Charles and Camilla at flower show

The Prince of Wales has visited the Sandringham Flower Show with Camilla Parker Bowles.

It is the second year running Mrs Parker Bowles has accompanied the Prince to the event.

It is held in the grounds of the Queen's residence at Sandringham, Norfolk.

Traditionally the Queen Mother and the Prince toured the showground.

Some eyebrows were raised last year when Charles invited Mrs Parker Bowles to join him following the Queen Mother's death.

The couple arrived together but noticeably kept their distance as they began to tour the showground.

Mrs Parker Bowles stood 20 yards away from the Prince as he was introduced to the show's committee members on arrival.

Twice in the last couple of days I've heard Charles referred to as a "widower".

The dictionary states that a widower is "A man whose wife has died and who has not remarried." Since Charles was no longer married to Diana at the time of her death, then this means he can't be a widower.

Could his camp be throwing this term around to soften up the public on a marriage?

No! Prince Charles is divorces from Princess Diana but i dont think so he widow or not he bring Diana's body from Paris, France after Diana's crash in Paris, France but Prince Charles bring her home to London, England for her bury in Althorp.

I dont think so he widow! he divorces from Princess Diana in 1996 you know best!

I belive Charles and Diana's divorce was a civil law one, meaning in the eyes of the church they were married in, The Church of England, they were still married.So when Diana died, in the eyes of the church Charles become a widower.

I don't believe that Prince Charles is a widower for one second. A divorce proves that people don't want to be married anymore. Charles and Diana were divorced! Charles obviously didn't love Diana. He just used her so that he could have heirs to his (future) throne. After William and Harry were born problems began arising in the Royal marriage. Charles was back with CAMILLA. Well that is to say he never LEFT her. His relationship with her became even more public than it was. But of course Charles wasn't the only one to blame for the breakdown of the marriage, he is just the one we point the finger at. Diana also had extra-marital affairs. But as for Charles being a widower, IF YOU AREN'T MARRIED YOUR NOT A WIDOWER (or a widow).

Wouldn't the idea of Charles as a widower make a marriage to Camilla a little easier than a divorc'e?

Also I'm wondering if this sudden widow status has anything to do with Charles wanting to share a more public life with Camilla, maybe the powers that be feel this will ease some of the tension between Camila's relationship with the public... who knows at this point..

I think you're right raven. The "widower" term sort of softens his image.

If Andrew Parker-Bowles died would Charles then be free to marry Camilla? I'm not a fan of hers and I'm not wishing her to be queen. I just wondered.

The Prince of Wales visits the Museum of Welsh Life in St.Fagans, where he viewed work on the reconstruction of St. Telio's Church, visited the attractions on site and opened the new Italian garden.

Huge erection causes blushes on the eve of Royal visit

A giant statue of a naked man with a two-foot erection has caused a row in Salzburg after it was unveiled on the eve of a visit by Prince Charles.



Salzburg's mayor Heinz Schaden said he was horrified when he realised what the artwork comprised.

He said it would be impossible for Prince Charles to avoid seeing the figure when he arrives in the city and wants it taken down immediately.

Mr Schaden said: "No-one asked me or my office for permission to put this up, and if they had, we would have said no.

"I can't stress strongly enough how totally tasteless this is, and have demanded immediately that those responsible take it down."



Called Arc de Triomphe, the statue by artists Ali Janka, Wolfgang Gantner, Tobias Urban and Florian Reither shows a naked man bending over backwards with his hands on the ground and a two-foot erection thrusting into the sky.

The statue was described as a tribute to Viagra and was unveiled in front of the Rupertinum Modern Art Gallery, one day before Charles was due to fly in for a visit to the Salzburg Festival.

Artist Ali Janka said: "We didn't do it to shock the prince and we hope he will get to see it. We think it's beautiful and has a distinctly royal theme about it, with the majestic arch of the man bending over.

"It was a double honour for us to know that Charles would be going past and would see all our hard work. "

The festival, staged each year in the city of Mozart's birth, is famous for its operas, dramas and concerts.

Britain's Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles attend the Mey Highland Games in Caithness, northern Scotland, August 9, 2003. Prince Charles was the guest of honor at the Mey games on Saturday, the first time the games have been held without the presence of the Queen Mother, who died in 2002.

Here is the article from hellomagazine.com on the Mey Highland Games. They used the same pics as Lyonnaise posted above.


Charles and Camilla Step Out for Highland Games

www.hellomagazine.com

11 AUGUST 2003
Prince Charles got into the mood by donning a kilt when he attended the Mey Highland Games at the weekend. And the 54-year-old, who was accompanied by his longtime companion Camilla Parker Bowles, also brought along a traditional shepherd's crook.

The Prince certainly looked to be enjoying himself, as he and Camilla watched a series of traditional Highland sports. He was also on hand to start the tug-of-war competition, which was eventually won by the Castle of Mey team.

From a small marquee filled with local dignataries, Charles and Camilla witnessed traditional Highland dancing and, of course, the tossing the caber event. They then did a lap of the field in their car, so as not to disappoint hundreds of wellwishers who turned out in the hope of seeing them.

Charles is currently staying at the Castle of Mey in Caithness, which the Queen Mother used to use as a holiday retreat. His visit comes just after he moved into her former residence, Clarence House, in London. And he is also following in his grandmother's footsteps by attending the Games, as she was a big fan in her time.

Whatever people think of Camilla, whatever names they call her, you have to admit that Charles loves Camilla and Camilla loves Charles. I never saw pictures of Charles as happy sitting next to Diana as he looks sitting next to Camilla. These are two people who have obviously loved each other for many years, people who respect each other and care deeply.

Yes--there is no reason he shouldn't be happy, even if he was too much of a jolt to propose to Camilla when they were younger!

Sure, why shouldn't Charles be happy even though his spoiled behavior made the lives of 3 people at least miserable -- his wife and children, and undoubtedly left long-term scars on his sons. If he can be happy despite that, he may not have much of a conscious.

If Charles insists on becoming king, it will be the end of the monarchy which may be just as well if that's all the better they can do for a king.

By spoiled behavior I mean that he's never shown any remorse for his being a philandering husband and furthermore, his saying on public TV he never loved Diana in the first place. Then he blames it all on his dad for making him. How much lower-class can one behave?

Sure, he and Camilla look happy together now, so Charles should be man enough to admit he was too much of a coward to marry Camilla in the first place-- to accept that responsibility himself, and not blame others.
