Was that a solo engagment?

Camilla is much more stylish in Britian. I was a bit disappointed in America but she makes up for it. She looks good. She is looking thinner. Maybe it is the black but I saw a pic of her at a memorial service for a producer recently on Hello! and she looked thinner. Maybe its the black but anyway she looks good.

The office of the heir to the British throne, Clarence House, announced Thursday, Nov. 17, 2005, that Charles was giving up polo, the equestrian sport he has played for more than 40 years. A spokesman said Charles, who turned 57 this week, had "regretfully" decided not to return to the polo field next season

Trust me, bones don't heal as quickly at 57. Even a fall can be dangerous at the speeds they do.:)

He didn't like Diana very much - they were chalk and cheese and why would he want to spend time with her just because two kids had trundled off of the production line? He likes Camilla and they get on well - so spending time with her is a joy for him not a burden or a chore.

I said mother of his children, because I didn't want it sound like I thought he should spend time with Diana... He could have spent some time with Diana and tried to fix their problems. He never even tried! I think it is important that children see their parents work out problems, not run away from them.

Well, polo sounded as though it was a way for him to work out his frustrations, much as Diana would spend several hours on the phone to friends. It sounded as though the more time they spent together, the worse things got. Since he's pushing 60, it's about time he thought about giving up a sport as strenuous as polo. And it sounds as though Camilla has been instrumental in that decision if it's true that she said she wouldn't go to his polo games any more or whatever it is she's supposed to have said.

I totally agree with you but Don't worry, we know charles never loved diana.

I trust this thread isn't about to be derailed into another discussion of Charles and Diana's marital problems.
