There was a fairly recent photo of Charles and Camilla with one (or two?) of her grandchildren at some event.  Tom has benefitted from "Sir" being his stepfather and uses him and "Mum" to promote his cookbooks.  Charles named Camilla as his mistress in 1994, her father confronted him, her husband divorced her. Charles started spending megabucks on her promotion in 1997 (before Diana died) so I think he felt 'obligated.' The trouble was he knew he had to wait because his grandmother did not want her to marry Camilla in her lifetime.

Is this the image?

From the Ballater Highland Games - suggesting they were staying at Charles' home on the Balmoral Estate, Birkhall.

I am not sure how this discussion is linked to the topic of the thread....?

I think it because the Spectator article about Charles mentioned that Camilla's children and grandchildren are not on royal property or something to that effect

I thought it was that whatever Charles wants, Charles gets, despite his vows and promises to the contrary.

When there was an article about chucky revamping the play house/tree house/ in the garden at High Grove for the medd sprogs, originally made for bill and haza, it was revealed, much to their chagrin I imagine, that in fact it was actually revamped for camzilla´s children, when they visit High Grove, which allegedly is often.

Chucky can't abide most humans from what I've seen.

Would not the continuity of Prince Charles' work be clearer if he reigned as King Charles III instead of George VII?

He may perceive Charles as an unlucky name - Charles I lost his head, Charles II converted to Catholicism on his deathbed.

He may like the idea of continuing the Georges  too.

I think it would seem pretentious if he became George after years and years of being Charles. I think he'd still be called Charles.

Let Charles Philip be Charles III. He need not be compared to Charles I and Charles II.

^ Especially since it's been 350 years since Charles II's reign. It's not like it's a recent memory.

It will also be the first time in history in over 350 years when a mistress successfully destroyed a royal marriage and got crowned. I still believe that if Camilla is crowned it will be the END of the monarchy. It was tolerated with Henry VIII since he had absolute power, but this has no backup. No PR will clean her up and I don't believe that she's going to end up genuinely respected and this might damage everything.

When Charles is King, will he have a major say in what music is performed at his coronation?

WHo knows; realistically, he clearly will, but I think he's determinedly setting the ground for a more autocratic monarchy that seeps into government influence and control.

Yes - unless the music has 'always' been played - i.e. it has been played since around the 1820s - he will be able to choose what he wants.

Would Charles be able to have a musical composition he composed played?
