politics, but his son william already revealed several weeks ago that he also writes to politicians, it also states the queen meddles too, so assume we should take it that they all stick their beak into politics when it is to their advantage. .

Prince Andrew as we know also meddles in politics. So, if that is a good reason why chucky should not become king then the same applies to most of the rf really.

And what has been revealed so far of Charles's meddling isn't that scandalous tbh, I bet some other meddling (by all of them) is far more scandalous and reprehensible than the "spider letters". They are supposed to be neutral, doesn't mean they are (and who is?). No way are they all just watching. They can "advise", and what else is "advice" or a "suggestion" in many cases but actually an order.

They usually spend most of August - September at Birkhall on the Balmoral estate - where I believe they are now. The Greek break was the weekend or so before the Passchendaele anniversary as Charles flew from Greece to Scotland to Belgium, back to Scotland for some engagements and then back to Greece before returning to Scotland. Charles attended the Mey Games there on Tuesday.

Given the vitriole they face whenever they appear anywhere to do with Diana do you really blame them for not turning up to anything. Is anything public even planned that involves the family. I thought the princes had said no public commemoration this year which is why they did all those documentaries.

Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: sandy on September 06, 2017, 11:55:37 pm
Camilla was working  and keeping her mouth shut about anything personal. but there was a setback not because of the DIana memorial but because of her interview and Junor's overhyping Camilla and trashing Diana.  Junor's gushy book did no favors for Camilla even calling her the savior of the monarchy. Of course Camilla will be consort but not everybody has to like her or how she got where she is. Charles is not popular with everybody either. Smith wrote a biography of him and even though it was pro Charles it did make him look bad.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: HRHOlya on September 07, 2017, 12:06:43 am
The hilarity & irony is, they were on the way to acceptance. Camilla built a pretty good image and whilst most were still against her (being queen), people started to mellow. Then they blew it with the Junor bs in the past months. The pitchforks came out again and ratings plummeted back down, for both: C&C.

Ultimately, acceptance for (queen) Camilla is impossible to attain. But they were on a good path and then srewed themselves over.
I think at some point a public apology would have been good, but it's way too late now and at no point would anyone have believed it. Her only way would have been to grovel to Diana through the papers; impossible even had Diana not died, unless some miracle happened and they made peace. Diana is essential in public acceptance for Camilla, esp if an apology were to be involved, but alas, the Windsors royally screwed themselves over too. They did the Junor bs and boom, Diana put them back down in popularity.
She can't disappear, that would have worked had they not married. Alas, Charles had to "make and honest woman" out of Camz (*snorts with laughter*), so taxpayers will never allow for Camz to just trot off and live it up in the countryside.

Basically, it's impossible to attain. Again, I can't get over that they were on a good way to some acceptance and then shot themselves spectacularly in the foot! How dumb can someone be? The Windsors, all of them, born and married in, show time and time again that they have not been blessed with brain, at all!

Myleen's not the only one. There was a very strange photo taken during the Spanish State visit of the four, Felipe, Cam, Charles and Leti standing together and Charles pushing his face very very near to Letizia's. Felipe, Camilla and Leti looked bemused. Or maybe he was just trying to be funny. Willy has inherited his talent for weak jokes from Dad.

Prince Charles claimed fox hunting was “romantic” as he tried to persuade Tony Blair not to ban the cruel bloodsport

The royal lobbied the then Prime Minister not to outlaw the countryside pastime in a 2002 letter

 Prince Charles claimed fox hunting was “romantic” as he tried to persuade Tony Blair not to ban the cruel bloodsport.

The royal lobbied the then Prime Minister not to outlaw the countryside pastime in a 2002 letter.

But the Hunting Act 2004 became law in February 2005 and chasing wild mammals, including foxes, with hounds has bene illegal ever since.

Released to the Mail on Sunday under freedom of information rules, Charles’ letter said: “There is ... complete bewilderment that the Government is apparently responding to calls to ban something which is genuinely environmentally friendly, which uses no modern technology, which does not pollute the countryside, which is completely natural - in that it relies entirely on man’s ancient and, indeed, romantic relationship with dogs and horses.”

He also suggested the fight waged by animal rights activists to ban hunting was motivated by class war.

Royal family facing turmoil if Prince Charles replaces Queen as public reveals feelings
Quote
“While the royal family are likely to conform to the traditional order of succession, it is likely they will continue to use the respective popularity of Prince William, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Cambridge to ensure the monarchy’s overarching relevance with the UK public.”
The lack of enthusiasm for the Royal family may have been sparked by the anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, which occurred 20 years ago in August.

And the royals have faced a week of controversy over investments in overseas tax havens, after the Paradise Papers leak.
Polling firm Opinium Research, who surveyed 2,500 UK adults online between Tuesday and Thursday, also found the lowest level of support for the institution of British monarchy than at any point in the last two years.

Well Charles messed up a long time ago with mistreating Diana and marrying Camilla. Having Harry attached to an unsuitable woman and using her to try and make Waity look good has backfired because they're very similar.  I really don't believe that people would want Wills to succeed the queen. He's showed that he lacks good judgment because he did end up years with that vacuous Waity and foolishly ended up marrying her and is now living a massive lie with a time bomb ticking that will ruin the House of Windsor if the truth comes out imo.

If Charles wanted the married woman so much. Then he should not have married at all, and continued the liaison with Camilla, the Queen (who knew about Camilla) should have not allowed Charles to marry and unless, he gave up Camilla for good, insisted that Andrew be the next heir. I think Charles then might have ditched Camilla because he craves the power of getting himself on that throne.

Prince Charles suggested 'influx of foreign Jews' was partly to blame for Middle East unrest and asked who will take on 'Jewish lobby' in America in letter to close friend

    A letter penned by Prince Charles in 1986 reveals his views on the Middle East
    The letter was written to his mentor, the Afrikaner explorer Laurens van der Post
    He argues that the exodus of European Jews helped cause unrest in the region
    He also writes his hopes that the 'American Jewish lobby'will be stood up to
    'Jewish lobby' is considered by some to be an anti-Semitic term, often criticised
    But Charles has always had a good relationship with the UK Jewish community

Unlike the Duke of Windsor, Charles got to have his cake and eat it too. He even got the heirs from the suitable girl. I think if it had come right down to it, he would have sacrificed Camilla. Charles did not move heaven and earth to marry Camilla way back when. He saw her as the mistress. The Duke of Windsor once he found Wallis did not even think of marrying someone else to get heirs and did not "sow wild oats" with others once he met her.

Charles had to make sure his marriage to Camilla would not mean giving anything up. The man got to have his cake and eat it too.

I am not so sold on the Great Love Story. Since Charles saw many women in addition to Camilla. He was serious about marrying some of them. And he cheated on Camilla with Janet Jenkins. Camilla was the last woman standing plus she had the added perk of Charles actually naming her. I think he became obligated then.

I think Camilla was threatened by Anna and deliberately put on a show with Charles. She posed as the "mother hen" type with Lady Diana.

According to one book I read, Charles begged Anna not to break up with him. She said no.

The Queen Mum did not consider Camilla a threat when she was "safely" married. when she got the divorce the Queen Mum stopped receiving her.


Title: Re: Charles & Camilla: News and Photos III
Post by: HRHOlya on November 13, 2017, 03:38:50 pm
^ The queen mum was really weird and this just shows it, imo she was extremely hypocritical. "Morals" applying one way when married and another when not. Either it's ok for everyone to cheat or it isn't. You can't possibly find a mistress "acceptable" when she's married and then not when she divorces or find your offspring may dip his wick in anything but his wife cannot. I detest duplicity with all my might, seriously. And as if a married woman "is no threat", marriages can dissolve and we all know how Camilla's ended. Queen mum sure had to eat her hat, she lost that bet, big time. And how can you "receive" someone for ages (which means she liked Camz, why else put up with someone's company if you don't like them) and then suddenly refuse to see her just because of her divorce for which btw Charles was at fault. The crone sure was a good friend, not.

The "great C&C love" the C&C sugars go on and on about, I don't see it. Why hurt someone you love so much all their life? Then again C&C are really odd. Camilla didn't want to marry Charles anyway, she was all over the catch of her generation: not Chuck, but APB. He was for her and her set the "real" trophy. Maybe C&C are meant to be after all. Certainly spares other men & women of having them as their spouse. Maybe it's a great love in their sense :dontknow:

Seems like Camilla ruined every single relationship Chuck ever had with any woman. She should have married him when she could. Those two really have no morals or conscience. Despicable.

Then they wonder why no one likes them. They are all a terrible lot. It's amazing. And it just goes on and on from generation to generation, no end in sight.  :-
Any person wanting to marry into that family should have their sanity checked.

The Queen Mum did not consider Camilla a threat when she was "safely" married. when she got the divorce the Queen Mum stopped receiving her.

Charles has (his own) free will like any human being out there. He spent that night dancing with Camilla because he wanted to. He did the same (dancing with Camilla) at a party at his wedding's eve and Diana was seen crying in this same wedding eve party (Sarah Bradford reported that in her book).

BTW according to all sources I read Charles deliberately put on a show with Camilla in that party. And Anna told him so

"The "great C&C love" the C&C sugars go on and on about, I don't see it. Why hurt someone you love so much all their life? Then again C&C are really odd.

Oh no, I am not absolving Charles. But Camilla put on the mother hen act with Diana. She wanted to see off Anna IMO so she danced the night away with Charles. Charles went along with it even though he professed he wanted Anna back (according to one biography I read). But both Charles and Camilla were willing participants that night. Charles used to practically make love with Camilla on the dance floor right in front of APB.

Anna made a lucky escape, she was not engaged to Charles and ditched him.

I think Camilla did want most of what Diana had and the spin that she did not want anything is a lot of rubbish.
