Hello magazine says they will be taking a (well-deserved) breather for a few days. duties commence the 12th. so we probably won't see them in connection with the Chinese visit. :(

Their attendance at the Norwegian state visit wasn't announced till late. They may still show up for some of these events.

For example, Charles may say during the interview that he was shocked at Diana's death. Some people will respond with "Liar!", "Hypocrite!", "Adulterer!" and others will go "how sad." Take your pick. The other question about this is that if some choose not to believe a word he says, why bother watching in the first place? What's the point?

This endless fretting and feigned outrage every step of the way, from engagement, wedding, tiara-wearing etc etc, all wrapped up in the moralistic and doom-laden prediction that any or all spell the demise of the House of Windsor, is not only tedious, but with the increasing acceptance of Camilla (with bells on this week!), becomes masochistic. Like it or not, time to move on, I say. Looking back, or looking forward: it's a choice.
.
The local media where I live (Tampa, Florida) has been pretty nasty since the Royal couple tour started-nasty towards Camilla's looks but otherwise they say overall they seem a happy couple, and even called Charles 'Prince Charming' in one article. We get the Tampa Tribune, and St. Petersburg press here. Some have mentioned 'carefully orchestrated' crowds whatever that means. But judging for myself the greetings seem sincere. Also the not so welcome greetings-there have been some protesters with signs like 'Camilla your no Princess'. CNN as usual interviewed the man/woman on the street and they too have made nasty comments-or said they didn't care about the Royal visit. This harks back to CNN's coverage (I think it was CNN) of C & C's wedding. One old Cornwallian called Camilla a nasty word, and it seemed CNN was determined to recreate the negative aspects. I'm willing to bet (to be fair to C & C) that there were alot of nice comments about them-but CNN chose not to show it. Anyway that was the news that was on the Royal Tour from the Tampa Bay aspect.

I hope Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are enjoying their really well deserved break for a few days.

I think it's quite impressive of them to return to their duties in England already on the 12th, considering the long and far away trip they have just returned from - having had such a tight schedule, plus adding all the pressure, expectations and media entourage they had to live with for so many days in a row.

The article is claiming that an MP called for debate on November 7 I believe regarding Camilla's title-or future title as Queen.
The Daily Express isn't one of the papers generally considered all that reliable; it isn't quite as muck-raking as the Sun, but that isn't saying much. If one MP is calling for a debate, that probably doesn't mean much. Lone MP call for debates on all sort of things and they usually don't happen.

Thank you for the explanation! I am not really sure what an 'MP' is either (I'm American) but as he works in Parliament it seemed important.

I looked up his site but there is no mention of it, at least not yet-the lastest news mentioned on the site is up the 7th of November:

MP is a member of parliament, sort of equivalent to a US congressman.

Since this thread turned into yet another discussion of the Charles/Camilla/Diana eternal triangle and speculation about Camilla's title and Diana's feelings and Charles's worthiness (or lack thereof) to be King, I've split out the digressions and merged them into the "Will Charles Ever Reign" thread. I hope this doesn't confuse that thread too much, since the new posts will go in there in chronological order, but I'm getting really tired of seeing the Charles-Camilla current events threads being turned into emotional sessions about their marital situation.

Please note that, since splitting and merging is a bloody pain, I'm reserving the right to just delete off-topic posts in future. Attempts to derail these current-events threads again will be noted, and people are going to start receiving warnings and eventually suspensions. This stuff simply isn't fair to the members who want to read about the thread topic, only to find it's been buried by off-topic digressions that belong in other threads.

I hope this is the right thread for this-I seem to keep putting a foot wrong since I have been welcomed to this wonderful Forum. I'm trying! :

Princes Private Diary

http://www.sky.com/skynews/article/0...461653,00.html

Has anyone heard anymore on this?

I agree with Prince Charles when he says in his PRIVATE journal, when talking about political advisors, 'that none of whom will ever have experienced what it is they are talking about'.

I hope that Clarence House follows through with it's threat to pursue and prosecute the person who stole the journal and sold it to this disgusting rag, called the mail. They knew it was illegally obtained! Gutter press indeed.

The Royal Family has released private diaries and letters after the person died but they don't do it very often. I wish they would do more and not wait so long after the person is dead.

Still to publish a diary while the person is alive is the epitome of crass. At least they waited till Diana was dead before they published her personal conversations.

I imagine the royals of all houses must be quite paranoid now. Whatever Charles wrote, it can't be any worse than Prince Philip's 'slitty eyes' comment when he was in China.

But the Mail on Sunday is impressed, "poignant, insighful and witty" not to mention "hughely entertaining" are the comments on this report. It also seems to have convinced the editor that he will make a fine King. Apparently HRH handwrites a detailed account of his trips abroad and a few photocopies are made and distributed to friends etc. so this is not a private diary in the usual sense and will eventually be published according to Clarence House.
Other gossip from the Mail is that the Duchess has been invited to spend Christmas Day at Sandringham with the rest of the family. My own news from watching the Remembrance Day ceremony is that she was wearing a lovely diamond brooch which I haven't seen before.

My first post, hope it's OK.

The Duchess doesnt need to be invited to Sandringham for Christmas. The whole royal family always spends the holidays together at either Sandrigham or Balmoral. Since the Duchess is family she is coming no matter what. It is like a small family reunion. No invite needed just some sort of relations. They are still private journals in that they are not ment to be released to the public. His journals are highly political and personal and are not ment to be made public. The Prince is to remain above politics in the public and this journal does not help that. Is the duchess wearing the same hat that she wore in the US. It is a lovely hat but hopefully she took out that corkskrew sticking out from it.

.

I still hope that the person responsible is hunted down as Clarence House has (according to Sky News) threatened. Prince Charles as you say arranges for copies to be distributed to friends and it would appear from the noises coming from Clarence House, that this was not an authorised copy.

Whether they will eventually be published or not, should be up to the Prince and not a nasty low life employee and a trouble making, money grabbing tabloid like the mail!

Well, I guess the Daily Mail has decided protocol has changed and Camilla needs a formal invitation to join the rest of the family at Sandringham for Christmas. She is HRH the Duchess of Cornwall and doesn't need an invitation to join her husband for family occasions.

It is just a way for the Mail to creat more drama and crazy stories. Isnt the world tired of the soap opera the british press creat of the royal family. For the first time since before the Charles and Diana marriage, the royal family is at peace. No one is fighting or denouncing the Queen and splashing their lives and miserys on the television. The royal family is doing its work in peace and mainting a low key profile. They are doing the work fantastically and life is back to the peacefull royal life.
