Well it's nice to see that it looks like there are no more family squabbles.

From Hello!



The Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips rang in the first day of 2004 indulging in one of her favourite pastimes – equestrian pursuits.

However, the skilled horsewoman was on the sidelines this time round, as she cheered on her favourites at the Cheltenham racecourse.

And it seemed to be a happy new year for the 22-year-old royal, who showed off her smile throughout the event. Fashionable Zara was keeping stylishly warm, playfully hiding her million-watt grin behind a trendy striped scarf which she had wrapped snugly around her neck.

I love that scarf!

Another one from Hello!


Prince Charles and Princess Anne have been named as the hardest-working members of the Royal Family, after undertaking over 600 official engagements each in 2003. Charles turned out for 494 events in Britain, beating both the Queen and his younger sister. But with foreign events taken into account, the Princess Royal leads the field, clocking up a staggering 624 appearances, compared to Charles' 604.

As the figurehead for a number of international charities, Anne generally has more foreign duties than the rest of the Windsors. In 2003, these included a two-week trip to America and Mexico in her capacity as President of Save The Children.

The Prince of Wales was also busy, though most of his duties were closer to home. It is well-known Charles often goes without lunch, as he prefers to attend three engagements a day whenever possible.

Despite giving birth to her first child, Sophie Wessex made a respectable showing, with 179 official engagements. So did her husband Prince Edward, who turned out for 412 events. Meanwhile the Duke of Edinburgh had 456 outings. They were both outdone by the Queen, however, as Her Majesty chalked up a total of 478 appearances.

Buckingham Palace brightens up London

2 JANUARY 2004
Though the Queen was not at home to enjoy it, Buckingham Palace was awash in celebratory colours on Thursday, with an illumination carrying a message wishing everyone a Happy New Year for 2004.

The gesture is part of the "Brightening Up London" project, backed by celebrities such as Bob Geldof, which also saw the Palace wrapped in patterns ranging from a giant Union Jack to festive dots over the holiday season.

"The Queen was impressed by Bob Geldof's 'Peace And Hope' message project on to Wellington Arch and gave the go-ahead for the Palace to be lit up… The whole thing has been a great success and very popular with the public," said a Palace spokesperson.

Nine of London's landmark buildings, including the Tate Britain, National Theatre and Imperial War Museum, are also part of the campaign, which kicked off on Christmas Eve.

Last week, the historic building was "wrapped" in the Union Jack, to celebrate the festive season

Well, in those days it was more a matter of strenght to keep the crown from your enemies than about irregularities around your birth. Besides as long as the parents were married, no matter the distance, any offspring produced by the wife was automatically given the name of the husband. (Of course this could provide some problems within the marriage, but legal technicalities seems to be ok, as long as they were married.)

And it's a crazy story. It's like someone trying to dig out the line of the rightful heir to the Norwegian throne, who had more rights than Queen Margrethe to it.

From the Daily Mirror..

DIANA'S LETTER: IT WAS CHARLES

Jan 6 2004

EXCLUSIVE

By Jane Kerr, Royal Reporter


PRINCE Charles is the person Princess Diana claimed in a letter wanted to kill her, the Mirror sensationally reveals today.

Before she died in a car crash, Diana wrote: "My husband is planning 'an accident' in my car, brake failure and serious head injury...to make the path clear for him to marry."

She gave the note to butler Paul Burrell who revealed its existence in the Mirror last year. Charles's name was blanked out. Burrell has been asked to hand the document to the coroner who today opens the inquest into Diana's death.

Burrell said: "It has fulfilled its purpose. I wanted to give force to the argument that an inquest must be held."

Can't help but feel sorry for Charles - it's just what he doesn't need!

Those poor men! I realize Diana's death was very tragic and every person in the world knew of it at the time, but for goodness sake let the poor women rest in peace! The inquest is just wrong, the accident (yes accident, they do happen), occured years ago!

The last thing William and Harry need is someone reporting that their mother believed their father was trying to kill her. The one thing I have to say for Burrell (the scum that I believe he is), at least he was smart enough to realize revealing this name would do the most damage of all.

I sincerely believe that at some point Charles loved Diana. And, although they divorced and fought, in the end he had respect for the mother of his beloved children.

Breaking News this morning
Inquest into Diana's death adjourned and Police Investigation Launched.
Wow what have they found????

Who can say Charles is innocent for sure? I suspect his wife knew him better than anyone. Murder is not something to just sweep under the rug and move on.

Her driver was drunk and she was not wearing a seat belt. The murderer (the driver) is dead. This has nothing to do with Charles. I don't love the guy, but to imply he murdered the mother of his beloved children is sick.

I think the Inquest is horrible all around. When Diana died there was already a big investigation into why and how the accident occured. Ordering an inquest would only open old wounds for William and Harry and Diana's family. And now to declare that Diana wrote that Charles was the one who was planning her accident and on having her killed -- how horrible it is for their sons. Not only is their mother gone and not only is the reason why she died open again but now their father is being accused of it.

Can't we just accept the initial investigation findings and resolve that her death was an accident and let her rest in peace and her sons and family, too?

Is there something wrong with wanting the truth? If my mother was murdered, I'd want to know why and who. I would not want to just forget it.

You look at any family response to the murder of a close. loved relative, and they never want to just forget it and move on before they know the truth.

Don't believe everything you read.

Many men murder the mother of their beloved children. The husband/father is always the first suspect in police investigations into such "accidents" of a mother, and this isn't for no reason.

Once there is a reasonable explanation for why it is an accident, people will move on in a heartbeat.

In the meantime, there are too many ahh, weird circumstances.

Prince Charles, Camilla and other were counting on the fact that people would just move on, and let it go. If all else failed, who wants to be labelled a "conspiracy nut"?

They want her image forgotten. That is far more important than forgetting about whether or not she was murdered. They don't want anyone to remember her face or what she looked like, or what she said, or what she did.

Just let it go, move on. Who cares? Nobody?
