It's time we stopped insulting the Duchess of Cornwall
There is no logic, but much spite, in the way we treat the Prince of Wales's wife, writes Simon Heffer.

Quote
For the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, things are more complicated. From the way the Prince is treated, anyone would think he had applied for his present position and – having seen off other, more worthy contenders for the post – chosen to do it in a way that consciously disobliged the public. He enjoyed a reasonable rapport with the rest of the world when a young man, doing a stint in the Royal Navy, and benefiting from the last reserves of residual deference. He was acclaimed for marrying a beautiful and glamorous young woman. He then became rather outmoded when she eclipsed him, and when it was learnt that all was not well in their marriage, he was accorded the blame. It is, it seems, quite in order for the rest of us to make judgments about the intimate affairs of people whom we do not know at all, while we so often choose not to make them about those we know exceptionally well.

People haven't just suddenly lost their memories, and forgot what she did. She'll NEVER live that down, ever. Camilla will continue to be insulted during and after her days on this earth. When she dies, and it makes headline news, the first thing the press will bring up is, "Well, there were three of us in this marriage..."!

I agree with you all, completely, but now that we have Waity on the scene ...  hall-whistle

On the other hand, Camilla is most likely the reason that Waity is on the scene at all.  pc-problem  help

NO, I would say that Camilla isn't the sole reason. Diana played her part, along with Fergie.

It does take two to tango after all... neither Di, Charlie nor Cammi are innocent angels in that muddy part of history!
