Damned if he kept silent, and damned if he tells his side of the truth.

I agree Incas.

If Charles had never publicly admitted his adulterous relationship with Camilla there would've been whispers about it and tons of ink spilled over it in the press about what a coward and liar he was. Yet because he was adult enough to admit that he made mistakes in his life and in his marriage to Diana and yes, that he did cheat on her and owed up to his mistakes, he's still a jerk.

I think some people are so jaded by him because of what he did to Diana (disregarding the fact that it takes two to break up a marriage) that they can't even give him (or Camilla) due credit, whatever it may be for.

I would rather that Charles said "Yes, I did cheat on my wife. That was wrong of me" then to go on forever as if an affair never happened. (Plus Charles' confirmation of an affair actually serves to make Diana seem less hysterical in her public complaints about how her husband never loved her and kept in touch with his former girlfriend from the beginning of their marriage.)

I haven't seen Camilla "on duty" in what feels like forever. I miss her. Does anyone know when we'll see her again?

Perhaps, if we combine both of rchainho's news articles, we shall see Charles slaving over a hot stove making his own jam! Sort of like a royal Martha Stewart.

I'm not sure what an article about a speech he gave five years ago is doing in a news thread. I assume this Reith Lecture article does refer to a five-year-old speech?

She is way out of line here!! The taxpayers' money should not be used to guard her old estate because she needs to escape "the rigours" of Highgrove. That woman has been effectively running Highgrove for YEARS. What is so traumatic for her?? That has always been "her home"; it never truly belonged to Diana. What does she have to be upset about?? Is there trouble in paradise?? She got what she wanted and now she wants more!!

We are all entitled to have a sanctuary. Camilla chose to keep her home, which I believe is called Ray Mill Farm, possibly so that she has somewhere relatively informal where she can be with her children and can meet her friends informally. I would imagine that trying to have a few girlfriends to Highgrove for a nice "bitchy" lunch could be a little impossilbe. IMTS, how can you have a catty gossip with a butler, a footman & a couple of maids hanging about. Much better to have your own space where you can throw a salad together, have a nice bottle of wine with lunch and chatter to your hearts content without worrying that the servants will sell your coversation to the tabloids. As far as the "taxpayer" footing the bill to guard the place I would assume that the funds for this come from the Duchy of Cornwall estates which are not funded by the taxpayer. The duchy produces its own revenue on which Income Tax is payed. So if it were public money paying for the guards then surely the Duchy, as a taxpayer, is simply getting it's money's worth for the tax it pays!

Tiaraprin, would you have objected in the same manner if Diana had her own place that was provided with security that was payed for from the Duchy's revenue or from public funds? I think not!

I'm not sure about that. I mean, they have their home in London and they have Highgrove and the use of Birkhall; it's not as though there aren't options. I'd have thought that if she's really concerned about security, she'd want to stay in houses that have a lot of security already rather than have to turn her own house into yet another high-security bolt hole.

If the press and the public know where her house is, she isn't going to be any more safe there than at Highgrove. I assume she might want to hold onto it so that she can give, sell, or leave it to her children, but I'm a bit mystified why she'd want another place as well as Highgrove, just a few miles down the road. The only thing I can think is that she might want to hang onto her own place for the possibility of Charles predeceasing her so that she isn't dependent on either the Queen or William for somewhere to live. Other than that, it seems like a waste of resources.

I see what you are saying Elspeth, but Ray Mill is HER house. She isn't reliant on anyone for it and can be herself there without the prying eyes of servants etc. Lets face it, from all accounts Charles likes to live quite formally and I suppose this could become a little tedious. Perhaps 'Milla likes somewhere she can wander around in sweat pants & a top, her slippers and eat Cheese on Toast in front of the fire without worrying about crumbs on the antiques or some sneaky servant taking pictures to sell to The Sun!

I wonder how true the report is. The Sun is the only source for this info and we all know how reliable IT is.

But if it is true this move doesn't make much sense to me either. Looks like the rigours of living with a mini-police station would far outweigh the rigours of Highgrove. No doubt that Camilla would need such security if she spent considerable time there. She and Charles have gotten a lot of hate mail but the idea of police walking around my home even if they're there to protect me would be more stressful than the occasional servant.

If she just wants to hang on to it to live in after Charles dies, she doesn't have to stay in it, she just can refuse to sell it.
