God that man is a low life leech!!

How would he like it if someone kept dragging the dirt out about his family. He obviously either has some sort of obsession with Diana (very unhealthy) or he sees her as a quick way to make money.

Even after nearly 7 years of death, People are still profiting from Diana. These base-born individuals are disgusting!

Diana was not perfect (show me a human being that is) and I do not revere her but I respect her for this. She was a girl from an inordinately priviliged background who REALLY took an interest in people. For all her status not one of her detractors has ever argued that she was a snob. Because they can't.

The Australian/New Zealand tour was in 1983 and the tour in Japan in 1985, I believe.

Month and year are fine for me. But if you know them, info about the precize day is welcome :)

There's an exhibit on the life of Diana, Princess of Wales coming to the U.S. starting October 10th, if you are in Florida you can view it at the Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Art. The museum website describes the exhibit this way:

”Direct from the Althorp Estate in England, the ancestral home of the Spencer family, comes this award-winning exhibition celebrating the life and work of Diana, Princess of Wales.

On display will be authentic memorabilia and film footage from Diana's childhood and her adult life, a collection of 28 dresses from her public engagements including her resplendent royal wedding gown, original jewels, artifacts, paintings and more.”

For more details and ticket information, go to the museum's website here:

LONDON, England (Reuters) -- Britain's Prince Charles was "taken to the cleaners" during his divorce with the late Princess Diana, as she took his entire personal fortune, the Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported.

"Princess Diana took every penny he had," Charles' former personal financial adviser Geoffrey Bignell was quoted as saying.

"I was told to liquidate everything, all his investments, so that he could give her the cash."

Diana, who was killed in a Paris car crash with her lover Dodi al Fayed in 1997, divorced Charles in 1996.

"She took him to the cleaners," said Bignell.

"He was very unhappy about that. That's when I stopped being his personal financial adviser, because he had no personal wealth left."
This is a total disgrace. Any divorce only entitles the wife to half of the wealth/assets no matter who was at fault! Diana & her lawyer obviously played the emotional hand for all it was worth.

IMO half of the money she recieved should have been returned to Charles as she had no right to it.

Oh come on.... She didn't take Charles to the cleaners. They gave her what they were willing to give her along with plenty of grief to go with it.

I agree completely. She got what she deserved, especially putting up with him and "his great love" for over 15 years. Anyway, the Duchy of Cornwall is a constant stream of income for Charles since he owns it ~ in my mind, he has a lot of potential personal wealth because of this ownership. I doubt very seriously that he'll ever be on the "dole".

My point was not wether he could afford it or not. Any divorce only entitles the spouse to 50% unless they can prove that they were the reason that the business was a success and were instrumental in making the money.

Remember that Charles did not own a house. Kensington Palace is the property of the British people and Highgrove is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall which Charles DOES NOT own. The duchy provides an income for the heir to the throne and Charles is the first heir to make the duchy make a profit. Previous Princes of Wales have simply lived off what the duchy provided without making efforts to make money. Remember that Charles VOLUNTARILY pays income tax on the duchy's income.

Diana was not going to have to go out to work, she had inherited a sizeable amount from her grandmother and the home at Kensington Palace was hers for life RENT FREE. The Queen was very aware that no matter what happened Diana was still the mother of a future king and should be treated as such.

Who receives the profit from the Duchy of Cornwell? From my knowledge, Charles does. Can't that profit be termed in any way as part of his personal wealth?

If Charles was robbed of his "personal wealth", as the Reuter's article states, "where" is he NOW getting the money to support (in numerous ways) Camilla Parker Bowles? ~ from a stashed - away piggy bank?

And, whose to say that the outcome of the monetary part of their divorce WAS NOT 50/50? I don't know the answers to these questions, however, you seem to. In my most humble opinion, Diana worked as hard as Charles did as the Princess of Wales. She worked hard and diligently for her charities and made personal contributions (from her own independent Spencer/Fermoy funds.)

Also, Charles didn't have to agree to "cash in" all of his personal wealth to get rid of Diana. His lawyer should have perserved against what Diana's lawyer was fighting for. He could have just said "No! I'm not agreeing to what my wife is asking for ~ so go back to the drawing board and come up with a better settlement where I don't have to suffer losing my entire personal wealth!" Playing the sympathy card or not, the Crown lawyers could have just said "NO." to her wishes.

Wymanda, the point now is moot. Diana is dead and I'm sure Charles has recovered "some" of which he was instructed to give her ~ for example, when Wills and Harry looked over the things their mother had left in her apartments at Kensington Palace after her death, Wills chose to take her "engagement ring" and from what I read, he slipped it in his jeans pocket. Wasn't that ring worth about 280,000 pounds? Maybe, if he sells it, he'll loan his dad a buck or two.

For my own safety, regarding Bear's rules and regulations about the "three strikes", I will no longer "argue" about this subject with you because I do not want to be thrown off this board! ~ especially over this trite subject of Charles' personal wealth when people all over the world are starving. I could unleash fathoms of ill feeling regarding Camilla and Charles and how they conducted their affair ~ right under Diana's nose from the VERY BEGINNING OF THEIR MARRIAGE. Oh, what a massive lie we all were to believe! Also, it appears that you are an expert on this subject of Charles and Diana's divorce settlement ~ and, I'm not in the mood to argue with experts. Therefore, this will be my last response to your arguments and posts. I'm sure you'll understand my position.
