Hm, I don't like Camilla's hat but otherwise it works. Its not that unusual for Camilla and Diana to wear the same color combinations - they have similar coloring.

I'm sure if someone looks hard enough they can find something Camilla does or wears that is similar to something that Diana did once but that is carrying things a bit too far.

The Archbishop of Canterbury should remember his place. He is in service to the Sovereign and her family. I wrote to him and told him exactly what I thought of his behaviour with regard to the Charles and Camilla situation - needless to say, he didn't care to reply. It is not for him to be angry or ecstatic. Why they didn't get someone else to perform the blessing I'll never know. How dare he. And it isn't for him to forgive the Prince of Wales - the insolence and disobedience of the man is quite unbelievable! Rome wouldn't have been so rude.

Camilla is not out there to copy Diana. My mother has worn that color combo. Is Camilla trying to be like my mother. If Camilla tip toed around what she wore so she wouldnt wear the colors Diana did she would have to walk naked. Come one grow up. I doubt the Archbishop said that. I havent heard of an argument between the archbishop and charles.

Yes it is a direct quote. Richard Kaye from the Daily Mail newspaper reported the Archbishop's response about the union six months on this month. Rowan Williams seems bitterly angry towards Charles with regards to the whole event

ok, forgets my post. I understood myself, I hope camilla never tries to copy diana, and she not return to use a diana's jewel again. But this is a very long history.

The Prince is wearing the GCB badge around his neck while his Order of Merit is attached to his... how do you say it in English, lanyard? It's an unusual order of wear for OM, I think.

I think the colours of Camilla's outfit were probably chosen to complement Charles's uniform and Garter sash - nothing more mysterious than that.

The Archbishop is NOT there as a puppet of the English Monarch. He is the senior clergyman of a Church that represents millions of parishoners around the world and would be doing his position a diservice if he did not speak out against a situation he found unethical.

I don't believe the Archbishop of Canterbury would have said that even if he did feel these sentiments. It makes the Archbishop look like he's been duped if its true and that's hardly the impression the leader of the Church of England wants to make in front of his bishops and clergy. He's not that politically naive. If he had had any real problems with the marriage, I'm sure he wouldn't have done the blessing at all.

Don't make me have to split this thread and start moving posts around; it's a bloody pain.

Let's please get this thread back on topic; the discussion about the Archbishop can go on elsewhere - preferably in the Charles-Camilla forum.

Do you think that we will see Camilla in a tiara for the state visit of the Norwegian Royals? I wonder which one she will wear?
Does anybody know if the Duke of York will ever get the garter or the Royal Victorian order that Prince Michael was wearing at the Trafalger ceremonies yesterday?
Thanks,
Linda 85

It seems to be fairly certain that she'll be wearing a tiara, although there's hot discussion about which tiara it'll be.

The Duke of York will probably get the Garter eventually. Both the Duke of Kent and the Duke of Gloucester have it, and they're grandsons of a king, not sons like the Duke of York.

Or perhaps the Church should grow up and recognize that human relationships are more complicated than their out of dates rules allow. I thought it was particularly mean of the Archbishop not to allow them to marry in church.

That's a great role model of Christian charity from the Archbishop!

Yes...that is why he grew the beard. :)

They really look up to Prince Michael in Russia when he visits.

Indeed the outfit of the Duchess of Cornwall looked splendid yesterday, very elegant and stylish, I really liked this outfit and its colour combination!

Princess Michael also looked very elegant, and at the harm of the dashing Prince Michael - they certainly were a most handsome couple!

I must say that it felt a bit strange though to see them all together, and not having the Queen there at the top knotch leading the way. That would've made this service even more special, but Her Majesty surely had other things to do. And she did attend the 200th anniversary in Portsmouth.
