Well I hope that Charles dosn't take part in this circus. I relationship with Camilla is tacky enough without them attending Trump's third glitzy wedding.

I hope this is not true. They are not married! This is not proper at all! Eps. coming to the U.S. We already have trashy shows. He does not need to show off his discfunction on an official U.S. visit. If he needs to test the waters he needs to do it in Canada or some other place!

Oh. I don't think that Prince Charles went to the wedding so there might not be any pics. SOrry

I agree with you,Reina.If Charles want to win approval for Camilla,then America is the last place to do it.Most Americans adore Diana and think Charles is dull.

If Charles loves Camilla as much as he says he does. He needs not to show one minute and the next act as though they aren't a pair. I just think he needs to be like,
"Look, this is the woman I love and if you don't like well, that is your problem. If you can't invite her and me as a couple than don't invite either of us."

I don't particually like the woman but if he was willing to sacrifice his marriage to be with her he needs to be consistent with his actions.
The man needs a backbone.

He does not need to bring that situation to an official visit. Yeah he needs to show some backbone and get married and then he can bring her anytime. This is a very bad example he is setting. ALthough I think the institution of the British MOnarchy is superior, some of the membes are absolutely nuts and could learn a lesson from other royal ppl!

He should get married. But about the Windsors being nuts, that is what a superiority complex leads to.

an article from Guardian Unlimited....it's basically saying the government is checking the Prince of Wales income...and Camillia Parker Bowles being on the list as an "official member of the household" and the income from the Duchy of Cornwall were used to pay for Mrs Parker Bowles' "two part-time secretaries, a driver and a gardener for her Wiltshire home. The Prince also pays for her bodyguards, travel, jewellery, clothes, an adviser and stabling for her horses. She also now has an office at Clarence House. "
what da heck......paying for her jewellery, body guards, travel, clothes?!!!!

Well, where else is he supposed to get the money to pay for his significant other if not from the Duchy? I mean, you surely aren't suggesting that he should go out and rob banks or something.

How about if Ms. Parker-Bowles pays for her own clothes, travel, ect. Afterall, they are not married and she is merely his significant other. Why shouldn't she support her own lifestyle?

Elspeth,

doesn't he have his own money besides the allowance given to him yearly by the state (the taxpayer) assuming the revenues from the duchy are not his private property.

wonder whether Mrs. Keppel was kept by her lover or by the state.

If he is basically giving her an allowance through the english taxpayers there is something unmasculine about his not paying for his own, very personal bills.

Charles probably admires trumps enterprising skills.

I read that trump considered having his marriage broadcast live on tv, just like the royal families do and that his then bride to be did not allow it. So he does consider himself as a bit of a royal (an american one)

reina,

loving someone is surely not a disfunction and we can not expect him to go alone to all the parties etc. they are not married but she is his "girlfriend" and he is too old to be engaged and getting married is a problem, so this is it.

I do not know that the president and other americans will not approve, they will not want to "cast the first stone" to such a distinguishd guest and knowing the americans as I do, they will be VERY hospitable, to him and to her.

The Prince of Wales "owns" the Duchy of Cornwall. The income from the estates and the businessness is his to do with however he chooses. Charles does not receive money from the public purse. Surely people understand this, it is hardly a secret.

As well as her "income" (for official expenses) from the Civil List, the Queen has private income from, among other sources, the Duchy of Lancaster. She uses this as she likes.

If the Prince of Wales chooses to use some of his PRIVATE income to spend on his long-term companion, who's business is it? Would opinions be different if Camilla was pretty and frivolous?

Diana has gone, move on.

That there are trashy shows in the U.S. (or in any other country for that matter) is distinctly different and wholly separate from Charles' relationship with Camilla. It's not as if Charles' relationship with Camilla is the reason why there are trashy shows on in the U.S. or in another country.

And why is the relationship so dysfunctional? Because it's not a society-cut out relationship of two people who are in love getting married and living happily ever after? Charles tried that and it didn't work. And in Camilla he obviously has someone who cares about and supports him; someone who's opinon matters in his life and someone whom Charles obviously loves very deeply.

Charles and Camilla's relationship is much more functional than Charles and Diana's relationship ever was.

And just why exactly should Charles test the waters out "in Canada or some other place!"? As a Canadian I take great offence to that; it seems to imply superiority of one nation to all the others -- and that certainly isn't right.
