It is really nice to see how Camilla turned out to be a perfect wife for Charles. She is not Diana and she is not young and beautiful, but she is apporachable, humourous and warm. The most important thing is that she can make Charles happy. I love them!
It was very surprised to hear the news of their engagement. I was on tour and I learnt the news from CNN channel in the hotel. No one knows whether Charles and Camilla could get married finally, but they did it. Such a joy!

I really enjoy reading everyones first thoughts after the announcement of the engagement. When I first heard about it on TV news that day I was surprised and relieved that this finally could happen. And it was the initializing act to start my interest in them.

Maybe this topic is worth a thread of its own: "How do you first learned about the upcoming wedding and what were your thoughts about that?"

But then I am only 19 and don't drink alcohol that often, except for some special occassions, like Birthday, Christmas, New Year, St. Valentine's Day, Charles and Camilla's engagement and wedding...:) :)

Just some headlines regarding Charles and Camilla. The Queen apparently is going to make Camilla a Colonel in Chief.

Charles and Camilla are supposedly setting up home in Scotland.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4594054.stm

I expect the full articles will be online tomorrow but, as yet I have been unable to find the full story, perhaps someone else has!

I feel so sorry for Charles and I hope this ruins her!!! What an absolute betrayal, I shouldn't think she will ever work as a ps again.

Thanks for the links, Skydragon. Is the Scottish Daily Express that reliable?

On Charles' secretary selling his diaries to the Daily Mail, I'm glad he's pursuing the matter in court but I think its a little obssessive to ask everyone he's written to in the last 20 years to return his letters. The leak apparently didn't come from a friend but from a disgruntled employee. Charles should be paying more attention to his staff IMHO.

I honestly don't know about the Scottish Daily Express, that's why I put apparently. IMO some of the Scottish papers are worse than the English ones for inventing stories to grab a few extra readers.

I think the demand for the return of his letters is a knee jerk reaction, I don't think he 'trusts' easily, be it friends or staff and this must be, to him, a real stab in the back.
As for her dismissal being down to Camilla, there will be some who will believe it because they want to believe the worst of her, but it is more likely that her work wasn't up to scratch and her office conduct, had become too forward with other male civil servants to continue to be tolerated.

Well if she wanted to get back at Charles for sacking her, she must have been disappointed that the diaries caused so little comment. They didn't really hurt him that much, though I can understand him tightening things up to prevent such a thing from happening again.

If she thought her dismissal was unfair, she would have claimed 'unfair dismissal' at the first opportunity.

I hope the Mail is stopped from publishing, permanently, his private journals and has to pay massive amounts to charity, as compensation.

The only thing wrong with this article is their 'shock, horror' that OC's were seen strolling aroung the grounds with their SA80's. What do they think they do, leave them in the cupboard and use handbags instead?

To ask for all one's letters back seems odd; after all, a person could copy them before returning IF the content were what was important and what Charles did not want to get out. I mean, as a Royal, you can't isolate yourself from the world and you have to trust someone--even if you are occasionally badly let down.

Will Camilla be hanging onto her house? Perhaps one of her children would want to live there....like her daughter who is marrying soon.

I think her daughter will move into her future husbands house. He is the heir to the family seat and will be a laird when the time comes. I dont know what will happen to Camillas house. It might just be a getaway for all present and former members of the Parker-Bowles clan.

When a Member of the Royal Family dies, all his or her correspondance is sent to Windsor for the archives. Letters that have been sent to people are kept and the Royal Family know that one day they'll be sold - so I doubt they would put anything in that would shock or reveal anything.

Do you think it's because funerals are arranged a lot quicker, so I don't suppose they had much time to let publish any details and of course the security aspect would have been a factor.

Funeral arrangements are made years in advance and then tweaked every now and again so when it happens they run like a well-oiled machine.

That is why each member of the RF ALWAYS travels with mourning clothes so if another member dies....when they return to Britain they are appropriately dressed.

Such was the case when QEII was in Africa when her father passed...she got of the plane dressed in black.

Well, yes, but they can't arrange the timing years in advance even if they can arrange other details. Muslim funerals are conducted much sooner after death than ones in the west, so the decision of who to send to this funeral may not have been made until shortly before it happened.
