Probably Michael Fawcett attended. Camilla's ex attended as well. But this was not a royal funeral and it was not just Camilla's loss and she was focuses on--there were Shands an Parker Bowleses who all  all suffered a loss.

He also made sure there were close ups of his holding hands with her. So some of those who buy the spin in the comments were gushing about how much Charles loves her and this is so beautiful and Camilla's crying. I think Camilla is very cynical at heart--and had not public opinion stopped her she would have worked up some tears had she attended the 2007 Diana Memorial Service.After all she was only trying to "help" Diana, etc etc.  How C and C really feel about each other is subject to speculation but I think she is ecstatic that she got all the things Diana once had. And Charles had to try to whitewash the sordidness of their affair. Camilla was obviously upset by her brother's death but what bothered me was making the service about HER and it was all from her point of view not the rest of Shand's family. And I do think Charles is cynical enough to try to make this an "opportunity" for the people to view himself and Camilla as being "human". He is in their pitching all the time. And the low point was last year when an article in the DM said the Queen was "faltering" and even though Camilla looks older than the Queen making it seem how much less "faltering" he and Camilla are.

Charles lost me when he tried to play "widower" to Diana after he treated her like dirt when she was still alive. And then sat back and watched the posthumous bashing of Diana that he himself condoned, in any case he never made Diana "non-negotiable" like he did with Camilla.

Charles is bumbling along trying to make Camilla be "warmed to." And spent money. But he needs to face facts that not everybody is going to "adore" Camilla to put it mildly.

^ I agree. I saw photos of the funeral and had similar thoughts. I'm sorry their loss, but I don't have any respect for either C or C. That public show of emotion was solely for the press in my opinion.
