seems a bit too dramatic - people had strong feelings then but assassinate?  Over the top reaction from Charles.

Who would assassinate him? And it was Diana's funeral, why was it about him? Why was he walking with Diana's brother and sons? They were divorced and it was not amicable at all. He should not have gone, and if he felt he must go, he should have stayed in the back. No need to draw attention to himself.

Well, obviously, I would not want Charles to be assassinated (and why would he even think that a possibility unless the RF believed Diana was assassinated?), but he deserved to be given a hard time.  Both on a personal level and because of the damage he did to the monarchy.

Was he not put between his children in the funeral? There was a real fear that he would be attacked in some way, I remember reading this but do not remember where.

  William and Harry were put there to protect Charles and Philip.  There was a lot of anger about their treatment of Diana.  There still is.

^ IMO very odd. Charles and Philip... was it supposed to be some kind of a royal funeral having those two on display? Were we supposed to forget they were divorced?  Lips Sealed

Charles Spencer wanted to walk behind the coffin alone. There were quite a lot of debates between Charles Spencer and his sisters and Prince Charles and BRF officials beforehand, (the Spencers originally wanted a small private funeral but the country didn't want that.) Diana's funeral in the end turned into a semi-Royal affair, as she was the mother of a future king. Charles had gone over to Paris to collect Diana's body with her sisters, and decided to walk as a mark of respect and to support his sons. William didn't want to walk in the procession but Prince Philip warned him he might regret it later. He asked him if he would walk if he himself did, and William said he would. That's the reason Prince Philip was there.

Charles did not respect Diana when she was alive, I always saw this as an empty gesture. To accompany the boys, fine but as a gesture of "respect" I doubt it. Charles was reportedly avid to have Camilla go with him to the 2007 Diana Memorial Service which to me shows his hypocrisy.

He should have been worried. Everyone knows that he and his father were behind Diana's death.

During the grieving period, Camilla allegedly had a police officer guarding her home, right at the very doors of the house to protect her.

I don't think this is crazy/drama talk at all.  Charles, Camilla and Co were absolutely loathed beyond reason at that time of international mourning.

And they are still loathed or disliked by some. SOme may not care, some think having the HRH erases everything and some trash Diana. I think the two have a lot to answer for and are not the least bit sorry.
