I really like the green Tweed effect and the velvet cuffs and collar. I'm not sure about the scarf though, I know it's fashionable but, it does look like rabbit tails .

Everyone seemed so happy to see them!:)

This article goes to show that the accusations bandied about at the time ie. that Camilla was a racist, were untrue.

Ah she's a racist? Knew there was something. Really - I suppose she'll be homophobic on Monday.

I'm sorry but doesn't that seem dumb? If this bodyguard thought he was in over his head and needed training, couldn't he have asked to be reassigned rather than wait for them to do it for him?

That has to be one of the most convoluted excuses I've ever heard. Good grief.

Is it dumb? He seems to have made quite a bit of money out of his lack of training.

No, dear, that was last Thursday. Don't tell me you missed it...

Oh no! Sadly I did. I didn't miss the baby-eating stories though did I?

Personally that article makes no sense to me, especially if you consider the articles that first came out. They spoke very well of Turner. I still say Turner got pissed and sued because he got ressigned if I remember to back up protection. His claim of being undertrained doesn't even make sense. Charles had him for over six months and is notoriously picky about who guards him. Charles is overprotective of Camilla, Turner would have to be very good to be given to Camilla. IMO Camilla innocently grabbed the female protection officer when she became available because she wanted woman. Only 2 woman are in that division. Turner took it badly and he is now 70,000 richer.

Sky News paper review this morning, mentioned one report that says it is costing £2.6 million, to guard Camilla's empty house. I missed which paper it was in. I would like to hear some evidence but, it does rather quosh another rumour that was flying around, namely that she spends most weekends there with her former husband.

It's strange how they are attacking Camilla's financing at the moment but, in their efforts to discredit her, they are showing all their former 'unnamed royal source' stories to be lies!

For that money I'll take the job and be the full-time watchman. :)

But Warren, I thought you were landed gentry, so why would you want to work for pocket money?

Even if AP-B was also staying there, surely he also has the right to spend time with his children and if they are staying with 'Milla then a family gathering would ensue.

Well, we don't actually pay Warren all that much here, you know. Poor chap probably does have to go and find other work to get a living wage.

There was me imagining him strolling about the mansion, or sat in his library in his smoking jacket, being served with Tea and crumpets.

But rumour and innuendo is so much more fun than boring old facts and logic. Where does Andrew Parker-Bowles live now he's remarried?

Where would these boards be without rumour and innuendo?

Would they be as interesting?

Personally I prefer to deal in facts and logic but others seem to prefer the rumour and innuendo side of arguments - don't they?

Well, unfortunately, unless you read news reports rather closely, it's sometimes a bit hard to tell the difference. But there are certainly a lot of people who prefer not to let the facts get in the way of a good story in all walks of life, not just boards about royalty.
