therefore the succession should be changed and Harry should be on the throne as soon as Charles becomes king. not that Harry is perfect for king but he at least understands the meaning of royal duty. is there a way to do it without a whole bunch of people dying  before that?

She's Carole 2.0, showing nipples & not wearing the right bra.

When the Caribbean tour was still on the table, I had said she would use it to show off her cleavage again & her bounced back body. Guess she's still going ahead with that plan. Hopefully the next step is not a nip slip  Embarrassed

YOu have a point. With Daddy ranting about the "weight of duty" and work is "bad" the kid may be seriously messed up

I don't have much hope for George. Look at who his parents are.  sob

I think this is all on William. I think that interview about the "weight of duty" was downright embarrassing

^Yes, Diana's struggles were played out in a more liberated time for women, but to be fair, Diana married into an archaic institution where she was always going to be the broodmare and an unequal partner. Surely there is no way Diana went into the marriage thinking that it would be an easy happily ever after. IMO, she should never have used the press as a means to punish Charles by turning the public against him when things went wrong. Other wives/consorts have had to put up with the same or worse behavior and haven't retaliated in the vindictive way Diana did.  Look at Silvia of Sweden, for instance. Her husband has certainly not been faithful to her but she hasn't discussed it with the press. Of course I think Charles shouldn't have cheated on Diana, but IMO she was thinking of no one but herself when she went to the press. IMO, Diana had serious mental issues and we are seeing them play out in William.

If Charles wanted this sort of marriage, he should have spelled it all out ahead of time before he proposed to Diana. Even have her sign a pre-nup and once she agreed to the terms then she'd have to keep her part of the bargain. Some women might have agreed just to be set for life. Charles friends did use the press first, leaking stories about Diana. Camilla going to the Sun Editor for ten years. Diana did not have "serious mental issues." I think Charles was dysfunctional in his outlook on marriage and women and his own sense of entitlement. HE ended up having his cake and eating it too. Camilla should have known her place as mistress--but she had ambitions, even usurping the wife's place as hostess and trashing the wife. Charles emotionally abused Diana for years--humiliating her even in public. Some women would have done a lot worse than Diana did to get even.

That said. WIlliam is responsible for his own actions now, he is not a baby anymore that can blame Mom and Dad. He's a 34 year old who seems to be in arrested development, not wanting to work and blaming granny for not giving him work and he's waiting for it. No matter what Charles and Diana did or didn't do, this is all on William.

Sorry Yooper I posted this before I saw the message.

But I do think the succession is in crisis. I think at this stage George is the only hope.

I recall how writers thought William was the "best hope" for the monarchy. ANd look how that turned out

I fully agree with all of you.  Harry honors his mother's memory, William wallows in it.  Huge difference in mental and emotional health and it shows.

^Kate's way past that.  At this point, she needs the Wizard of Oz.
